I am in my 80's and easily confused by legal matters. I called Robert Nordyke for a free consult. It was amazing. He took his time and explained everything. Who says there are no free lunches! Thank you, Bob.

Mr Nordyke is an amazing lawyer and really listens to your wants, needs and concerns. I feel super comfortable coming to him with any arising problems and he has been a wonderful help to my case. Definitely recommend. Everyone knows or has heard of him, and never once have I heard anything negative. He is amazing.

Nordyke is cheap for a reason. He did the bare minimum and most basic divorce agreement to make it easier on himself. He did not fight for me. I agreed to a 30%/70% custody situation with my ex (she having the 70%) and found out later that I easily could have argued for more. I knew nothing of the divorce process, so relied on Nordyke's experience to lead me down this path. Because I lacked the knowledge I settled on this arrangement and now cannot go back and re-negotiate (or if I did try it has a small chance of success). My new lawyer had to fix a lot of things that were wrong on Nordyke's original divorce decree. Nordyke had my total amount of custody wrong, which affected my child support payment and resulted in me overpaying my ex by $200/month for the past 2 years. He didn't have anything in the paperwork about my spousal support going away if my ex remarried. When she did remarry I could only reduce it (so yes I am still paying spousal to her even after she has remarried) since we didn't have it in the original document that Nordyke produced. Finally, the divorce paperwork said that when the children turn 18 and move out of the house/go to college she would continue to get child support instead of the support going directly to them. My new lawyer was successful in fixing these issues. Also, Nordyke urged me to say antagonistic things in our negotiations back and forth to my ex that I was uncomfortable doing. I followed his advice, assuming he was the expert. This backfired majorly. This made my ex extremely angry and made the process even more stressful and difficult than it already was. Even though other lawyers may be more expensive in the area, it's well worth it to go to someone else. In the long run, my new lawyer is saving me $20,000 over the course of the divorce agreement even after factoring in his fees. But if I would have went with him in the first place, I would have saved a lot more and would be able to see my kids more/have more custody.
