Thank you
When I was served with a divorce I thought I would handle it by myself even though my soon to be ex had a lawyer. I learned very quickly that was a bad idea. There are way too many laws, rules, procedures, etc that have to be followed. Doing it myself went downhill pretty quickly so I wanted to get a lawyer. I asked some people for help finding a lawyer, and several of them gave me Andy's name. He is great at explaining things so that you understand them even when there are a whole lot of moving parts. I was amazed at how well he understands people and can predict what will happen or people will do. After he got involved we eventually came to a settlement that basically gave me what I asked for to start with.

Saved my kids
I was faced with an extremely high conflict situation where a bunch of false statements had been made about me, and I was worried for my children's future. I didn't know how to pick a lawyer but got his name from two different friends. He was understanding of my circumstances and answered all of my questions. He was candid about how he saw my case and would explain what he thought we should do and why. He knew how things would go and he would plan three or four steps ahead. He is extremely busy and not always available by phone or to respond to email quickly which made me worry a little at first. I would go in and talk with him and feel better, though. His assistant, Jodie, is great and answers questions. In court during the trial was when I really understood why he is recommended highly and so busy. All the things came together and I would realize why certain things had been done, even little things from months before. He is commanding and almost intimidating in court and knew what was called for. I was nervous and scared for my kids, but felt better because how he seemed most at home being in a courtroom and trial and how he could deal with anything. I will never forget seeing my ex wife get flustered and angry so the judge saw who she was. My kids are safe now and I don't want to think what their future might been if I had a different lawyer, especially at the trial.

Client
Mr. Ivers was outstanding in handling our case. He was very professional, highly skilled in handling our hearings and the final trial. We were impressed by his thorough preparation for his presentations and his straightforward way to focus on the major points of what we were trying to accomplish. Accessibility to his office and administrator were also a plus.

Who do you call when your teenage daughter prefers independence over parents?
Attorney Andy Ivers waded into a messy situation in which our minor daughter was seeking emancipation in order to carry on a relationship with a twenty-three year old man. This situation included multiple false accusations against her parents and grandparents that resulted in three unfounded DHS investigations. Attorney Ivers provided excellent legal counsel and went above and beyond to make the process as painless as possible. His office staff is efficient, communications were timely, billing was concise. Attorney Ivers spent time investigating the facts behind the case and drew from his vast experience to help us understand the complicated legal world that our daughters actions thrust our family into. On multiple occasions he spent time in conversation with our daughter attempting to encourage her to make different choices for the sake of our family. In addition to conducting himself in a professional manor in court appearances with us we genuinely felt he cared about the future of our family. When faced with the painful crossroads of signing our minor daughters emancipation he drafted a letter for me (the mother) to draw from in the future when we hope our daughter will return to our family. We keep this letter on file so that we will be able to navigate the difficult conversations that we hope will come about when we get to reunite with our daughter some-time in the future.

affordable and good advice, but if you need several consultations, you could be left hanging.
this lawyer guided me with good advice with a parental interference case, and got me to be able to see my son again after not seeing son for 4 mo from ex wife issues, of which i will forever be grateful to the lawyer. he was helpful but was constantly busy, and indicated he didn't have a lot of time. i honestly feel he was trying to make time, but in the end i was called by his secretary and told that in the time frame i needed help, i would be better off finding another lawyer service, they did provide me a list and a contact number to find lawyers. this was when i was getting ready for a hearing that was coming up in 1 week. but for the time that i was getting advice from this lawyer it was better than i could have done on my own. the one piece of feedback i would like to give to him is if they new they would not be able to help me further then dont take money from me to put into trust fund. of course it is possible that they didn't realize the time involved, or that i would require more than an hour consulting a month until a few days after i made the deposit. it seems like i will get most of it back, but it might be some time. we will see, it seems more like a staffing competence rather than lawyers.... i'm used to professional lawyers from the past but from a larger organized firm. this lawyer is more affordable and i would use him again if i would have assurances for how much help they can and can not do, what they are willing to accept as a consultant, and how often i can contact them, and when i would get a response. even though i think this lawyer has good advice, and is affordable it is really just one or two people that run the show, and they need to learn to organize better, or get better help to organize and i hope they take this feedback and i wish them success. i feel this lawyer would do better working at a larger firm than deal with all the hustle and logistics of a business.

Don’t waste your money
I retained Mr. Ivers to represent me in my divorce. The whole process took almost a year. Mr. Ivers was mediocre at best. I dealt with his assistant Jodie most of the time (who was awesome). When we went to trial, Mr. Ivers left out many key pieces. I was very dissatisfied with his performance in court and should’ve fired him months ago.

"I have worked with Andy on many cases and find him cooperative and knowledgeable."
Divorce and separation Attorney | May 05
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I have had the opportunity to work with Andy Ivers both as an opposing counsel and also in a case where we were on the same side. In both instances I have found him professional and highly competent. More importantly, he has the rare talent to know when an issue is worth fighting about and when it is a waste of the clients money. In addition I have seen first hand how he cares about his clients. People who hire him are lucky to have him in their corner."
Family Attorney | Apr 22
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Andy is an outstanding lawyer. I have worked with him in the same firm, and I have had cases against him since then. Andy is a strong advocate for his clients and approaches each case with the highest integrity. He is well respected in the community, and always a pleasure to work with."
