Parenting Evaluator
Lynn was both thorough and dedicated, to hearing both sides, in our custody dispute over our children. She was professional and understanding. Her report was issued in a timely manner. I highly recommend her.

Biased report favored mother but was ignored by the judge at trial
My ex and I did not consult these reviews, and hired Lynn in a high-conflict divorce. Lynn produced a sloppy report that included outdated information. She wrote a very one-sided report favoring the mother and recommending sole custody. She charged over $10K, plus more to appear at trial (and she made a billing mistake, overcharging me!). We went to trial, where the judge disregarded almost everything she said and ordered 50-50 custody. I dodged a bullet there, but pay attention to the above reviews and avoid Lynn Tuttle at all costs!

Lies in her own report
Lynn Tuttle lied all over our final report. She mixed up who said what, lied to make their favored parent look more involved in the children's lives than even they said they were, reported false evidence as fact without verifying, lead the children with yes or no to answer questions to contradict their original answers, and totally disregarded pivotal family testimony of the children living in a hostile home environment, which was the direction the children's answers were revealing, and Lynn's own transcript clearly steered the interview a different direction.

Awful, Unprofessional, Disorganized, Blaming Her Shortcomings On Her Clients
I have seen some very unethical law professionals, but Lynn Tuttle is the worst. She unethically engaged with one party, who immediately convinced her that the other party was the worst parent ever. The bias was felt by me from the very first email from Lynn. He is very haughty, privileged, and treated me like I was an immigrant trash. She rescheduled appointments repeatedly, including on the day of the appointment, while the children's activities had to be canceled to accommodate her shifting schedules. She ignored the witnesses from my side, and kept regurgitating the other party's witness lies, provided by that family's worst representatives. Many of them refused to participate in the mud slinging, including my mother-in-law. Lynn interviewed the kids, and anything they said about the other party, she blamed on me - I was not even there when the kids experienced all of this!!! She completely ignored the kids' wishes - and she is supposedly there to protect their interests?! She sure was not! She made the kids so uncomfortable with her interrogation, that they dreaded the very name. One of them eventually just shut her off during her multi-hour questioning, because she kept asking the questions to trip him, to get him to say what she wanted to hear - that is a direct quote from the child. She was there to support the lies the other party fed her. She made up her mind on the case before she even met me or the kids. She is the worst and DANGEROUS! PLEASE SAVE YOUR KIDS A LOT OF ANXIETY, AND KEEP THEM AWAY FROM THIS HORRIBLE INDIVIDUAL, WHO SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO TOUCH HUMANS, FORGET DEALING WITH CHILDREN!!!

Worst lawyer ever
Over the years I have seen many attorneys good and bad. Without a doubt Lynn Tuttle is the worst! She has horrible attention to details. Even after going over it twice (and taking notes) she still manages to get the important dates and facts wrong. On average it took her more than a week to return my calls and emails. Each time though she would have some excuse, like "I was very busy" or "I was out of town". On the positive side, she is relatively inexpensive as a lawyer. But even if she would be completely free - I would never use her again.

Bad, Biased and unorganized. Not a credit to her profession.
I'm a 54-year-old father, I've never been arrested. I don't do drugs. The police have never come to my house. I have owned a business of over 30 years. My last speeding ticket was 10 years ago when my wife and I were riding our Harley's through the farmlands of Wyoming. I was married for 13 years and have an 8-year-old son. I have tolerated my in-laws telling me I'm stupid, I'm lazy and I'm cheap, and that my son would be stupid if he didn't attend SCD. My in-laws are European each with a PhD. Me, I'm a farm boy from Oregon that made good money fishing in Alaska. When I finally told my in-laws to F***/off for telling me my son would be stupid if he didn't attend SCD I was served with divorce papers five days later. I felt a 50/50 co-parenting was fair. However, my wife's parents didn't think so. Since we couldn't agree on an equitable parenting plan the attorneys hired Lynn Tuttle. Lynn's process took better than 8 months, costing over $9,000 and I only met with her twice for a total of 4 hours. Part of Lynn's process (next to losing crucial fax/emails) is to have each parent provide 3 letters regarding each husband / wife's parenting ability. I supplied what Lynn wanted; 3 support letters of how I am as a father. I do all the cooking, shopping, I do laundry, I clean the house, I'm a house Dad and involved. Additionally I spend 2 - 3 days a week at my son's school at lunch. However when it came to my ex-wife, her (3) letters didn't support her parenting ability, but rather focused on criticizing me. Describing me as an alcoholic, abusive, and incompetent with added accusations of "hiding money". There was even mention of me "Peeing off a dock 26 years ago". Now what does this have to do with my wife's parenting skills? Absolutely NOTHING. Lynn didn’t know that 2 of the three letters provided were from sub-contractors for my ex-wife with one of them receiving over $50,000 / year in compensation. For my own self-help to deal with the bullying my In-laws were inflicting I attended Anger Management, (self-enrolled), for 16 sessions. I learned how to deal with her family bullying me for being uneducated, and much more. However, the ink hadn't even dried on our deposition and my ex-wife's attorney sent a letter to Lynn stating only "Mr. Schneider didn't get anything from Anger Management". Lynn gave me ZERO opportunity to rebut these accusations. Instead, ALL the letters became apart of the parenting plan that puts restrictions on the time I get with my son. I'm not a perfect parent. It's hands on learning. But I now realize the "only resolution" to a Lynn Tuttle involvement is someone is going to have their time restricted with their children. And, you'll be required to attend a classes of what Lynn likes to think is needed help. It doesn't matter if you're the mother or the father, I'll almost guarantee you you'll have to attend some type of Anger Management and then the Wellsprings or similar program. Combined, a good year of your life and $1,000's of dollars of cost. And dealing with the humiliation of it.

She is completely biased towards women. Seh took 7 months and is still not done. I could on forever, she is terrible. Avoid her at all costs!

Would not recommend her as a Parenting Evaluator to anyone. She was late to appointments and even had to call her to remind her of an appointment when she was a no show. Took large retainer and immediately went on two vacation in a short period of time without informing us. She was very disorganized and sometimes absent minded. It took her 7 months to do a report instead of 3 months. Her poor work ethic made it very difficult to work with her. Used our life savings to pay her hefty bills also most $8,000 and she wanted to drag it further out. We had to put a stop to it. Her sloppy work was not worth our time or money!!! I am sure there are other Gal's/Parenting Evaluators out there with much better moral, ethical and work values. Do your research but avoid her.
