If you're reading my review you are probably looking for a divorce attorney that can help you. I also read reviews and that's how I found Todd DeVallance.
When I met Todd it was on a Sunday morning in the middle of summer when his building was closed and only security could unlock the doors the elevators needed to be started and the air conditioning was off. What impressed me was that Todd was not a 9-5 attorney who looked at my case to bill like inventory. The fact that meeting me on a weekend when most attorneys would wait till their next "business" day to meet you, impressed me.
Through out my divorce Todd was there for me. My divorce was a very difficult one and my ex would play legal games running up my bill. He could financially afford to play these legal games and left me without funds to keep fighting. Most attorneys would have dropped me since I was unable to pay. Todd did not abandoned me and was able to convince a judge to grant us the money from my ex for my legal fees. These are just a couple of examples of Todd. There were many other positive things he did through out my case.
I've been around other lawyers but they are not like Todd. He's always polite honest and I found him funny at times which you need a good laugh through a hard time in your life. I know that I will call Todd DeVallance if I need future legal help. I highly recommend him to you. I don't think he will disappoint.

Todd represented me as the petitioner in a divorce case that went to trial. We had a mutual goal for a reasonable settlement with my best interests in mind. He did an excellent job of representing me and my settlement was even better than what I expected. Todd has enough court experience to read cues from the judge & deliver an argument the way a judge wants to hear it. He didn't waste my time or the courts on trivial details that wouldn't impact the case or affect the judges ruling. Todd is considerate & genuine and I never felt that this was just another case to him. If you need a family law attorney I would highly recommend Todd & the TSAI Law Company.

So after hiring 2 previous lawyers I finally hired Todd. Now I know that there are lawyers and there are people like Todd DeVallance. Honest, prepared, insightful and confident top the list of many many wonderful things I can say. Best evidence of his talent is that he's got me as a client for life.

I have been having difficulties finding an attorney that does not have any conflicts with my case and Todd and his team have been very helpful reassuring me that there is not any conflicts with his firm.

Todd is great! He is smart, honest and reasonable. He never once promised me anything or told me stuff just because he knew it was what I wanted to hear. He actually told me the opposite of what I wanted to hear because he kept me informed on the law, and what he has experienced, which was appreciated. He was always very real with me. Todd and his assistant Marcus always kept me informed as to what was going on with my case and where we stood. It was a very long drawn out process, with multiple continuances before actually going to trial and they both made the situation as minimally stressful as possible and tried to keep my costs low. By the time we went to trial, I was very confident with our case and everything Todd and Marcus had prepared and we won everything I was asking for. Todd was a Rockstar in court and I was so happy to have him on my side! I would recommend him to anyone looking for a family attorney. He's personal and it shows. You won't be treated like just another customer, he treats you like a friend.

I couldn't have more pleased with Todd DeVallance and his team. Meeting with him and discussing our options for adding my son's father whom has passed away to his birth certificate. Todd and his team assured me and took all my worries about how to present the nessarry documents for the courts.
I couldn't be more pleased with everything and thank Mr DeVallance from the bottom of my heart.

Mr. Todd DeVallance/the Tsai Law Company: My previous team and I were perilously close to trial date, with no valuation of my husband’s business in sight. At the first meeting, Mr. DeVallance talked to me about process, theory, law, went online to see which judge would be presiding. He took me on, won a continuation, so instead of racing to trial, we moved along methodically and efficiently. We created a witness list, he created a detailed spreadsheet of assets. His paralegal assistant Leah Dawson filled me in on procedure and the purpose of every action—and remained a source of personal support. I was nervous at mediation, but Mr. DeVallance stayed focused and alert and aggressive, and we won a very favorable settlement. Mr. DeVallance operates with his client in mind, he’s clear-sighted, smart and energetic, professional, works within a framework of good practice and good values. My outcome might have been different if I hadn’t found the Tsai Law Company and this team—I rate paralegal Leah Dawson and Todd DeVallance very highly.

Todd and Marcus his paralegal are awesome. I can't even describe how good he is. He is also a great guy and a very kind, caring person. He helped me through the most difficult process of my life. They know their stuff. He was so on top of things, organized and a great support. Todd is not about the money. He could have charged me way more. He tried to contain costs and did everything he could to help me. My settlement went great and we didn't have to go to court. Seriously the best attorney. Do not use anyone but him.

Divorce is a very difficult and emotional thing, Todd DeVallance not only walked me through my legal rights and fought hard for me but he also helped me set myself up for a bright future and come to terms with what I could legally do, what I needed to do and what options there were for me. I am grateful for the expertise, the support and the referrals that Mr. DeVallance and TSAI Law firm gave me.

After looking at reviews, calling and talking to a handful of different attorneys, I eventually called Todd's office and was connected to him right away. He agreed to meet with me the very next morning to discuss my case. I wanted someone good and I wasn't disappointed. I let my instincts guide me and they were right on. From the start, Todd made me feel important to him. He spent time discussing my case and answered all of my questions, telling me what I could expect with my situation and outlined a detailed plan including possible experts he recommended in my case.
Actually, at the first meeting, after Todd reviewed the tax returns that I had brought with me, he mentioned some deductions that had been missed, resulting in me filing amended returns and getting thousands back. Thank you Todd!!
As I look back, what Todd had predicted on that initial visit all came true, plus much more. Todd always returned my phone calls and emails. Todd made the impossible, working with my husband, possible, so I could make it to the other side in one piece. I relied on Todd to guide me through the turmoil, to be in the best position for me emotionally as well as financially. With Todd there by my side, he gave me confidence to make it through. Todd was phenomenal in encouraging me, as I relied on him heavily for legal advice and putting my mind at ease with my concerns. There were some curveballs thrown and Todd sidestepped them like a pro calling the opposing parties bluff. Todd was always concerned about my comfort level, telling me it was my call as to what I could handle. Just knowing he was there if I ever needed him gave me the strength that I needed. He was who I needed him to be for me, always having the right advice for me at the right time. He has a magical way of connecting with people, making them feel important. Todd's caring concern and heart of gold kept me focused and able to persevere.
Todd is smart, energetic, caring, professional, competent and hardworking with an extremely charismatic personality. When you put all these wonderful traits together you have an exceptional divorce attorney. Todd may care too much. He works hard and is on your side. Todd is someone you can trust because he will do his very best for you. You can't go wrong with Todd! He is the very best and he never let me down.
Todd is a busy attorney and I can see why. Many people that I spoke to who know Todd told me just how good of an attorney he is; including former staff, experts in his field and fellow attorneys. When I mentioned these praises to Todd he was always gracious and acted like he was hearing them for the first time.
I will always be thankful to Todd and Tsai Law for standing strong with me, with my best interest in mind. The settlement I received was better than I had imagined. With all of Todd's preparation in my case, the end result was fabulous. Todd prepared my case from the start like it was going to trial, even though 70% of cases settle at mediation. A great attorney is always prepared and that is Todd. It is so important to hire the right attorney and I'm so glad that I did. I will never forget this experience. I really like Todd and I truly appreciate everything he did for me and I'm extremely grateful!
