I highly recommend John Kydd as a family law attorney.
Mr. Kydd has represented me since 2009 for multiple custody issues post-divorce up to current issues in 2013.
As my divorce/custody case was very complex, it was very important for me to find an attorney who was knowledgeable about international divorce and custody issues. I also wanted an attorney who was empathetic to my economic situation and who would strive to get the best possible results for me and my children. John is that kind of lawyer. He cares about his clients and seeks to find reasonable and beneficial outcomes. He is a vigorous researcher and keeps up to date on matters of family law. He leaves no stone unturned. From Child Support issues, Parenting Plan/Safety issues to Relocation, John got me results.
I would highly recommend John Kydd to any parent seeking an outstanding, trustworthy family lawyer.

John has been my lawyer since the beginning of my divorce and his expertise and guidance got me through a very difficult situation. John is always very well prepared, and he knows his stuff, both the law and the practical ways to efficient move the case forward in an emotionally- charged situation. He and his paralegal, Linda, were always on top of deadlines and extremely organized. We had a difficult and nasty lawyer on the other side for the first part of the case. John was able to deal with her effectively without ever losing his professionalism.
I am a lawyer as well, and I know great legal work from merely good legal work. John just did an excellent job.
