Chuck Szurszewski is my attorney for my separation, divorce, and spousal support modification proceedings. My divorce was extremely acrimonious. The initial proceedings took more than two years, over one issue; my ex not wanting to pay spousal support. Adding to the difficulty of my divorce was that I no longer resided in Thurston county, let alone Washington state, when the motion was filed. Travel would have been very difficult for me, as I have a rare leukemia, and was dealing with issues of chemotherapy side effects. Chuck and his team handled virtually everything for me.
Through delay after delay - my ex having to retain new counsel two separate times - and not being able to come to an agreement, we were finally scheduled for trial. I had no fear of losing, because I know that Chuck fights for what is right in the Family Law Court. With mere hours to go before the start of trail, an agreement was reached, with Chuck at the helm of my case. We work extremely well as a team. I even persuaded him to request additional attorney fees be paid by my ex, since he had cause so many delays. Although Chuck did not believe the judge would approve, he did add these to the proposed settlement offer. However, they were, and I was awarded an equitable judgment.
Due to my ex having had his maintenance amount modified a few years ago, we just returned to negotiations. We have now successfully restored the order to its original amount. Chuck undertook my case this time around as a follow-up, and we were able to keep things out of the courtroom.
Whenever I speak with Chuck, I am left feeling better, in no small part due to his uplifting laugh. He is genuinely a jovial person, who likes to help others. His work within the community of which I was a member and loved so much, matters to me immensely. When I met Chuck, it was if I had known him for years. He simply has a way of putting you at ease. For me, going through what was at the time the most difficult thing I had experienced, Chuck guided me through the catacombs of dank and darkness, reminding me that there is indeed light on the other side, and to leave all the bundles of unhealthy energy behind. I am blessed to’ve found Chuck Szurszewski to’ve represented me for all things related to my separation, divorce, and spousal support modifications. I do not hesitate in recommending him to anyone.
