I interviewed four attorney's and Paul Battan stood out as the attorney who would be the most likely achieve the outcome I sought for my forthcoming dissolution and custody case. Paul held a genuine interest in determining what issues were most important to me and what would be the most beneficial for the children. Paul encouraged me to maintain co-parental communication and to rally around the children while he worked my objectives through the legal channels. Although this wasn't intuitive at the time, as I was willing to fight it out, working it out was certainly going to be more productive. It did not take very long to see that Paul's reputation for being knowledgeable and tactically sound would be very challenging for the opposition. Throughout Paul treated my ex-wife and her attorneys with respect. In the end I was awarded primary custodian of my two children, the home and achieved an arrangement that has fostered reasonable communications with my ex-wife. Thank you Paul.

Paul Battan is an outstanding attorney. He is very knowledgeable and informative. He was able to look at my case and give me options and ideas on how I could go about making a stressful situation better. I am not a huge fan of lawyers to begin with but have to say that if I ever need a lawyer again, I will not hesitate to go to Mr. Battan.

I have known Paul for the entirety of my legal career (20+ years) and have worked numerous cases with him as opposing counsel. He is skilled, honest and diligent in the representation of his clients both in court and in mediation. He is a skilled negotiator and is highly effective in resolving conflict. I have referred cases to Paul and will continue to do so as I have confidence in his abilities.
