The best attorney, that's a tough referral to provide. The best attorneys in child placement might not be the best for you. For instance, what is your financial situation and what is the financial situation of your former husband(don't answer this on here, this is just a question for you to consider)? Have you tried contacting the Dane County Bar Association? They run a pretty good referral service and they should be able match you up with a competent attorney. Otherwise you might want to initially check out UW Law's Family Law Clinic, they should provide some good initial assistance and should be able to provide a good referral if you need it.

I tend to agree with the previous answer.
A lot of the outcome tends to be driven by the county and the judge. So, just because one has had a lot of experience doesn't mean they will prevail. One thing that is for sure is an attorney with a strong reputation will put a lot of time into the result and likely at their rate run up one heck of a bill. I have seen attorneys charge $20,000 in a one week period. So, you would have to put your limits on what you can afford, and what you then could expect.
As to your underlying issue. You are venting. But what you need to do is sit down and talk to an attorney and lay out proof of what has already happened. To start go get the files from the clerk of courts and pay for copies. Then you will have something to talk about, because no one is taken without due process. So, the question is what was due process in this case.
