which one is better? I am the mother and the child is 12 wanting to live with me. Her dad is very well known and liked so I need the BEST!

Both attorneys are very well qualified. Remember though that there is no magic age when the child decides where she wants to live. Until the child turns 18, the best interest of the cild will control.

Steve Thorton is an awesome attorney. I was in a very long/ugly custody battle for three years. After alot of money and nonsense court hearings I finally hired Steve. My case was settled within 3 months, giving me custody. He is a great guy, and handles himself well in the court room!!

I have been in a couple different custody battles for the past couple years. Steve Thornton represented my husband's ex-wife and we had Leia Knee. Steve Thornton charged his ex-wife a huge retainer and she lost ( assuming you understand I say lost by she didn't retain sole custody and get restricted visitation.) My husband got joint visitation and standard visitation after her having sole for 6 years. His child support was even lowered. Steve Thornton ruined her case. Then I have been in a custody case with my child and also have had Leia Knee. She is a very good attorney and won't push you off on a paralegal. She was well worth what it has cost me. Keep in mind it has a lot to do with who your judge is and also what situation you and your ex are in. Whatever the situation there is no justice I have found but hopefully you will get a conclusion you can better live with. Good luck from one mother to another!

Thornton is by far more likely to win than Denton. She is not a great attorney while he seems to do quite well in divorce cases.

How is Thornton if there are no custody disputes but disagreements over money and property? Would a woman do a better job as the lawyer in this case?

Either Denton or Thornton would be a very good choice. They are both great divorce/family court lawyers. A lawyer is limited by the details of the case. If you've got a bad case, no lawyer is going to win. Good lawyers earn their pay when the playing field is level. One Who Knows must have had an iron-clad case to come out on top with Knee.

ROFL! Yes, keep that bill running with ol'Joy. She'll be sure to charge you for each and every phone call, every minute, whether or not she knows what the heck she's doing.

Stick with Thornton. Denton only knows how to try to settle and is afraid to take a case in front of a judge.

If you need to know who is better Thornton can afford a big house in Mt Ayr and Denton can't.

Thornton has been a lawyer 8-10 years longer than Denton. Not all successful people want to live in a subdivision like Mt Ayr. Denton has a very big house in Briarwood with a pool.

Maybe you're right. Ask Thornton what he thinks.

I dont need to ask what he thinks. He's a man and she's a woman and its the law profession. Of men for men and by men. In this town its Broderick and Thornton and all the rest are far behind.

Why dont you have joint custody that she lives with both of you equally. Dont waste your money and F with the kid- a child needs both parents.

I find it interesting that you say that when both of the family court judges that the case would be in front of are WOMEN..
