Hello, I'm a man from Ashley county and I'm going thru a child custody battle with the ex. I have a lawyer now but I'm very displeased with my attorney as of now. I'm looking for some lawyers in union county that you the people from union county would use yourselves if you were going through a custody battle. Any replies are appreciated. Thank you.

Where else should I ask people's opinion on a good lawyer? You tell me a better place and I will ask there also. I'm not from union county but I figured there was some good lawyers in eldorado.

Of course everyone will have their own opinion but I used Mary Thomason. And she won my custody case that I was served with.

I am a man. Mary was my divorce lawyer. I wasn't seeking custody but she did a good job. I would hire her again and have on other matters.

I would use Mary again in a heartbeat. Griggs was the other attorney. He ripped me a new one. Well tried to bit ended up just embarrassing himself. He went way overboard with his trying to drag me through the mud. But some people love him To each is own.

Gary Burbank, in my opinion is the best, most honest Attorney in El Dorado, however, I do not know if he does custody cases. If he does not, he might steer you to a good fellow attorney. From past experiences, I would not recommend Griggs, as I have been through 2 custody battles with my stepsons and both lost. While you cannot put a price tag on your kids,give a lot of consideration to this before investing the money, because it IS difficult. Between my 2 stepsons, they lost 14,000.00. Also, from past experience would not recommend Lightfoot. Hope this is helpful, and best wishes, if you proceed....you will need MUCH good, indisputable evidence...and do not forget that called witnesses will lie on the stand...even if sworn to the BIBLE.

Yeah......she was a "girly".....like I said....more difficult for men to win custody.

Thanks everyone for the replies. Yes I am a man so I know it's gonna be harder for me. Let me explain my situation a little better. I have joint custody now but me and the ex had a huge fight over some things and now she has filed a motion to deny me visitation rights. Well we haven't seen a judge yet but my attorney now is basically saying we are at my exes mercy and I can't see them until we see a judge. I don't buy that at all! I'm thinking until a judge tells me I can't see them I should be able to see them just like always no matter what my ex wants or not! Am I right??? My attorney is basically letting me take this slap to the face. I need an attorney who is hardcore and will get in there and fight for me to have my visitation restored! I'm not wanting full custody. I just don't want my visitation revoked! Thanks again for the replies.

Absolutely right. You write down every little thing. No one can deny you anything unless the judge does it.

Ron Griggs got my husband custody of his daughter right out of the divorce. The mom wasn't a druggie but did/does have very questionable character. We've continued to use him and he's always done very well. He's not cheap though.

Michael Frey from Camden got me custody of my two kids, I think he does bankruptcy court in Union County but his office is in Ouachita, He was awesome for me, and wasn't horribly expensive.

My stepson also had joint custody, but against our advice, went for full custody and lost (via Ron Griggs). If the Judge upholds your visitation/joint custody rights, I would recommend leaving it at that. God luck and best wishes to you and your children. I know it is tough.

What is that suppose to mean.... "Girly"
It should be more difficult. A mother had a very special bond with her children. Well I should say most mothers do. A bond that no man can have. Just because he doesn't agree with everything the mother does doesn't mean he can take the kids. If those kids are loved and taken care of then leave it be. And yes people will lie on stand. A father will do anything for his sons.... Even a devoted Christian
