Best Divorce Attorney in Marion

If you are thinking divorce be very careful. There is rarely a "fair" divorce....especially if children are involved. If your assets are simple you can actually do it on your own and spend little money. However if you have complicated debt/assets and aren't willing to spend lots of time hashing it out with your ex it becomes drawn out quickly. This is where attorneys step in and charge dearly. If children and custody/child support are involved in any of this and both sides want the kids be warned.....no matter who your attorney is or what the circumstance you will bleed money, assets, and tears until it consumes your life. Some courts/attorneys work out better but there is no such thing as a good attorney in a custody case. What they dont tell you is this.....you pay them money thinking they work for you but really they work for the court system. They are taught to do whatever it takes to get a settlement out of EITHER person in a divorce/custody. Your own attorney will actively work against your best interests with the opposing attorney to get a settlement. Some will deny this happens buts its the truth. I recommend really contemplating if you stand the mental, physical, and financial strain of a years long battle in court. If you can stay married do it.....or at the least find a way to settle without attorneys. They do not help the situation typically.

Well I am sure all judges have seen tears when there is a divorce happening....So what? At least I cared... Like I said Norma Miner really did a number on me ......

Jimani is absolutely correct! Him having Verity is an advantage for her. I hired him to do my divorce after he got my retainer he did nothing. After 6 months of not returning my calls and no paperwork had been done I fired him! I hired Schaefer and my divorce was final in 30 days. I hear he mostly represents his party buddies and girlfriends.
absolutely right. verity is a joke. takes your money, doesn't return calls, sometimes doesnt appear in court. always smells of booze. never at his office.

Keep in mind that people getting a divorce are probably going through the worst time of their life. Most issues in a divorce, like marriage, are about compromise. Even if your divorce attorney does a great job, some of those compromises are going to leave the client bitter. Not getting what you wanted isn't evidence of a bad lawyer. You have to sign the agreement. However, not returning calls, not going to court, missing deadlines, those things are bad. Stick with a reputable attorney and listen to what they say. Gerry Reed or Michelle Schafer are good starting points.

Norma is a bull that let's loose in the court room..she will fight for what is right... she knows a loser when she sees one and helps you to show the judge what the other person is hiding... she is the best ..worth the money

If the case is filed and being heard at the Williamson County Court House... You may have an up-hill battle.

Howevr, if Green has to argue outside of "the big fix" any first year law student will do.

I used Mike Oshel from Harrisburg. He was awesome. He is very experienced and has a great demeanor. Charged much less than the others. Always called or emailed me within 24 hours. Was aggressive in my favor but not outlandish in his requests ( as to run up my bill). My ex and I worked together as much as we could to draft up our requests in the beginning, but it did gradually get ugly. Mike was great to help fight for a fair settlement. I would highly recommend him.

Verity is an adequate attorney, but he is a snake. He even tells you with his license plate, which says, "SHYSTER."

there is no such thing as a good divorce lawyer. They are all con artists who do nothing but make things worse. Especially if you are male as women get a free ride in the family court system.
