Carolyn Connell is the best in Paris, if she is still practicing family law. Not cheap, but most times you get what you pay for.

they all do the same thing thats take your money, if you want to see who will get custody at the least expence ask for a custody evaluation cost between 3000-6000 spit between the two parents.

Joe Fooks is the best at keeping cost down, take a look at the docket and see whos name is on the list the most-I have used Joe and my bill was $2000 plus evaluation $1700. My ex got one of those high dollars att.$14000 plus evaluation $1700. I was the parent the evaluation recommended custody to- end of fight the courts 9 out 10 time go along with it.-good luck use joe or get somebody else and spend everything you got-tell Joe you want the evaluation right off the bat and you would see who the court would give custody without all the att fees.

Crystal Osborne in Lexington. She is a beast and will take out any attorney in Paris. She first play. She will take fooks out with an artillery. Or roger micheal, he's better than anyone here in Paris and will tell it to you straight up.

No idea about these people in Lexington, but they only asked for Paris or Carlisle based names. LOL. These are the only two names I know here in Paris, due to personal and family involvement with them. And before anyone gets bent, I am not trying to get anything started with ya, just saying.

No idea here. But, from my experience, any office you go to will give you free advice during the first meeting, at least they have for me. And if you can catch him in his office, I have visited Brian Privett more than once for quick answers/ advice. He has always been very nice and very helpful, without having his hand in my pocket first. He is very honest, and down to earth. Another person you might ask about those types of things would be Dorothy Jo Mastin, in the bottom floor of the court house.

He maybe good for some types of other cases, I started with him, changed in the middle of our case, we won by changing lawyers. Good luck.

DO NOT GO WITH HARRY BUDDEN JR. HE WILL DEFINITLY TAKE YOUR MONEY AND DOES NOT REPRESENT YOU VERY WELL. I HIRED HIM IN THE BEGINNING OF MY DIVORCE, AND THE FIRST 3 VISITS TO THE COURT ROOM, HE HAD JEREMY MATTOX STAND IN FOR HIM 2 OF THOSE VISITS. HE IS DEFINITLY ONE OF THOSE MONEY EATING LAWYERS.

Yes, she is the county attorney. I was merely suggesting using her to find out answers and such. Sorry, I failed to make that clear.

I would definately avoid Roger Michael and Dorothy Jo Mastin. Neither has any idea what is going on...... I would trust Brian Privett. He is a good guy that the judges respect. He won't just take your money!

its not all about the lawyer, social services report, school reports, doctor reports, the lifestyle HISTORY of the one custody is removed from, home enviroment, getting custody with a record of drugs even getting rehab is very hard nowdays, comp care is a good advocate for childern as well
