International Divorce Lawyer Reviews
My divorce and ensuing custody battle was one of the most painful and emotionally draining experiences I have ever faced. From the beginning, Gary instilled a feeling of confidence in me and was there for me every step of the way. Gary and his staff were always available for questions and guidance. Gary is not only an outstanding, experienced attorney but one that I was able to forge a trusted relationship with. If you are looking for an accomplished, personable, trustworthy attorney to represent and guide you through a very difficult process Gary is absolutely the right attorney for you! I am happy to state my case ended up working out with the best results possible. I am very satisfied with the service I received as well as the final results!
The end result of my divorce was better than expected ... the process was at times frustrating due to unclear communications and delays by the Court, the parties involved, and scheduling. Gary was knowledgeable, professional and responsive. His staff also provided on-going assistance and continuity when Gary was unavailable. There were some errors not corrected in court documents so I would encourage careful examination of drafts but that responsibility goes two ways. Financial terms were fair and flexible as the case neared its conclusion.
I would recommend others to consult with Gary and utilize his services for divorce proceedings. While he may project a timeline for your case, circumstances will undoubtedly affect the real timeframe... in a stressful scenario such as divorce, understanding what your counsel can and cannot control is critical to your sanity and well-being. Ask your attorney lots of questions regarding possible roadblocks and problems that can occur during the process. Gary has great experience but as an expert needs to interpret the law and possible results in some simpler and understandable terms for the novice of a divorce proceeding.
I retained Mr. Gottfried after my dissolution turned nasty, from a suggestion from a friend. It didn't take very long to figure out my money was well spent. I would definitely recommend him and his team to anyone!
I endorse this lawyer. Gary is a first-rate lawyer who is well-respected by his peers, the courts and everyone in general. I would not hesitate to recommend Gary to anyone with a family law issue.
