Highly Recommend Philomena!

When I needed legal help the most, I contacted Best Law Firm. I was a mess and had absolutely zero idea of how what needed to be done worked. My initial free consultation with Philomena & Ankita was such a relief! I know that sounds strange, why not “wonderful” or “great”? Well, it WAS actually both wonderful and great, but with how clear and helpful the entire proceedings (truncated, of course) would be if I hired Best Law Firm was explained, I left that meeting with actual hope for my future. Philomena was working with me for a while, sending emails and keeping me up to date with things. Honestly, between both women, I was always confident about what was going on and what was going to happen next. And sure, there were things I was nervous about, such as the actual court date and whether or not everything proposed would be accepted, but I was never nervous about my lawyers. Despite my difficulty to comprehend even simple things (either written or spoken, I do have a disability), I always had anything I was having difficulty with reframed until I could understand, and I never once felt embarrassed because I was treated with the upmost respect and understanding. Let’s face it, custody issues are messy and emotional, but in the end, I got everything my children need and I couldn’t be happier. I would highly recommend Philomena @ Best Law Firm; she really helped save my kids (emotionally & physically), truly.

Bryce is a true professional, and an absolute pleasure to work with. My custody battle was an experience that can best be described as every parent’s worst nightmare. Bryce, co-counsel David, and their entire staff were fantastic. Bryce was empathetic, and took time to explain my options so we could make the best choice. I really appreciate how dedicated Bryce was to my case, knowing every detail inside and out. Bryce spent many hours making sure we got every detail right as we prepared for our final trial. Bryce’s hard work and dedication paid off. In comparison, we went into our final trial with a 53 page pretrial statement, over 1000 pages of evidence, and supporting testimony and documentation from the Court Appointed Advisor charged with investigating our case. The opposing counsel prepared a 7 page pretrial statement, barely over 100 pages of evidence, with the CAA recommending strong sanctions for mother’s negligent actions. There are many different attorneys to choose from, but when your family’s future is on the line having the peace of mind of an attorney like Bryce in your corner is a blessing. I would highly recommend Bryce Johnson for any family court issue you’re faced with.

In my experience, Best Law Firm is the clear first choice for those seeking legal help with family law issues in the greater Scottsdale area. Their team of attorneys and staff are highly experienced, and they get results. If your divorce has a lot at stake, you want the best. If you want an attorney who is aggressive and who does not sleep until the work is done, but who can walk you through complex legal issues so that you stay on the same page- this is your firm. In particular, Mr. Hendricks and Mr. Vincent are fantastic. Going forward, I’ll trust this firm without reservation.

Mena was a part of the legal team from Best Law that worked on my case. I found Mena to be very thorough and she had a great eye for the details within the documents that were drafted and the many communications that were processed between parties during the proceedings.
