I was looking for an attorney to deal with the dissolution of my marriage, and Mr. Banks was recommended to me by my business attorney. That’s really how I found Mr. Banks.

Mostly I want somebody that actually cared about what was going on. I hate to say it, but more bang for your buck kind of deal too as well. I mean, he’s a pretty good guy all around. I don’t look at him just as an attorney. I look at him as my friend kind of. Things were happening in the other home that I didn’t know how to approach and I needed legal counsel for that. If I had approached it my way, I could have maybe got in trouble or overstepped a boundary I didn’t need to overstep. I…

Mostly I want somebody that actually cared about what was going on. I hate to say it, but more bang for your buck kind of deal too as well. I mean, he’s a pretty good guy all around. I don’t look at him just as an attorney. I look at him as my friend kind of. Things were happening in the other home that I didn’t know how to approach and I needed legal counsel for that. If I had approached it my way, I could have maybe got in trouble or overstepped a boundary I didn’t need to overstep. I needed help with that. I got to looking online, I saw his book and the title of it caught me. So yeah, it was mostly the book. He’s a great guy to work with. He’s really down to earth and he asks the questions that you don’t even know you need to answer yet. Do you know what I mean?

Having to come to terms with, I needed to do this now because I put it off and put it off. I didn’t want to face the fact of, “Okay, I need to step up and fight for my daughter.” I didn’t know how or that I needed to really do that yet. Talking with Rick, he more or less made me see that I needed to pull off the Band-Aid and not to be nice about it. That it needed to be done because it was in the best case for the child.

That goes back to the first time I saw him for marital reasons. He was more about trying to fix the marriage than actually try to go through with a divorce and be my attorney for that. He was there trying to help me mend it first before that pushed on and ended up working out. Helping me to negotiate terms, child support amount, stuff like that, and visitation and what to push for, what not to push for yet. I didn’t know any of that. I’d say that would be a good reason to go to Rick.

I was very nervous, very emotional. Going through a divorce is not something I had done before and I didn’t really know what to expect. Primary reason. I had met with other attorneys. I just didn’t feel comfortable with them. When I met with Rick, I immediately felt comfortable, I felt like he was honest and you talk about pretty emotional things and pretty private things and I felt between him and his staff that I could talk to them.

I was very nervous, very emotional. Going through a divorce is not something I had done before and I didn’t really know what to expect. Primary reason. I had met with other attorneys. I just didn’t feel comfortable with them. When I met with Rick, I immediately felt comfortable, I felt like he was honest and you talk about pretty emotional things and pretty private things and I felt between him and his staff that I could talk to them.

I’ve heard really horrible stories about divorces taking so long and everything is drawn out. He did it in a very timely fashion that was comfortable for me and my ex. I would say the fact that I was able to trust him and feel so comfortable with him, he’s very honest, I felt like any private information that I had to give him was going to be kept between us and he was going to help me and guide me in the areas that I was unfamiliar with. Rick was able to work with my soon to be ex and his attorney very well so that when things arose, they were handled in a timely manner and we were able to get through the process quickly without very many hitches.

For me the biggest win would be us being able to work out custody of our children, and something that was fair for both of us, because that was very important for both of us to be able to come to an agreement when it came to our children. So, the biggest win for me would just be knowing that Rick was very fair to me and my soon to be ex when it came to terms of custody.

I feel that I got the best outcome as possible. My ex and I are on friendly terms due to the way that Rick handled everything, and it was very important to us in the beginning to make sure that we tried to stay as friendly as possible. Now we are able to co-parent very well. Our relationship is– We are able to call each other and actually talk to each other about issues and things that come up. I feel that we’re very good co-parents due to Rick’s guidance and just the way the whole thing was handled.

I would tell them that– which I do actually tell people, that he is honest. He is comfortable. That his staff and he are very professional and that I wouldn’t have chosen anybody else to have helped me through this time. Absolutely, I recommend his services all the time. Again, due to the reasons I just explained and their professionalism and ease of being able to ask questions and things that I was so unsure about and I didn’t want to feel– A lot of people make you feel dumb that you’re asking a question and they never made me feel dumb. I always felt like they were there to help me.

I was looking for an attorney because I needed to go through a stressful divorce. My main concern was my ex– Well, ex-husband now. He was in Texas, so I needed someone who would be able to help me get through the process and someone who was going to be compassionate through my situation because it definitely wasn’t an easy one.

I was looking for an attorney because I needed to go through a stressful divorce. My main concern was my ex– Well, ex-husband now. He was in Texas, so I needed someone who would be able to help me get through the process and someone who was going to be compassionate through my situation because it definitely wasn’t an easy one.

I did a lot of research on different attorneys and then I found Rick through the internet and I noticed that he had written a book on divorce. He seemed pretty knowledgeable and just seemed like he was the right person for my situation.

It was really pleasant. It was very helpful. I felt that anytime I needed anything, they were there for me. Especially, since I was emotional sometimes and it was stressful, but I didn’t feel like they got irritated with me or anything. They were very compassionate and understanding.

Mainly my ex-husband, [laughs] he was very difficult and there is a time he came into the office and was just bad mouthing me and they stood their ground and stuck up for me and ended up having to escort him out of the office because he was talking so negatively about me. He also helped me with one of the jobs that I had with one of my employers was not very nice and just putting me through a lot of stress, just trying to get my divorce stuff done. Rick ended up writing a letter proving that I have all these things going on. That was helpful too.

Mainly, just being there, answering the phone when I needed to talk to someone to figure out what was going on with my case, but mainly, helping with my ex-husband and the employer too that was giving me a hard time.

I would definitely say that they’re number one in the Central Valley, honestly, because I have dealt with quite a few attorneys and my experience with them was way better than all the other ones and they’re definitely there to help their clients.
