“My story is probably fairly similar to a lot of individuals that have gone through divorces. There was nothing extreme, but there were things that became difficult at times. Being that this was a divorce of a marriage of 12 years, there were emotions and feeling very much wrapped up in the conversations had by my ex and I. There are a few things I would like to say about Brian Tackett and how he acted as my lawyer during this time.
1) Top notch professionalism: Brian at all times during the year-long divorce was doing what a lawyer should do, and more, for his client. He gave me solid advice and helped guide me, not just legally, but emotionally during the situation. He made sure that I kept a cool head in times where the heat was turned up by my ex, and he recommended several ways to reach agreements that would ultimately get me where I needed to be during the divorce decree. Basically, Brian did exactly what I hired him to do, represent me, and he did without fail in a very earnest and professional way.
2) Great job: Brian not only was professional, but he was plain good at what he did. I’ve never needed a lawyer before, so I didn’t know what to expect during this process, but I’m sure I lucked out finding Brian. Brian took care of pretty much everything. He knows most of the lawyers in the area, so when he heard my wife’s lawyer’s name, he knew her, and acted accordingly for my benefit within the parameters of their relationship. This was a tool that he was able to use, among others, during the process. He knew what to write up, where to write it, how to word it, and prepped me for all possible rebuttals that may come once my side of the decree had been submitted. This was extremely helpful. Furthermore, he was able to get most everything that I needed or wanted. He was always able to change anything I needed changed and readily adapted to my thoughts and feelings about particular areas of the divorce proceedings. Also, I have emailed and spoken with Brian several times after the divorce was over, asking him various questions, and he has always promptly responded and helped, all without any expectation of payment for his services or advice. He is freaking smart and great at his job!
3) Friendly: Brian is a very likable guy. He doesn’t make you feel like you are being interviewed for a job when speaking with you. He’s laid back, calm, polite, and he laughs and smiles a lot, which can be very disarming (a very needed at times) when my stress level was at a level 10. Having him representing himself as someone that actually cares about what I’m going through just made the process much more bearable. When someone needs a lawyer, finding someone that is not just well versed at their job, but also cares about their job and clients, well, it’s an area of being a lawyer that I’m not quite sure a lot of lawyers can honestly say they are able to work within. Brian nails it.
4) Cost: I can’t necessarily speak to knowing what is a good price for a lawyer, but what I can say is that I walked away after everything was said and done feeling like I got one hell of a deal on Brian’s services. Not only that, but Brian knew my financial situation and worked with me as much as necessary in order to make it easier for me. The great thing was that cutting my bill didn’t cut his services, and that is something I couldn’t be more grateful for.
In closing, I will say this. There are numerous options for lawyers for pretty much anything that you are going through. My experience was with divorce, and my lawyer was Brian Tackett. I couldn’t have chosen a better lawyer to represent me and if you are looking for someone to be on your side, give some consideration to Brian. I guarantee you that you will not be sorry for that choice, and with as many lawyers out there saying how great they are, but you can’t really know for sure, choosing Brian will be a peace of mind that is worth more than you probably know right now as you read this.
Thank you Brian!”
