What Our Clients Say About Our Services
“Neil Holmes at Divorce For Men Only in Walnut Creek was a good choice for me during the difficult time of my divorce. Mine was a so-called “high conflict” divorce and also involved two young, precious children. Neil somehow was able to keep me relatively not nervous during the year-long process. This was a brand new experience for me, and Mr. Holmes managed to steer things somewhere between emotional understanding and financial responsibility. He also kept me well-informed regarding how and why I was being charged for individual items all along the way. This increased trust. I would recommend Neil Holmes for anyone during this difficult time.”
“Neil presented a strong case to the judge and avoided messy and pointless litigation by keeping things factual and simple. A strong attorney is absolutely necessary going through this type of thing, and I know that Neil is the best fit for me. I had another attorney who did not handle my case well. That person got me into a very bad situation. Choosing Neil to represent you is a good move.“
“Mine was a very combative divorce which, quite frankly, was the most difficult time in my life.
Neil and his paralegal Stella carried me through this most difficult time as though I was family. Both of them were always caring and supportive. From the start, I knew I was in good hands.
They were always very quick to respond whenever I had questions or concerns and never kept me waiting, wondering, and worrying over the unknowns.
I found Neil to be a straight-up guy who always gave me the truth, whether it was or wasn’t what I wanted to hear. He became a friend to me, I feel. I always felt very certain that he cared and that he had my best interests in mind.
At the end of it all, I received the best outcome I possibly could, and I’m a happy person on the other side of the whole ordeal.“
