TESTIMONIALS

The attorneys atBoyd Law did a great job for me in my Orange County divorce. From the initial consultation on they really set themselves apart. I was into my divorce for over a year and for over $20k when I decided it might be time to seek different representation. There is no shortage of divorce attorneys in Orange County, but finding the best fit for your particular situation can be a challenge. My particular situation involved a prenuptial agreement. My prior attorney had done many things without notifying me and seemed to have almost set my case backwards. The divorce attorneys atBoyd Law listened to what was important to me and went about accomplishing that as efficiently as possible. Their billing was always fair and I never had to wait even an hour for a returned call or email. I worked with Tom Georgianna on my case and would highly recommend him. He got up to speed on my case in lightening time, accomplished more than my two prior attorneys combined, and was great in front of the judge. It is hard to find aggressive representation who can also mediate with the other side so that the divorce eventually does come to an end. I should mention that I had previously gone through two other attorneys before finding Tom atBoyd Law. I retained the first attorney because he seemed nice and his hourly rate was cheap. I got just what I paid for and got nothing accomplished in my favor. Then I went to the other extreme and went to an overly expensive attorney who was too aggressive and never wanted to settle, never returned calls, and got upset when my goals differed from hers. Needless to say, it is so important that you start your divorce off with quality representation. Switching attorneys is an expensive nightmare. If you are looking for a great divorce attorney, I highly recommend you check outBoyd Law in Irvine. My divorce was a complicated one, and I am more than pleased with the outcome Tom Georgianna achieved for me.
