Customer Reviews

  • My ex decided he wanted to move to a different state and take our kids with him, even though we had joint custody. I was terrified I was going to lose my kids! A friend of mine went to Irons & Irons for her divorce so I went to them for help. My attorney was incredible - he was reassuring, patient, and anytime I had a question, I could call and he'd be right there to answer. In court, he fought for me to keep my kids from leaving the state, and we got a child custody modification that gave me primary custody and my ex got visitation where he had to come back to the state to see them. I was thrilled with the outcome!
