In the Words of our Clients…
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?
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.
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. He said that he had a good referral.
His approach; he’s very friendly, very honest, easygoing, has a kind demeanor, puts you at ease.He was very good with his discovery to get to the bottom of things because my husband wasn’t always very cooperative, nor was his attorney.He understands a lot of the psychological aspects of people and it plays a lot into divorces and the stresses it can cause on you.
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.
I just felt like I was stuck and I didn’t know what to do. I needed some legal advice, any advice, help. Encouragement really like, if this is what I wanted to do or not do. He really helped me because he wasn’t gung-ho about, “Yes, you need to get an attorney.” He was like, “Well, it seems like you want to work on it. Let’s wait.” And so, I really appreciate that.
Actually, he was the only one that I met with. I spoke with some over the phone, but it just felt comfortable. I’m a little bit more shy and timid to say things and I just felt really at ease and so I just went with it.
Good, quiet, gentle. He’s a completely different person from when we go to court, so that was nice. I wasn’t intimidated to talk to him. That’s what made it easy for me.
I was in the middle of a divorce and he was recommended to me by my uncle. I wasn’t the happiest with my current attorney. When I first hired him, my ex-husband had filed an ex parte hearing and had been given emergency custody of my son and there had been some false accusations against me by my ex-husband. My reason for hiring Rick was to regain custody of my son.
He’s very nice. He is calm even when you get upset. Going through divorce is emotional. He always remains calm and he never made me feel like my feelings or what I was hoping for was out of the question or wrong.
The main concerns I had is I knew it was going to be a tricky case, I knew it was going to be complicated and I knew that there was going to be hurdles that we were going to have to overcome. I interviewed a couple of attorneys and never got a comfortable feeling with them and when they interviewed with Rick, he made a comment of, “Let’s bring it on.” I told him that if I hired him that we were always going to have to be the aggressor on the offense that we never needed or I never wanted to be on the defense, and throughout the whole process that was the case.
My ex-wife is a little mentally unstable. I knew she was going to be complicated and fight every aspect of the case. She was not going to agree with any common-sense rational decisions. We pretty much had to force her to realize that decisions were being made for the betterment of the children and the outcome in the end was better for the children.
After spending countless hours meeting with attorney after attorney that seemed to be only interested in their retainer, not to mention all the books that I read that had no real answers, your genuine advice and the application of your techniques just saved my sanity. I only wish that I had bought this sooner so that I could spend less time fighting over fights that weren’t worth really fighting over.
I wanted to make sure everything went smoothly because I knew I wouldn’t be able to do it by myself, so I felt like I needed an attorney because my ex was very difficult and I knew I would need a lot of help working with him.
It was great. He made the process really smooth. He was very understanding, was not judgmental. He really just made me feel comfortable.
The difficulties were basically with my ex and he was able to help me mainly with him and also just getting what I needed out of that divorce case. He acknowledged me on a lot of stuff that I didn’t know about. He was able to really explain a lot and help me out with those things.
I came across Mr. Banks’ name and four other people’s names. I did my research and I prayed on it and his name popped into my head, so I called. Mr. Banks has been my attorney since 2013. Obviously, this is 2018. My divorce took six months and a day. However, there’s always things that come up after the fact. Mr. Banks represented me several times after the divorce had already been final and he was very gracious with his time and his attention to detail and everything. We were always patient, although the parties that we were dealing with weren’t always above board, but everything worked out because we always did things the right way.

“Filing for bankruptcy was never an easy decision, however Rick Banks was always courteous, honest, and extremely helpful during our dealings with him. I was not very keen on this process, but Rick explained everything clearly and was never rude or condescending. Honestly, my wife and I picked Rick from an ad in the yellow pages, but we were completely satisfied with him and of course his great staff. I would recommend Rick Banks to anyone needing his services with no reservation. I will most definitely use his services again if necessary.”

“With you and your staff’s help – as a single mom at the time, and of course with God’s help, my life continued to improve and I boosted up my credit score as quick as I could. It’s been in the 700′s for a very long time now. I even bought a house all by myself only two years after the bankruptcy, and it really blessed my kids and me. I am a success story. Thanks again for the “second chance” you and your staff gave me. Excellent service!”
