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.
It was really pleasant. It was very helpful. I felt that anytime I needed anything, they were there for me. Especially, since I was emotional sometimes and it was stressful, but I didn’t feel like they got irritated with me or anything. They were very compassionate and understanding.
Mainly my ex-husband, [laughs] he was very difficult and there is a time he came into the office and was just bad mouthing me and they stood their ground and stuck up for me and ended up having to escort him out of the office because he was talking so negatively about me. He also helped me with one of the jobs that I had with one of my employers was not very nice and just putting me through a lot of stress, just trying to get my divorce stuff done. Rick ended up writing a letter proving that I have all these things going on. That was helpful too.
Mainly, just being there, answering the phone when I needed to talk to someone to figure out what was going on with my case, but mainly, helping with my ex-husband and the employer too that was giving me a hard time.
I would definitely say that they’re number one in the Central Valley, honestly, because I have dealt with quite a few attorneys and my experience with them was way better than all the other ones and they’re definitely there to help their clients.
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.
It was great working with Rick. He listened, he understood and he was patient and like I said, gracious with his time. He didn’t rush you. He wasn’t like, “Okay, we got to get through this. We need this done. We need that done.” He took his time and everything worked.
We did a lot of mediation. A lot of things was done via stipulation, which helped greatly but it was just dealing with my ex’s attorney’s office and their paralegal who weren’t, I would say, very scrupulous in their dealings and not very nice people.
I would to say, if you want someone who’s fair, who’s impartial, who’s going to listen, who won’t judge you on whatever you’re dealing with, then this is the person that you want to represent you. He’s professional, he’s ethical and that’s the type of person that you want to represent you in court.You want an attorney that is going to hear you because sometimes people listen but they don’t hear. Who’s going to hear your voice and allow you to have a voice in.
You want to deal with Mr. Banks because like I said, you want to deal with someone who’s nonjudgmental regardless of what the details of your divorce lies. As you know, we dealt with a lot after the fact. Dealing with my case, that pretty much became a public spectacle after the fact. So, you want someone who’s going to be mindful, bad things can get out of hand, someone who’s going to have enough integrity not to speak out of place and someone who’s going to ask your permission if they want to speak about your case, which is what he did in my situation because of the publicness of some things that happened after the fact.
For someone who’s contemplating getting a divorce, if this is really what you want to do, you need to get a great attorney. Also, it’s not just the attorney, is the people that work behind the scenes, the paralegals, the office managers, the accountants. You want to deal with people who are looking out for your best interest, but at the same time are fair. Sometimes even in a divorce, your attorney has to tell you something that you need to hear and maybe not necessarily want to hear. You want to have that type of relationship with your attorney and the people in their office. That way when you walk in, everybody feels like it’s the family.
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 key to success in any case is to speak with a family attorney as early as possible. That way, you can learn about your legal rights, discuss your options, and find out what strategy is best suited for your individual situation.
