Brandi Petterson acted swiftly and effectively within very tight timescales saving my home and my retirement by getting an inappropriate default judgement set aside. Subsequently, she provided an extremely professional service guiding me, an Englishman living in England, through the process of appealing the divorce settlement. Her support throughout was of tremendous benefit to me, especially during the two highly stressful court appearances where I spent many hours in the witness box. The successful outcome of the appeal was completely due to her diligence and the guidance she gave me.
I feel very lucky finding Brandi and retaining her to represent me during a very difficult period of my life. My divorce case was significantly complicated by terrible, false accusations with potential criminal implications. My whole career and impeccable reputation depended on the outcome of this legal struggle.
Not only did Brandi provide extremely qualified and effective professional services, bringing this challenging case to a successful conclusion. Truly amazing was the atmosphere of comfort and confidence she managed to create while tackling the most difficult, critical and sensitive issues I had to face. At all times, I knew that I could trust her expert opinion. She demonstrated that rare, perfect balance of staying very personal, working the issues passionately as if her own fate depended on the outcome and yet performing analysis and making decisions with cool, truly analytical, meticulously detail-oriented approach.
And another, not an insignificant consideration. Brandi is very sensitive to the impact of the cost her legal services have on her client’s finances. Her personal integrity is uncompromising and truly refreshing.
Again, I was just very lucky randomly finding Brandi‘s profile on her company’s website and putting my trust in several positive reviews I managed to “google out” and in the opinion I formed after an initial consultation with her. I hope this feedback helps other people make such important decision as selecting an attorney with more confidence and certainty.
Having Brandi as my lawyer through my divorce was a God send. She listened, trusted in what I was saying, and was the perfect advocate for me to feel heard in court. We were up against a real piece of work, a lawyer who liked to play dirty and Brandi never backed down. She helped me to stand my ground and not back down from what I knew was right. Brandi pushed forward when I wanted her to, and backed off when I needed time to process what was happening. Divorces are rarely quick and easy, you want it to just hurry up and be done with. Brandi was able to do a great job in managing those feelings of mine and get me to see the value in a strategy and timing and I’m grateful for that. Most importantly with my case, Brandi had my safety and my son’s safety as top priority. Brandi is fair, firm, confident, and a wonderful advocate.
I started working with Brandi in 2010 when I filed for divorce. We had a very long and tedious hearing and she was my rock! My ex-husband was not the kindest or easiest person to settle with but Brandi made sure I walked away with what I needed to raise my four kids. Unfortunately my ex-husband failed to follow through with his obligations and caused us to return to court several more times through out the next few years, each time Brandi was always a step ahead and knew just how to handle the situation. At one point we had to fight for an emergency hearing to get my children back after they were removed from the home, Brandi made sure that all the right actions were taken and they were home safe in less than 24 hours. We recently had to return to court in 2016-17 and again Brandi came through and we were able to settle in the best interest of my children and I. I have never felt as though I was on the back burner or in the dark about any part of any of my cases, I have always had a say I what I wanted or needed. The work that Brandi has done is priceless to me.
As my divorce attorney for over a year, Brandi Petterson has been a reliable, honest, positive and diligent lawyer and her work on my case has surpassed my expectations. Brandi was always available when I needed translation of the legalese used on the paperwork as well as when I needed a sanity check. I always felt as though I was informed throughout the entire process. She was always professional when dealing with the opposing counsel. I owe a debt of gratitude to Brandi for all of her patience during this difficult task and her enthusiasm to make this fair and painless . Thank you Brandi for all of your hard work.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your dedication, preserverance and determination to find a resolution to my legal issues. It has
been a long and difficult few years, yet you and your office have made these situations less intolerable and I appreciate all your efforts on my behalf.
It is no exaggeration to say I don’t know where to start. If I listed everything about Brandi that exceeded my expectations as an attorney, this would be a 500+ page novel. This review will seem like a lot of exaggeration, but every word is perfectly true. Yes, she really is that good! I walked into Brandi’s office wanting 50/50 across the board. My child was the victim of abuse by her custodial parent, and she needed my help and I needed Brandi’s help. Within 10 minutes of sitting down with her during my consultation, I could see that Brandi was not only brilliant, but she was emotionally invested in my child and my case. As a legal professional, and as a mom, it was clear that she put her heart into this! I never once felt like a number. In fact, despite her being a partner in a large and successful firm, I usually felt like I was her only client. While I know she had several other clients that she was helping, her level of service made me feel like I was her most important client. She never failed to communicate clearly with me. I don’t mean that she just emailed and called as necessary, which she did. I mean she also always managed my expectations and always told me the truth. Sometimes I did not want to hear the truth, but I respected and appreciated it. That being said, her communication went well above and beyond. Early in my case, I had a critical emergency at 730pm on a Saturday night. I called her firm and left a message on the machine, but I felt I needed to do more so I also emailed Brandi. To my astonishment, she replied 5 minutes later and told me exactly what I needed to do. Her advice that Saturday night changed the entire course of my case – and my child’s life. I never imagined that an attorney of her caliber would take time out of her precious old-time to look at her emails. Well, she did, and her advice was spot on!!! I understand that every case is different and the circumstances are always different, so your outcome may be different. What will not be different is that you would be hard pressed to find more than a few lawyers in this state as good as Brandi. While this next part may not be exactly appropriate, it is certainly true and it’s how I felt then and how I feel today… I asked a good friend and legal professional what Brandi is like in Court? He said that “She lives in Court and dominates the other lawyer.” This was entirely true. She owned the opposing lawyer inside and outside the courtroom, to the point that I clearly saw his frustration in Court. When he quit representing my ex and she got a new lawyer – Brandi owned him too. Please don’t misunderstand, she was always professional. She was just always more prepared, more confident more assertive, more skilled, more ethical, and always the better lawyer.
Brandi represented me in a complicated, unusual divorce and subsequent lawsuit. Long story short, we went to trial 4 times in 4 different courts. The entire case took 7 years and countless turns and twists. Brandi was ahead of the opposing sides’ moves every time. She was thorough and her knowledge of the law was astounding. She consistently gave sound advice which was helpful during a difficult time. I would highly recommend her for your family law case. I owe everything to her.
I have worked with various attorneys in my business and personal matters. I was faced with a battle that involved my children, livelihood, and future. And frankly, it was all on the line. I placed all of my trust in Brandi to handle these matters. She put up an amazing fight and won! In fact, the results were better than what I would have ever expected. She exceeded my expectations from day 1.
I looked around for lawyers for awhile and even interviewed several who offered consultations. Brandi didn’t charge me to meet with her and I knew from the minute I walked in I wanted to hire the her and the firm. Brandi and her staff went right to work and fought so hard for me I couldn’t ask for more. They always kept MY interests front and center and made sure I knew what was going on in my case all the time. She’d even sent me quick emails letting me know updates without me asking. She was amazing in the courtroom too – the judge really seemed to like her. Thank you Brandi!
As a father of a young child, when my ex-wife filed for divorce and later wanted to move out of state with my son, I knew I had a uphill battle on my hands and I needed help. I sought a law firm that would fight for my rights as a father. As a man going through a custody battle, I knew realistically, the courts were not on my side. Brandi poured her heart and legal and courtroom talents into our case. In court, Brandi Petterson is a heavyweight prize fighter who quick thinking and one-two verbal judo allowed the truth to come out and ultimately, the custody battle was resolved in my favor. I became the primary residential parent of my young son.
When my need for an attorney first came up, I reached out to trusted friends for recommendations and this is where I first learned about Brandi. I was limited from a financial perspective, but a face-to-face meeting made it clear that she would be a tremendous help. The 4 years I worked with her since then have confirmed that my decision to work with her was the best thing I could have done. The knowledge and experience she brought to the table has given us a visible advantage at every turn. Brandi showed a key strength in being able to identify and recommend options that could be agreeable to both sides. In many cases, this helped to resolve problems without even having to fight for it. Brandi has a comforting bedside manner, an eye on reality, and the ability to treat clients like human beings. It was a tough war to fight but I’m sure glad I had her on my side.
