"Nick Mourtos and his staff provided excellent customer service throughout my case. They truly do care about doing their best for their clients. Nick is knowledgeable, honest and sincere. Upon leaving his office, after our initial consultation, I knew I was in good hands, and that this attorney was not just after my money. He looked out for me, while helping me keep my costs down. Thank you, Nick, Roxann, and Sharon!"

"Within the last year I have retained the services of Weinberger Divorce & Family Law Group on two occasions. The emotional, physical and financial strain of having to fight for your rights on issues of divorce and custody are immense. My lawyer, Marquis Jones provided me with excellent service as a person first, then a client. He believed in me and he was thorough in his preparation to represent me before the court. His expertise and calm demeanor grounded me and settled my anxiety, fears and frustrations. He equipped me from all angles with what I may expect during my experience. He prepared for everything in expectation of having to deal with anything that came our way. I am prayerfully thankful and happy to say that both cases he fought for me were successful. Court battles are life changing. You have to be vulnerable enough to put part of your life in the hands of a trusted attorney who can fight for you in ways that you can't on your own. I highly recommend Marquis Jones to be an attorney you can trust to fight for you."

"My EAP program recommended this lawfirm. I went to the free consultation and met with Nick Mourtos. He was personable, professional and really listened to my case. He explained in layman's terms possible outcomes and was honest in his opinion on the case. I felt so at ease in this consultation and the client experience was top notch. I explained the route I wanted to take and he was able to help me achieve what I wanted. Roxann his paralegal was professional and she answered my questions with ease. I would recommend this firm to anyone."

"If what I got was the best representation the firm could offer they need to recheck! Dealing with ex who stopped paying alimony for months..told it was pretty cut and dry..even had proof ex was lying about his condition and they knew up front I had taken a loan from work and was desperately struggling because I had tried to work it out with ex and was stuck in my lease..I was told right up front 'NO..he can't do that..and judges hate when people take matters into own hands'..I was NEVER once told there was no enforcement other than wage attachment (he is currently appealing his declined SSDI)..during the process I had to continually ask to give deadlines because my funds were so limited..this should NOT have taken months to resolve..the night before court my lawyer said he u2018had a few ways to enforce' the tentative that was in my favor..felt so relieved because I told him loan was used up..he tells me the morning of court there is no other way..that would have been nice to know BEFORE..like when I first walked in!! He could have been honest and said YES..he can get away with this ..we can go to court but know that legally no guarantee of any enforcement if you win..That would helped in my decision..During my time with Weinberger I was NOT told my lawyer was out..TWICE!! First time with family issue that put everything on hold but I was not told..found out only because I wasn't hearing of any progress for 2 weeks and called because I was getting anxious not hearing from him..finally after weeks he was back..then again after a few more weeks and more silence found out he was out again with concussion but they were going to 'turn me over' to another attorney since no idea when he would be back..they NEVER stated she was 'more expensive' and are now billing me the additional for even though none of this was my doing or my fault...after meeting with new lawyer the original lawyer came to court..and I found out that morning he just started back after out 4 weeks and was not allowed to be on phone,computer, etc due to severity ..When we got into court ( him telling me my tentative was totally in my favor and rarely gets changed) he was completely and totally scattered in his thoughts (even my brother stated as such and that we were totally 'outgunned') I DO BELIEVE HIS CONCUSSION AFFECTED MY REPRESENTATION.. my financial future was at stake..and he then stated to the judge that I would have been better off financially if my ex had DIED. (And I had already told him ex was using every thing he could to make me look bad to my kids and even changed paperwork to make sure it was not inflammatory) He later sent me email about how he and the judge joked about that comment because even the judge couldn't believe he said that. That it took the 'air right out of the room' ..now my kids are distant with me and I do believe it's because of that statement getting back to them..WHO says that out loud in a courtroom? The judge then changed everything in the tentative and my ex is already back partially in contempt after my so called 'win'...and now after me giving them everything I had financially thinking my tentative would give me at least some financial relief ..paying another 1200 refresher on top of 2500 retainer right before court (now have to go to court by myself to file contempt AGAIN)..they sent me a huge bill of 2400 MORE (with more expensive lawyer fee added) and the interest they are charging me?? is more than the payment I can afford to give them each month! Least I am trying to pay something when I have nothing to show but a worthless piece of paper..Yet lawyer says we WON?? Only thing I won? Was a huge bill with ridiculous interest and estranged kids! As I said..if THAT is their best? I'm so much worse off than when I walked in that day! They called me a 'favorite' client..were they nice enough people? Sure..so am I..but I wasn't paying for niceness to me..I was paying for someone STRONG to go up an abusive, controlling ex who took the law into his own hands! And HONESTY about whether he could do that! I stupidly trusted them!"

Asset Protection By Design
most of the time people believe that their estate is all “set-up,” even though most of the time it is not. It’s just the process of having gone to an attorney for a plan, like the couple above. Much of the failure of estate planning is the misunderstanding of consequences. Often, a legal hearing is required to take control over family member’s financial and medical decisions when planning is no longer possible. Probate is the court procedure that interprets the Last Will and Testament or follows the rules of asset transfers when the documents aren’t available. Probate could easily be avoided through proper estate planning. The following documents are covered under the definition of basic estate planning. 1. Power of Attorney; this is the document that provides authority to enable others to make financial decisions for the benefit of the one who set-up the Power of Attorney. 2. Health Care Surrogate; This is the document that provides authority to a trusted party to make health care decisions for the benefit of the grantor if and when unable to make such decisions. 3. Living Will; This is the document that provides authority to enable a trusted party to make end-of-life decisions. 4. Revocable (Living) Trust; this is a document that control’s how assets are to be handled during one’s lifetime and after death. The trust-maker has the ability to make changes during one’s life. 5. Last Will and Testament. This is the document that handles assets at death and assets that are not properly funded by the trust through the court process called probate.
