About This Firm

About This Firm
Stearns-Montgomery & Proctor Family Law Attorneys

Few events in life are as painful or stressful as a divorce, especially when there is a dispute over child custody or spousal support. Even the best situation may offer only partial solutions in terms of the best interests of children and parents. When confronted with the issues in a divorce, it is important to have a lawyer on your side who cares.

Aggressively Pursuing Client Goals

Many family law attorneys promote themselves as aggressive trial lawyers willing to fight until the bitter end. This approach can be strategically and fiscally irresponsible, as the vast majority of divorce and family law issues are resolved without a trial. You owe it to yourself to preserve your assets when possible, but be ready to fight when necessary. Our family law attorneys and divorce lawyers work closely with you to understand your unique needs, review your rights and options, consider creative alternatives, and prepare a sound legal strategy. Then we will fight aggressively to protect your interests and pursue your goals. Contact us to set up a consultation with a caring family law attorney.

I worked with Jennifer Brown at this Law Firm. She is warm, puts you at ease, and works hard for you. I was involved in a long, drawn out divorce and sought Jennifer's help almost two years in the process. I fully credit her with helping me finalize things, keep my children safe, and ultimately make sure the judges were made aware of the antics of my ex-husband.
Her paralegal, Lynn Congdon, works hard as well. Together she and Jennifer are a great team!

I hired the firm to help me file for a divorce. The communication was terrible, I had to call/text/email numerous times to get their attention. Response time - from several days to a week after asking a question - repeatedly. However, the invoices they sent me were always on time, they could find time for this! I definitely don't think I got good deal of service for the money I paid. I give them rating of "4" for quality because we won the case, but otherwise it was a frustrating experience.

This practice is not concerned about their clients, only their bottom dollar

I just want to say Thank you to Jennifer Johnson for her quick responses and professional ability to handle my situation. She was very thorough while working on my case in a very short time. I would recommend her to everyone. Thank you Jennifer!

We feel so blessed to have been represented by Jennifer. She made an otherwise overwhelming situation tolerable. Knowing that we have not only incredibly competent representation, but someone who cared about us and our case, made all the difference in the world. Being able to assure the kids that they would be here, with us, being cared for, was the best gift we could have received! Thank you seems such a cliche thing to say, when you have without a doubt changed our lives.

I cannot thank Ryan enough for his help in getting me through the worse time of my life, my divorce. The divorce process lasted some 20 months. During the first few months, I went through two other attorneys before finding Ryan. With his guidance we were able to strategically focus our resources of time & money where it would be most beneficial. My wife out spent me 3 to 1 and she lost. Her attorneys were predatory but Ryan always had my best interests in mind.

I had never dealt with a legal matter until I had to seek representation for Child Custody. My attorney, Ms. Farmer was a class act in the court room. She was intimately acquainted with my case, she prepared me with court room etiquette, and she collaborated with me so that we were prepared for anything. She is organized, informed and maintains her composure when faced with an unscrupulous opposing counsel.
I would highly recommend Ms. Farmer as a family attorney.

Took much longer than expected. Not much sense of urgency.
