    For 1 1/2 year Jim Ratzer and firm helped us through numerous obstacles in Family Court, and my husband ultimately won primary custody of his Son. We hired Jim Ratzer after firing our first two ineffectual attorneys. Jim Ratzer and Morgan Dobis were straight-talking, no BS, and a conviction to fight for what was right. We battled for 18 months and attacked from every angle. Jim Ratzer, and attorney Morgan Dobis were stars. In the end my husband had primary custody and protection for the future. Read less

    I would highly recommend Jim. He got the job done and didn't over charge. He actually cares about his clients, not like most divorce lawyers who are in it for the money and then leave you high and dry.
