I had a great experience with the Law Offices of Beatrice L. Snider. Attorney Christine Sickler’s knowledge of case law is unparalleled. My divorce was very contentious and difficult for several reasons. First, my former wife had unrealistic expectations as to the value of our assets and made unreasonable demands. She hired an attorney that was not knowledgeable in family law and practices outside of San Diego. Given Ms. Sickler’s expertise in family law coupled with her knowledge of business valuation and tax issues, we were able to accomplish a settlement beyond my expectations. In addition, her paralegal Anita was always available to answer questions and kept me informed as to the status of my case which alleviated my stress during the divorce process.
I have found the Law Offices of Beatrice Snider to be the best regarded family law firm in Southern California. You should have seen the look on the face of both Mediators (prior to resorting to litigation) when I informed them of my consulting attorneys identity. When forced to litigate, Beatrice Snider did such a great job that the excess support I had previously agreed to in mediation, was reduced enough to cover my attorney fees and costs. I came to Ms. Snider’s office initially because my friend’s recommendation was so strong. He admitted that he had made a huge mistake by not hiring her in his divorce because her fees seemed too high at the time. In the end, he spent more money and vastly more time with others to achieve an inferior result in his own divorce case. I found that among her staff, Beatrice Snider strategies and appoints the most appropriate team for the specific case. For me that was Christine Sickler and Anita McCloud. Their expertise and diligence really paid off. In turn, I referred a friend to no avail because his ex-wife shrewdly consulted with Ms. Snider simply to conflict to her out of the case. Ultimately when the time came for my own son’s case, Ms. Snider had my strongest endorsement.
I don’t think there’s a way to describe the stress that comes with going through the divorce process, including the follow up court proceedings after the divorce is final. In my case, my attorney (Steve Murphy) and his paralegal (Laura Prandini) were always calm, professional and reassuring, and expeditiously helped me resolve my spousal support issue. Great team!
When the sky fell after more than 30 years of marriage, I knew I would need a family law firm that had the depth of experience and expertise to assist me in forming a new life for my five children and myself. In the midst of this emotional and financial chaos, I reached out to the Family Law Offices of Beatrice L. Snider to guide me through this confusing maze of unpredictable discoveries and extensive court hearings. I could not have predicted the discovery of hidden fraudulent loans, the foreclosure of our home, the difficulty in evaluation of our businesses and the unpaid federal tax lien issues. My attorney’s extensive legal knowledge and perseverance enabled my children and me to emerge from this turbulence with our sense of family still intact, and a clear plan for our future.
The only word that comes to mind to describe what my attorney and paralegal team worked so hard on is, BEAUTIFUL! You pulled ALL the pieces together, and there were many, and presented it so concisely and factually. Of course, the other side hit back with everything they’ve got, but my team didn’t let that take away from the supreme effort they put into my case then, and from the very beginning.
I want to let you know how much I think of my attorney and paralegal team. They are so intelligent, caring and skillful – I would want no one else on my side. You are very lucky to have them in your firm. I appreciate all they have done for me and I am very trusting and confident in them. I thank you for all you have done for me.
Dear Ms. Snider, I want to thank and compliment you and your firm in my recent divorce case. Having a seven-figure, privately-owned business complicates a divorce substantially, but the strategy your team developed in my case was intelligent and fair, and was executed beautifully. Throughout the entire process, I found the team helpful, knowledgeable, empathetic, thorough, and very efficient. When my ex’s firm was busy slinging mud and making false accusations against me, your team kept things calm, rational, non-inflammatory, and very businesslike. Your referrals to outside associates and professionals were spot-on. In the end, the asset split was fair – which I expected – and the support and children’s custody and visitation schedule are very appropriate and manageable for me. Best of all, the kids seem happy and well-adjusted. Your work helped save the business, the employees’ jobs, and we got all this done for over $100,000 LESS than my ex’s wife family firm charged her! I would not hesitate to recommend your firm to anyone seeking a professional, business-oriented firm to handle their complex divorce case. Thank you for all the hard work.
I have had the pleasure of dealing the Law Offices of Beatrice L. Snider for 9 years. My divorce was very complicated. Win Heiskala, along with her team and her highly efficient paralegal, Eileen Atkinson, have ferreted out the many, many burdensome conflicts that arose out of the divorce. Win Heiskala is extremely competent in every area of family law. She and Eileen keep things perfectly organized. Win always amazes me with her instant recall of facts and documents. Her reputation with family court and civil judges is stellar. I have recommended Win and her firm to several other clients.
I asked Ms. Snider’s firm to pick up my case in process when previous counsel could not bring the matter to any sort of conclusion. The ongoing process was very emotionally taxing and had my entire life held in suspension. I sought this team’s assistance to bring the case to a fair and timely conclusion. Beatrice and her staff of professionals listened to my preferred direction very closely, developed a workable strategy, untangled the existing situation quickly, and had the matter completed and through the court in less than 5 months. Great closers; No loose ends. Their fee estimates were spot on as was their likely settlement projection. The entire staff is wholly competent and very responsive – No voicemail – ever. In my case, closure meant beginning the healing process. I could not be more grateful nor recommend this firm more highly. I can breathe easy once again.
I would like to thank your firm for their excellent work on my case. They demonstrated knowledge, compassion, and toughness that resulted in a very positive outcome for me. Your firm has the intelligence, people skills, and experience to handle any complex case.
