Subject: Kudos to you and your staff!

Hi Michael,

My wife and I have been married 42 years in September and it is the greatest thing that ever happened to me. I'm so glad that you found love and remarried and I'm glad you shared your experience with us. At first I couldn't understand why Marilyn and her staff liked this field of law so much. It seemed stressful to me but they are constantly rewarded by the good that they do. Your letter dear friend has made their day! Thanks for permission to publish your story on this webpage.

Hello Ray and thank you for writing back.

By all means, please do publish the email to your site. A little background information: My case was fought and eventually won in California, where the rules of the game are probably different. I went what I think is called “in pro per” which I think means “by myself”. Anyway, I’ve since remarried to a wonderful woman who, unlike my last wife, I trust will remain faithful to me. I adopted her two girls and now have three, sometimes four kids. It’s the typical “his, hers, ours” scenario only now they’re all mine/ours due to the adoption. I share custody of the daughter from my first marriage.

I'll point my friends and relatives currently being intimidated by their ex-wives and ex-girlfriends to your site. But even here in Nevada, I tell my friends and relatives not to cower at their threats. Still they do. I hope they’ll be encouraged to take a stand once visiting your site. Speaking of site, Ray, at TMCC my secondary major was Webmaster. As such, I feel qualified to tell you nice job on your Web site!

- Michael

Michael, thank you for your very nice letter of praise - our whole office is
talking about it and appreciating what you said. Obviously you have
been through a lot and would like to see others succeed as you did but
without the pain and uncertainty. Your words of encouragement would
be appreciated by others and for that reason with your permission, we
would like to publish it at

I am Marilyn's father and help her with her website and other business
matters. She and her staff are even better than advertised (in my
humble opinion, haha). Again thank you for your response and we hope
you will give us permission to publish it. Maybe others will listen
to your powerful and persuasive message. Like you, I enjoy my
relationship with my daughter and wish every Dad the same opportunity.

Hello Heather,

Would you please share these kudos with Marilyn and staff?

I'm not in need of an attorney who fights fairly for men, but at one
time I was. It was an uphill battle to obtain the custody that I now have of my
daughter. The biggest part of that battle wasn't my ex-wife. It was rather
an automatic anti-man/pro-woman ideology or system that caused the
hardship in our case. Finally, after giving up on lawyers and humbly insisting
fairness from the judge, I fought my ex-wife and the system alone and
eventually won my cause. My goal was never to take my daughter away
from her mother because she needs both parents. My goal was to make sure that I
had fair and equal custody arrangements.

All of this probably knocked a few years off my life. At that time, If I had
an attorney who "gives a damn", as your commercial puts it, I may actually
have a longer lifespan. But it all worked out in the end. Attorneys who
actually care about father's rights are very difficult to find. Although I
no longer need an attorney like you, I personally know some men who
do. My feeling has always been that fathers should stop being cowards and
fight for their parental rights. Maybe they'll listen to someone like you.

Anyway, kudos to you and your staff for what you do. I love your

- Michael
