  • Jeremy's legal advice was sound and his guidance was extremely valuable.

    With apt representation from your firm, litigation was recently concluded on a matter which involved the court's unconditional approval of my request to permanently terminate monthly alimony payments adjudicated by my employer for several years, and most subsequently upon my retirement, by OPM, my federal pension administrator. In addition to the standard processing time for family court cases, COVID impacted my case in unfavorable ways but we had no control over that issue.

    I wish to personally recognize the services I received from Attorney Jeremy Boyer, CFLS, over the past several months. Honestly, I didn't know what to expect from your firm after selecting it to represent me based on Yelp reviews and other research I conducted via online websites. Fortunately, my case was assigned to Jeremy who managed my case efficiently, effectively, and fairly. He was very responsive to my follow-up inquiries and submissions of additional documentation or other pertinent information. A video hearing conference call was scheduled by South County Superior Court on August 2020 and he was well prepared to represent my best interests. Jeremy's legal advice was sound and his guidance was extremely valuable. He delved into my various options from the day he provided the initial free consultation and represented my continuing financial hardship to the court during an emergency video hearing, which ultimately sealed the case and drastically expedited my ability to obtain a certified copy of the final court order.

    Lastly, it would be very remiss of me not recognize Jessica Deatherage, Paralegal, for her exemplary support. In my humble opinion, she is the ultimate role model for all paralegals with the exception of my wife who is also a paralegal for the federal judiciary :-) Jessica was extremely responsive and is a strong communicator. She acted as a viable bridge between Jeremy and me when necessary. Their level of communication was outstanding. I'm grateful for her sense of professionalism and empathy demonstrated during our ongoing contacts.

    In sum, I rate your legal firm the perfect 10 and will recommend it to anyone with similar legal needs.

  • I’m very appreciative and grateful to have them represent me.

    I had a very complicated case regarding jurisdiction for my child. I was referred to MSM through my Out- of-State attorney when my Ex filed an Exparte Order against me. Kevin Polis and Brittany Dracup fought for me and my daughter against my very aggressive Ex and his lawyer. I am very grateful for their protection and stellar work. My case was very time sensitive. Kevin Polis and Brittany Dracup stayed up late, way past normal working hours, to respond on my behalf. After the Exparte Order was denied, they continued to help me fight to keep jurisdiction in my state. During that time, Kevin Polis kept in contact with me and was very transparent on what I needed to do. He was strong when I needed him. Kevin Polis has integrity and had a clear strategy. He knows the law and is very resourceful. In addition, Brittany Dracup has tremendous writing skills and was able to eloquently piece together my response in a very professional and factual manner. Brittany Dracup went above and beyond to gather evidence and articulate my points. She pays attention to details and was able to catch discrepancies that my Ex claimed. I had a lot to lose, however, with their representation they’ve allowed me to keep what’s most precious to me, my daughter.

    The case was closed and dismissed in my favor. Both Kevin Polis and Brittany Dracup are a great team- the winning team. I’m very appreciative and grateful to have them represent me. I'd also like to thank their supportive staff, as they were very responsive throughout my case.

  • Jim and his team tirelessly fought for me and for my daughters, and we are forever indebted and grateful.

    From the bottom of my heart, I want to pass along a warm, and humble - THANK YOU! - to each of your partners, and teammates at MSM. I cannot tell you what this gesture means for me and my family.

    Mr. Clark has been on a very long journey with us, as have his paralegals and the rest of the MSM team. I can never, NEVER thank you all, enough, for what your firm has done for me and my family. I was in a dark place when Jim found me. I'd already been through two divorce attorneys - was over two years into my fight - was well over 100 grand in debt, and had literally nowhere else to turn. He successfully represented a Teammate, through his trials & tribulations, and came highly recommended. Jim and the MSM team proved to be a savior... They NEVER GAVE UP. I've been in some hairy scrapes, but it took Jim to explain how the courtroom is a foreign battlefield for us. Jim was always a calming sanctuary through the Storm. You are true professionals; awe-inspiring to watch, on our behalf.

    Jim and his team tirelessly fought for me and for my daughters, and we are forever indebted and grateful. I know the MSM team already feels this, but it's a bit melancholy to watch that level of expertise move forward into retirement. I am just grateful to have had him in my corner fighting for me, to call him my friend, and for knowing the MSM team always "had our back" in battle!

    Thank you - each of you! - so very much, for this recognition. I'll keep grinding, out here... (still digging out of that divorce debt, hahaha) and hope to get back to all y'all, Stateside, soonest!

  • The case closed in my favor and I would absolutely seek out Kevin’s help again should anything arise.

    My experience with Kevin was phenomenal. Kevin is no-nonsense, which is needed in family court matters. He gave me no false hopes, but very clear steps and expectations of what would happen, what I needed to provide, and how to proceed. He communicated consistently and promptly, advocated for me appropriately with the other party’s lawyer, and in no way took advantage of me financially. He consistently suggested ways for me to utilize his services and the services of his office while still doing some legwork myself to diminish costs. As the responsive party in a custody court case who makes less than the petitioner, this was very important to me. The case closed in my favor and I would absolutely seek out Kevin’s help again should anything arise.

  • I strongly recommend Kevin to anyone looking for a highly competent and honest attorney.
    I was referred to your firm through a friend and I feel I could not have made a better choice. Working with Kevin Polis and your staff through this difficult time in my life could not have gone any easier or more straight forward. Kevin is very knowledgeable, experienced, and professional. His experience and understanding of the law helped me navigate the difficult decisions needed in order to provide the best outcomes for myself and my daughter. Early in the process, Kevin put me at ease, knowing that my case would be handled professionally and right the first time. I strongly recommend Kevin to anyone looking for a highly competent and honest attorney.

  • I should have just hired him in the beginning and saved all of the time lost and frustration.

    Once I was referred to Kevin at MSM and his team they listened and handled all of my concerns. Kevin's experience was perfect for my situation. The time it took was worth it and I was able to come out victorious in the end. I should have just hired him in the beginning and saved all of the time lost and frustration.

  • Thank you for helping me through the hardest time of my life.

    Kevin Polis is an incredible lawyer who fought for me for over two years. Not only did everything work out perfectly, my ex-wife dropped her lawyer and let Kevin finish out our case all by himself! The thing that I liked most about Kevin was his transparency. He is a straight shooter who will tell you exactly what to expect. It was very important to me to have this sort of trust. I can tell you that his professionalism and services were worth more than what I paid. If I ever have any legal issues when it comes to custody, I am calling him immediately. Thank you for helping me through the hardest time of my life.

  • Mr. Boyer and his staff did an excellent job throughout my entire divorce.
    I was referred to MSM Family Law through a work-supported program (Concern:EAP), and though no one chooses to go through the painful process a divorce brings I contacted the office and was immediately scheduled for a consultation with Jeremy Boyer. During my consultation with Mr. Boyer I found him to be knowledgeable regarding my rights, answered all my questions thoroughly and was extremely professional. I knew immediately he was the right choice to represent me. Mr. Boyer and his staff did an excellent job throughout my entire divorce. They submitted the proper documents and answered all my questions and concerns in a timely manner. He backed up all our conversations with an email to clarify what was discussed and eliminate any confusion about the process. While counsel for my ex-wife was less than stellar, Mr. Boyer consistently remained calm, professional and informed me of my rights. Mr. Boyer helped me to make fair and rational decisions until we finalized the divorce. Thank you MSM Family Law! I would also like to thank Sara and Stacie in Mr. Boyer's office. They were efficient and compassionate during what was a lengthy and frustrating case. I would highly recommend MSM Family Law and Jeremy Boyer to anyone looking for a competent law firm

  • Thank you for your excellent attention to detail and thoroughness.
    Mr. Schulman (et al), I'm writing to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation to you and your amazing team at MSM. We won! (I wanted to call Brenda today and share the AWESOME news but I got celebrating with my Kristen). We got termination! You made it happen. We met our goal - "termination". I can't thank you enough. May I extend a special word of gratitude to Brenda - Brenda, thank you! Thank you for putting up with me throughout this trying ordeal. I recognize my level of passion to win got the best of me at times. Thank you for your excellent attention to detail and thoroughness. You made this happen and Kristen and I are so grateful for you. To Mr. Schulman - amazing / your professionalism, command of the facts and deliverance of argument were masterful. I felt embarrassed for OC because you made him look like he was just "hanging on". Thank you for caring and thank you for the very best professional representation I could possibly ask for. Although I don't wish matters like this on anyone, rest assured I will offer anyone my absolute highest recommendation for team MSM. To Sarah and Julie and everyone else at MSM, my sincerest appreciation for all that you have done as well, for I know it took a team-effort to win and win we did.

  • I am so glad I retained Mr. Schulman
    I am a client of David Schulman. I retained Mr. Schulman August 2014 to handle my divorce. I was scared and financially outmatched. During the early part of 2014 I tried to resolve the matter without legal counsel. When I realized this was bigger than me, I called Moore Schulman and Moore on the advice of Edward Miley, Miley Law, out of Las Vegas. I am so glad I retained Mr. Schulman, as I had no idea just how complicated the process could be. Mr. Schulman made me feel more confident and settled as soon as I sat down with him for the consultation. He went to work for me immediately. He patiently explained the process and what to expect. He is aggressive, experienced and vigilant. I was fighting my ,soon to be, ex-husband who had unlimited financial resources. He tried every tactic, scaring me, intimidation and running me out of money. Throughout the entire journey, David Schulman never wavered. And then I met Julie Westerman. What an amazing attorney. She has a graceful sensitive approach and always adds a bit of humor. She navigated the complicated world of Law and translated it into terms I could understand. That talent cannot be overstated, divorce law is very complex. Julie always took the time to help me understand it all. I can remember during those early days of working with both Dave and Julie, thinking how did I get so blessed to have such talented people fighting for me. After 2 failed Mediations, we knew trial was inevitable. When I arrived back in San Diego for the Trial (September 13, 14 and 15), all I could think was what on earth can we argue about for three days. This is just about money. I learned very quickly on the first day, how OC can drag the process out to wear me down, assassinate my character, dismiss my role in a long term marriage and make me feel defeated. Dave and Julie assured me it was normal and not to feel defeated. Dave and Julie fought hard for me. They took care of me and held me up when I felt weak. After three of the hardest days of my life, we prevailed and won what we had asked for some two years ago in the first mediation. I am forever grateful to Dave Schulman, Julie Westerman, Kristin Carbone, Linda Hanson, Sarah Bear, Tanya Sanscartier, Brenda Rozynek, John Williams and all the other people who have worked on my case. Thank you for a great team.

  • We couldn't be more thrilled with the outcome.
    I would like to express how grateful my wife and I are after working with Jeremy on a custody case for my 12 year old son. From our first meeting and consultation, I was completely confident in Jeremy. He let us know exactly what to expect, and how he was going to get it done for us. He was a wiz in court; cool, calm, and collected. He over prepared me for every court appearance, and let me know exactly what was going to happen every step of the way. Joy was also a pleasure to work with. They make a seamless team together, and I felt confident in their hands. Overall, I would like to thank Jeremy, Joy, and the entire team there for such a great experience. We couldn't be more thrilled with the outcome.

  • I appreciate having Jeremy on my side throughout the process from beginning to end and would continue to recommend him.
    I wanted to provide some personalized feedback about my experience in working with Jeremy and his representation for my divorce case. My divorce was one of the most traumatic and upsetting experiences I've ever been through but after meeting four attorneys prior to Jeremy, I finally felt comfortable enough with him to hire him for my case and made the decision on the spot after his initial consultation. Jeremy was always very honest and responsive to me, and I believe he has a high work ethic to provide the best advice to his clients, even if it isn't what they want to hear, I respect that. His personality was easy to get along with for me as well, and would not think it possible to feel as comfortable as I did in the uneasy situations and litigations we were engaged in with my ex and her over the top attorney. I appreciate having Jeremy on my side throughout the process from beginning to end and would continue to recommend him.

  • Straight Shooter
    Dave Schulman will give it to you straight. He tells you what the legal issues are and the possible outcomes. He helped me take the emotion out of the decision making which dramatically drove down the cost of the legal wrangling. He battled for the issues that were important to me, and made it very clear when fighting for things like keeping my house were not worth the cost and time it would take. If you want someone who knows the ins and outs of family law and will give it to you straight, then Dave is the attorney for you.
  • I will always be thankful for Jeremy’s wise counsel, guidance and support.
    I would like to express my gratitude for the legal support Jeremy Boyer recently provided throughout my divorce process. When I first met Jeremy at the beginning of my separation, I had just entered the mediation process and was feeling defeated, willing to give away anything just to finalize my divorce quickly and avoid a court battle. I immediately felt like Jeremy understood the situation as he challenged me to change my mindset. I came to realize that at a minimum, I should expect what is fair under the current law for me and especially for my daughter. Jeremy had the experience necessary to accurately predict where my case would lead if I didn’t protect myself. He was straight forward, practical and carefully explained the legal code and case history relevant to my case. He was attentive to detail; even catching a financial oversight by the mediator and thereby saving me thousands of dollars. Jeremy was responsive and efficient, only spending as much time as needed, not wasting time as the pricey mediator did, and he was savvy to the often frustrating and confusing mediation process. Jeremy never encouraged me to “go after” my ex; but encouraged me to stand up for myself. Throughout the process, he even made me laugh which helped ease the emotional toll of the divorce. One of the most important outcomes from my interaction with Jeremy is that I became a strong advocate for myself and my daughter, challenging the mediator, challenging my ex, etc. I am happy to say the terms of my divorce are signed and sealed to the satisfaction of all parties involved and I will always be thankful for Jeremy’s wise counsel, guidance and support.

  • You did a fantastic job and I want to thank you for what is a huge, huge impact you’ve had on my daughter’s life.
    "You did a fantastic job and I want to thank you for what is a huge, huge impact you’ve had on my daughter’s life. She is currently a biology major in the honors program at Cal Poly. I just wanted to share some encouragement and thanks now that I’ve seen my daughter and raised her from 11 to now almost 19. I’ve watched her grow into an intelligent, articulate, and tremendous honor athlete. She was prom queen as well as cheer captain of the cheerleading team. She is now an incredibly happy, well-adjusted young lady as a direct result of your assistance. I am very grateful for your help."

  • I have recommended Peggy to several friends and family members over the years.
    “I hired Peggy a few years back and she was effective not only in getting my case closed once and for all, but I was finally able to have more time with kids. Additionally I never had to return to court ever after that. I have recommended Peggy to several friends and family members over the years. She gets the job done right the first time. I would recommend her to anyone who has a divorce or custody case.”

  • He is direct, efficient and focused and does not mislead you
    "Attorney Jeremy Boyer did an excellent job representing our case in Marital Law. Mr. Boyer was extremely confident and knowledgeable about all applicable codes and case history in our favor. He is direct, efficient and focused and does not mislead you with anticipated unrealistic court outcomes and false hopes. Mr. Boyer was able to persuade the Judge to provide a resolution that was acceptable to meeting our goal. We will hire Attorney Jeremy Boyer with all of our future legal needs. Thank you Mr. Boyer!
