    Sep 29 2017 Ryan Baumgartner represented me in a custody case and I am fully satisfied with the work he did. I was always aware of the status of my case and any filings or work he was doing behind the scenes. Mr. Baumgartner was transparent about the cost, timeline and reasoning behind any of his decisions and set reasonable expectations for results of my custody case. My case drug out for about a year (at no fault of Mr. Baumgartner). I received primary physical custody of my son, his father was ordered to pay approximately half of my lawyer fees, as well as child support. It was outlined in the decree that much of the reason behind the ruling was due to information presented by my counsel (Ryan). His hours of research and preparation showed in the courtroom and he did not leave a stone unturned. I feel Ryan went above and beyond my very high expectations while handling my extremely difficult and complex case. I would refer anyone to him for divorce or custody cases.
