R. Lane November 7, 2023
Best Family Law Attorney- they don’t waste time Ed Hecht is by far the most passionate person I have ever met. He is very smart and knows his clients needs thoroughly. He will fight for you at your weakest moments. He is a unicorn of attorneys in this area. Do NOT go to others until you speak with him first. I’m not just saying that- I’ve been to a few firms that will take your $ and not speak with you. Ed will make the process EASY so you don’t have to update handwritten forms like the other attorneys in the area. These individuals wear a vest of empathy but they are bulldogs at the end of the day for you to get what you deserve!!!!!!!!

Thanks Ed and Bryson! I'm glad to be starting my new life after divorce. I was in the process of negotiating an uncontested divorce (outside of court) with my ex-spouse, when I was surprised by a court summons I received in the mail. My ex and her attorney filed a contested divorce case in the middle of negotiated an uncontested settlement! The attorney that was helping me prepare the uncontested divorce documents referred me to a list of trial attorneys, including Ed and team. I happened to interviewed two other trail attorneys first, but I decided to go with Ed after our first conversation. Ed really understood my situation. Not only is he an experienced divorce attorney, but he also went through a difficult divorce himself. He helped me to put my situation into perspective and helped me to focus on the most important aspect, which was my children. I worked with Ed and Bryson for 15 months. There were lots of court delays due to COVID in addition to my ex and I not coming to terms quickly. During the intake meeting (our first meeting to discuss the case), Bryson walked me through what the divorce process would most likely look like. He explained all of the steps we will go through and all of the opportunities to come to a settlement before we actually go to trial. He explained why people go through each step and what is most likely to happen for me based on my situation. Looking back, we ended up going through that exact process he laid out; and settling 2 weeks before the court date which he expected based on how far apart my ex and I were. We attended Zoom court hearings, in person mediation, and late case evaluation; in addition to many phone calls discussing all the complex aspects of my case. One of the first accomplishments we had was establishing a temporary custody schedule with my kids. This is something that would never have happened without Ed and Bryson's help. I was having difficulty getting any type of regular schedule established with my ex. They were able to get my ex to agree to a fair schedule, which included half of the Christmas break just a few weeks before Christmas break. This is even prior to the first 30 day status conference with the judge. Over the course of the 15 months of negotiation, we were able to establish that I would have my kids 5 days out of every 14 days. This was after starting with only having them every other Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon. The settlement agreement turned out to be extremely valuable. I have already cut and pasted from it numerous time in communications with my ex, when she decides rules don't apply to her. It has ended a few arguments before they even started. Even post divorce, Ed's advice is valuable and has helped me avoid problems as well as giving me a better understanding of legal options when my ex isn't following our settlement agreement. Thanks Ed and Bryson! I'm glad to be starting my new life after divorce.

I am an attorney as well as a divorced father of two young children and I specialize in all aspects of family law including divorce, child custody, child support, modifications of custody and support, paternity, legitimation, temporary protective orders, contempt of court orders, parental rights, adoption, and more.

My unique background as a single father gives me a great understanding of my clients and the challenges they face. I know what they are going through and how they feel because I've been through it, as well, and I inherently understand the necessity of being a caring, expert advocate for others going through this painful process.

I will help you get through whatever family law situation you are facing, and I'm here to protect your and your children's rights as well as help you deal with the emotional aspects of it all. I understand it firsthand, having dealt with it in my own life.
