The Law Offices of Brett R. Wishart assisted me during a very difficult and complicated legal proceeding. After having a terrible experience with a previous law firm, Brett and his staff handled my case efficiently and fairly. I was very pleased with the overall outcome and general guidance throughout the entire process. Brett and his entire team were easily accessible via both email and telephone communication. I would highlight The Law Offices of Brett R. Wishart to anyone in need of legal assistance.
I can’t say enough good things about Brett and his team. From day one, Brett worked tirelessly to ensure that my son’s best interest was the priority in my post-judgement modification. I came to Brett needing immediate help getting custody changed and he handled the entire process with professionalism, care, and integrity. He also helped navigate the difficult process of getting substance abuse testing and monitoring. He has given me a peace of mind when my son is on visitation that, as a parent, you simply cannot put a price on. I am so grateful for everything that Brett has done and his legal assistant, Holly, is also an incredible asset. Thank you Brett and Holly for all you have done!.
We had a previous attorney helping with our case who dropped the ball halfway through and Brett and his team were able to step up and see the case from our point of view. He worked late nights and was always available for any questions and we were very pleased with the outcome of the case. Highly recommend him to everyone we know.
Brett Wishart is an exceptional attorney. He is kind, diplomatic and assertive. More importantly, he gets results. By the end of my case, opposing counsel looked like she was about to cry in utter defeat. Brett helped bring the truth and facts to light in my court case. He never missed a beat. He’s worth every penny and I’d gladly hire him again. Because of Brett Wishart, my daughter is safe.
Initially, I thought I wanted an aggressive, bulldog type of attorney. Don’t let Brett Wishart’s calm, collected and charismatic demeanor fool you. He is like the calm before the storm. In the courtroom, he will take the floor right from under opposing counsel. HE IS THE BEST!!!
Thank you Brett Wishart for giving my daughter the life that she deserves. My family and I appreciate you and your staff.
Brett Wishart is the best family law attorney in southern California! 6 out of 5 stars! He’s the best! He is incredibly knowledgeable of the law and he has years upon years of experience in the courtroom. He is confident, capable, and articulate and it readily shows. He helped me to be calm during a time when there was nothing to be calm about. Brett gets results! I am so glad I had Brett on my side! I recommend Brett Wishart to anyone in need of an excellent attorney to help them with any family law issues! I would not hesitate to call and hire Brett again if I ever need him!

Brett and his team are seriously the best out there.
Thank you VERY much Brett.
Wow.. where do I even begin with Brett Wishart and the rest of the team at his law firm. Brett, Jeff and Holly were absolutely incredibly in walking me through everything and being there for me to take care of my nasty divorce I was going through. I was lost and confused not to mention overwhelmed with what needed to be done and the fact that I had just become a singe mother. I had no idea where to begin or what steps needed to be taken in the divorce process but Brett, Jeff and Holly did everything they could to ensure my daughter was protected. Brett and his team are not only extremely professional and caring but very well respected by the judges as court as well.
They truly care about the well being for my daughter and I cannot be more thankful. They were able to make a very difficult/draining situation bearable because I knew they would do what it takes to have what is fair. I saw the light at the end of the tunnel far sooner than most because of there acute attention to detail and quick action so that my daughter and I could have justice. I will forever be grateful for Brett, Jeff and Holly for what they have done for my little family.
I will continue to always go to Brett and the team for anything further I will need. They give you an incredible sense of comfort knowing that they have all the information regarding my case and actually know the facts. I will forever be in debt to them because without them, life wouldn’t be as amazing as it is today. I owe them everything. You will be so grateful if you decide to use their services. The level of professionalism, knowledge and care cannot be competed with.
Sometimes domestic issues cannot be solved domestically and you will need a Mr. Wolfe (Harvey Keitel). Brett Wishart is our Mr. Wolf. He is no nonsense attorney, who when you retain him, tells you the child’s interest is what drives his practice. And yes, that is what drives his practice. He has ethics. He will advise you when you’re wrong; he will prioritize the scope of issues; he will complete everything on time; he will advocate in your interest; he will convincingly educate the court; and, he will guide you through the complexity with simplicity. His name is Mr. Brett Wishart. He solves problems.
Brett is the most down to earth, knowledgeable and experienced attorney I have come in contact with so far.
From the beginning, he actively listened to my concerns, presented practical options and was empathetic towards my very complicated situation (child custody, visitation, and a lengthy 730 evaluation process).
I look forward to his advise as my case continues and trust he will help me and my family make the right decisions. Thank you, Brett, for all you do for us!
EXCELLENT FAMILY ATTORNEY WHO SUCCESSFULLY HELPED ME THROUGH A 730 CHILD CUSTODY CASE
Brett Wishart is an excellent attorney who successfully counseled me through a very difficult child custody case. I was so concerned about going through a lengthy 730 court evaluation as I knew nothing about this procedure. Brett’s kind and compassionate demeanor helped me through the entire process which ended with a highly satisfactory resolution. His skillful negotiations enabled me to receive a much greater percent of physical custody as well as a favorable to me modified legal custody of my children. Brett is confident, prepared at all times, and he promptly answered emails and phone calls. I also appreciated that he took the time to quickly become familiar with all aspects of my case. I have referred several others to Brett and each has gratefully thanked me for recommending him. I also have to add that Brett’s paralegal, Holly, is very kind, easy to work with and also has a positive and friendly demeanor. I give Brett and his staff a 5 star review!
–A very grateful and happy client!
I met with Brett on June 16th. We met for an hour and he was about 10 minutes late. I was skeptical right from the beginning because he started by telling me about his family and to convey that he’s compassionate and that he’s an advocate for marriage. I’ve been seeing a therapist for 6 months, so I knew what I wanted. What alarmed me the the most was that once I told him about my situation (I’ve been with my partner for 15 years but never obtained/filed a marriage license), he had too look it up in the book (code 300 on definition of marriage)! Apparently, he’s unfamiliar with the situation. In addition, consider that he charged me $400 for consultation, he didn’t even bother to review my documents (very simple ones). He said he won’t read/review anything until I sign the retainer. I didn’t realize how “off” he was until I shared my experience with some of my friends. A week later, I found a great lawyer. He took time with me over the phone, knew exactly what to do, and invited me for a free consultation the very next day. When we met, he’s already thought through my case and came up with a recommendation. He walked me through the other options as well and reviewed documents I brought (all off the clock!). He also charges $400 per hour, but gave me a fix price because he thought my case’s pretty straight forward and explained all the steps in detail with me. It was a night and day experience! I just want to suggest to everyone be aware of attorneys to charge a consultation fee. You want an attorney who’s interested in you and is not all about the money. My attorney is in Long Beach and has 35 years of experience in marriage law.
Brett was very efficient, patient, knowledgable and respectful. He is well known and liked within the court. I first hired a different lawyer for my case that was a complete disaster and Brett came in and cleaned up the mess. Thanks to him, I won on everything in regards to my custody case and couldn’t be more pleased! His staff is helpful and professional as well. If you are going to hire a lawyer – I definitely recommend Brett.
Words cannot express the gratitude I have for Brett Wishart and his staff. I came to Brett looking for guidance and wisdom and I left his office with much more. I was facing going back to court to resolve childcare issues that were left undefined in my previous agreement. He assured me that I was within the law and my expectations were realistic. He kept me very informed throughout the process while educating me along the way, placing my mind at ease knowing I was in good hands. He and his staff work very hard to return phone calls, emails, or setting up a meeting. I always felt like my case was on his desk and it was clear in his negotiations with opposing counsel that I chose the right lawyer. I would recommend the law office of Brett Wishart to anyone looking for an honest, caring, intelligent lawyer who knows the law and how it works for you.
Hired Mr Wishart to help me with a child custody issue where I was seeking equal time share with my ex. I previously hired another attorney that was more interested in billing me hours rather than my situation. Brett took the time to truly hear my circumstances and then was able to make realistic, accurate recommendations as to our best course of action.
He’s the kind of lawyer that doesn’t want every case for the sake of taking it. I got the sense that if he didn’t believe in you it’d be hard for him to do his job. However, if you have a case where you are geniune, and in need of sound, accurate, advice…Brett is your man!
Ps. Holly in their office is awesome too!
I hired Brett Wishart as my lawyer. I want to make this review short and sweet. I could go on and on about the outstanding service this firm provided for me.
I interviewed 4 different firms before picking Brett as my attorney. Brett is super sincere and on point like no other. I was a little hesitant about the hourly rate and it was out of my budget. I will tell you this much it was worth every penny! You get what you pay for. When you are in a jam like I was you need a race horse to pull you out of that jam. Brett Wishart is just the man to do it. I know one thing, if I ever get into another jam it will be a no brainer for me to call Brett again. Brett didn’t beat around the bush, and he was straight to the point. Holly his assistant was on point and had my back every step of the way. I was super confident going into battle with a warrior like Brett! I highly recommend this firm.
If you want to win, you better hire this guy!
Through a long and difficult time Brett Wishart and his staff have been knowledgeable, effective, patient, kind and understanding. Though compassionate, Brett is aggressive when the situation requires him to be. Both in and out of court, Brett has proven to be an outstanding attorney. He is attentive and I believe he really cares about his clients and their needs. Holly, his assistant, is an absolute delight to work with. I did my research and consulted several attorneys so that I could be sure I was getting someone that understood my needs and would fight for me….I couldn’t be more pleased with my decision to retain Brett.
Brett Wishart helped me through a long and very difficult divorce. He’s knowledgeable, effective and pays close attention to detail. Brett is sincerely compassionate and continuously fought for me and the well being of my children and our needs. His closing argument was aggressive, detailed and on point with facts and timelines. Brett always made sure that the court was completely educated at all times. Needless to say I was very please with his performance throughout the divorce and very pleased with the outcome.
His assistant Holly is awesome to work with. She’s caring, detailed and efficient. She always makes sure she gets back to you in a timely manner as well.
I have great appreciation for the continual fight! I highly recommend Brett and his team to anyone who is looking for an excellent lawyer and staff.
I would recommend Brett to anyone and everyone. I replaced my previous council with Mr. Wishart after about three and a half years of a horribly messy and drawn out custody dispute. He was able to help bring the matter to an end within a few months. Excellent representation.
Mr. Wishart has been representing me since August 2017, I can’t be more happier. After he got me 50/50 legal custody in 2017, it was time to get 50/50 physical custody.
His arguments are flawless; he presented the court with the facts and evidence the court needs. He got me 50/50 custody.
He stayed after the hearing for hours making sure the order is typed up and clear to avoid errors.
Mr. Wishart, cares for his clients. He is very knowledgeable. He work and study the case before trial. He is an honest man.
He will be always my attorney.
Brett and his staff were professional, knowledgeable and considerate of my situation. Brett did an outstanding job in court fighting for my financial future
Great attorney and extremely knowledgeable. Very impressed. Works hard for his clients and would most definitely recommend.
My husband and I highly recommend Brett R. Wishart and his team of highly qualified professionals for any issues regarding family law. Our case was highly contentious and dealt with complex and difficult matters from a previous divorce from over 5 years ago. Brett’s team was able to negotiate a settlement that was creative and used out of the box thinking that clearly benefited us and our children. We were able to get 50/50 custody of our son that was heavily contested. He also got us an end date for alimony that was previously for life, and at the same time he was able to keep us from having to pay for any of the opposing counsel’s fees. Everything that we wanted in the settlement, and even more so, Brett and his team were able to accomplish for us. They were a true blessing for us and we are eternally grateful.
He did a great job of taking care of our case in a quick and effective manner! Truly cares about helping out his clients. 5/5 stars!
I had Brett processed my divorce which was contentious to start which made it last longer. He and his team worked it out successfully so we could settle without going to court made us both happy. Kudos!

A friend of mine recommanded Brett to me. He told me he did an amazing job grilling his ex wife during his trial. My wife and I were involved in a very volatile custody case that turned into a domestic violence case against her ex husband. So an attorney that could truly handle himself well during a trial was a high priority to us. Our boys well being depended on it as did our piece of mind. From our first meeting with Brett we could see that he was the right choice for us. From start to finish we had complete confidence in Brett. Every time we were in court we could see Brett was in complete charge of our case. He took the lead for us and for the opposing attorneys (her ex had several). We could see he was running the show and when the trial finally came I’d say he pitched a no hitter. We got a 3 year restraining order, sole custody with no visitation for her ex. Justice was served and now the kids can go about their lives without disruption from disturbed individuals. Thanks Brett ! We appreciate that more than you can know!
When my Ex husband served me papers for custody of my kids, someone highly recommended Brett Wishart. In fact he demanded that I see Brett and told me “don’t take a chance with another attorney regarding your kids.” Although my case started as a custody case it later ended up as a Domestic Violence Restraining Order case. I was never physically hurt from bruises or hospitalized, his abuse was more mental and psychological. Brett was able to present my case to the judge and the judge got it. I left court getting more than I asked for. I ended up with the restraining order, got sole custody and my ex didn’t even get visitation. I would have never gotten what I got if I went with another attorney. I would rate Brett an A++ and 100 stars if I could! Even my Ex commented after trial what a great attorney Brett is and wished he retained Brett himself. If Brett accepts your case, consider yourself very lucky! I can tell you when he goes to court he goes in to WIN !
Have worked with he and Holly for sometime now, including in person and over the phone. They both are sharp, attentive, thorough, concerned, determined and hard-working! Their office has a very comfortable feel to it, and very non-threatening!
When you have so much on the line it is so important to have the right lawer. I feel so lucky to have Brett Wishart on MY SIDE when it counts the most. I don’t know how he dose it but he made me feel like I was his only client. He always got right back to me and made me feel so relaxed with his advise and plan of action.
You need to have his number saved in your phone as a favorite bc you never know when you will need him.
Mr. Wishart is an amazing attorney. He is well versed in the law and knows how to position his clients for success. Brett is great at making sure his clients understand what the law says and how to get the best possible outcome in very difficult situations. Not only is he a great attorney, he is also very kind and easy to work with. He and his team are prompt, quick to respond, hard working, and the cross their t’s and dot their i’s — very detailed. You won’t be disappointed in choosing Brett Wishart for any of your Family Law needs, he’s the best!

Brett is an outstanding lawyer! I have had some friends use Brett and he comes highly recommended . After my first meeting with Brett, there was no question that he would be the attorney for me. Knowing he’ll be on my side and protecting my interests. Brett is an honest, intelligent, hardworking, and well-studied lawyer. He is the kind of person who will tell you what you need to hear, over what you want to hear. If it is not obvious already, let me state that I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Brett Wishart.
5 BRIGHT STARS for Brett Wishart and his team of professionals. I can always count on Brett for sound and honest legal advice. I appreciate that he is available and willing to take the time with each client, always advocating the absolute best results for his clients. Thank you!
I recommend Brett Wishart and his staff without any hesitation or reservation to anyone in need of stellar, excellent representation and advice in any Family Law matter or case! Brett is amazing! He has a deep knowledge and understanding of Family Law and he has many, many years of experience practicing law and advocating zealously for his clients. He exceeded my expectations in all aspects regarding representing me throughout all phases of my case. He is respectful and responsive; he is articulate and confident in the courtroom. He has extensive experience in the courtroom and his ability to articulate my position and argue my case was obviously apparent. He is the best Family Law attorney in Orange County! No question! I would not trust my case to anyone else. Brett is worth 6 out of 5 stars!
If you’re searching for exceptional quality of representation combined with complete commitment to you and your case, then Brett Wishart is the Family Law Attorney you are looking for. During my consultation Brett expertly formed a strategy for my unique case and navigated me through the process with ease. His experience and preparedness made all the difference in court.
If you are searching for an EXCEPTIONAL Family Law attorney, look no further. Having had disappointing experiences with several other Family Law attorneys in Orange County over the years, I can honestly say that Brett Wishart is hands down the best attorney out there. There is a lot of emotion involved in family law cases, but when it comes down to brass tacks the most important asset you have while going through this process is an attorney that is prepared at all times and can successfully and professionally litigate on your behalf.
My divorce was finalized about 1 month ago – I hired Brett to handle my case and I was very pleased with his performance, communication and the final result/judgement that he helped me win in my case. Being a man with a young child and looking to gain equal custody I was very concerned that the odds were stacked against me as I’ve always heard the courts favor the mother when dealing with a younger child. Brett wasn’t fazed by this and stated that he wins equal custody for fathers regularly. That was what I wanted to hear because nothing else mattered to me in my case other than making sure I had equal time with my son. At the start of my divorce I met with 3 attorneys and decided Brett was the best for me and I’m glad I made that decision. He has a calm and intelligent demeanor and you can tell he is respected by the judges and their staff in the courtroom. He was very professional when dealing with my ex’s attorney which I think goes a long way toward achieving a favorable result. In the end after multiple court appearances I was able to come to an agreement with my ex that Brett helped orchestrate and the judge signed off granting me equal custody. I am so happy to put this ordeal behind me and I’m very glad I had Brett there with me to help get it done. One great thing about Brett is he is not a stodgy/stuffy lawyer – he is a down to earth guy that you will enjoy working with and talking to and you can tell everybody that he interacts with feels the same way. I would absolutely recommend Brett to anybody in need of a family law attorney.
Brett has deep knowledge and understanding of the law, but his greatest asset is his practical approach to problem solving and genuine interest in helping people. He provided great advice in helping me work through a difficult situation.
Mr. Wishart is an outstanding marriage and family law attorney. Throughout my divorce case, he not only demonstrated a deep understanding of the law but also the complicated and nuanced divorce process. More importantly, Brett did a great job understanding my emotional and financial needs/concerns. He always did his best to address my concerns, and he never quit trying to optimize the outcome of a very difficult (perhaps impossible) situation.
I cannot give Mr. Wishart a higher recommendation. If you are going through divorce or are thinking about divorcing, I would strongly recommend contacting Mr. Wishart. He is experienced, skilled, balanced, hardworking, and will never quit fighting for you.
I have nothing but great things to say about the law offices of Brett Wishart. After retaining my first family law attorney I felt left down so I moved on to my second attorney. Come to find out she decided to retire two years into retaining her. So I was in a bind looking for another attorney with trail set within two months. I started reading reviews on yelp and came across Brett Wishart. When meeting with Brett, he came across honest and sincere and very down-to-earth. Brett did not come across as an aggressive attorney but what he is, is a focused, organized and thorough attorney. He cares about your case. We spoke for an hour about my lengthly divorce and I completely felt comfortable with him. What I was looking for an attorney to do for me was close my 3yr lengthy divorce. I did not want to prolong the upcoming trial. Brett accepted the challenge and worked his tail off to go to trial within two months. Needless to say he delivered and closed my case. Thank you very much to the law offices of Brett Wishart for your great work. If you are looking for an honest and reliable attorney I strongly suggest you make a phone call to his office. You will not regret it. Thanks again Brett.
I searched, prayed and am thankful I found the Law Offices of Brett Wishart after reading reviews of testimonies from clients of cases he’s been involved with. I had never been through a divorce and didn’t know who or where to turn to, nor did I know how to fight for the custody of my daughter. I knew I had a difficult case due to wanting to move out of state with my daughter. I had one attorney and a few acquaintances tell me I really didn’t have a chance. In my consultation with Brett Wishart he stated he has helped clients in my situation with success. Brett Wishart was straight forward giving me a positive vibe and for the first time I felt I had found someone who could and would help me. With a professional approach, calm but firm attack, exemplary guidance and knowledge of Brett Wishart and his office staff, I was awarded the move away with my daughter! I could not be more grateful. Thank you Brett, Holly and Yolie! God Bless
I have known Brett Wishart for 3 years. My first contact with him was regarding a child custody case. From the onset, Brett took great interest in that case, was professional and always available when I needed him.
Because of this, I retained Brett again for a divorce I was going through. Not to my surprise, Brett took great interest in my case. He is very knowledgeable in family law and current case law. As I client, you want an attorney you can trust and someone who gives you updates on your case. You will find that in Brett. You don’t have to worry about him, because he gives 100% for you and he is just a nice guy. His paralegal Holly is always kind, a good listener and pleasure to talk to. Together Brett and Holly make a good team! I highly recommend him if you need an outstanding family law attorney. To all my fellow LEO’s, he is the guy to go to.
I want to thank Brett Wishart and his staff, Holly and Yolie. They were extremely friendly, helpful and professional in helping us through a very tough time. Though my wife and I are no longer together, Mr Wishart made this experience extremely easy and we were able to find an amicable agreement that did not require uncomfortable court time. I highly recommend Brett Wishart and his family law practice to anyone and everyone. Thank you so much!!
My wife and I referred a friend to Brett to help defend herself against a husband who was using every means available to build a divorce and custody case to his advantage. As the case proceeded through various court hearings, in addition to Brett’s competent advice and legal practice, we were thrilled to see the great respect that officials in the court system had for Brett. The court’s tone, the questions and the accommodations by the judge and her assistant clearly favored Brett and put the husband and his attorney on the defense.Brett skillfully navigated each challenge and road block and, more importantly, made all of us involved in the case confident and assured that we were getting the very best representation.
As a result of Brett’s strategic legal work, the husband eventually asked for an amicable settlement and the harassment has stopped.
I heartily recommend Brett Wishart.
To all single fathers and mothers that are looking for proper legal representation for a divorce – The Law Offices of Brett R. Wishart is it. I speak from experience as I brought Brett my case after being represented poorly by two other law firms – one of which “is the go to.” They had completed my case file with so many errors that the court would not accept the documentation. Brett and his team made sense of the pre-existing work and quickly corrected the issues and was able to get me in front of a judge to settle my case. He not only did this in a timely manner, but with a MUCH more favorable outcome than I imagined possible. I contribute this to his impressive knowledge of the legal system. I realize that some reviews seem “fluffy” but truly out of 3 attorneys in 2.2 years, Brett was the only one that was able to resolve my case and did so with empathy and care. I appreciate all this firm has done.
Thank you Brett, Jeff and Yolie!
I would like to thank Brett and Holly ONCE AGAIN. I was in desperate need of help, so I called Brett and Holly. There wasn’t much time but both Brett and Holly jumped right on it. They prepared A response letter within a couple days and had me ready to go. Brett is extremely knowledgeable, and he was also extremely reassuring throughout the entire process. He quickly answered all my questions and carefully explained every single step of the process. Thank you Brett and Holly once again for representing me. I am glad I went with you guys.
BEST OF THE BEST
My situation was somewhat unique in that I had been divorced already for 7 years. I have three kids and my ex wife lives within a mile of me. She hired an attorney and then filed for a child support modification with outrageous demands. I had no choice but to hire an attorney and so I set out to interview several. After speaking to several attorneys and not really sure who to hire, I lastly met with Brett. One of the first things that impressed me about Brett was that family law is the only law that he practices; it is what he specializes in. Other attorneys practice multiple types of law. Listening to the way he was going to approach my case made it very obvious to me at that moment to hire him on the spot. Aside from that, I got a great sense that Brett was a real person. He is a great listener, very compassionate and aggressive at the same time. He truly knows the law in our county and along with his amazing team, worked tremendously hard on my case. I truly believe that the opposing counsel was overwhelmed at the iron clad case that Brett put together on my behalf. We ended up settling everything without having to go too far through the system. I would highly recommend Brett Wishart’s office for anybody’s family law needs.
Brett Wishart has stood up for me like I was his brother and He takes to heart his position as my advocate. He is fair, considerate, has manners, treats others with respect and most important is ethical and moral in his approach to this messy process. I was wrongly accused of Domestic Violence by my wife in which her attorney Lisa Hughes tried in vain to to win her case. Brett is an award winning Attorney in Orange County for all the right reasons.
I came to Brett with a very unique and what I felt was a messy and confusing case. I had just moved back from living overseas and needed some guidance regarding the divorce process. Going through a divorce can be an emotional time but Brett is very personable and compassionate. He made the confusing process understandable and clear. He takes the time to explain and answer any questions. He has a good head on his shoulders and most of all remains calm. He is a very good listener and keeps rational when things get crazy.
Brett is efficient even though he is very busy with other cases as well. He has a good team and when he wasn’t available, his associate Jeffrey Lewis stepped in and already knew everything going on. I didn’t need to fill him in as he already read up on my case and Brett guided him through our plans. I didn’t feel at all misguided or pushed aside. They are both very professional and have great communication because Jeffrey Lewis helped out with my case a couple times throughout the process. I really recommend both as they are a great team.
Brett definitely guided me through the process and helped me understand what was best. He was clear and direct. He definitely tries to be the voice of reason through the emotional ups and downs and keeps it all grounded. Thanks to Brett the long process of my divorce is complete due to his hard work, dedication, and efforts to finalize everything before getting too messy. What a relief! I would highly recommend Brett to anyone searching for a Family Law Lawyer. You will not be disappointed!
I recommended Brett Wishart to a friend of mine who needed a good family attorney in a guardianship case. I went with her to their first visit and he was compassionate for her circumstances and completely understanding of her needs. He was clear on his recommendations for her case moving forward and great in his communication. I know personally he has been there each step of the way through a very challenging process. Its great to know that Brett completely understands that families can be complicated and each case is unique. With children involved, its important to have an attorney that knows how to navigate the legal system and still be very sensitive to their needs too. Brett has that great balance for both!
I selected Brett Wishart to represent me in my divorce and I was very satisfied with the results. The divorce was complicated by custody issues and by a debt my ex-husband had illegally accrued during our marriage. Mr. Wishart was very understanding of my concerns and assured me that he could and would handle all of the issues.
He is a knowledgeable attorney with a calm, professional demeanor. He shows compassion for your problems and he demonstrates his commitment to solving the legal ones in a sure, confident manner.
Mr. Wishart explained the options and costs of a possible trial versus a settlement. Mr. Wishart and I agreed that working for a settlement would be our best option. With Mr. Wishart’s firm knowledge of the law and his negotiating skills he was able to obtain a very fair settlement.
I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a family law attorney. His experience, knowledge, and commitment to his clients is unparalleled.
Getting divorced is a painful process and finding someone who can guide you through the pitfalls in a positive manner is tricky. Hiring Brett was the best decision I’ve made and his expertise and handling of my case has made this difficult time more manageable. The legalities of family law are overwhelming to me but with Brett’s guidance I’m getting through the process the best I can and he’s been nothing short of fantastic!
Brett has been helping us through an extremely complicated divorce. His legal expertise, demeanor and relationships in the courthouse have proven to be extraordinary. We’ve been extremely pleased with Brett’s handling of this matter and would recommend him wholeheartedly. Whether your case is easy or complicated it’s great having Brett in your corner to help you through this unpleasant process! You could not be in better hands than Brett’s!
As a single father, the system can feel stacked against you. Brett Wishart’s office has done a great job for me, and in spite of my complicated move-away custody case, in the end I was awarded sole physical custody of my 6-year-old son. They had a detailed approach to the legal arguments and case law, which our judge found to be useful and persuasive, and also made sure to incorporate the personal information that made my case (and I’m sure every case is) unique, giving me the comfort that everything that could be done, was being done, and giving the judge the best possible information for making a good decision.
Personality-wise, Brett and his associates’ demeanor is confident, professional, organized, and friendly. Many attorneys advertise an aggressive “bulldog” persona, and I felt more secure with the collected approach Brett Wishart takes – getting aggressive when necessary, but always staying in control. It’s very easy to get emotional in divorce and custody cases, but an attorney should be the voice of reason, and that is what worked best for my case, reassuring me that my goals were reasonable, and achieving them.
Finally, they were up front about estimated costs, and didn’t nickel and dime me with extra charges.
I engaged Brett Wishart and his team (Yolie & Holly) to help me with my divorce under some unique circumstances. I live in Florida and I am a full-time resident of Florida – never even lived in California. My ex-wife filed for divorce in California so it was imperative I found a highly competent attorney in California, and within Orange County.
Being a former attorney, I did a lot of research and determined Brett and his team would be the best choice for me. My research proved true – Brett is an incredible attorney and walked me through each step of the process, explaining each option and what to expect. Moreover, he was very understanding and displayed a high level of empathy for me, since divorce is a very personal matter. His team were very thoughtful, engaging and highly competent.
Brett plans for the worse / most difficult outcome so there are no surprises, but works diligently at trying to preserve / achieve the best outcome, thus reducing stress & reducing legal fees. I am very grateful for his counsel and highly recommend him as an attorney and as a genuinely understanding person.
I worked with Brett and Holly on a protracted divorce proceeding. The outcome was positive and the team was professional. I was an active participant in my case and we all worked as a team to achieve a positive outcome.
Maintaining active participation and involvement is important to achieve the desired outcome. This team is easy to work with, professional and responsive.
Brett and his staff did an amazing job! I always felt confident I was in good hands. When I was placed in front of the judge because my ex spouse decided to get “ugly” Brett was right next to me and 100% prepared. It wasn’t a fun journey going through this divorce. All of my family lives back in Chicago so I was on my own. Brett and his staff took me in and always felt like I was in good hands. I’m SO happy it’s done — thank you Brett and Jeff!
I highly recommend Them!
Mr. Wishart is an excellent attorney. He is very knowledgable and skilled in what he does. Mr. Wishart and his paralegal Yolie, were always on top of everything and kept me informed in every step of the way. I highly recommend Mr. Wishart, if you’re looking for a really good family law attorney.
My review is written from a spouse’s perspective. Although my husband was the client, I was authorized to share in communications and help facilitate information where I could. Our first experience with a family law attorney had been absolutely disastrous and resulted in dead beat Dad wage garnishments in a very unfair amount and loss of 50-50 custody. Although there was solid proof that my husband had never been a deadbeat Dad, this attorney had no interest in fighting it and claimed that California law is so biased towards mothers you just have to accept it. After relaying frustration to this former attorney, he simply stopped working on the case although he never informed us of the fact and continued to bill us for over a year. Needless to say when we discovered the state of things, we were very gun shy and worried about hiring another attorney to clean up his mess. We wanted someone who actually had a moral compass, strong integrity and someone who would not tolerate the type of bullying and lies perpetuated by the ex-wife over the last many years. Because faith is an important part of our life we looked for an attorney who shared similar beliefs and were recommended to Brett Wishart by a family member. During the initial consultation, Mr. Wishart was very upfront with us that he was not a Barracuda but would fight aggressively for what was fair and in the best interests of both my husband and his son. This was all that we had ever wanted in the first place so it seemed like a great match.
After hiring Mr. Wishart he got down to business and pushed through the original paperwork that our former attorney had been sitting on. He then turned his attention to $15,000 of overpayments my husband had been forced to make to his ex-wife. He was able to get this money credited back to my husband. He also protected my Husband aggressively when he was laid off from work. Although the ex-wife had gotten remarried and was living a very affluent lifestyle, in severe contrast to our own, she felt the need to come after my husband’s small amount of severance and unemployment. Brett was able to minimize all of this and also squashed her crazy attempt to force my husband to work two jobs simply because he had done it ten years ago during their marriage. My husband related to me that Brett was amazing in court and that he didn’t back down when the ex-wife and her new spouse were making demands and claiming that everything was unfair to them. The best part of the court visit apparently occurred when my husband overheard the ex-wife’s attorney telling her client that Brett Wishart was a renowned attorney and not to think that she could push him around like the last one.
We have another court case coming up this Summer where support will have to be recalculated due to new employment. Brett was very reassuring that this time around, we would be on the offensive for the first time instead of the past decade of my husband getting mowed over in court.
We have seen Brett’s business grow since we hired him and we believe he is very successful for solid reasons, because of his integrity, skill in the courtroom and sense of fairness. We are incredibly grateful that we have his counsel and protection and will remain his clients for the long term. We would not hesitate to recommend his services to anyone who is looking for an honest and reliable attorney.
I have had the pleasure of working with Mr. Wishart for the past few years. I was referred to him from a relative of mine. I had been dealing with a really difficult court case and an even more difficult attorney. My last attorney wasn’t returning any of my calls. I was constantly being left out of the loop as far as where my case stood and it just seemed that my situation was completely out of my hands and getting worse by the week.
I hired Mr. Wishart and everything changed almost immediately. He thoroughly reviewed my case and sat down with me and my Wife and really got to know the intimate details of my situation. It wasn’t long and everything was back on track. I was getting regular progress reports as to where my case stood. If something was required by the court or if there was paperwork that needed to be filed or submitted I was informed and followed up with to make sure everything was in order. I always know what’s going on and if I have any questions or concerns there is always someone there to help me. If I need to speak directly to Mr. Wishart he always makes time for me.
My most recent experience with Mr. Wishart was in court. I have never been to court before so to say the least this was a very unnerving situation. I’m not going to go into gritty details but I will say that Mr. Wishart was by my side the entire time. He thoroughly explained every detail about what was going on and what our best course of action was at every turn. He made sure that I was strongly represented and worked out a deal with opposing counsel that was absolutely brilliant and more than fair to both parties. I cannot speak highly enough of Brett Wishart. He has taken an absolute nightmare of a case and is turning everything around. He is step-by-step seeing me and my family through this, all the while making sure everyone involved is taken care of and treated more than fairly. You can’t ask for anything more in a family law attorney.
Brett Wishart and his team are an amazing group of people and I am truly thankful I found him.
It’s never easy being in a position where you’ll need to go to a lawyer. Especially regarding family law. However, Brett and his staff have delivered beyond any review or words can express. His knowledge, tact, character and undeniable ability to perform and deliver is beyond stellar. Infinitly grateful.
Brett represented us in family court and delivered. Thank you for your outstanding service once again.
I am so thankful that I found Brett. Right through the gate he took control of the situation. He always answered my calls or called me back right away. His staff was super friendly and I always felt as though my opinion mattered to them. Finding a good lawyer that will put up a good fight for you can be so difficult. Let me make it easy for you. Brett Wishart is as good as it gets. Thanks again Brett; God bless you!
I strongly recommend Mr. Brett Whishart if you want the best representation available out there. If you do not want any regrets and to be left wondering whether you’ve
made the right choice; well then you have to go with Mr. Brett Wishart. Out of all the lawyers I was able to meet with, Brett was the most impressive, professional, and knowledgeable in family law matters.
During my first court appearance with Mr. Wishart, I was able to see how confident and sharp he was in the court-room. Brett carries himself in a vary professional manner and is always prepared for everything and anything. I was able to witness several attorneys present their cases and was able to see why Brett is one of the top family law attorneys in Orange County and is well respected in his field.
One of the most important things about Brett is that he is honest and truly cares about his clients, which is a rarity when you hare about lawyers. Brett has a great track record and was able to overcome my previous lawyer’s blunders.
Needless to say, I have been very pleased with Mr. Wishart’s representation and because of him we were able to come to an agreement with the opposing party in my case.
Mr. Wishart along with his legal assistant Yolie have been instrumental in building my case and in keeping me informed every step of the way during this tough period in my life. I know that should I need Mr. Wishart’s representation again, I will not hesitate to call again
Practical and Effective! Not only are they great lawyers but they have taken my case as if it were their own and have never left my side, even during holidays, weekends and weeknights… at anytime, they were always available.
They have even gone out of their way to check on me and make sure I was alright. I don’t have words to thank them enough for everything they have done. I am extremely grateful for the both of them.
For billing, Brett’s staff kept me up to date with detailed bills so I always knew where I stood.
Brett was patient with me , very professional and thorough and was able to make me feel at ease and well taken care of. He really gave me the serenity I needed in one of the hardest ordeals I’ve ever had to deal with. He wasn’t fighting just for me he was fighting for my two girls! He negotiated and renegotiated to make sure that my settlement was fair and also most importantly best for my two young daughters.
He helped me understand the process, the time frames involved, he helped me see “the big picture” and all of a sudden my problems seemed possible to overcome. I’m so grateful for their honesty and help!
My husband was searching for a local attorney to handle his custody case and after sifting through a few different ones, he fortunately found Brett. During our initial consultation with Brett he set realistic expectations for what the outcome may be and now that we are a year and half into the battle and coming to an end, he has by far surpassed those expectations. Throughout this entire process Brett and Holly have been extremely helpful, responsive, efficient and proactive. We never felt as though we were pushed in a corner by the opposing council and on the defense, but rather always one step ahead. As emotions ran high and frustrating situations arose, Brett was always the calming force for my husband and instantly put his mind at ease. I would HIGHLY recommend Brett and his firm if you’re facing the family court system.
I was close to giving in and giving up on my divorce when I hired Brett. I fought for years for visitation rights and fair child support. I was very down and thought the fight would never end, as my finances were slowly being drained by my ex wife and lawyer fees.
Within months of hiring Brett my divorce was finished and I got very close to what I had wanted and felt was fair. I’m grateful to him and have respect for the way he works.
My fiancé struggled to end a terrible divorce. His ex wanted everything and to give him nothing. He spent the first 2 1/2 years with a lawyer telling him just to give her everything and another taking every chance he could to bill him and kept important information from him. This led to no resolution and only causing a very emotional and frustrating time for us.
I found Brett on Avvo and my fiancé hired him immediately. 6 months later the divorce is done and my fiancé got very close to what he wanted. Brett was straight forward, honest and kept on top of things. If I could give anyone advise going through a divorce, get a good lawyer! Save yourself the time, stress and emotional ride, hire Brett! We are also confidant in the future dealing with his ex, knowing Brett is a phone call away.
Just recently wrapped up my divorce and visitation/custody agreements with Law office of Brett R. Wishart. I could not have asked for a better person to represent my son’s and my best interest. Brett was a great listener and gave me honest feedback when I was being stubborn or unrealistic. He stressed all along that my whole family would be better off not have a stranger (Judge) decide my future visitation with my son, just because you never know what may happen when stepping in front of a judge. I trusted in Brett that he would get everything I wanted and deserved as a father. I was wrong I think I only got 99% of what I wanted. LOL. Seriously I got everything that I went in wanting and I couldn’t have been happier. In the end, Brett was able to convince my Ex and her attorney that what I was wanting and asking for was in the best interest of son and was fair for both parents. I’m happy to say that today my Ex and I are friendly to each other and going into this divorce battle I would not have thought that was possible. From the bottom of my heart Brett, Thank You. In the future I hope I never have to see you again BUT if the need arises that I need a family attorney. Undoubtedly you will be the first person I call.
I’ve never been divorced but have done business with Brett in many other ways. The guy’s philosophy on marriage and divorce is as good as it gets. He’s not your standard divorce attorney and he genuinely loves to help people. He’s looking for the best outcome for everyone involved. Just a good all around guy!
So when my divorce began I felt like my world was falling apart and I dreaded the idea of even shopping around for a divorce attorney. I’m one of those people that hates going to the doctor or the dentist, and finding an attorney felt like it was going to be just as painful. I spoke with quite a few attorney’s before I found Brett Wishart. While there wasn’t anything really wrong with any of the ones I found, I just wasn’t feeling any confidence in the ones I spoke with. But when I spoke with Brett on the phone for the first time, I immediately felt at ease both in the way he made me feel like everything was going to be alright and confidence in his knowledge and experience. He made me feel like he really wanted to help me come out of this with my best interests in mind. I knew right away that he was going to take care of things as much as I needed him to. When I met him in person there was no doubt in my mind that he was the one that I wanted to handle my case.
He’s always responsive whether I emailed him or called and he was even there for me during some pretty bad situations when I needed his guidance more than anything. Whenever I had questions, regardless of how simple or complex, he had the answers I needed and he was able to help me keep my head in a few moments where I wasn’t sure how I was going to cope or get through it all. He and Holly were very thorough in making sure they knew everything that was going on and it made me feel like I had the best experts in the field at my back. Or in some instances leading the way.
If you are looking for someone that is going to take care of you and help you out, I would highly recommend Brett Wishart. I can’t tell you enough how working with him helped me get through my divorce and not feeling like I was alone. If you are shopping around for help, then you should go no further. Brett Wishart is the only person that you need on your side.
Brett Wishart is an outstanding attorney. As a busy mom of 3 boys I didn’t have a clue where to begin when my husband served me with divorce papers. It was one of the most intimidating places to be not knowing where to go to be able to secure my boys future. Brett took over my case after almost 3 years of nothing getting done. He didn’t treat me like a number and handled my ex with class and dignity as to not drag this on even further. It was a more complicated case as my ex owns his own business. Brett knew exactly what to do and how to handle this situation with the skill and persuasiveness to push this along. There were many obstacles that came up, but because of Brett’s legal expertise, was able to handle them and give me peace of mind. Priceless!! His approach in court was refined and logical. I left court thanking God I hired Brett as this will make a difference for the rest of my and my boys lives. Most of all, you will not find a more honest, ethical attorney to represent and work with you. I highly recommend you calling Brett Wishart, you will be glad you did!!
Brett Wishart is hands down the best attorney in Orange County. I had met with several in the area and had initially retained a lesser known attorney. That was the biggest mistake ever and I thank God (and my sister!) everyday for finding him. Brett changed everything for me. He understood my concerns as a mother since I have two young children (1.5 yrs and 2.5 yrs old). He is a family man and you couldn’t get a more experienced, strategic attorney. FYI- He is featured on the cover of Attorney Journal as attorney of the month. It goes without saying that he’s the best out there.
My case is ongoing, but now with Brett on my side, I can sleep at night knowing my kids and I will be protected.
I am coming out of an abusive marriage and with Brett being so understanding, reassuring and calm, it made this whole process easier. He’s trustworthy, with a lot of experience and very good in court! If you are thinking of divorce, or going through one you would be wise to retain an attorney like Brett. You definitely don’t want Brett to be on your ex-spouse’s side!
Brett and Holly went way beyond exceeding my expectations. In a time where I needed honest guidance , Brett really took the time to hear my concerns and express his advise with the long term well being of my children in mind. His law office truly gives you the peace of mind to focus on your daily life, knowing that he will guide me through the highly stressful processes of a divorce. Without his representation, I wouldn’t be in the happy place in life that I am right now. To put it simply, Brett is truly one of the best attorneys in the industry. Thank you Brett & Holly !
Brett Wishart smart, professional, and has many years of experience. He is always prepared, always focused on the case, and returns calls/emails promptly.
It is very very important to retain a experienced, savvy, and ethical, and trustworthy attorney during a divorce process, even more so because of my 1 year old granddaughter and 2 year old grandson. We are from a traditional Hindu family, and have no experience with divorce, but feel truly confident with Brett Wishart. He is understanding of the family/cultural values, thorough in his explanations of the law, and is a kind compassionate family man. Mr. Wishart is a true gentleman and you would be smart to retain him as soon as you know divorce is going to happen. Without a good attorney on your side, you will regret for years. We are fortunate to have Mr. Wishart helping us and would give him 10 stars if I could.
I had originally retained different counsel for my divorce. After 4 months of no progress and poor communication with their office, i reached out to Brett.
Brett took my case and was very thorough explaining everything to me. Brett and Holly kept me up to date on the progress all the way through. I never once had to reach out to them for an update.
Brett is very knowledgeable and skillful at what he does. He pushed forward to move my case along.
I was ready to take my case to trial but because of Brett’s expertise and negotiating skills, we were able to settle in mediation.
Thank you Brett – you did an outstanding job!
Brett and Holly did a great job for me. From the start, I felt immediately like I could stop worrying about the outcome and stop spending time and energy on trying to solve it myself.
My situation had the potential to get pretty complicated, and Brett set my expectations of costs based on the realistic worst case scenario. Fortunately Brett was able to gain the cooperation of my former spouse to comply with her obligations, and the costs to resolve everything were very reasonable.
Everything Brett said he would do, he did, right on time. Holly kept me up to date on progress, and I never once had to reach out and say “what’s happening now? what’s happening next?” I always knew.
Thanks for a successful outcome!
One of the best things I can say about Brett was that he was very patient and nice!! Always explained to me everything, every step of the way of what was happening and let me ask as many questions as I wanted. Was very professional and polite in court and on time whenever we meet. Return my calls in a timely manner. And one of the best quality’s was he was on top of the case and knew his facts. When all seemed as if it was bleak, he was calm. And assured me everything would be fine, in the end he was right and we prevailed. When having a huge storm in your life and you need someone in your corner. Brett is the one to call on for help. Again thanks some much Brett for your help!!
Professional, polite, knowledgeable, punctual, and well prepared. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Wishart and his firm without any reservations.
Brett Wishart has been helping me with a child support case and has been extremely helpful. Brett has directed me in the appropriate actions I need to take that would bring about the greatest positive outcome. I highly recommend Brett Wishart for your legal needs. He’s a professional and very good at what he does. He’s the first guy I will call if I need any legal advice or representation! Thank you, Brett!!!
I found Brett Wishart halfway through a very tough divorce/custody battle. He is very knowledgable and was an excellent litigator in the courtroom. As a family man, he truly understands what’s in the best interests of your children, whether you’re the father or the mother. And can be a bulldog when you need him to be. I am forever grateful for his expertise and assistance with my custody case. He goes above and beyond for you and I highly recommend him for your family legal needs.
I used Brett for my divorce and have found him to be very helpful and professional. I found that Brett was able to answer all my questions and was able to satisfy my needs in the divorce. I would recommend him to anyone who needs legal services.
It is with great pleasure that I HIGHLY recommend Mr. Brett Wishart. Brett accepted my case regarding custody and visitation years after my “amicable” divorce that had taken place without any attorney involvement. After my divorce I became a legal secretary myself (not for Brett or anyone within his firm,) and I now know the importance of good legal representation.
Regardless of my knowledge of Family Law and how the system works, my own case made me just as emotional and short sighted as anyone dealing with the sensitivity of the well being of their children. Brett not only comforted my anxiety but made sure to keep me on track. Most clients want a counselor/attorney but only desire to pay for one of them. It takes a well rounded and ethical attorney (person) to be able to give comfort without exploiting the “by the hour” fee that can be abused by some. Brett (and his staff) are amazing at making a client feel heard at the same time that they keep them on track of the task at hand. I have no doubt that my legal fees would have been twice as much had I been allowed to “vent” more than I did. And again, I always felt heard and comforted.
My case resulted in a full 730 evaluation. Brett was AMAZING in his guidance of the entire process. I am convinced that if it hadn’t been for his strong suggestion for me to forego the opposing side’s offer to split costs in favor of their evaluator and instead pay 100% to be able to choose Brett’s suggested evaluator, that my case would not have ended in my children’s best interest. Sometimes you must lose a battle to win the war and win the war my kids did! I owe my kids’ childhood to Brett and to the evaluator that he chose.
Let’s face it, no one wants to be in a position to hire an attorney. Knowing what I now know, I would NEVER represent myself in court even with my legal background. I know that many feel that legal fees are astronomically high and begrudgingly hand over the retainer and then reluctantly agree to their attorney’s suggestions because of fees. People get a sense of entitlement because their feelings of being “wronged” somehow equate in their mind that their attorney should be honored to represent them. If whomever reading this comes away with anything from someone who has gone before you, let it be these three things:
1. Your emotional distress and that of every other client is thrust upon your attorney and no amount of money could ever be enough to willing take on someone else’s stresses. That being said, your choice of an attorney is crucial and you would be wise to pick Brett Wishart.
2. You may not like every bit of advise that Brett gives you but it is always in your case’s best interest, you’d be wise to take it. (I cannot make that statement for all attorneys in the world.)
3. Your attorney is only as good as the truths you tell him. He cannot represent you well if you do not represent yourself well to him.
I hope that his has been helpful in your search for the right attorney. I lucked out in finding Brett on my own. Take my advice and stop your search because you would be foolish to not retain Brett’s services.
Brett Wishart did an outstanding job! Before Brett took over my case, everything was gridlocked, and kept getting delayed. It was frustrating. Once Brett took the lead on my case, he moved very quickly to get things done. He is very strategic, with the ability to see the big picture, and all the moving parts. He is pragmatic, persuasive, and extremely knowledgable. Due to his legal expertise and negotiation skills, I was able to get 100% of my case settled, and I felt great about the results. He is very thorough, efficient, and knows how to structure his arguments well. He is skillful, discerning, and highly competent as an attorney. Thank you Brett!
Having gone through a very painful divorce, I think that it is absolutely necessary to have a skillful attorney. It makes a difference for the rest of your life! I am so glad that Brett was in charge, and knew what he was doing. If you are in the process of getting a divorce, I highly recommend that you hire Brett Wishart to represent you!
Attorney Brett Wishart came highly recommended by a friend, but initially I chose a different OC attorney because I felt I did not need a strong litigator during my marriage dissolution. Two attorneys later, time and money…brought me to retain Mr. Wishart, whom had the experience, professionalism, personable skills, rapport with the Family Law Court staff/judges and confidence to get the job done fairly and firmly (when necessary). I will add that his assistant, at the time, did require follow up and document corrections-she has many years experience, but perhaps just extremely busy-only downfall. His retainer fees are comparable to OC attorney’s, but his value exceeds their services. An absolute respectable attorney!
Brett Wishart is great. He helped me through my divorce and made sure that I received a fair judgement. He is honest and keeps me in the loop every step of the way. He is responsive and very accessible. A few years after my divorce he assisted when child support was reassessed. I recommend Brett to anyone looking for a solid family law attorney.
My divorce was resolved by mediation, but I knew I would need a good attorney on retainer to handle on-going issues with my ex. Brett came highly recommended. I took another attorney friend with me for my first meeting with Brett and we both peppered him with questions and came away feeling that he was a good fit. Since that time, the situation with my ex has completely devolved and Brett has been with me every step of the way. I think I talked more to Brett than my mother during that time! I have had spousal/child support issues, custody/visitation issues, and other matters. When my ex tried to manipulate situations such as visitation schedules or was abusive to me, Brett came out swinging. He clearly knows the law, but he also knows how to work with opposing counsel and judges to achieve beneficial solutions. He is personable, answers calls and emails promptly and his staff (kudos to Holly) is fantastic. No one likes hiring attorneys because it means you have a problem that you can’t resolve yourself; it is stressful and devastating – but hiring Brett helped alleviate that stress and strain. He has my complete endorsement.
Brett Wishart and his staff are the best!! I highly recommend using Brett Wishart because he is hard working and trustworthy. Although my case is on going the results continue to be in our favor. Brett and his staff really know how to get the job done and made me feel at ease with what was going on with my custody case. I was very stressed out about my upcoming court dates and his staff went above and beyond to make sure to answer all of my questions and concerns.
Brett and his staff are amazing. They are trustworthy and honest and have gone above and beyond my expectations. I would highly recommend Brett to anyone!
Mr. Wishart helped me through a time of great crisis in my life. I felt as though my life had been flipped upside down and I had know idea where to begin sorting through the issues I was facing. Mr. Wishart gave me a new perspective on not only my rights as a parent but also hope that being a father did not automatically mean I could not have physical custody of my four boys. Mr. Wishart has a great ability to reason and calm down opposing parties and help them see things in a way that can be mutually beneficial. Overall the process of divorse was definately easier than I thought it would be thanks to the handling of it by Mr. Wishart.
After several consultations with highly recommended attorneys, I hired Brett Wishart to represent me during my divorce proceedings. His extensive knowledge of family law was apparent and from our very first meeting he began to strategize and prepare for my case. Unfortunately, my divorce has been one filled with alleged child abuse which has been problematic from the beginning. At times, I would reach out for reassurance via phone call and Brett has always been there for me, if not immediately, then shortly thereafter. Brett and his staff take the time out to explain complicated family law procedures and instantly update you on any changes in your case. He is a straight shooter, and will not steer you in the wrong direction. Some attorneys understand the law but fall short during trial proceedings, Brett shines during these challenging times. He is aggressive and capable to argue the law during these intense moments. I would highly recommend hiring Brett to advocate for you during what has been known to be one of the most difficult times of your life.
