Santiago | July 3, 2020
The experience and information that was given to me was of great value. Very professional and with a personal touch. I greatly appreciate all their help. Thank you
John Law | July 3, 2020
Ryan did a good job especially considering I didn't have an attorney most of my divorce. I would recommend him, but get him onboard at the beginning not the end.
Dan Palmer | July 3, 2020
Simply put, Ryan is outstanding! ! I’ve used his services exclusively for the last 6+ years on multiple custody and visitation cases. After having gone through three less than transparent attorneys before Ryan, it was incredibly refreshing when I found him. He’s courteous, responsive and the utmost professional. Best of all, I feel that I can trust his advice explicitly. A true rarity in this industry! Bottom line: I wouldn’t consider even having a conversation with another attorney!
Catherine Dolan | July 3, 2020
Thank you Jon for helping me with my case and making me feel comfortable during the proceedings. I appreciate the guidance you provided and legal recommendations so that I could result in the best possible outcome for my situation. I would have been very lost without your help!
Hannah Ridinger | July 3, 2020
I could not be happier with The Valley Law Group. My case was handled effectively and efficiently. I am very grateful for Cory Keith and the rest of the group. Thank you!

  • Do I need to bring anything to my consultation?

    Feel free to bring any documents that you would like us to review during your consultation. This can include legal documents filed with the Court, documents you were served with, or documents sent by the Court.

  • How much does it cost to hire an attorney at The Valley Law Group?

    The Valley Law Group prides itself on offering exemplary legal representation that is affordable. In many cases, The Valley Law Group can tailor a custom approach to your legal matter in order to work with most budgets. At your initial consultation, the consulting attorney will need to get a feel for the issues involved in your case, the complexity of your case, the exigency of the issues, what documents need to be filed, what hearings have been scheduled, etc. before providing you with a quote to retain the firm.

  • Does The Valley Law Group have payment plans?

    The Valley Law Group does offer payment plans on a case-by-case basis. An attorney will need to discuss in detail with you the issues involved in your case, the complexity of your case, the timing of your hearings, what documents need to be filed with the Court, etc. to determine if a payment plan can be offered for your particular case.

  • How long will it take to resolve my legal matter?

    Unfortunately, there is no accurate answer to this question. As with any legal matter, the length of your case will depend on a myriad of issues. However, rest assured that The Valley Law Group will work diligently to resolve the issues involved in your case.

  • Do you guarantee results in my case?

    No. No attorney or law firm can guarantee a specific outcome in any legal matter. In fact, it is an ethical violation for an attorney to say so. Nonetheless, there is a reason we are one of the highest-rated family law firms in the Phoenix area. We are results-oriented and have helped thousands of clients all over the state of Arizona secure favorable outcomes in their court cases.
