Dealing with any type of legal matter can be a very stressful time. When I received my DUI there were so many questions to be answered, as this was a very foreign situation for me to be in. I had gone to a couple of other lawyers to get some insight into this matter, and all of them seemed very disinterested in my case (I am sure they see a lot DUI cases) and all got the same type of response, which was very vanilla. A close friend of mine recommended Michael to me, saying that he is one of the best and that he would take great care of me. I am very thankful that my friend did recommend Michael! The first time that I met with Michael, he treated my case as though it was the only one that he was working on. He put my mind at ease with all of the things that were coming at me and walked me through the steps of my case. Everything that he said that he was going to take care of he did and in a very timely manner. He was in constant contact with me, letting me know what he was doing and what I needed to do to get through this process as swiftly as possible. He was able to get most of my charges dropped and a ruling that was better than expected!Lawyers have been given bad names over the years, but Michael was nothing short of amazing! He was took care of all of my legal matters for me when I was lost. I would highly recommend Michael to anyone that needed any legal advice. Thank you again Michael for everythying!

I had been going through the worst time of my life dealing with Social Services in Douglas County with my 3 small children. My religious beliefs and right to prayer were taken away from me and my children. The Department of Social Services in Douglas County terminated my family visits due to our Islamic culture and me saying prayer with my children in Arabic, and now attempting to terminate my parental rights based upon false allegations with no proof thereof. I found Culver Van Der Jagt through prayer and going on the internet and retained his services. Culver is truly on of the hardest working attorney’s that I have ever come across, he and his team at the firm were awesome working with me and my case. Culver worked more with me in a 3 day period than the department of social services did in 2years on m y case. I know that if I could have found and hired Culver Van Der Jagt 2years earlier my children would have been home. We are awaiting closing arguments right now on my case. There is one thing I know for sure, I highly recommend him as a lawyer who knows his arena of law. Thank you Culver and your Team.

It has been two months since my case has been settled. I am thankful every day and will continue to be thankful every day for Jason Marquez, my attorney with Johnson/Marquez. His professionalism, knowledge, persistence at obtaining the needed documents and hard to find crucial information was a constant. For eighteen months he was always accessible to answer any of my questions and to assure me that he was constantly working with my case and made me feel as though I was his only client. When in the courtroom his position was of strength, exact information and knowledge of the case and being fully prepared for the judge and the opposing attorney. At all times he was honest as to what could happen and gave me different scenarios on how the judge may rule. His skills as an attorney were extremely effective as the case can out far better than I expected. I feel very fortunate that he agreed to take my case. All of the staff at Johnson/Marquez are very friendly and knew my name whenever I came to the office. If you are serious about retaining a lawyer, he is the BEST. Carol J

After speaking with several different attorney's I knew Mike was he best choice. Going into my divorce case I had the thought that you get what you pay for, so I was looking for the most expensive lawyer I could find, until I met Mike. I immediately knew he was the one, from his informal, casual style, and his ability to make me immediately feel comfortable around him. He doesn't waste time or money on the unnecessary, and works fast and efficient to get the job done. I never felt out of the loop, and always knew what was going on. In the end I got everything I wanted, and then some. Unfortunately, I can't say the same for my ex who did go with the most expensive. He came out with nothing, and paid his attorney 4 times more than I did. I would definitely recommend Mike to any friend or family member, and in fact, have already done so on a few occassions. He is awesome! He still checks in today to make sure things are going okay. What lawyer does that????

Let me first start off by saying Jonathan, who is the owner operator, was not only professional but extremely reliable and discreet like you would not believe. I could literally call him at anytime of the day and he would be there ready, willing, and able to help with the problem that I was having. Originally I had called Corps Elite Investigations because I was planning on proposing to my longtime girlfriend and began seeing some changes with her. What was supposed to be a simple case in his opinion turned out to be a full blow infidelity case. Needless to say things didn't turn out the way I had wanted them to but I learned the truth and Jonathan and his team of professional investigators were with me through the entire process. One of the best decisions I've ever made is going to Corps Elite investigations because the truth that I uncovered with them changed my life.

My wife and I had a delicate infidelity situation with a friend that we found ourselves in the middle of recently. After considering our options we knew we needed more concrete evidence before we made any decisions, had conversations or tried to resolve the situation. So after our research, we decided to hire Jonathan and his team to help us get that needed evidence. We found them to be very prompt and attentive, work hard, offer suggestions and options and keep in constant communication to keep us updated. And they were able to secure both pictures, videos and eyewitness evidence that helped us present our story with more than just suspicions or a hunch. We never had the need to hire a private investigation team before but when we needed to we are glad we hired Corps Elite Investigations!

Johnson Marquez is a great team of individuals who are knowledgeable and friendly. I found them through a mutual friend when my wife and I needed a divorce. We had shared an apartment together and I realized she was cheating. There were also too many trust issues. When I confronted her about the cheating with the text messages I found that proved it, we got into a huge fight and she left. Then a few days later she moved out even though both our names were on the lease and it wasn't finished. I was left with all the bills of the apartment. Johnson Marquez helped me settle my divorce and also won me the money I deserved for the apartment and bills issue. I highly recommend this law group.

I must say that proceeding to go through a divorce was probably the hardest decision I have made in my life. At the beginning, I didn’t know if I was ever going to make it through. It seemed like everything in my life was a giant black hole. I found Johnson Marquez legal group when I was searching for a family law firm online. Since the first meeting, Attorney Marquez led me through the legal proceedings and created an absolutely positive environment for me. Finally the case was brought to an end, and with his help, I survived and everything worked out in my favor. I encourage anyone going through a divorce to seek his help.

Tips & Advices
Each state has different mandates on how child support is determined. But there are some basic factors that underline how costs are determined in each state, including:
  • Income level of parent that needs to pay support (in the case of joint custody, the costs are determined by income of each party and the percentage of time the child spends with each parent)
  • Financial needs of child
  • Child’s standard of living before the divorce occurred
This is a divorce in which one party does not have to prove that the other’s actions lead to a deterioration of the marriage. The reason for divorce is listed as "irreconcilable differences" or an "irreparable breakdown of the marriage,” meaning the marriage was no longer working and could not be repaired.
Family law attorneys are helpful in cases where the two parties are not on amicable terms. The lawyers can act as intermediaries between the two parties and help them come to any settlement agreements, however long that may take. Lawyers can also help parties navigate tricky state laws regarding settlement agreements and child custody, thus expediting the process.
A contested divorce is one in which the parties cannot agree on either the necessity of the divorce as a whole, or how assets (money, property, etc.) and child custody should be split between them in the divorce. An uncontested divorce is when the parties are in agreement on how assets and child custody will be split between them. These divorces can sometimes be handled without hiring a lawyer.
It is possible for a couple to get a divorce without hiring a family law attorney. If the two parties are in agreement on how finances, child custody, properties, etc., will be split, then they can file the necessary court documents themselves and avoid the services of a lawyer.
