Got an Uncontested Divorce done with them for $12k...Probably could've gotten in done for like $6k if I didn't have them re-do the Paperwork so much.....We never went to Litigation so that saved a boatload of money.They did great work, and they understood the Law well, and gave me great legal advice.5 Stars!

For a few weeks, I shopped tirelessly for a family attorney to help me as an estranged father in attaining custody. I had paid several firms just for consult, prior to contacting Kermisch & Paletz. I spoke with Jorge, and his level of experience, and confidence regarding my matter is very resolute, with realistic expectations, and academic deliverables.My client experience with onboarding was seamless, and thorough. I am very grateful for their help, and look forward to being a continued client of theirs for years to come.

I hired Daniel Paletz to help me with a particularly ugly divorce and child custody case. Daniel is the epitome of professionalism and skill. He helped me navigate through an extremely stressful process and got me an amazing outcome. I have recommended Daniel to several individuals over the years who report a similar experience to my own. This is the guy you want in your corner!

Daniel Paletz and his firm are the reason I have custody of my sons. I went from zero custody to 100% legal and physical custody and it's because of his work, guidance and especially his faith in me. I "hate" having to type these things about my marriage because I never wanted it to turn out this way and I would have done anything to prevent its dissolution. But things were beyond my ability to control or contain them and when the hurricane demolished my life it was Daniel who got me through it. He was not only there for me as my attorney but he also helped me personally. He made all the difference. It was a long, painful and humbling process but he was there throughout from beginning to end and even beyond--he's still the person I would turn to for legal advice now. His knowledge of the law as it pertains to families is encyclopedic, he is very tech savvy, and his office was extremely thorough with all of the paperwork and evidence. I don't want anyone to have to go through anything like what happened in our lives but if you do, if your life implodes, then I would advise you to seek out Daniel Paletz. He didn't pay me to write this; in fact, I paid him. But the result is that I am getting back on my feet and I have 100% custody. It would have been very easy for the result to have been exactly the opposite without him.

I had a great experience with Kermish & Pelatz. Mary Lu was a quick and brilliant mind and I pretty much just let her do her thing. She communicated with me when she had to and handled matters mostly on her own. We communicated through email and she seemed honest with the time billed. She was truly a professional and I am glad she helped me resolve my divorce. I am happy with the outcome, I appreciate her knowledge and experience and I would seek her out again for legal advice. Thank you Mary Lu. You were a good friend and counsel during the worst year of my life.

I retained William for a spousal support termination case in L.A. last year, and received a ruling in Aug. 2020. My case really screamed precedent, and I was confronting California's archaic laws with long term marriages and the rules regarding how long spouses must endure providing monetary support. My former spouse did not want to support herself or seek a career, post-divorce. Over 5 years after dissolution, she was attempting to defraud me for support in perpetuity as a revenge tactic. California laws seemed to be completely on her side and void any fairness for the paying spouse. The challenges to this case were immense, and things did appear hopeless. William and his team worked diligently to solidify my case with every legal tactic possible and suggested a vocational expert to highlight the ex-spouse's working ability. In the end, I was able to achieve a deferred termination of spousal support. I was thrilled with the ruling, and would definitely recommend William and his team.

I could [and will probably one day] write a book about this firm’s, Daniel Paletz. I was in a high-conflict case, in pursuit of a restraining order, with a little girl that needed safety and stability. Daniel Paletz paid attention to every detail I gave him, and gave me the professional advice my incredibly broken-heart needed. If only I could share every detail.. this man should be indefinitely honored and recognized for the actual miracle of my RO, finalized divorce, and move-away order. He and this firm have stuck by me and my family for years— yes, years! Without the brains, heart, and persistence of this man, I would not be the woman with the freedom I have today. It was a long fight to get my voice back, and here we are with VICTORY.My MOST SINCERE THANK YOU,Kaci Brown

Kermisch & Paletz is an excellent, solid firm that helped me through a tough period of my life. I had a legal issue in California, however I was based in Seattle at the time. They were able to assist me as if I lived locally and made me fell as if I was their only client. Additionally I was budget conscious as well and they worked with me to both fit my financial needs and provide top notch service. They were kind, professional, personable, organized, detail oriented and most of all treated me like family. I was beyond impressed with the knowledge the lawyers had regarding my issue, and their ability to handle it in a timely manner. Everything was explained to me very clearly, and I was kept informed on all issues regarding my case. I would highly recommend them to anyone without any reservations whatsoever!

I was unsure where to find a reliable source to address several legal issues. Fortunately, I was referred to Kermisch & Paletz LLP, even though their main scope is divorce and family law, they were able to assist in my civil litigation. The ethical and empathetic consultation I received from meeting with Mr. Paletz in such a short amount of time was godsent. The team of professionals on staff are clearly dedicated to serving the needs of their clients to the best of their ability.I’ll never go anywhere else. Absolutely will refer to family and friends without question. Thank you for everything

Daniel Paletz exemplifies professional. He is knowledgeable in all areas of family law. He advocates for children and gives 100% to his clients. He is always available to answer any questions a client has and truly knows the law. I would give him, as well as his firm, 10 stars if possible. Once you speak with him, you won’t want to call anyone else.

If I could give this man a 100 star review, I would. Mr. Daniel Paletz was is an outstanding lawyer, and I am incredibly impressed with his knowledge and ability to handle a courtroom. He took on a case that was larger than anyone anticipated with an opposing team that did all they could to get our side to back down. Daniel, with nothing but professionalism, outsmarted and out-lawyered the opposition. He won the case and got our team everything requested. It was a tedious fight, but Mr. Paletz never backed down, never got lazy, and never stopped digging to make sure he had every piece of material needed to prove his client's word. I can not express enough how well this man did his job. While I hope to never have to use his services again, I recommend those of you that are in an unfortunate situation contact him.Grade A man.Please feel free to DM me if you have more questions about him and his firm.
