Michael Reed, a divorce attorney with Ascent Law, managed my divorce case with professionalism and empathy. He patiently listened to my story and then diligently worked to tailor the divorce process in a way that conveyed my wish to treat my now former wife with respect and dignity. Divorce is painful and expensive. It can take you to places which stretch and change who you are. Mr. Reed understands this, and for my case he used empathetic restraint by allowing the process to move at a slower pace which was considerate of my damaged emotional and spiritual sensitivities. I would say, avoid divorce if you can. Search for ways to learn and adapt and change together as a loving couple, as a team. If divorce seems to be the only solution, after you have diligently worked to save your marriage, then I would recommend Michael Reed. He was professional in every way, he was extraordinarily patient, he actually listened, and he sincerely acknowledged my deep pain and my immeasurable loss.
Absolutely recommend! The process was explained clearly and thoroughly. We were nervous but Michael helped to ease the nerves by explains each step before it happened. The team also stayed in contact for all updates and were pleasant to work with.
A little backstory: My daughter had been having some behavioral issues at school. One afternoon I get a call from the principal. She wanted to scream at me about how bad my daughter had been behaving that day. I went down to the school and let her know very clearly that I was not ok with being yelled at by a school administrator. A few days pass and lo and behold, I hear that CPS (or whatever Utah calls it) had been to the school to interview my daughter and my neighbor said they were by the house looking for me while I was at work. My daughter just moved in with me full time last December. I’m new to this and not sure what to do. I googled what to do, I jumped on tiktok, and I even contacted my old attorney. They all yielded the same results, Do not let CPS in your house! Do not answer any questions! This doesn’t feel right. I’m an honest single dad and I’m doing my best. Why can’t I just let them in and answer the questions? The agent reached out and asked if she could come “see the house.” Before I respond to the text I took a chance and just googled family attorneys. I called one of them (Ascent Law) and got Mike L. He was clear that he wasn’t offering me legal advice and that he was not an attorney. He just told me that the best outcome seem to come to those who don’t make it hard for the agent to do their job. He explained that it’s not exactly a fun job to have and some kindness and honesty will go a long way. He said if you have nothing to hide then just let them do their job. I was relieved that I was finally getting advice that agreed with my initial gut feeling of: just be kind, honest, and let them do their job. I responded to the text and set a time for them to come and see the house and talk. The agent came over and we walked through the house. I answered a few questions and we had a pleasant exchange. She offered some parenting resources and actually commended me on the job I was doing as a single dad. To be honest, I kinda wanted to ask her out. She called me a few days later to tell me my case was dropped. :) My experience with the department of human child protection or whatever they’re called was quick and painless. That is completely due to the great advice I was freely given because I called Ascent Law. I HIGHLY recommend Ascent Law!! And don’t get legal advice from TikTok!
