TESTIMONIALS

Excellent All Around

"After several awful experiences with prior counsel Mr. Isles was a breath of fresh air. He was upfront and open about what the expectations should be, and did not lead us on to expect more than was legally permissible, he was not trying to be sneaky - which was our experience with former lawyers. He keeps you informed along the way and asks questions as they arise so that by the date of hearing he is fully prepared, as well as keeping us fully educated and therefore prepared as well. Finally there was a positive experience for us in the courtroom, under his representation. He takes his obligation to protect the best interests of his clients seriously and that really showed. I wish he was the first attorney we had hired in the beginning!! I would and will recommend Mr. Isles to anyone in the area in need of a family law attorney. Divorce Final- Freedom Papers in Hand"

Very Grateful, Outstanding Attorney

"Richard Isles is the Best Attorney in all of Riverside County. You will not find better representation. He has a very aggressive approach to your case. You definitely want this attorney on your side. I've had this attorney for 2 years. He is very understanding of my difficult financial situation. He has been more then accommodating by allowing me to make payments and not deserting me in the middle of my case. He has gotten me everything I've asked for in court and so much more. His staff is very pleasant to work with and very informative. I would definitely recommend Richard Isles to anyone who needs aggressive representation. Domestic violence/Child custody "

By Far Very Impressed!

"I came to Mr. Isles in desperate need of an attorney as my daughters father had sole legal custody, I was being harassed by cps drug test after drug test, monitored visits, no legal rights to my daughter and I had to reach for help not to mention I was nothing close to what father had been accusing me of he was making up lies to the court, my daughter was in need of her mom. I was on supervised visits and constant cps visits with no legal custody I felt as if the system was making me out to look like something I was not and there was no end to this. I hired Mr. Isles and I have to say I walked out of that court room with joint-legal and my supervised visits were no more. I was a happy mom one step closer, he was an excellent listener, aggressive and very impressive, Mr. Isles knows his stuff and knows exactly what to say I was proud to have him by my side I'm so thankful for Mr. Isles he helped me get custody back. Although my case is still continuing I'm one step closer and I trust Mr. Isles will get me what I want and deserve. Best attorney I've ever hired hands down! If you're looking for the best Richard K. Isles is the one." I feel a relief, like something has lifted off my shoulders" those were my exact words to Mr. Isles leaving the court room. One step closer... Thank you, Mr. Isles."

An Expert

"I was searching for a family law attorney and came upon the many reviews here. My situation was very similar relating to child custody that another person posted. It was apparent to me that this was the right lawyer for my case. Having already spent the cost of a new car in attorneys fees with a prior law firm in Corona, I knew that this would be my last attempt to get aggressive legal counsel. I made the right choice hiring Richard Isles. Richard and one of his associate attorneys both worked on the case and got me the orders that I should have obtained over a year ago. I only regret not hiring them from the beginning."

Richard and his staff were great...

"My wife and I have not been right for a couple of years. I finally told her that I have rights as a parent, she was very upset and we argued. She called the police and a week later I found myself removed from my children and home/office. I was facing a domestic violence restraining order. My wife of over 20 years was falsely accusing me of threatening her and threatening to take the kids out of the country. I hired Richard Isles's office. Richard and his staff were great at keeping me informed and calm. I met with Richard several times before trial and he seemed very knowledgeable. He diligently went over with me how it would most likely be at trial. The trial day came and Richard was amazing. The trial went just like he said. He was brilliant! I am now back in my home/office and taking my kids to school day to day. I am so pleased with Richard and his staff that I have hired them to represent me in my upcoming divorce. Thank You Richard!"

Great divorce attorney; knows what they're doing!

"Very aggressive and knowledgeable. Every single court appearance and hearing was decided in my favor. Office staff was always very helpful and responsive to any issues that I brought up. I would highly recommend this lawyer to anyone!"
Yvette

Absolutely Recommend!!

"I would like to say that the Law Offices of Richard Isles has been a tremendous help during this difficult time. They provided guidance through my entire divorce process. I was always able to get a hold of someone in the office whenever I had questions or concerns. They were patient and kind which was a relief. After 29 yrs of marriage this experience was nothing that I was prepared to deal with at the age of 70 but they got me through it. I would recommend their caring staff to anyone that would have to face this in their life. Thank you all again for everything that you have done for me."

Family law review

"Mr. Isles office was very receptive and empathetic to my situation during my initial call for advice. After meeting with Mr. Isles for the first time I was confident that I had made the right decision. Most offices have multiple attorneys that represent the firm but Mr. isles agreed to represent me himself without hesitation. Mr. Isles was both punctual and professional in addition to being considerate and responsive with all of my requests. I would highly recommend Mr. Isles to any potential client in need of a family law attorney. "

Only the Best

"If only the best is what you want, then you want Richard Isles. He is extremely intelligent, knows the law, knows all the right moves, knows the weaknesses of his opponent and yet has no visible weakness of his own. I am the CEO of a considerably large corporation. Over the past 30 years I have had a multitude of experiences with attorneys on both sides of the fence. I chose Richard to represent my case in a divorce proceeding. That was one of the best legal decisions I ever made. Using Richard was like using an atomic bomb in a knife fight. You couldn't be in better hands. He is passionate about his work, diligent to a fault, well versed beyond words, and articulate to the point of perfection. He will also keep you very informed and aware of your situations. He will let you know what can go wrong and how to prepare and he will attack the opponent like a hungry dog in a meat house. As I originally stated "he is the best". The absolute best. And I have 30 years of business experience to back up that statement of fact. There is also icing for the cake. His staff is also superior to any other support team you will encounter.The Isles law firm is a well-oiled machine."

It made the court clerk's job easier!

"I took court papers to the courthouse to obtain a fee waiver which Melissa at attorney Isles office prepared on my behalf. The court clerk asked who completed the legal forms and I told her that my lawyers office did. The clerk told me they were prepared perfectly and told me to thank Melissa the Certified Paralegal at attorney Richard Isles' office for doing such a great job on the forms. She rarely sees the forms completed right so it was a pleasant change to see a Paralegal who knew how to properly complete the forms. It made the court clerk's job easier!"

Thank you for your efforts. It paid off!

"Attorney Richard Isles was my lawyer in a guardianship of my grandson. We went to Court on the permanent guardianship with others who were wanting guardianship as well. Mr. Isles was my knight in shining armor. He outlined every reason why I should have guardianship of my grandchild. He argued my case better than I could have ever attempted, yet stayed calm and assertive at the same time. The case is finished and I am now the legal guardian of my wonderful grandson. Thank you for your efforts. It paid off!"

I knew immediately that Isles was the lawyer I needed.

"I was in Riverside Family Law Court with my lawyer who wasn't getting my child support case moving. My lawyer repeatedly wanted the court to continue the hearings. One day I went into the court and saw attorney Richard Isles before the judge and realized he knew the laws, and was actually representing his client in front of the Judge (the way I was wishing my lawyer would act) stating case laws, and aggressively stating the facts before the judge. After his hearing I asked him for a business card . I went into his office the same day. I knew immediately that Isles was the lawyer I needed. We have been back to court and this case is finally getting to the end. My child support is now lowered, I have new custody orders for my son that I needed all along and my finances are getting back on track again!"

Thank you for your time and devotion to my case.

"First off I would really like to thank you for your time and devotion to my case. I really appreciate your professionalism and also that of your staff. Connie Billings is the best by the way. I really appreciated her assistance and she is one of the reasons I would hire your firm again in the future!"

I have the best counsel.

"On behalf of my family and myself I want to thank you for all the help you have given me. After my life was so drastically changed from one moment to the next it was a great relief to have you hold my hand and walk me through a difficult situation. One cannot express the sad feeling after being hurt, and scared, just not knowing where or who to turn to. I was relieved after you became involved and knew I was in great hands. I am sure your jaws must have dropped a few times when I asked my questions, but you always had patience, answers and suggestions for me. You made this whole upset in my life so much easier to deal with and it is thanks to your expertise and experience that I can look back now and say: A GREAT BIG THANK YOU AND EVERYONE SHOULD BE AS LUCKY AS I BECAUSE I HAVE THE BEST COUNSEL!!!!"

I appreciate all that you and your staff did."Thank you very much for representing me and my legal interests this past year. I appreciate all that you, and your staff did, in obtaining a successful outcome for me. Thanks again for a job well done."

I can definitely provide this lawyer with a glowing review.

"When I first learned that I was facing false allegations and statements that were made towards me by Child Protective Services I didn't think that I would need an attorney. Why should I, I didn't do anything wrong, right? Well that's what I thought as well, but when it looked as though I was being railroaded, my wife and I knew we better make sure we have someone on our side. That is where Attorney Richard Isles came into our lives. Mr. Isles played a pivotal role in not only the dismissal of these false allegations, but also made sure they cleared my name, and assisted us with regaining absolute full custody of our kids again. Our family has never been happier. Now I can't speak for everyone but in my opinion and based on my experience, Mr. Isles was not only worth every red cent we paid for the retainer, but the man himself is worth his weight in gold. I highly recommend his services if you find yourself in need of an attorney. There would be no way for us to ever thank him enough for what he did to make things right again for us."

Perry Mason could not have done a better job

"Last week was an important step to resolving the issues for my children . A lot of evidence stands in front of the judge. Many things have been proven now. The way in which you closed it out last week was incredible. There is no better way it could have been put forth to the judge. I was and will always be impressed and appreciative by that. For me it's a life time debt of appreciation. Although it may be early to say, I have a sense of closure from that. This case and multiple cases have been of course draining for me and I am sure for you and your staff. It seems never ending. I know it will end. I appreciate the way you and your staff have been handling this throughout. I think with the evidence that has been presented, 'Perry Mason' would not have done a better job last Thursday. The judge must now clearly see what is happening to my children. Not only has the judge seen evidence, I believe he also witnessed some of it during court. I have to say at this point, no matter the outcome of what the judge rules, I am in deep appreciation of what you have done for me and to protect me and my children since we have first met. I of course need my children to be protected from the continuous abuse and I hope the best for my ex wife. Interestingly enough, after all she has done to me and my children, I still forgive her and wish her well. Again Richard, Thank you. God Bless you, and your staff. Thank you for putting up with me. Kindly, Philipe."

Outstanding Law Office

"I was going through a separation/divorce and contacted the office of Richard K. Isles. They were nothing but amazing. Very supportive in all matters and going through the court process as we know is very nerve racking but I was taken care throughout all. I dealt with an outstanding paralegal named Leigh and I cannot thank her enough for all her hard work, her kind words and most of all her support throughout this process."

If you haven't hired Richard Isles to represent you, stop what you're doing immediately and HIRE THEM!

"I retained Richard K. Isles to represent me, on behalf of my Brother – whom was disabled from two Grand Mal Seizures – in his divorce proceeding. My Brother was married for over 28 years to his Wife and had two adult children, both of whom were completely useless and were single handedly contributing to the decline of his health, his property and his finances. Sadly, my Brother died more than a year into our efforts during the divorce, due to several medical complications – but I still needed and wanted justice for him. His dying wish was to make sure that his soon to be ex-Wife and his neglectful, careless and disrespectful Sons would NOT receive the inheritance that our parents had left us just a few years before. This case was extremely complicated, complex and required many hours of intricate briefings, discoveries and even expert/forensic specialists to divulge the complete financial mess. From the sale of the home, to the jointly acquired assets and even my Brothers monies (401k, Bank Accounts, Credit Cards, Inheritance, etc.) His Sons and Wife had trashed property in their home; taken out Credit Cards in his name and maxed them out or had taken Cash Advances on them, hid funds in several banks and even took Vacations without his knowledge with his Wife's lover. (This took extremely talented people over a year to find all the places that my Brothers Then-Wife had moved and hidden these funds.) But they did it! They found EVERY SINGLE CENT she tried to lie about and scam him out of. Obviously, this was an incredibly nasty split which came about only after my Brother became too ill and disabled to work anymore. (He was always the bread winner and his Wife never uttered a word about "divorce" prior to his decline in health.)"

"I hired Richard Isles after meeting with him at his office. I knew that he was HANDS DOWN the BEST Attorney in Riverside County. After paying the retainer, he made sure that we understood the road that we would encounter on this journey. Initially, he had assistance from another Attorney in his Practice, that we didn't care for. He immediately reassigned us and removed the unwanted Attorney from his practice, altogether. Really reassuring us that he is fighting for US and CARES about our family and my very disabled, displaced Brother. When Richard Isles introduced us to Denise Motroni, she then began assisting us through all the many difficult processes over the next year and a half. Denise is a POWERHOUSE! She's prepared for anything, extremely detailed, really listens and the best part… THEY NEVER SEE HER COMING! She never let us down! Always outshines the council and has a memory that you wouldn't believe. Richard Isles and his entire Practice is the ONLY reason that my Brother (even in death) has justice today. I don't think that another Attorney in Riverside County could have systematically fought for him, the way they did. If I had to give an example of comparison to make you understand how great they really are, it would be like the difference between a Volkswagen and a Ferrari. There is NO COMPARISON. My Brother didn't deserve what his ungrateful Sons and lying, cheating and thieving ex-Wife had done to him. We knew that he wanted to be heard, understood and responded to – whenever we needed to have immediate communication. I needed them to be responsive, keep me informed, be available, return my emails and calls and to answer my difficult questions as quickly and as honestly as they did. Richard Isles and his Practice Attorneys, including the entire Staff, did just that! They upheld each one of my requests. Every single member of his Staff made me feel like they had compassion for my situation and for my Brother. Their sense of urgency in responding / reacting to my needs – were always appreciated. I credit this victory to Richard Isles and Denise Motroni for not just sitting back and "representing" me on behalf of my Brother – but for fighting for true justice for him."

Great Attorney, Great firm!

"Mr. Isles helped me when i was going through a very difficult time dealing with a custody battle over my son. I did not know what to expect and did not know what the outcome would be. He and his firm kept me well informed and did an excellent job on my case! I will and have already recommended him as a great attorney!"

Excellent Attorney 5.0 stars

He is very knowledgable with the local courts and he knows the law well. He is trustworthy and will fight for you. He is quick on his feet in the court room.

I hired an exceptional attorney 5.0 stars

"Mr. Isles is an exceptional attorney, whom is always prepared. He argued my case against my wife to clearly my financial benefit. He knows the law and does not cave in just because it gets difficult. He saved me a ton of money in the end. Well worth it. I also used him to do my son's DUI case back in 2010 which he got my son off using the technicalities against the police who arrested him. At that time I did not know he did family law too. Thanks Richard for all your help."

MAGIC 5.0 stars

"Mr. Isles is a power player and heavy hitter in Riverside. He has the ability to shut down opposing counsels and make them appear to not understand the law in California. He is honest and frank about your options and ensures you understand the processes involved in the courtroom and beyond. Most of my close friends, family, and I thought my children were going to be able to leave the state because I am in the military. My spouse was attempting to leave the state permanently which would not allow me to have a meaningful relationship with them. Mr. Isles performed "magic" in the courtroom and was able to keep my children within the state so I can continue to having a strong relationship. Thank you Mr. Isles."

Thank you!

MR. ISLES IS PROFESIONAL, ASSERTIVE, ENGAGING AND ADAPTIVE TO YOUR SITUATION. 5.0 stars

"I have never encountered an office so professional yet sensitive to your individual situation. My case is complicated by my medical conditions and ex-husband's profession. He sees each case individually. Every person he works with is amazing. It puts my mind at ease knowing they are representing me. I feel that my kids and i are safer with each step they complete. Unlike other attorneys, his firm has not been fazed by the quick talking and underhanded opposing counsel. My kids and i have a voice, thank you."

Hired twice and will continue 5.0 stars

"I first came to the office for a CPS case I had with my daughter. They were the only law office I was able to research that listed CPS experience. We had a few consultations elsewhere but when I sat down with Denise I knew she was the one. She gave me direction right away to start preparing for court. She made sure I got more visits, and let the judge know that CPS was only providing me the minimum amount of visits. Denise also gave me great advise on attending addition classes. Thanks to Richard Isles law office I got my daughter back within 3 months. Durning the CPS case I also had a custody hearing for my son. The lawyer I hired before I found Richard Isles office was horrible and I lost my legal rights. I hired Richard Isles again to get my supervised visits removed and get joint legal and physical custody. The wording explaining my situation was beautiful written. My ex said in mediation last time that a request for supervised visits would be asked for as Long as possible. Denise made sure I got mediation separate and prepped me very well. I got supervised visits dropped, joint legal/physical and more time during summer. I will never go anywhere else. They fought with me every step of the way."

Great Military Divorce Lawyer 5.0 stars

"This is a first rate law firm which handled my unique case in a professional matter. The staff was very sensitive to my specific situation (being stationed abroad with a case in California). The attorneys knew military divorce to its fullest. In fact Richard Isles was a veteran of the Navy. They were diligent in responding to my emails quickly and informatively due to no telephone communications available on my end at the time. Their prices were reasonable as well."

"It can be difficult when you are overseas relying on a law firm far away, yet I was provided, without delay, responsive strategic lawyering. I was confident from the start that my divorce was in good hands after my first phone consultation, then a follow up email from them. From that point on it was evident that my fathers’ rights would be protected and upheld in the court of law, even in my absence. In the end, I felt the law office provided professional service and would recommend them to anyone in the armed forces going through divorce or custody issues."

5.0 stars

"Words can’t express my happiness, for years I’ve had trouble trying to get custody of my son. I was told by multiple lawyers that they wouldn’t take my case because I had no chance. Then I came across Denise Matroni, she was truly heaven sent. She took my case and took all my worries away. Always kept me up to date with my case and was superb in court! I am truly truly grateful for this law firm! Thank you!!!"
