Living in another state, but always kept in the loop

We live more than 1,200 miles away. Toby kept us in the loop and is keeping us in the loop on our Legal situation. He has honestly made this process easier by telling us everything that is going on and how things will pan out. I can only imagine how hard it is to keep in touch and go to aperances for us while we are not close enough to do so AND still keep us totally involved in every aspect of the process.

I didn't feel like my attorney and I were on the same page. There was no sense of urgency with him. I don't feel that he was very interested in my case or being my advocate. I was my own advocate. Things were done very last minute. There were multiple instances of communication breakdown which caused me tremendous stress. My concerns were minimally addressed or ignored throughout the process. At the end of the day I got a deal I can live with but if I had to do it all again I would have chosen a different attorney.

She helped me think and reason through what I needed, and how to deal with my difficult situation clearly. She was firm in negotiation, but not antagonistic and got results.

Great experience, I would recommend to anyone

It was nice to work with a law firm that deals only with family law. Not having to worry about every papercopy, every call, every email and having to worry about my retainer fee put my mind at ease. I have been recommended and had to deal with lawyers that focus on other areas of law and none of them made me feel as comfortable about my case as attorney Navarrette did. She was always very quick to respond to calls or email, day or night. If I ever need anything again I will not hesitate to contact attorney Navarrette again.

Love the fixed price model, great communication

Thank you for reaching out! So far, I am extremely happy with my decision to leave the firm I was with and go with Sterling! My attorney through Sterling is Derek Allen, and I couldn't be more pleased with the service he is providing. He stays in great communication, and is completely on the same page as far as how I want to approach my very messing and contested divorce. I also really love the fixed price model! It's really nice that there are no surprises! I really like that, whether I can afford all the stages or not, at least I know what they will cost and won't be constantly blind-sided with addition cost the way I was with my previous attorney. At least with Sterling, I know what could be coming and can try to prepare for additional costs the best I can. I really love the way your firm does business, and will absolutely recommend Sterling to anyone looking for an excellent divorce attorney!

Seemed too Long

I think explaining the process of how a settlement can come together would help. I was under the impression that after the Financial worksheets were sent in, that the two attorneys would actually work together. Since nothing really happened for several months my ex and I decided to come up with our own division of assets and turn it into the attorneys so we could accomplish a simple divorce in 8 months.

Lethargic

My experience involved an attorney that was less than reveling in all the facts.
I have ran my divorce all the way through appeals. It is in that process ommisions were made.
At a hearing my attorney of record admitted he never read the final judgment. Under the five day rule, that pretty much allows the opposing party to alter an in court agreement. Once the judge signs it, and because my attorney offered no objection it was a done deal.
In texting with the attorney post trial, it was reveale…

She did an amazing job

Highly recommended. Divorce is hard enough and trying to do it on your own is even harder. The price was more than fair and the service was excellent. I worked with Attorney Holly Mullin. She was very professional, detailed, and personable. She did an amazing job. All I had to do was get her the information she needed and Attorney Mullin and her team took care of the rest. She was always available if I had questions and communicated openly with me and my spouse through every step of the process. I hope to never have to go through the divorce process again because its very unpleasant but having a good attorney like Holly made it so much easier. Thank you Holly!

I felt a touch and I mean just a tiny bit of disappointment in the fact that the week before the final court date I felt like I was on an island being bombarded with paperwork and illustrations – half of which were variations on final scenarios. I wish I could have had a chance to discuss what they all meant before they were sent to me. This feeling had a lot to do with the fact that Katy had a trial the week before and she needed to focus on that. Not upset – it's an honest reality that happens. As a crazy work schedule funeral director I know exactly how the chaos feels and I am guilty of doing the same – priority is what and who is directly in front of me rather than who is up next week. Divorce sucks and it isn't easy and life goes on after. That was the biggest complaint that was really no ones fault. Katy was super awesome and met with me whenever I felt like I was drowning and needed clarification on issues. I would highly recommend sterling to anyone needing your services. All of the staff that I encountered was awesome. The biggest reason I scored the way I did was the feeling of being alone on a deserted island being smothered by paperwork that to me didn't make much sense because of all the feelings swirling around in the giant pool in my head and a personal love of the number 7…(yes I'm a dork – but it's honestly my lucky number). Lastly – I have to thank you both for everything that you ladies helped me with. I emailed Katy about a month after the finalization and told her that I was able to refinance the house and the girls and I are happier than we have ever been. And just to prove hell does freeze over – Erik and I have been getting along good and I've let go of All the shit that he has said and done before and after the divorce (yes that was a HUGE pill to swallow) but the girls need parents who can be civil and even a bit happy when around each other. They need happy parents who can even bring new partners around each other and the kids at the same time. Life is to short to hold grudges and it's such a waste of energy to hate the father of my girls – without him I wouldn't have them. I wish you and Katy all the best you two were amazing. And I'm still not upset about the transition from you to Katy's caseload. ???? Thank you for everything Becky Osse P.s. I would give you a 9 – it's just that I like the number 7 better so I used that…lol

About Jeff Hughes

(also known as Jeffery Hughes, Jeff S Hughes, Jeffery Sterling Hughes)

"We operate Sterling Law daily with the conviction that we must empower clients enduring a family legal crisis, which are some of the most painful, bewildering moments of life."

When someone utters the word "divorce," specific images pop to mind. Expensive and never-ending bills, uncaring lawyers, and drawn out cases ending in heartache, to name just a few.

But why? Family law is supposed to be about serving people during some of the difficult moments of their life when they need a helping hand the most.

Jeff Hughes chose law as the platform to impact his community and the families in it. After working as a lawyer for many years, he saw that the status quo was broken, and radical changes had to be made.

As a co-founder of Sterling Law Offices, he's turned his focus to obliterating the archaic family law "old school" system.

First, and this may strike you as crazy radical - Jeff does not want you as a client of the firm. He would much rather live in a world where families never broke apart. Sadly, that is not reality. The truth is that good, loving people find themselves in a family legal crisis.

Consequently, Jeff's core belief is simple: "When people in my community find themselves in a family legal crisis, we desperately want to serve them. The need us. So, we are obsessed with creating a modern firm that focuses on them and their families. I have this unshakable conviction, that if we build a client-centered firm, we will be wildly successful. If we empower clients, we will dominate."

Second, according to Jeff, "the primary way family law is practiced today should be blown up." It starts with "ridiculous hourly billing. It just kills me that lawyers ask clients to give them their credit card or a blank check with no assurance as to what their final bill will be. We have destroyed and buried hourly billing - R.I.P. If we can't tell the client what their fees will be up front, we don't accept their money."

For Immediate help planning your divorce or answering of your questions call (414) 286-4746 now.

Third, Jeff has an incurable obsession with focusing every available firm resource on being amazing at one thing - family law. "Look, if my leg is broken, the last thing I am going to do is see a cardiologist or some general practice doc. I'm going straight to an orthopedic who specializes on legs. I just think clients need to be able to come to a firm and have confidence that their lawyer is focused 100% on family law, not dabbling in real estate one minute and criminal law the next."

Fourth, Jeff feels the prevailing attitude of family lawyers is backward. "I have this unpopular belief in my profession. We all say that we put clients first. That is cliché and, for the most part, is absolute baloney. I think most lawyers actually put themselves first. They care far more about what other lawyers think of them than what clients think of them. That is asinine. This is why Sterling surveys every client multiple times during our representation. I know most lawyers are scared to know the truth--that is why so few lawyers actually ask their client for feedback."

Finally, (Jeff insisted that we put this quote on the website): "There is a reason why we are dominating the state in family law in just a few years. There is no firm that is even close to us. It is because we are maniacal about the client's needs, wants and desires. We are winning because we put clients first, and the market is voting us to the front of the pack. Every single person going through a family legal crisis deserves to know about Sterling Law."

Outside of his career, Jeff and Winona get to love on their five boys and one girl. The Hughes family enjoys traveling to create as many special memories as possible. He is also a voracious reader, downhill skier, ping pong player, and loves, loves fishing on the Chippewa Flowage in Hayward, WI.

Jeff got his B.A. degree in history from Bob Jones University in 1994. He went on to earn his law degree (J.D) from Southern Illinois University School of Law in 1997.

After law school, Jeff became a litigating attorney at a Wisconsin law firm, McLario, Helm & Bertling S.C. before founding Sterling Law Offices. Passionate about leadership development and business, Jeff is also the founder of several other successful businesses in Menomonee Falls.
