They never made promises they couldn't keep, and helped me understand everything.

Jeff Hughes is sexist

I would not recommend this law firm to anyone who values a business standing behind its word/contract, confidentiality of personal information or being treated with respect. I hired Sterling a little more than one year ago. Not until recently did I discover my original Sterling lawyer, who is no longer with this firm, did not file any Stage 1 documents for my divorce – documents I provided more than 8 months prior. Nor did they negotiate with my ex's attorney. The stage one documents – financials and MSA – were only pointed out as missing by the judge overseeing my divorce. Embarrassing to say the least – to be caught off guard like that. Moreover, the next attorney that was assigned to me by Sterling sent me personal identification and financial information of another couple filing for divorce! After this, I could not trust Sterling law, so I terminated my relationship with Sterling and retaining new counsel. But in the end, what I'm most disgusted by is attorney Jeff Hughes of Sterling. He is nothing short of a misogynist – going as far as to slut shame me via email after I attempted to discuss a refund for services not completed by the firm in the Stage 1, as laid out in the firm's contract. This man has something seriously wrong with his heart, and needs to adjust his attitude towards women. Or at the least, take note of the #metoo movement.

My ex and I had already agreed all the terms, financially and with regard to our children, but the situation changed. Sterling was there to help me get things sorted out in the best interest of our children.

I felt comfortable in communicating my most personal issues with this matter. Not made to feel I was untruthful. In the end he fought hard and had a lot of energy.

Had one lawyer no longer with firm. He didnít know much about family law and wasted 2k on him. Had to pay absorbent amount. I went with another lawyer she was okay and then she moved to another firm. Getting her the funds and going through Sterling was not easy.

Patricia was very good with the intake and then the case was handed off the other attorney was too busy for you. It went from lots of information and communication to silence.

The mediation process went pretty smooth.

There were a couple of items we needed to address regarding the parenting plan and one of the financial disclosure documents but had them correct for our final hearing. Your company did not have a local attorney in our area who was able to handle a case in Brown county so we were assigned one from the Milwaukee area. We conducted our meetings using Web-ex meetings and by phone calls. I did request a final call from our Attorney prior to our final hearing date and received an email back that she had left the company. I was able to get in touch with another Attorney to get my questions answered.
