Surratt Law Practice Client Testimonials

Back in the early part of March of this year I received a call from the first of a Band of Angels I was about to meet.

Dear Kim, Dawn & Travis, Back in the early part of March of this year I received a call from the first of a Band of Angels I was about to meet. They cleverly disguise themselves as Surratt Law. I have seen & heard of people like you, usually in a well written TV show or some highly published Best Seller. We like to imagine ourselves as part of the script but mostly it remains a fantasy. I however have been privileged & honored to personally know you all & be part of the magic from you & those I have not met. Eight years ago when my child was born I had no way of knowing the course of what was to come. Someone GREATER than all of us had already secretly commissioned HIS chosen ones for this very day to be possible. And like you, I had a team. Though mine were family & friends to encourage & push & love each other through the most delightful, scary, tough and rewarding journey that no one could imagine. “How are you going to do this?” I remember those words from my mom way back in the beginning.”I don’t know mom I’m just going to do it.” As you have heard…that which does not kill us…my son has given all of us more than anyone can ever imagine and you beautiful people have made a true dream come to life. I thank you for all you hard work, your time & many words of encouragement. Nothing on the Earth could ever measure up to what you have done for me & my Family. The MOMENT I walked into that office I felt comfort & peace. As you know this is also sad in many other ways, but now I know I can handle any questions or issues that will arise in the future, whether from my son or my daughter. I will remain overwhelmed by the events of the day for a very long time. With love & appreciation

The reasons why I retained Surratt law practice are ...
The Nevada family court system is difficult to navigate without an attorney, I know because I tried for almost 3 years. Finally, it occurred to me that my daughter’s well being was at stake and I was willing to pay any amount of money necessary to ensure that my ex (who has a history of abusing drugs and abandoning our child) was not granted “rights” I was sure my ex did not deserve. I was pleasantly surprised by how inexpensive the peace of mind I received at Surratt law was attained, especially considering how truly priceless it is. Unlike other attorney’s offices, there is no exorbitant cost for copies or phone calls, no advice without explanation, and never a cold shoulder. I learned more from my consultation at Surratt law than I learned in my five previous consultations with other law offices combined. Once I retained them there came this feeling of comfort because this group of lawyers and paralegals really knew what they were talking about. I knew my child’s life would never be turned upside down by one of my exes whims, I knew that I would never have to drop my child off to people I believed were on drugs because it was my exes ordered time, and I knew that my ex would not be able to exhaust my limited resources by petitioning whenever my ex wanted to a part of our child’s life.Surratt law was the only light on a dark and foggy night and for that I owe them a debt of gratitude that will never be repaid. Should you be considering other lawyers or going it alone like I did, I implore you to please stop. This is the exact law practice I needed and I am confident it will meet and exceed your all of your expectations. We hired Kim to help us with a same-sex couple second-parent adoption for our infant twins. Kim was fantastic to work with–she knew the law, the issues, the judges, and everything in between. Everything went smoothly throughout the process (even the judge commented on how perfect all of the paperwork was), and in the end, we were able to make legal what we already felt–that we are a family. We would highly recommend Kim to anyone in need of an adoption attorney in Reno or elsewhere in Nevada, and will definitely use her in the future if we decide to expand our family. -Jill
Rayna represented me when I was going through one of the most difficult times of my life, a broken marriage that involved separation of property but more importantly visitation rights with my daughter.

Rayna represented me when I was going through one of the most difficult times of my life, a broken marriage that involved separation of property but more importantly visitation rights with my daughter. I found myself weak minded and heartbroken over the thought of my daughter relocating out of town with her mother. Rayna’s multiple qualities were apparent upon first visit, she listened, she cared, and she told me we’ll get through this and we did. Rayna’s calming personality carried over into the most difficult negotiations always keeping the issue in perspective. I found Rayna to be reliable, even tempered and professional throughout this period and this includes to all parties involved. Her actions and follow-up were timely which gave me the confidence that she was on top of it. Her supportive nature was constant throughout the litigation. She was there to support me and I could believe in her. Standing in front of a judge is not to be taken lightly, when this moment of truth arrives in one’s life you want the best representation you can find, her preparation and professionalism were key to a favorable ruling. If you are in need of enlisting family law representation in Reno, Nevada I strongly encourage you to speak with Rayna first. I can tell you that you will be speaking with a real professional, a great attorney, and a very good person. -John
I was in an extreme state of anxiety when I solicited the legal advice and services from Surratt Law Practice. Because the legal issues that I faced involved my children only made my agitation more pronounced, I not only needed a lawyer but someone who also understood and could connect with the personal pain that I was experiencing. ~Henry
I was in an extreme state of anxiety when I solicited the legal advice and services from Surratt Law Practice. Because the legal issues that I faced involved my children only made my agitation more pronounced, I not only needed a lawyer but someone who also understood and could connect with the personal pain that I was experiencing. Believe me, I was in a lot of pain and depressed. I found what I needed, thankfully, at the moment of my first consultation with Rayna Brachmann. I will never forget and will always be grateful for a statement she made after I presented my case: “You’re a good dad.” At that point, at that time and in that moment, that is what I needed to hear because up until then I was made to feel the opposite. Ms. Brachmann elected to represent me, explained thoroughly the business of her fees, how it worked, how things could get more expensive or even less expensive, and detailed a game plan. Everything that she explained to me was in a professional manner, accurate and timely. Rayna was the legal captain of my ship in troubled waters. Knowing that was an immediate relief of tension and self imposed pressure. I had someone on my side. Her support staff, namely Heather Dillard, was readily available, courteous, patient and kind whenever I needed answers during the procession of my case. I received accurate accounts of how my funds were spent. I am thoroughly pleased with the final outcome and disposition of my legal matter. Ms. Brachmann, as well as the Surratt team, did my family a great service. Thank you! ~Henry
I wanted for you to know how much I appreciate the professional assistance that yourself and the office staff provided to me during my recent custody case. - Tim T.
Kim, I wanted for you to know how much I appreciate the professional assistance that yourself and the office staff provided to me during my recent custody case. Finances are typically strained in a divorce case and mine certainly were not the exception. Therefore the ability to represent my self as much as possible was important for preserving funds which indirectly go to the children in one form or another. Thank you and your staff for helping me secure full custody of the minor children as well, the ability to relocate out of state away from the non custodial parent. A feat typically not easily awarded to a male parent. -Tim T

I just wanted to send my heartfelt thanks and appreciation to you and your staff for helping me through a uniquely frustrating and stressful period of my life. - Marty
I just wanted to send my heartfelt thanks and appreciation to you and your staff for helping me through a uniquely frustrating and stressful period of my life. I am always greeted with a warm smile and have been made to feel comfortable at your office and while on the phone with Tamara. I always get a quick response to e-mails by either you, Dawn or Diana. I feel like you are all on my team–and I almost hate to admit how comforting that is. We definitely have our work cut out for us . . . but I’m feeling confident about getting this thing behind me with minimal damage. That is a sole product of going through the process with you and your staff. Thank you. ~Marty

Thank you, Melissa! For the outstanding job you did fighting for me and protecting my daughter. -Royal Kuchoff
Thank you, Melissa! For the outstanding job you did fighting for me and protecting my daughter. For your professionalism, compassion, and for being so damn smart. My circumstance was highly precarious to say the least but as the captain of the ship, you guided me through the angst ridden maze, and I am forever grateful to you… -Royal Kuchoff
Filing for divorce is one of the toughest challenges of your life - Steve
Filing for divorce is one of the toughest challenges of your life, especially when children are involved. Rayna Brachmann’s professionalism, exhibited by her caring nature, attention to detail, and her ability to walk us through this difficult process was much appreciated. I have recommended Rayna’s services to friends who have found themselves in the same position, as I know they will be treated with respect and dignity. -Steve
Having gone through two divorces fifteen years apart, and having been the target of animosity during the first one for no less than five (5) different divorce lawyers in Reno, I feel I've come to know a little bit about the community of Family Law practitioners in Reno. - Wayne
Having gone through two divorces fifteen years apart, and having been the target of animosity during the first one for no less than five (5) different divorce lawyers in Reno, I feel I’ve come to know a little bit about the community of Family Law practitioners in Reno. Of all those I’ve come to know, to some degree or other, you are the one I’d recommend. You’re ability to work professionally and cooperatively with the other side is a strength and quality that often goes unappreciated or overlooked. During my first divorce, it seemed like the attorneys on both sides took a genuine disliking toward one another. This did me and my ex-wife more harm than good. When people go through divorce they need help…. not someone who is going to make things worse. You really helped. -Wayne
