Mr. Jose Contreras helped with my divorce and custody case. Truly recommend if you want an honest lawyer by your side.

Ivette Garcia

Custody Casr

You can count on Jose because he actually cares about doing the right thing. He helped me get my child support adjusted to the proper amount. He stayed patient through the process and was ready to do whatever it took to get it right. Great attorney!


Isabel Pittman

Child Support

Mr. Contreras is an outstanding attorney. He was my defense attorney for my phone hearing with the judge. I found out today that my case was dismissed. I’m thankful and fortunate to have had Mr. Contreras represent me on my behalf. He answered all my questions effectively and efficiently throughout my case. I would highly recommend Mr. Contreras for any legal issues.


Dianna Kirk

I cannot recommend Jose highly enough! As a divorced mother, I’ve been through multiple custody and child support cases with my ex. Jose has been with me every step of the way.. he made it possible for me to move out of state, helped me keep my children when my ex was making false claims and fought the judge on getting the kids the child support they needed. He is not only an excellent lawyer, but he is also an extremely empathetic person who genuinely cares about his clients.
Jose always tries to reason with the other party first, but if negotiation isn’t possible, he knows exactly what to do in court. He is a skilled litigator who fights hard for his clients’ rights and interests, and I always felt confident that I had the best representation possible. Another thing I appreciated about Jose was how affordable he was. He worked with me to keep costs down, and when I saw my ex’s lawyer bill, I was shocked to see that there was an astronomical difference between his fees and Jose’s…. I’m extremely grateful for Jose’s help. He made a difficult and stressful time much more manageable, and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a compassionate and effective attorney. Thank you, Jose!


Michelle Bericha

The best!!
José is the best, always thinking about the well-being of his client, he made me win custody of my son even when my ex put up every obstacle during the process, he succeeded, and I will be eternally grateful for that.
He and his team always fighting against injustice, being very or too accessible, and understanding and I undoubtedly recommend him with closed eyes, he is the best at what he does, and once again THANK YOU infinitely José for being a great lawyer and human
