"Mr. Zryd handled my case and got me exactly what I wanted! He was very informative and helped me get through a very tough process. My husband's lawyer was a shark from Beverly Hills, but Mr. Zryd fought for me and won! His rates were reasonable and he was VERY thorough. I highly recommend him if you are looking for a fantastic lawyer."

"In February of 2015 I separated from my fiance of 4 years. At the time we had a 2.5 year old daughter together and I was concerned about custody of her. I had never been through something like this before and was searching the internet for answers and help. I spoke to four attorneys before I found Mr. Zyrd and as soon as I met with him I knew, within minutes, that I wanted him to represent me and my case. Child custody lawsuits are one of the most difficult. They are filled with emotion, disappointment, hurt, betrayal, and uncertainty. I felt all these emotions throughout the entire case, but anytime I needed help I felt comfortable calling John and he would talk me through it and offer support, both mentally and legally. I wouldn't say I was a "needy" client, but I was very concerned about getting what I wanted and filled with anxiety and stress the entire time and expressed this on many occasions; John never made me feel like I was a bother or a burden. He was extremely knowledgable about the court system and how my case would go. He made sure I understood the forms I was signing and prepared me for any possibilities that may arise throughout the course of the case. It was a tough battle, and John went to war for me and my daughter. Our case was especially difficult because I was requesting a move away back home to my family. John assured me that he would work his hardest to get me what I wanted and essentially what was best for my child. He did just that. As a single mother, trying to do what is in the best interest of my child, the entire process was nerve wracking and I never doubted John's abilities in the slightest. I would absolutely, 100%, recommend his services to anyone, friend or stranger. If you are struggling with the legal system for your custody, divorce, or any other legal suit please give him a call. His fee is very reasonable, his knowledge of the legal system, and his determination to please his clients is top notch."
