She's an advocate for domestic violence victims and single mothers alike.

Kristie black is by far the best attorney I could have ever asked for. My custody battle was not an easy one but she had the patience of a Saint. And after months, my relocation was granted full custody and a happy life for my kids and I with our family and friends. She trusted me and I trusted her. I would absolutely recommend her for everything. I wish I could give her 20 stars unfortunately I can only give 5. But this woman saved our lives and I would absolutely do it all over again if I had the opportunity to have her as my lawyer. She's an advocate for domestic violence victims and single mothers alike. Thank you Kristie From the kids and i

I am so thankful to have found such an amazing advocate for my children.

I was working with another attorney who was very nice and actually did a good job on my custody case but I didn’t feel as if they were passionate enough about helping me keep my kids safe and with me. I ended up reaching out to a couple of attorneys and once I spoke with Kristina Black, I knew I found the ally I was looking for. Kristina made me feel at ease immediately and I could tell how determined and focused she was from the start. She let me talk and explain the situation in detail, really getting a clear picture of what was needed in my case. When court came, she was amazing and so professional, handling everything and getting the results we needed. Kristina has constantly been a resource for me and my questions and I am so thankful to have found such an amazing advocate for my children.

I recommend John and his team of professionals to anyone who is in a custody battle.

I hired Buchmiller and associates in April of 2022 for a custody case. I was completely lost on what to do. I was assigned Bethany Donaldson and she was absolutely amazing. She made always made me feel secure during the entire process. She was really communicative throughout the entirety of the case. It took about 10 months to finalize everything. They really worked with me on payment options and in the end I received the best outcome I could’ve asked for and all right before the holiday season started. I recommend John and his team of professionals to anyone who is in a custody battle. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

Ian Elliott was fantastic- my divorce was done in 2 months.

Ian Elliott was fantastic- my divorce was done in 2 months. He was a calm voice of reason when I had nothing to go on but emotion. I had a lawyer within three days of my initial e-mail. He got me everything I asked for, and returned my phone calls and emails in a very timely manner, even when he was home sick. Thank you Ian.

Their expertise and knowledge were priceless.

Mrs. Donaldson and Mrs. Black walked me through a hard fought custody case. Their expertise and knowledge were priceless and they always made themselves available for any questions I had. I’d highly recommend Buchmiller and associates for your divorce or custody case.

Thank you Bethany we wish you nothing more than success and happiness.

Last year Nov of 2021 My mother and I were in desperate need of a lawyer after her sons father kicked her out and threatened legal custody of my sibling. My mother is a single mom and has trouble communicating because of a language barrier and Our lawyer Bethany was very helpful in every aspect. She helped my mother and I during the whole process and was very detailed. Bethany always answered my calls and text at any point of the day. I loved the fact she was a women because she was very understanding and made us more comfortable. She was vicious and fought for my mother. What we wanted from this was to be able to have my sibling with us and she did just that. Thank you Bethany we wish you nothing more than success and happiness.

I’m grateful for the opportunity and outcome that she provided to me and my family.

To whom it may concern, Ms. Black worked on my child custody case for me regarding my 15 year daughter. This was going to be a difficult case to win because it was an out state case that had a lot twist and turns involving lies deception and a possible flight risk to Mexico. Ms. Black worked hard to gathering all the information needed as she researched my case. Ms. Black presented me with several options and possible outcomes in my case which prepare me for any outcome good or bad. Ms. Black listened to me, answering all my questions and concerns. Ms. Black won custody case!!!! I’m grateful for the opportunity and outcome that she provided to me and my family. Thank you T.L.T

If needed, I’ll be returning.

It was a bit of a long road for me, but the end result was a strong finish. Over a year to settle things, but that wasn’t on them, rather the OTHER attorney taking his sweet time responding. Once Bethany took over my case, after 2 other attorneys left, things were resolved within a few months. If needed, I’ll be returning.

I've been working with Bethany Donaldson and couldn't be happier.

I've been working with Bethany Donaldson and couldn't be happier. She is willing to answer my calls or emails on the weekends, after work hours and even just calls to check on my mental health and how I'm holding up.

Knowing I have someone who has my best interest in mind has really provided some peace during these tough times. Thank you!

I highly recommend Seth Strickland to represent anyone for their family law matter.

From November thru April I was not able to spend one day with my daughter. My previous attorney was difficult to get ahold of, lazy, and incapable of filing motions on time. After firing my original attorney and hiring John Buchmiller and associates they negotiated visitation for me to see my daughter within a couple weeks. One day a week at first… then… a few months later I received a court order for SOLE PHYSICAL and SOLE LEGAL custody!! Seth Strickland was my attorney at John Buchmiller. He NEVER once missed a deadline or a court date. And ALWAYS responded to my questions extremely fast. Seth is extremely well organized, eloquent, and professional in the court room. I highly recommend Seth Strickland to represent anyone for their family law matter. Sincerely, Thank you, Gabriel Gordon

They offer free counsel on the phone or in the office.

I hired John Buchmiller and Associates for a custody relocation back to Illinois. It was about a 4-5 month process and was granted by the judge with a new order in place. I also appreciated that I was not charged for every phone call and email that was made. Their billing is affordable and very straight forward. Do yourself a favor and at least call to get a quote. They offer free counsel on the phone or in the office. Thank You!
