We highly recommend John and his firm.

Having moved to Las Vegas a couple of years ago, my family and I were in need of an attorney for a family matter. We turned to John Buchmiller Law.

Thankfully our matter was cleared up quick by John personally, we couldn't have been in better hands. We highly recommend John and his firm.

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!

We weren’t just a number to her! We are truly grateful we found John Buchmiller & Associates and will never be able to thank Ashley enough!

I highly recommend .

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

- Gabriel Gordon


Highly highly recommend!

I just want to start off by saying even being the only responsible, financially stable, with no criminal record parent. The law still leaned on giving my children’s father rights. With my attorney Seth Strickland’s help, I was able to win full sole custody within only 3 months of hiring this firm! He made everything so easy for me! He filed everything with an emergency motion based of the severity of my children’s safety being a concern. I highly recommend them to anyone. I have several years of management administration experience even being proficient in filing documents. It was such a headache till I had my attorney by my side! I will recommend them to anyone going through custody battles. Not only did I win everything I asked for but I also won all my legal fees being reimbursed! Just overall the best and so financially affordable! Highly highly recommend!

Highly highly recommend!

(Long review) Update: New attorney on my case: BETHANY DONALDSON I’ve read the other reviews so I’m only going to speak what I first hand experienced. If you read my old review you’ll see I had already won my case & was completely satisfied with my attorney at that time. Well let’s just say a custody case can be reopened with a simple motion & my previous attorney no longer works there. Well my opposing party tried to pull a fast one and lie and do perjury, my nightmare began all over again but as soon as I contacted the firm they got to work immediately. Based on the severity of my children’s well being at risk with the opposing party. It made it 10000x more stressful for me, but no words can describe the peace of mind this law firm has given me. As soon as I spoke to Mrs. Donaldson all my fears were put to rest as she reassured me she had all the concrete evidence needed to defend my custody decree. Prior to hiring this firm I contacted several others all in which were extremely expensive and uncooperative with people’s financial circumstances not everyone has $10k as just a retainer not to mention other hidden fees. But Buchmiller and Associated by far gave me the best price and quality! Not only did my attorney do her job so efficiently that we won everything even attorney fees! Not all attorneys stay humble and kind hearted, everyone is always just there for the money. This attorney is the most honest, & humble attorney I have ever spoke to. But in the court room she is able to hold her position, & is aggressive to defend her client all in a very professional manner. I am beyond grateful for her, & will not look else where. She helped me defend my position, peace, and most importantly help keep my children’s safety. My case was last minute and I know even other staff helped on my case to ensure everything was done in a timely manner. Im overall extremely pleased, and satisfied with my legal representation and would like to thank everyone at this firm who helped my case in any way! Bethany Donaldson, thank you so much I will recommend you to anyone I know needing family law help. To anyone reading this: Don’t always base your decision on others reviews this is my 2nd attorney at this firm and my experience has been nothing but successful. At the end of the day all law firms want to be paid, but getting an attorney to give you the peace of mind I desperately needed doesn’t have a price! Call and talk to Beth you won’t regret it Old review: I just want to start off by saying even being the only responsible, financially stable, with no criminal record parent. The law still leaned on giving my children’s father rights. With my attorney Seth Strickland’s help, I was able to win full sole custody within only 3 months of hiring this firm!

Thank you so much. Our forever attorney!

We hired Bethany Donaldson-Burns to represent us in a custody hearing. When I say the relationship and willingness to learn every and anything about our case was and has been phenomenal - that’s Bethany.

Thank you!

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. You can tell she really cares about each of her clients and does whatever she can to help with the legal process. Knowing I have someone who has my best interest in mind has really provided some peace during these tough times. Thank you!

- Ryan Prince


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.

- John McClain


Kristina was amazing!

I’m grateful for the opportunity and outcome.

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
