Divorce/Custody

I hired Mr. Bice in 2013 for my divorce attorney. He was recommended by a friend. BEST DECISION I HAVE EVER MADE! Mr. Bice is fully prepared in court, knows his stuff and is very personable, which is so hard to find these days with a lawyer. He is and has always been super responsive to my needs, calls, emails, etc. at all times. Admittedly, I have probably one of the most complicated child custody, unpaid child support cases that exists and this lawyer has NEVER lost a case for me. He is still by my side as of this day, now 03/01/19. He has won every case for me with ease (and there have been many over the years due to the huge deadbeat father to my children) I have barely ever had to say a word in court because he is on top of it and takes care of everything that needs to be done immediately. Very reasonable retainer and he works with me and fights for me on payments if needed. This lawyer cares about his clients, not just money, as most lawyers do. Mr. David Bice has NEVER LET ME DOWN IN ALMOST 5 YEARS! I have recommended Mr. Bice to everyone I know who needs divorce a, child custody, or family lawyer and will continue to do so. I will personally never use any other attorney, This man is the best and I recommend you give him a call for all your divorce, and family law needs.

Great Attorney

We hired Mr. Bice to represent us in a difficult custody hearing of our granddaughter. He was very honest in telling us the situation may not go in our favor due to us being grandparents. However, during the process, Mr Bice not only bought out circumstances in our favor but fought for us all the way. He encouraged us to do everything the court requested and he even stayed in contact with DSS and CASA representatives. He attended all meetings with us as our attorney, kept us up-to-date with any changes to the case, and returned phone calls in a prompt manner. The bottom line is that Mr. Bice did get us physical and legal custody of our granddaughter. We cannot begin to thank him for his excellent service during our time of upheaval. His court room demeanor was outstanding and the judge listened to what he presented. Even though there were a few hiccups in the beginning with how some individuals viewed us as the grandparents, Mr. Bice was able to put all their minds to rest and know our granddaughter would be taken care of and loved forever. We would hire Mr. Bice again and I’m sure we will be needing his services in the future. Thank goodness there are lawyers like Mr. Bice that you can count on in difficult situations.

Adoption

Our journey with David began in February 2018. I was referred to David B. Bice from my now sister in law who had hired him to handle her divorce. My husband and I were extremely nervous when we walked into the office but were greeted with opened arms by Deedy and DJ (staff.) Shortly after, we were welcomed into David’s office as he professionally introduced himself. I stated who we were and that my husband wanted to adopt my 2 birth children but outstanding issues were making it complicated. David spoke with us about the situation and assured us that everything would be okay and he would gladly take the case. David B. Bice was very organized, down to earth and made us feel comfortable from the time we sat down. We worked very well together to get all the information needed and GET IT DONE! The ADOPTION was finalized July of 2018!!!!! Go see David… that man is AMAZING in the office and even BETTER in the courtroom!

Not just a great lawyer, a great man

From the moment we hired David we felt like we made the right decision. He was very clear and up front about the process we were about to go through. His staff, DJ, Deedy and Travis made us feel like family. As a father who lives out of state, I knew I had a battle ahead of me. David and his staff were very professional and had open communication throughout the entire ordeal. I highly recommend you hire him!

David has provided us advice and representation in the VA Juvenile and Domestic Relations Courts for two years and has always provided the type of service and efficiency anyone should want when facing these types of issues.

David has always been knowledgeable and proactive in making sure the right step is taken at the right time.

Divorce w/kids

I hired David 2 years ago to be my Divorce attorney. My hope and wishes were to use the Collaborative Method and stay out of court. I knew Mr. Bice had experience/training in this way but also knew he could fight for me and go to court if my situation escalated. Fortunately, with his experience and wisdom we were able to stay away from court and he was able to work with the opposing attorney to resolve our situation amicably. Mr. Bice has the ability to suit needs that extend outside of the courtroom but is willing to bat “a thousand” should your situation require it.

Child Custody

I retained David Bice for my custody case for my son. My son at the time of retaining Bice was 12 yrs old. I am the father going for custody of my son and needed a very good lawyer to get the job done! Bice told me in the beginning he felt good about the case, he understood the issues and how severe the living arrangement had got with my son while in the care of his mother. Bice stayed on top of things working up to the court date. Bice fought tooth and nail to get my son! He didn’t back off the defendants lawyer!! David Bice got the defendant and her lawyer to roll over the day before court!!! I got physical custody and my son primarily lives with me now!!!! I had a previous experience with another lawyer trying for custody… when I retained David Bice, he was a breath of fresh air! His team is awesome!! Anytime I needed information or questions answered about our case , I always got it in a timely manner. No delay at all. I would strongly recommend David Bice! He can get the job done!

Best Lawyer in South West Virginia

A divorce/custody battle is one of the hardest things I have ever been through. A friend had used David for a custody case and strongly recommend him. I’m sure glad I took my friends advice. Mr.Bice was always knowledgeable, caring, and understanding. I was very appreciative of David’s preparation before trial. David presented evidence and exhibits. He didn’t mudsling. Believe me its nice to have facts and at the end of the day NOT hear the judge say “I see smoke but no fire” (this has happened to me). The staff at Mr.Bice’s office our top notch as well: DJ, Deedy and Alyssa are always polite and understanding. Best Attorney South West Virginia!

Experience and professionalism when it matters

I’ve been working with David since 2015 for custody, visitation, and child support. As the father, things didn’t always go my way in the courts, but David provided the guidance that only an experience attorney can provide. He has reminded me that custody isn’t a sprint but a marathon. Thanks to his advice and professional service, every time I have gone to court I have gained more and more. I now have joint legal and physical custody of my son and I live 1200 mi away from other party! As a father fighting for custody, this is a big deal. We are on the cusp of getting full custody and it is thanks to David’s guidance and knowledge of Virginia family law.

I read the reviews before I hired David and when I read some of the negative ones, I question what their expectations were. If you expect everything to go your way every time then you’re going to be disappointed. David has no control of how the courts rule, he can only present the information and make the arguments. His courtroom experience is one of the best. He has provided me great service. He returns my phone calls and emails in a timely manner. Is it immediately, no, but he does return phone calls or emails (usually same day).

His office staff are professional and know my case personally, which I appreciate. He is a busy attorney as most good attorneys are, but he keeps me updated on my case pretty much weekly. I have been very happy with his competence in the court room. He has a knack of getting my ex to show her colors during the trials which helped the judges see her true intentions of being a gold digger isolating my son from me.

He has represented me against this B*&ch for almost two years now and I have stayed with him for a reason, he is a good attorney and a true friend. This is what you need on your side for the 18 year marathon. If you listen to him he will steer you to where you need to be.

Excellent service with great results

David was very helpful throughout the divorce and child custody process and delivered the exact result I was hoping for. He patiently worked with me through several revisions of documents and was always either there or quick to return my calls when I needed to reach him. Highly recommended.

The Best Lawyer for child custody

Mr. Bice has represented me since 2013, and still continues to fight for me to this day. I was sent to Bice by word of mouth of others and could not be more pleased with the services. This man has fought and won every case for me and my children. An abusive husband, he handled my divorce and child custody with no problems at all. A stalking Ex and deadbeat dad, handled with ease & much success. Mr. Bice is always the calm when I needed it, very responsive and easy to access him. He has proven to always be on the ball with doing everything he has promised and even arranged payments to help me with the costs when this came to be very expensive. This attorney and his staff are very friendly and responsive to requests. I could not ask for a better attorney from the beginning and he will be my attorney for years to come, I definitely recommend David B. Bice’s services for divorce and child custody.

Do your part, and he will do his

I had terrible experiences with lawyers until I stumbled upon David. I wasted time with an inexperienced lawyer dragging his feet on a divorce for 6 months before retaining David Bice. He started working right away on my complicated case and delivered not only a divorce but custody of my children within 12 months. It was not quick or cheap, but in the end very worth it, as David stuck with it and you can’t argue with the results. I am very pleased with the outcome. What the other reviewers are saying about David being great in the courtroom is absolutely true. You cannot get a more professional representation in the court room than with David Bice at your side, and that kind of piece of mind is hard to come by. I highly recommend David Bice for any divorce or custody case.

Hire, Hire, Hire

My custody highway was a horrible experience. A nightmare during the day. I have had 2 different lawyers over the course of the 3 years. I don’t own the vocabulary to describe how awesome Mr. Bice is. He was impregnable in the Courtroom. My ex-wife, and all of her witnesses told lie after lie, and from experience I can affirm she is no amateur. Mr. Bice engaged each and everyone of them, with true legal precision. The Court found none of them to be creditable after the encounter with Mr. Bice. He was in command and control from start to finish. My ex was so confused during cross-examination, she just started laughing. Mr. Bice, never broke character, stood and continued to question with brazen equanimity. He is the quintessence of legal counsel. He is the attorney that other attorneys hire. I am an attorney and I hired him. My children are safe and sound with me at home. If you hire him, he will get it done. He is a formidable weapon in the family law battle. Lastly, I will say if he walks in with your opponent, you might want to consider negotiation; however, I doubt you will fare any better

Protecting a fathers rights

If you don’t pick David Bice as you attorney, you had better hope the other party does not show up with him. Charismatic does not touch his presence in the courtroom. When David walks into court, he owns the room. You get what you pay for. Recently, I had the opportunity to watch another attorney at work on a case that indirectly involved me. This lawyer was unprepared, stumbling in front of the judge, and had it not been for a court appointed attorney involved in the case, the case would have been lost. This would have not have happened if David Bice was on the case. He leads you into the court room he has prepared you for, and delivers as was promised. Get your retainer in quickly, and let David lead you to a successful resolution to your case, as he did mine. NOTE: Be honest with David, even if honesty is just the ugly truth. You do not want surprises in the courtroom.

Visitation Client

David is the best there is. He took an impossible situation and turned it on its head. If it were not for him, I would have been up the creek without a paddle. David’s courtroom control is untouchable. He and his office were VERY responsive. You will not find a better lawyer in the area.

Hire David before someone else does

David Bice has been my attorney since 2013 when he walked me through a divorce and protected my rights as a father. In that time he earned every penny he was paid, and was reasonable with his charges. To quite honest, he tried to return some of the money I had paid him, and I requested he keep it. David Bice is a man you want on your side, as an attorney and as a friend. Lately, he defended my rights as a father again and did an outstanding job. I will keep David Bice as my attorney for the future, and would recommend anyone do the same (get him before someone else does). I know the hours he keeps in his office, and I do not know of anyone who works as hard for his clients as does he. My suggestion to future clients is to keep open communication with David as he is defending your rights, and the outcome will be favorable. Listen to his counsel; and above all, make a friend out of him and he will defend you too. Thank you David, for all you have done for my family, I owe you a debt of gratitude. Keep up the good work!

Incredible service

During the holidays I began the process of a divorce. After listening to my situation David gave me a very reasonable retainer estimate. Everything went exactly to schedule and my retainer was not increased at all, I was even returned a small remainder. I ended up with a much more favorable divorce settlement that I was expecting.

One thing I cannot stress enough (which was very impressive to me) is the level of accessibility. His office responded to all of my emails literally within 10 minutes of my submissions. Appointments to sign paperwork were very flexible and everything was always prepared and ready to go when I arrived.

Good results with David Bice

David Bice did an excellent job representing me in a very complex case involving an investment controversy. He is very level headed and helped me realize through his calm demeanor that we just had to work through the variety of details and be patient. I felt that his fees were reasonable for the aggravation, time and energy that he expended on my behalf. The end result was favorable.

Review of David Bice

David is a detail oriented professional who strives to deliver quality legal solutions to his clients. I retained the services of David a few years ago during a child custody matter and was beyond impressed with his savvy and legal abilities. David was methodical in his approach from our first consultation by phone thru the final court proceeding. David displayed a unique, high performance methodology that was both cost effective and on point. I highly recommend David’s services to those needing expert legal representation!

A Great Attorney !

If you are looking for legal representation, David Bice should be at the top of your list! Mr. Bice served as counsel for a custody hearing and did an outstanding job. I found him to be knowledgeable of the law and his preparation was remarkable. I was very impressed with his attention to detail including taking the time to research the judge and opposing counsel. His court room savvy is a tribute to his confidence which is unmatched by anyone in Lynchburg or the surrounding area. His office is well managed and though he has many clients, I was given the confidence as to the importance of my case. Mr. Bice was very honest when explaining legal options and always allowed me to make the decisions as to the direction of my case while keeping me informed. He makes every effort to keep your case affordable and never advises you in an attempt to make more money. I have recommended him to friends and family who have also been very satisfied. If I was again ever in a situation requiring legal counsel, I wouldn’t hesitate to call him. Be careful of other reviewers and their negative comments. It has always been my experience that those who comment negatively on an attorney and his practices/performance are usually the clients that want the outcome to be one of perfection and one hundred percent in their favor. I have found there is a direct correlation between the verdict and the satisfaction of the client with the lawyer and his services. It is rare that any client ever gets everything they want, especially in an unpredictable place such as a courtroom. It is the job of an attorney to represent your interests while giving you sound legal advice to the best of his abilities. I feel Mr. Bice does just this! Again, I recommend his services without hesitation.
