Kari

Andrew Hunstad is honest, truthful, knowdependable, always responds asap, and has made my divorce case the best experience I've ever had with an Attorney. With absolutely no thought I could get what was fair from the divorce, Andrew made sure I got what was fair and I'm extremely pleased and thankful. Hands down, Sheridan & Dulas is the #1 place to go to for your divorce case. If you're able to, ask for a consultation with Andrew Hunstad... you won't regret it!

Judie T.

Feeling lost, with the pending divorce after 19 years of marriage, I reached out to Andrew T. Hunstad of Sheridan & Dulas, P.A. He gave me the best advice " Get a good therapist because I am not. But I am an excellent attorney." He had my back through the entire process. And that was worth every dollar I spent.

Jen A.

I friend recommended I talk with Andrew Hunstad after my first attorney stopped communicating with me. I decided to hire him to take over my case.. Andrew was very professional and responsive to my calls and emails. From the beginning, Andrew listened to me. I told him what was important to me and he did not forget. Divorce is not much fun but finding someone who can explain the law, communicate my concerns, and deliver made it easier. Take my advice, talk to him before you hire anyone else.

Sarah

I hired Andrew for my divorce. I couldn't have made a better choice. His hard work secured maintenance and financial security for my family.

Jon

Mr. Hunstad, When we first met, we discussed my concerns related to the divorce and spousal maintenance, amongst other things. You were candid in your advice and told me what I needed to hear. Your understanding of the law and the emotions involved saved me from making a costly mistake. You literally saved me $7,000.00 each month. Thank you, again.

Andrew was always very responsive to my inquiries and was able to complete my divorce in only 6 weeks.

Linda

Andrew was methodical and calm and wise and dug in to get the complete information, but remained calm and friendly and available to me as if I was his only client. In the end, he went to court without me even there. I met him once, briefly; which in hindsight seems outrageous for a person who's legal work amounts to several million dollars worth of settlements. I couldn't be more happy with what Andrew accomplished for me and for how kind he was doing it. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing a divorce attorney.

Vanessa

Andrew Hunstad and the staff were helpful and responsive to all of my questions and concerns. They made a very difficult time for me as quick and as painless as possible. He is a real professional and made all legal matters a walk in the park for me. From the free consultation, all the way until the finalization Andrew and the staff were extremely professional and knowledgeable about the process. Highly recommend!

Bev

I was encouraged to hire an attorney for my divorce, I didn’t know where to begin looking. I found Andrew through the Ramsey County Bar Association. I did an initial consultation with him and hired him on the spot. Andrew is knowledgeable, helped me understand all the legalities. He works hard to be fair and provide an equitable outcome. I would recommend him and have recommended him to several people.
