Posted by a Divorce client
I paid this attorney $450 for an initial consultation over a modification of an existing separation agreement concerning the custody. On our follow up phone conversation the next day she insisted that she wanted to re-write the whole agreement(!) which I did not need her to do. She clearly did not listen to my needs and continued trying to sell me her services I didn't need. I then informed her that I would not go forward with her since she wasn't doing what I needed her to do. She got very resentful. Sure enough, I received a bill from her for $600 claiming that she wrote a new agreement! She never had any time to write a new agreement between the time of the initial office consultation and the phone call and we were still deliberating. When I asked her to email me a copy of the said work she said "she no longer had it"! I continued to dispute the bill then she started to send me nasty threatening emails to go to collection. I ended up paying! Needless to say a divorce is a stressful manner and last thing you need is someone who is multiplying your stress financially and emotionally.
