I could not have had a better lawyer. She has helped me through a bad divorce. She was prepared for everything that could have happened and believe me it did... My ex had five lawyers to my one, and none of them could come close.. I don't know what the other person is talking about, I think he had the wrong lawyer! Because he sure didn't have mine! So if you need a great lawyer, please call mine. Joanne Meyers, I tell all my friends and family to use her, because she is that good...
The biggest thing I feel I must mention was just how irresponsible I felt she was. I asked for my divorce agreement for a WEEK (I have a disease that causes vision problems) before our court date. I asked her personally least 3 times and her poor secretary, a couple of times as well. Mostly as it got later in the week. I got it in the courtroom, 10 minutes after we were supposed to be there because she was late! I wasn't able to read the whole thing.
I always had to call her...actually I think I would have been better off going with a "fill-in-the-blank" divorce. I did one anyway (they called it a parenting agreement on the internet) and mine, while it didn't get me some of the financial things she obtained, it had what I really wanted and would have saved $3500 (which incidentally is more than the extras she actually got for me).
I asked for specific things and because she didn't want to fight, just get it signed and get out of there, I didn't get it.
She knew I had concerns over my ex-husband's parenting skills. She made me ignore the fact that he "forgot" to take the parenting course and hoped the judge would ignore it.
She was my first lawyer. I've since had one to clean up the above mess and another for other circumstances. I hate writing negative reviews. But I really don't want others to go through what I went through.
