I hired this attorney to represent me in my divoce, at which time I gave him 5,000.00 dollars in march 2013. My ex's attorney would put me on the stand yell at me accuse me of everything, from stealing $ to slander. Attorney Cashman would just stand there and say nothing. I would ask him why he didn't say anything his only comment would be the judge will frown upon that in trial. I would call his office to see how the progress was going. He had me gather documents and I made copies of paperwork needed for both attorneys , in june 2013 he said he needed more money to continue . I gave him an additional 500.00 and said I would make payments. The end of August comes around he presented a bill of almost 6,000.00 dollars, he said that would cover me through the trial. I exclaimed to him I didn't have the money at that time. A couple of weeks go by I get a motion in the mail that he doesnt want to represent me any more because I can't pay 2 1/2 weeks . before trial . I had to find a new attorney Theresa Rose Degray for 3,000.00 dollars I was divorced before the trial date. I would highly recommend her.
That was something I never saw Attorney Cashman make an attempt to do was negotiate with out going to trial . If he negotiated before a trial he wouldn't get more MONEY!!!!

went through a difficult divorce with this attorney. He doesn't pay attention to details and I believe got clobbered because of it. Very passive, typically lets the other side take the lead and reacts to it. Often asked me what I wanted to do rather than make suggestions. Lost paperwork frequently. Didn't have much of a plan throughout the divorce action. Often refers to his relationships with other attorneys and judges as a benefit, but I didn't have a single instance when I thought it benefited my case. I would not recommend him
