Posted by a Family client,
Was with this atty several yrs ago. Wont tell u one thing about the law unless hes paid and thinks every minute of his time is Gods gift to the world. Was unable to get one legal thing out of him
My divorce was miserable and i got nothing due to his bad mannerisms. Thought an atty should be concerned about the client. I do not recommend him nor do think any person should waste money on attys when you could be giving the $75o0 to your family or take your own kids on vacations.Thats what they do . they make their own lives better.

I hire him for joint custody family court issue, ex husband did nothing for the kids... so he passed the bar? that doesnt mean he passes the test of being a good human being. I had a custody issue after the divorce and used this atty. His attitude was clear from the beginning NEVER to give legal advice to his client. My joint custody wasnt working and neither was this attorney! He cant make a clear sentence , sorry but he wants to be paid for every minute. he must have been taught that being an atty means you are valued and are god.

To my dismay I hired Paul Bornow to handle a routine, simple and straight forward legal matter. Unfortunately I did not do a background check prior to hiring him. I unfortunately found out that he was not competent in handling my matter even though he originally stated that he could otherwise. He is not a good lawyer and I would advise anyone who would consider hiring this guy to do their due dilligence in investigating him before doing so. Save yourself the time and aggrevatinon and stay away from this individual.

I hired him for a legal matter and he mishandled the whole case. He didn't know what he was doing. He is never reachable, never returns phone calls, charges for work not performed and has a staff that is just and rude and incompetent as he is. I have noticed that others have had the same experience with this guy. Do yourself a favor and either stay away from this guy.

I HAD LEGAL PROBLEM WITH DIVORCE AND CRIMINAL ISSUE FROM IRATE EX HUSBAND.
THIS ATTORNEY IS MOST INTERESTED I N TAKING MONEY AND NEVER GAVE ANY LEGAL ADVICE.
I WENT TO HIM FOR DIVORCE/CRIMINAL ISSUES AND HE SIMPLY HAS NO KNOWLEDGE AND IS CHEAP WITH GIVING LEGAL INFORMATION. IM NOT SURE IF HIS PARENTS PUSHED HIM TO BE AN ATTY JUST TO MAKE MONEY BUT I THINK HES I\N THE WRONG FIELD.

I hired this lawyer to handle a real property matter. He prolonged the case longer then was necessary. He continually billed me for unearned work. From my one time of retaining this lawyer, I would recommend all the stay away.
Posted by a Domestic Violence client,
I recommend this lawyer for aggressive litigation and response (if he handles the case personally.)
