Joan was able to blow the other lawyer out of the water. His name was Peter V. and she was able to get him to agree to some terms that I thought was going to be impossible. If your lawyer has the Initials P.V. be cautious, he botched a bunch of things up for my X. Or, Joan just toyed with him until he rolled over and gave in. I did spend over $20,000 but in the end, money well spent! She knows her stuff!
Joan is a great atty. However, your relationship with her will be effected by your ability to take her professional advice or not and try not to get too emotional. She will not promise things she can not get for you. Joan is not the kind of atty that stirs up emotion in her clients just to get letters going back and forth to rack up fees. Joan is very well known respected in her field!! I have referred others to her and they are quite happy -especially after the bad atty they had in past.
Joan was not willing to listen to her client and was mostly money motivated rather than good results for her clients benefit.
