Be aware or maybe I just don't understand . Ms Makuta charges you if you have a question about your case OK but to charge three times for it ? Once for your call and again for her to return the call with the answer!!!! Again for the time it took her to find the answer( that she should have already know) !!!! Constantly!!! She will nickle and dime you again and again. The case was over for a year she reviewed my file for no reason and charged me. FOR WHAT? She owed me money that's why.I have worked with many different attorneys before in family, real estate, and business matters and they never charged for every little thing NEVER!! She charged me for a phone call "just calling to see if you need anything, just let me know what I can do to help make this go smoothly for you" End of my part of the call. I got charged for that call and others similar. Please learn when to charge and not to charge your client. Try a little harder to use common sense when billing. Other than that she was OK. We did win and for than I am thankful. NO MORE NICKLE AND DIME PLEASE

In my experience and what I have interpreted is this : unless you have $ , or are flawless, she will pick at you and target you like she is the opposing side. She is supposed to be representing ME, yet has done NOTHING to help. She has not once called me or returned my calls in between hearings, barely speaks up for me in court, doesn't point out anything that I ask her to bring up, she made me cry at our first hearing right before we went into the court room before the judge, etc. She never took the time to actually " HEAR" what I had to say, and basically treated me like crap. It feels as though she is working for the other side, and not for me. I'm not sure it it's because she is court appointed or because she is just discriminate against people that have physical or mental health problems. Whatever the case, I am innocent of 90 % of things that are being used against me in court, and she has not done her part as my attorney to go out of her way and defend me.
