This lawyer represented me until she was done with my case and then went on to represent the other woman in my divorce case because my ex has a lot of money. She is ruthless and a shameful representative of the legal system.
I first met with Janice Yaw and gave her a check for $175.00 for a 30 minute consultation about my case. She said all the right things. Once I hired her as my attorney and gave her a retainer, She attended one 15 minute conference and then just kept passing my case off to who ever in her firm to fill in. She did not return my phone calls and then requested more money, I mean alot of money when she did NOTHING on my case except give me false hope and like I said she passed my case onto others and when I called the office they told me that I signed a paper agreeing that anyone in the firm can take my case which was not true. Even so I believe that she acted totally unprofessional.
She went back to my daughters fathers lawyer and told her more then she was suppose to, she never answered her phone, just all around horrible and to top it all of, while the case was still open and I was still under 18 she attempted to sue me for late payments!
Very disappointed. Came across so angry that it didn't help my case.
