Linda M. Shick was assigned to me as a probono attorney by Legal Aid to represent me in a Protection From Abuse hearing. She called me when she was assigned to do the job. To my shock, she was extremely angry, and sarcastic towards me. I asked her why she was angry at me, and what she wanted me to do. There was zero professional courtesy towards me at all. I am sure that she has never acted this way towards even one of her "paying" clients. Her attitude was so nasty and condescending towards me that I called Legal Aid and told them that I did not want her to represent me, and that I would go it alone in court. She has no respect towards poverty stricken, abused people and should be taken off the probono list. I literally felt assaulted with an angry attitude by her. I hope that no other poverty, abused person has to experience what I experienced from Linda M. Shick.
Normally I don't do reviews but when I saw what "Marion" wrote I had to respond. I found Linda and Carol to be compassionate and responsive to my situation. They helped get my bills paid and routinely called me to see how I was doing. My settlement was more than I anticipated and I thank goodness that I had an attorney that didn't give in to the insurance company and kept fighting to see I got the money I deserved. So if that makes her money hungry, I'm happy. My lawyer should want to get the most money possible and my case was settled without going to court.
Poor communication skills, condescending demeanor. This woman will only take cases if she thinks she will get enough money. It makes me wonder who else had the same things to say about her that she has to claim that she is "compassionate" on her website. Please consider another lawyer
When I got hurt, I didn't know which way to turn for help. My car was wrecked and I couldn't get to my doctor's appointments or take care of my kids. I hired Linda Shick. Her assistants were always there to talk to me and help me. They made sure I got my wage check and made sure my doctor's got paid. My case got settled pretty fast.
Linda and her team, when working on my case made me feel as though I was the only case they had to work on, with all my questions and concerns which were answered promptly and professionally I knew I was in the hands I needed to be in to settle what could have been a bigger diaster in my life then worring about what do I do next.
They are the best at what they do......
