Put everything in writing and make him sign a receipt for any of your notices or requests. You should be kept informed of how long the meter has been ticking, before the retainer is gone and he comes back to you for double that to finish the job. His bookkeeping is atrocious. After many requests for a statement of my account with him, I received nothing until well after he exhausted the retainer and he wanted much more to continue. All that he accomplished could have been done by anyone with a high school education. It was a slam dunk even before he got the case.
Mr. O'Brien represented me in a lengthy and complicated case that involved a large estate and a guardianship issue. He was very knowledgeable in all the intricacies of the law and put in a lot of time and effort to win the case. He is very persistent.
Dealing with Mr O'Brien was a horrible experience. I spent more time trying to communicate with him than getting results. Had to go to another attorney to get issue resolved.
I've been a client for 3 years and Mr. O'Brien has handled 4 cases for me in several areas of law. He won every case and was quite surprising in the courtroom. He is very fair and doesn't charge outrageous fees. I highly recommend Mr. O'Brien to anyone needing a terrific lawyer who truly cares about his clients. He handled a nursing home abuse case, a fraud and ID theft case, an estate & administrative case, an attempted murder and kidnapping and elder abuse case. He really knows the law!
