So used Paul a few years ago for a simple divorce ,custody. Everything went well I never had to go to his office. Well this past year I wanted to change my custody agreement so I called Paul , everything seemed to go fine he did press me for payment a little more then before but hey no biggie. I gave him the few hundred dollars he wanted and now his phone is disconnected. It's been long enough that I don't think I'm gonna see the money.Small claims if I don't hear from him.
Paul J. Stacom is very dissapointing. My experience was very long, unpleasant and costly. It's been years working on my case and nothing has been resolved. I would never recommed Paul J. Stacom. He is a poor representative of what an Attorney should be. He was unresponsive, his contact numbers are disconnected and I feel he took my money and ran. He should never practice as an Attorney again. I hope this comment is posted so that others may know.
I was angry and upset when my wife of 25 years filed for divorce and later for custody because of man she was having an affair with. But Paul Stacom helped me to stay focused on the real issues and getting the best outcome for my kids. I ended up with de facto full custody and receiving child support from my ex-wife, and minimal court costs.
I fired Paul, and don't recommend him because he:
1) Offered little to no advice or guidance.
2) Rarely answered questions.
3) Deleted or lost crucial files.
4) Never had a game-plan, but was quick to go to court without a full understanding of the case.
5) Over billed
I was going thru different legal challenges and that is when I contacted Paul Stacom. Paul is knowledgeble about law system and was there to fight my cases for Child Support, Child Custody, PFA and Divorce. I wish him all the luck for his future cases.
I've met with many attorneys before coming to Paul J. Stacom. Most of them would rush me through expensive appointments, act like know-it-alls, and lose interest when it was clear that my case wasn't a shoo-in. Paul was the first attorney I met with that offered objective solutions to my complex case.
Paul was calm, patient and extremely attentive and responsive. I bombarded him with questions and he always remained professional and took great care to ensure that my queries were answered. Whether it was through a quick email or a phone call, Paul was always available and prompt whenever I needed him. He was there to answer all my legal questions, or just to assure me that things were in order.
I'm very thankful that I found Paul. Thanks to him, my life is a little better. You can't go wrong with him. I have and will continue to recommend Paul to anyone who needs an divorce attorney.
Paul was very professional in what was, at times, a sensitive situation. Although the other party was not always cooperative, Paul was able to protect my interests and submit my case to my satisfaction. I have referred his services to one co-worker.
