I hired Steven Garver November 2014 to handle a pending divorce case. He required a $7.5k retainer. He eagerly took my money and advised that I would be kept up-to-date. He assured me that he was knowledgable and capable of handling my issue. He filed court procedings without advising me or providing me with copies. When questioned, his staff was defensive and unhelpful. It took numerous requests to find out exactly what was filed. I was completly in the dark!
When his office finally sent me copies of the filings (after numerous requests), they also sent me someone else's information. His staff was confused and unhelpful. Requests for a call were ignored. I realized that I could not trust Garver or his staff. I advised him that I no longer wanted him to represent me. That is when the nightmare began. He sucked away my depsoit with silly emails and unuseful advice. He still hasn't given me documentation to terminate our agreement yet he has charged me! When all is said and done, I believe that he only should have billed me for 3 hours work. However, he kept $5.5k of my money! I feel cheated and I am very sorry that I trusted him. I would never hire him again. BE CAUTIOUS AND DO NOT TRUST STEVEN GARVER!
