I hired the lawyer who ran the law firm Bartnik was working in for my divorce eleven years ago. He summarily accepted my case and then dumped it onto Mr. Bartnik whom I had never met (this lawyer was a waste of money as well as he was very unethical in my son's personal injury case - took an extra $500 out of settlement because he felt it deserved since he felt his signed agreement regarding his compensation was "too low")
I knew more about divorce proceedings and negotiations then he did, he spent most of his time discussing golf with my ex-husband's attorney, I had to remind him whom it was that he worked for several times, when he sent me an agreement giving my ex-husbands mother and father his visitation rights while the ex was out of the state of Maryland with a sign here and return sticker on it, I finally had enough and fired the idiot before he could do anymore damage (missed court dates -had to call the court myself to find out the dates - some of which had passed, etc.) . My new attorney had to finally threaten him with filing a complaint of incompetence to motivate him to remove himself as my attorney of record on my divorce. He's a hot mess - steer clear!!!!

Going pro se is better than having Mr. Bartnik as your counsel. I am having to spend a lot of time and money undoing his disservice. He provided little to know guidance in preparing for the divorce trial. He was unresponsive to request for information. He had me show up at the wrong court twice. I was required to undergo an evaluation and when the trial came, he turned to me and asked, "Did we ask for one on the spouse?" His arguments were ineffectual.

Great communication, listened and affirmed the issues. Helped me understand all positions and the law. Keith was excellant at dissescting opposition to get to the real issues and followed up with direct questioning that turned the court's decision to our favor. Thanks Keith! I have used Keith on 3 occasions and will continue to retain him when I need an attorney.

I had been to two other attorneys for my personal injury case before I found Mr. Bartnik. The other attorneys said liability was diffucult and they were not interested in taking my case. When I met Mr. Bartnik, he said he was happy to review the facts and see what he could do for me. Not only did he take the case, but he was able to get it settled for a substantial amount. Mr. Bartnik worked with me to see through the facts and establish the truth. He kept me informed, and always responded quickly to my calls. I have recommended him to a number of my friends and family, who have also been completely satisfied with his work, not only in personal injury, but divorce cases as well. I recommend you call him to discuss your case, then make your decision.

This lawyer represented me in a divorce case with a child. He did not give me the service I expected. My separation agreement he drafted and I revised was ultimately filed and it is wrong. He tried not to show up in court when he felt all matters was resolved. Please think twice before you hire this lawyer. My son is 4 years old and I am still fighting child support issues. I paid him over $4,000.00.
