    • I do not recommend Michael Hendrickson.
    • I hired Michael more than 3 years ago.
    • Michael handled my Speeding / Traffic Ticket matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    He didn't show up to court, was annoyed that I didn't remind him to go to court and begrudgingly refunded 25 percent of my retainer.

      Lawyer Comment:

      This is a gross distortion of the facts. In fact, no court was involved, but rather two separate administrative hearings on these ticket several weeks apart at the DC Bureau of Adjudication before a hearings examiner.

      I agreed to represent this client at a cost of no more than two hours of my professional time. With her phone calls, emails with questions and documents forwarded for my review prior to these hearings, she actually consumed a minimum four + hours of my professional time, including more than two hours for the first hearing which I attended in her behalf and in which her first ticket was dismissed. The second hearing several weeks later which I inadvertently missed, was essentially a repeat of the first and also resulted in a dismissal of her ticket and she clearly incurred no detriment whatsoever from my nonappearance.

      Nevertheless, after reviewing the matter, I decided to refund (in no way "begrudgingly") her 25% of her advance fee for the two hours which she had had paid me and which I now see was a mistake on my part as she clearly deserved no refund at all (in light of her petulant, factually distorted, and misleading review).
