I hired her to draft my separation agreement about 5 months ago. When I hired her, I told her it was very difficult for me to communicate with my husband and that I wanted to finish this in a speedy manner. She assured me she would draft the agreement as soon as she got detailed information from me, so I thought paying $2,500, paid upfront, would be worth it. However, she was never as timely as she promised. First of all, the separation agreement draft she sent me was basically a form agreement with very little modifications; she didn't take time to take my personal situations into account and write them into the draft. Second, she took as long as 3 weeks--and I'm still waiting--to respond to some simple questions I asked. The first time I complained about the delays, more than a month ago, her secretary said she would email me and explain. I never got that explanation nor apologies from her. The second time I complained, I asked for a refund. It took her several days to respond, and when she responded, she stalled by saying she would consider my request and email me back. It's almost a week, and I haven't received any response. When I first hired her, I explained my situation to her and let her understand how timing was important to me. She told he she would try her best. She did not carry out that promise. While I was waiting for her response, she even took a leave of several weeks without first notifying me of any possible delays. I was in quite stressful marital tensions and tried to contact her, but got NO response at all! The way she treated me was as if I'm the least important client. Once I paid the 2,500, it was as if I was moved to the bottom of her list. If she can't handle my case in a timely manner, she shouldn't have taken my case. After I asked for a refund, and when she herself knew she didn't have time to work on my case, she should've issue a refund immediately rather than making me wait. If you want a lawyer that listens well and tends to your personal needs, and communicate well and timely, she is NOT one.
She was prompt in communication and handled my case like a professional.
