Posted by a Child Custody client
We hired Mr. McSpadden in 2006 to handle child custody/child support case. We did the legwork of drafting a parenting plan. The only thing Mr. McSpadden did was to appear in court one time to have an extension granted to our case, and that was because he had not been active in getting information from the other party. Because of a lack of action on Mr. McSpadden's part, we ended up getting served with a countersuit from DSS. We were forced to hire (thankfully) another attorney who turned out to be very competent and proactive. However, we were not able to recover any of the $2000.00 retainer that we paid to Mr. McSpadden for a one time court appearance.
