This Attorney handled my Divorce and it was the WORST experience of my life!!! He turned a simple divorce into a 2 year process… I had to constantly call him "which there is never an answer" I could only communicate with him through email and it usually took him weeks to reply. I saw him twice in the 2 years that it took to get my divorce finalized. He was very unprepared in court.. thank God that I had a Judge that was looking out for my best interest!!! Please stay away from Thomas Eppink!!! This is not personal, I just don't want anyone to go through what I went thorough with him. I trusted that mr Eppink would do his job and he did not. I had to speak with another Attorney to complete the necessary paperwork to enforce the Judges order. I never received my divorce papers from thomas eppink. When I tried calling him and emailing him about my divorce documents he never replied until months later, and by that time I had gone and picked them up myself. He mailed me a notorized copy of my "Financial Declaration" stating that it was my divorce papers. "How sad is that"!!! Please don't allow this man to ruin your life. He can make you believe that he is a confident attorney. Once he gets your MONEY.. you will not hear from him!! I feel its my duty to try and prevent someone else from going through what I went through..
I hated I needed an attorney, but having Mr. Eppink on my side and didn't nickel and dime me to death! Service was quick and efficient
Was retained the beginning of weekend, and discharged the ending of the weekend. But was charged as if work was actually performed. Also did not get back all of the retainer, nor the alleged work that was supposed to have been done on the case. Was told that he did work over the week-end and that's why I was billed. Was told he would ask for a continuance. but never contacted other attorney. So actually no work was ever done on the case, he just keep the money. And the Good ole boy system is letting him get away with it. Was retained on a weekend in the late evening, and services were terminated two days later the following work morning. If he asked for a continuance the other attorney did not know anything about it. The alleged work was not returned to the client. I was charged for the work, then the billable hours/work becomes the property of the client. No work was really done on my behalf, he just kept the money.
This was the worst experience I have ever encountered dealing with the legal profession. After retaining this attorney to assist with my legal matter, I had to literally manage and question all activity pertaining to my case to insure deadlines were met in a timely manner. I would not recommend this attorney to anyone in need of legal assistance. The experience with this attorney was nothing short of an emotional nightmare.
