Ms. Haigh represented me in a case for about $6000 in damages that was filed against me back in 2012. She has been working on the case since that time, as far as I knew. I am out of the country for months at a time . She filed an answer and counterclaim. I trusted her to handle the matter. I know cases take a long time to move forward. I returned to the country recently and suddenly had a notice posted that water to my condo was to be cut off due to a $25000 judgment against me. This week I repeatedly tried reaching her, was even waiting outside her office, she never answered my calls or emails.
Now that I'm aware there is a problem and I see the case history, I find out that she has been MIA on my case since early last year. There are sanctions against me for her failure to respond to discovery. My counterclaim was dismissed as punishment for her discovery violation. In the motion, the opposing attorney notes that he never heard from her after December. He filed a motion for summary judgment, then damages. She never responded or showed up. She never got in touch with me to tell me it had been filed but that she wasn't acting on it. She never withdrew from the case. She never contacted the court. As a result the $6000 suit has now become a default judgment for $25000 because it was entirely unopposed and the other attorney claimed $14000+ in attorneys fees.

When I needed her she was there...no matter whether it was business hours or not. Ive never had a more committed attorney.... She is the greatest ever. Thank you Lindsay for all you did for my family.
