I had a misdemeanor marijuana charge while on first offender felony probation. I had no choice but to help the DEA catch heroine dealers. I complied and my case was supposed to be dropped. I hired him for $1500 even though the case was gift wrapped for him. He is so unorganized and careless. The DA and cops were ready to drop the charges. He never contacted my PO like he was supposed to. My PO didnt know I coopoerated so I got violated and served time in jail. The Sargent major I worked with did everything in his power to get me released, but not Paul. When I was released he told me all I had to do was community service and it woild be dropped. So I did 30 hrs. My court date came up and he was 1.5 hrs late. Instead I ended up getting a yr of probation $500 in fines and more community service. I also had to do a drug evaluation $100 and take a drug risk reduction class $400 so my licence didn't get suspended. The prosecuter for that case asked me after court if he was a public defender. I answered no I paid $1500 and he replied wow he didn't even contact me to tell me you cooperated with the police and it could have been dropped. He also told me I was better off with a public defender. He still made me pay my remaining balance of $1000 after all that and the cases could have been dropped if he just picked up the phone and made a few calls. He also gets annoyed when you call and talks down to you like you're stupid when in actuality he's the one. Very lazy and unorganized. All he cares about is getting paid not his clients.This man is an unorganized con artist. Avoid him at all cost. He's terrible. I think he didn't want the cases to get dropped so he could charge me for showing up to court.
