Pete was a godsend! I initially hired an attorney through my company prepaid legal service. When I met her I was excited at first because she talked a good game and sounded like she knew her stuff. However, when the case started my expectations went down hill as she would wait until the day of court to touch basis with me. She didn't prepare me on a strategy to win this case but would tell me that there is a chance I could lose my daughter, she said it was happening more and more in Fulton County and it almost seemed like she was preparing me to lose the case because she gave it little to no effort. I also think she was in over her head. When we went to court for the first time and I saw how little respect Fulton County judges had for her I was floored! It even hurt me and my daughter at first because my daughter's father got mother's day and two weeks in the summer instead of a reacclimation plan, in a different state even though he disappeared from my daughter's life and even in the face of the fact that my daughter never spent one night alone with him in 13 years!
The kicker was when I found out word for word she was discussing me with the other side and speaking negatively about me when I was her client!
I had zero faith in her and made the decision to switch attorneys to Peter Gross. This is where my case turned around! Pete fixed my motion so that it was legally sound. He sent my ex interrogatories that uncovered that he was an absent parent and he communicated with me regularly. I was never in the dark. Fulton County respects Pete as a great attorney. Above all, Pete was fair and fought like a bull dog for me. I not only won my case but I was also awarded attorneys fees!
I wish I'd hired Pete first but I'm so glad he was highly recommended to me. I do believe he was a gift from God who helped save our family from a lot of pain!
I was more than happy with the outcome of my divorce. Mr Gross's retainer fee, was actually less than 4 other attorneys that I had contacted first. The attorneys who were asking for a lesser rate, would have cost me significantly more over the full duration of the the case. I thought that I was going to be nickeled-and-dimed, for everything, but that was not the case. I received an itemized letter every month and the initial retainer fee, covered all of my attorney's expenses. My case seem to last forever, but that was because my wife was being extremely difficult and I was trying to divorce her while residing in another state, hoping I would never need to fly into town to go to court. In the end, I did not have to pay my wife NOTHING, when I originally offered her a cash settlement to dissolve our marriage. I am not a patient person, and I am sure Mr. Gross was more than annoyed with me at times, however, he stuck by me, to insure I received the best possible outcome. Maybe I should have hired him when I got married. LOL...maybe
