This lawyer took us for a large retainer. Did nothing to forward our case. Did not care if I was not satisfied. Was belligerent and unethical. Sticks to retainer being non-refundable. Forgets whose money it really is.
Most lawyers are good and decent people, who care about their client.
This lawyer, sadly, is not one of them.

Very shady and untrustworthy. I paid a large retainer, and when I no longer needed his services, he claimed that the retainer was a "non-refundable deposit." I went on to show me a blank form which declared that it would be a non-refundable deposit, which I had never signed and had never seen until that moment. After getting the Georgia Barr involved, he finally gave me an itemized bill which somehow totalled 80% of my retainer, though he had shown me no proof of work until that point.
