Posted by Thea, a Child Support client, Flag
I have used Leslie Cohn's services on two occasions. Once, for child support modification and once for non-payment of child support order. He charged be around $3600.00 for the modification. I paid that fee in full. A few years later, I went back to pay for the non payment and he charged me $750.00. On my paperwork after court, it stated that I was to receive those monies paid back to me directly. After my ex husband paid the money back, I received a check for $3300.00, but did not get my attorney's fees back. The lawyer stated that normally he charges $1700.00 for that type of case and that the $875.00 for "attorney's fees" and the "50.00" for the "court fees" were the other part of that $1700.00 that I supposedly owed him but that was never discussed with me. I did not sign an agreement with him. I trusted him but will NEVER trust him again. He is the only lawyer that I've ever hired and has completely destroyed my faith. I even have a paper from the court that says those monies should come directly to the plaintiff, NOT the attorney.
