My experience with this attorney revealed that all he is interested in is money. He has no interest in what he has promised the client he will do for the fee paid. He does not keep his word. He did not return phone calls, ever. There was no interaction with him once he received the money, except to send you a bill for more money, after a few contacts with his office staff. trying to get him to do what you hired him to do in the first place. A favorite tactic of this attorney is to attempt to scare you by threatening to withdraw if you refuse to pay more for unrendered services. In my opinion the practices of this attorney are unethical. If you want an experience from hell, hire Scott Schlegel, and afterwards you will have to hire someone else to complete what he was originally hired to do
I know I picked the right lawyer. He has consistently given me legal advice that is tempered with honesty and won't proceed with things even if they are legal when he knows generally it would be a waste of time or money in front of a judge. I don't feel as though i am being nickeled and dimed to death. I also feel I am getting bang for my buck. He listens to his clients which I have found to be a rare quality in a divorce lawyer. He is the utmost professional and when the other lawyer in our case was not being professional, he simply took me his client and left the room. He and his paralegal are very responsive, up to date on their knowledge, and keep me informed. I would most definitely recommend Mr. Schlegel as a lawyer and I have when people have turned to me for advice on who is good in the family law arena.
Mr. Schlegel is honest and professional. Although my divorce was amicable for the most part, I like the fact that Mr. Schlegel took the moral high ground and always considered the best interest of my children as well as myself.
I would recommend Mr. Schlegel to anyone.
