This attorney relies on his paralegal to handle things and she is completely incompetent and unprofessional. His paralegal has excuses for everything she fails to do correctly and even blames the attorney's assistant who she says is the attorney's wife to try and cover her incompetence. Even the letter sent to me that this attorney was no longer going to represent me was probably written by her and it was filled with lies. This attorney's signature was at the bottom of this letter so that proves to me he did not believe his client and question what was going on in his office, so he is a very poor attorney indeed. If you want to pay attorney fees to retain a paralegal to represent you then this would be the law office for you. I suggest you get a "real" attorney to represent you, this law office is a stress filled stroll through crazy town.
Mr. Hyde met with my wife and I several times and offered us numerous options to address our problem. He did not charge for the consult and offered us a payment plan to help with the costs. His paralegal took an endless amount of time with my wife who is ill and was unable to complete most of the paperwork on her own. Good honest local attorney who sincerely cares about his clients.
I was mislead by Mr. Hyde from the beginning. I was told he could do things that later he denied saying and after six months of calling and asking his OBNOXIOUS secretary for information and was told every time he was to busy or in court and DID NOT want to listen to me I would then give up and hang up. After six months of NOT getting a call back from him I used a different phone and made an apt to speak to him. I showed up just to be told he was in court. Which I didn't believe as when I pulled up to his office someone was just leaving. I told her He could call many times to NO AVAIL, I NEVER GOT A CALL OR ANY INFORMATION AT ALL!
The attorney was great at the initial consultation, however after we made our final payment, his response to our questions and concerns fell to almost zero. We were not even represented, in court, by Mr. Hyde or his associate. The trustee had questions that we could not answer, and we did not have the attorney, who we paid dearly for his services, for needed help. Mr. Hyde's para-legal was extremely rude, gave inaccurate information, and caused delays because of giving us bad information. In a very difficult time for us, the attorney and his helper added to our problems, instead of solving them.
