I hired Joshua Bickman in April of 2015. I am following the Avvo review guidelines to explain what Attorney Bickman Failed to Do:
Failed to be organized. He asked me several times for financial items that I had already sent.
Failed to be compassionate. I am overwhelmed by the divorce legal process and have many questions. Mr Bickman would just tell me to " Be Quiet" instead of addressing my concerns.
Failed to articulate a convincing argument during mediation. I have a pre-nup with a clause that should have worked as a bargining chip. Mr Bickman failed to use it in our favor.
Failed to show up for a meeting. We had twice confirmed a strategy session meeting to go over what we would ask for or be willing to give in mediation. Mr Bickman did not show up! I was was there by myself with a blank notepad, heartbroken.
Failed to read the judges memo or order regarding the court fee for mediation. Instead of starting mediation, we used up valuable time (mediation has a strict time limit) to leave the court house and go to a store to buy a new money order. This made us look very unprofessional to the mediator and opposing counsel.
My feeling is Mr Bickman relied on past experience to just coast by, instead of spending the time necessary to be well prepared on an individual case basis. I was very disappointed with Attorney Joshua Bickman.

I hired Mr. Bickman to represent me in my highly contested divorce. His knowledge of the law and courtroom skills were excellent. he was always available by phone and text. Mr. Bickman charges a fair price considering how hard he worked for me. I will forever be indebted to Mr. Bickman for helping me navigate the most difficult time of my life and for getting me the results I deserved.

Mr. Bickman took me for a fool. He keeping my Divorce case open for stupid reasons to get money from me. Then to my final Divorce hearing there was no MSA (Martial Settlement Agreement). Now 6 months later my ex-husband is taking me to court again for modification since Mr. Bickman did nothing correctly! More money I have to spend on another attorney now. A divorce that should of been less than $3,000 is now costing me over $7,000.

After meeting with several lawyers in the Miami area, Joshua was the only one who could properly address all concerns and questions. He was experienced, kind and a relief to have on my side. He was always available when needed and I was very happy with the results of my case. I would hire him again as well as refer him to all family and friends.
