Hired him for a divorce and custody case. I had to do most of the work. He did not prep me before going to court and when I asked questions about what to do and what was appropriate attire, he responded to wear something conservative. My only saving grace in that case was that my ex and his attorney were complete idiots and unprepared.

He came dangerously close to causing me to lose custody of my son. His assistant lost all of my information. He charged me 1500 dollars, which he said was a flat rate and he didn't charge by the hour, but then he did nothing, and then ended up firing me as a client with the reason that he was not able to contact me.............hello......his assistant lost my information, and when I would call, she was rude and said that I didn't need to keep calling because they would call me when they had further information. He seems like a great attorney on the initial consultation, but as soon as you pay him, his whole attitude changes. He almost ruined my whole life..........by almost messing up my whole custody case...........I only found out there was a pending hearing because after Chadband went to court to have a judge sign off that he didn't have to represent me anymore, I was served papers by a person that serves court papers. Worst attorney in Polk County. I pray that he finds a new career or that people read this and take it seriously and don't use him. He does not deserve your money, and he will not be supportive during the difficult time you are facing in a legal conflict.

We hired and paid him 2,500 dollars to file a custody case for our son regarding his daughters. He said 7 days he'd have them. He said he was fileing she would be served. A month later our son was served by her his office never filed. Said he was calling his private invistorgator never did. He told us to invistagate. He cancelled our first court hearing not telling us and said oh that was for visatation then ten months later we went to court he tried to cancel judge declined she had no lawyer and no witnesses our son had seven witness attend. Chadband told me to go home and take a valum he asked our son if her breast were real. She wrote and signed our sons name on a threat letter which she sent to the judge via email and chadband saiD the email was being checked and shed go to jail a total lie. At court he refused to call one witness for our son. Took him a week of our calls for him to say he gave her the children. He never gave our son any paperwor

Hired this attorney in a child custody/modification matter. He never returned my calls. His secretary was rude and unhelpful. When I finally met him for a hearing, he did not question my ex's testimony to the court, did not allow me to testify at the hearing and refused to introduce any evidence to support or defend my case. He was more worried about getting done with the hearing and going to lunch. He was rude, belligerent and did not seem to understand my case. I saw the other attorney look over at us several times with a look of "what?" It was horrible! Save your money. Use someone that knows the law and cares.

I used for a child support case. During the time leading up to the hearing I never heard from him during the mediation he was more worried about the comedian he was going to see that night. Spent most of the mediation playing on his phone. After the mediation was over he never sent me a copy of the final judgement, I had to go to the courthouse almost 3 months afterwards to get it myself. Just to find out what we had agreed on in mediation wasn't what was on the final judgment. HE IS ABSOLUTELY THE WORST ATTORNEY IN POLK COUNTY. You're better off representing yourself. At least that way your only a fool not a broke fool.
