Hand him your retainer and say good bye. You will be cursed at, ridiculed, talked down to and have him act like you are a total idiot. Asked for a refund of my $3000.00 retainer after him cursing and talking down to me and he refused to give my money back.. THE MOST INCOMPETENT ATTORNEY I HAVE EVER BEEN IN CONTACT WITH. VERY SORRY I ASKED HIM FOR HELP and AFTERWARDS, KEEPING MY MONEY WITH DOING ANYTHING TO HELP........................!!!!

Mr. Ford took my money to represent a criminal case. He did return my phone calls but would scream at me on the phone. Once, while in a store, he was screaming so loud at me, you could hear him through the phone and I was asked to leave the store. He also failed to show up at more than one hearing saying he didn't know about them. At that point, I fired him and also requested my money back. After several certified letters to him, (which he never responded to) I contacted the Florida Bar and filed a formal complaint. They advised me what to do, I did it and nothing has been done. I guess being a lawyer allows you to legally steal and get away with it!

Patrick Ford took $3000.00of my money to represent me in a simple criminal case and did nothing but prosecute and accuse me instead of helping and defending me as I had paid for. He cursed and yelled at me of which I had several witnesses that heard him on a speaker phone for just asking simple questions that I needed answers to. I am not privy to legal procedures and simply needed someone to help me get through this and had trusted him to do so. I wrote him and had asked that he deduct the monies used for his services and return the remaining amounts, as I would not allow anyone to talk to me like he had and wished to find someone that would help me instead of prosecute me. I have never heard back from him since and will be hiring another lawyer to help get my monies back.
