    Not for family law / be wary

    Not a family lawyer / divorce/ custody etc.
    He will charge you much much more than the average atty.,
    Yet receive the same/ or lesser value.
    Extremely unprofessional . Had to hire another atty to "fix" the mess pm made .
    Perhaps for business matters , that may be his forte, sueing people. Otherwise you will have a mess, with a huge bill. His interests are himself , Not his client.
    No answer from him is ever precise. He will fix later, etc.. 10k in 3-4 wks and the client is worse off.
    Any other atty could have handled our case much better! ,
    Another one did. At 1/4 of the cost.
    A peacock, but all show, did not perform, pm piddled out. We learned when people rolled their eyes during the case, at mention of his name, and issues,. Including his staff.
    Quite regretful experience .

    Peter John Mackey’s response: “I am fairly certain as to the identity of this anonymous former client. He hired my firm to represent him in a divorce proceeding and we procured a great result. The issues were: (I) what portion of his pension was a marital asset and subject to equitable distribution; and (ii) imputing income to his wife for the purpose of calculating alimony because the wife had left the husband for another man and was intentionally under-employing herself. However, this client was very bitter as to the divorce and did not agree with the court's ruling. So, he apparently decided that he would thus not to pay my firm for the trial. We withdrew from further representation and this client then engaged in a letter writing campaign directed at me, wherein he, as you can surmise from the tone of his above comment, used profanity and less than respectful language. As to the fees, it does cost more to retain an experienced and trial-seasoned lawyer, one who wins most of the time. We have been in business for over 25 years and have won hundreds of hearings and complex high-end divorce trials. Unfortunately, when one represents so many people in divorce proceedings, there is always someone who did not get exactly what they wanted from the court and looks to blame others.”
