I hired Virginia (Ginger) Poynter in August 2014, she took money for container. After that, she became not responsive at all. I had to call many times, left many messages, voice mails. Then, she decided she didn't want to represent me any more and promised to refund my retainer. That was in early Dec. 2014. Four weeks passed, no refunded yet. I am wondering whether I could get my retainer back.
I had a very challenging and complicated divorce/child custody case. Ginger is a very thorough and understanding attorney who truly cares about her clients. She was able to work through all the difficulties of my case and get the outcome I was looking for. Without her dedication life would not be the same for me or my son. Thank you Ginger for all that you have done for us through this very difficult case.
In my opinion whats make the best attorney are: That "us" the clients feel like they care and they can honestly help us in our difficult situations, either minor or major whichever the case may be. I have had the pleasure of being truly blessed to have an attorney who sympathizes and shows compassion to my legal needs. Who is extremely family oriented and believes in helping others with a genuine personality. I have been through a life changing process and I couldn't have held out that one day it would be rectified if it wasn't for the support or guidance for my best interest and the patience my attorney have had. I highly recommend Ginger Poynter she is willing to answer all questions and very knowledgeable in her field. A strong lady who is determined and detailed oriented, firm and willing to fight for what she knows is the right side of the law. A woman who will; "get the job done!"
An excellent and experienced litigator and jurist. I highly recommend Ginger. She is helpful in every way, both in person and by email. Don't hesitate to contact her about your case. After contacting several other lawyers who seemed incompetent, I found Ginger to be very knowledgeable and willing to work with me.
I would like to take this opportunity to recommend Ginger Poynter and would give her a superior score. In addition to having a high degree of integrity. I have found her to have a tremendous drive and passion for her work and often has gone beyond that which I have experienced with other attorneys. She has been my attorney for approximately 7 years now and has been counsel to other members of my family where the cases involved such matters as felony charges, child custody and child support issues. She has handled every case with confidence and integrity. Her personal counsel has saved me from countless mistakes and many sleepless nights.
Mrs. Poynter, was great to work with. She guided us right through the law of events, and got us out on the other side, with all questions answered. I do recommend her services, especially if you have a teenager. Mrs.Poynter, was recommended to me by a friend who also used her office.
Ginger went above and beyond her duties as my lawyer not only did she do an amazing job but she is a wonderful person I couldn't have asked for a better person for the job
Great lawyer to deal with in every aspect. Very friendly and made all the steps of the process to go smoothly as well as the trial . I would highly recommend Virginia Poynter
I was referred to Mrs. Poynter by a former detective. I had a great experience with her. This was my first offense so I was very nervous and dubious to the court system and how things would work for me. She was very responsive to my emails and kept me in the loop as often as I needed her to. I got the outcome we had anticipated. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
I retained Mrs. Poynter after my arrest for criminal trespass and possession of a firearm on another person's property without permission - the latter charge of which is a new, and controversial revision of a long-standing law publicly opposed by the Alabama Sheriffs Association.
What Mrs. Poynter told me during my initial consultation is how my case proceeded when I went to trial, and so I was more than pleased with my representation in court. In regards to firearm violations - in my opinion - everyone should have adequate legal representation because of the nature of the offense, however minor the charge(s). I had excellent representation and would not hesitate to retain her services again if needed.
