I hired Jerry Summers to represent me in a DUI case. It dragged on for almost two years, fortunately for me, the arresting officer left the police department for a better job and the case was dismissed. Although I had a good outcome in my case, Jerry Summers was not the reason. After my initial meeting with Jerry in his office and going to court several times, he did not even recognize me in the courtroom on my last court date. I never got a call or reminder of court dates from his office, in fact I would always call the day before just to be sure I was still on the docket for court and in one instance, his office didn't even have my court date on his calendar for the next day, so if I had not called, he would not have been there for me at court. He and his office are very disorganized and I think he takes more cases than he can handle. Although he is a knowledgable attorney, my experience was that he does not take any time to research, study or review your case until he is in the courtroom on your trail date. I would prefer an attorney that stays in touch with me, takes a little bit of time for my case and recognizes me when I am sitting in front of him in the courtroom. I would not use him again nor refer him to a friend.
