I needed help with a guardian/custody case. After asking around, we were directed to Mr. Deslauriers. Mr. Deslauriers handled my matter quickly and skillfully. While it was occasionally hard to reach Mr. Deslauriers (who wants a lawyer that's scared to go to court?), he always returned my call or sent me a letter in response. I was satisfied with the outcome and with the rate that he charged.
I was not happy at all with the service I received from Frank Deslauriers. He hired him because of his reputation for helping women. My ex had a very good attorney and wanted one as well. The day we met he seemed very gung ho for my case and said he would be diligent. Well after I forked over my money the communication stopped for months. I find him very unemotional and he appeared bored at what I had to say. Don't get me wrong I am sure attorneys hear the same things over and over again, but I was not pleased. It was virtually impossible to get a return call and when I did speak to him he was always quick to tell me what a moral person he is and how diligent he is. I worry about people who have to tell you all the time how great they are. The case dragged forever and I did ok in the end, but what bugged me the most was he told several lies in court. I hate to say that but much of what was said on our side was not true. I believe a person should tell the truth in court and our side did not on some things. I was tempted to stand up and tell the judge some of the stuff he said in court was untrue. What happened was it made a tough situation with my ex even worse because I knew we were lying. Never again.
I don't know if I ever met an attorney like Mr.Deslariers. He has one thing going for him, he does remember the particulars of a case very well. However, the problem is there is never any logic in his arguments. As I sat watching him argue my case, even I had trouble figuring out where he was going with certain things. Needless to say, we did poorly. A few years later, a friend of mine ended up in a case where he was the opposing attorney against her. The lies and dirty pool played by Mr.Deslauriers were shocking. I never have been more turned off then by what I witnessed that day concerning law.
