Not having much money, my wife and I trusted this Lawyer to help us. He told us everything we wanted to hear, but as our court day approched he became distant and didnt call us to keep us up to date or informed of anything.
The day before court we reached him and he assured us he would be right there with us and everything would be just fine. Day of court my wife and I were so lost as to what to do, our names were called and we walked in the court room alone, not knowing exactly what to say or how to speak to the judge....and our lawyer ( that we paid for with the money we didnt have much of.) was a no call no show.!
when all was said and done in the court room, we walked out. and was finally approached by theis Lawyer asking us what happened!! then hadd the nerve to tell the partie we were going to court against our plans of action for a later court date!So basicly we gave money to a so called lawyer to not tell us anything, not file any papers and not represent us, and in my heart we should have recieved our fee back..this man was not there for us at all, he took the money with a smile and walked away without a fight!
