I hired Shawn and Alisha almost 5
years ago. I have a very ugly child
custody/disestablishment of paternity
case that believe it or not is STILL
pending to this day. I even went to jail
on false allegations, and all Alisha said
was: "I understand your frustration". I
have had over 15 court appearances in
the last 4 years on which Shawn or
Alisha would not show up, respond to
my calls, emails or requests for
meetings. On the day of the FINAL
magistrate hearing, they send me an
unknown "attorney" to assist on their
behalf because they had relocated to
Indiana and he was completely
CLUELESS on the facts of the case!!!!
That attorney was Tyrone Watson. Mr.
Watson advised me that Shawn HAD to
keep in contact with me. That he would
contact Shawn and let him know about
our issues. I never heard or seen him
I called and emailed without response
for several months until last month, I
received an unexpected email from
Shawn saying that our account was
delinquent!! I was fortunate enough to
have ALL my copies of ALL payments
submitted (which I never received
receipts for) and scanned and emailed
back to him and he miraculously
responded saying we STILL owed him. I
had to make an Excel breakdown sheet
to show him we had paid him in FULL
and after that, I never heard from him
again. It makes me wonder if that was
the reason why he wasn't proceeding
with my case and/or responding to my
emails and calls. The clerk of courts
said our case was still pending
because my attorney, Shawn Rountree,
never submitted some needed
paperwork. My case is STILL PENDING,
my daughter is suffering, I have paid in
full, I have an upcoming court
appearance on January and Shawn
does not respond to my inquiries. What
am i going to do???? Someone please
Shawn handled my case with care and made sure I was informed during the whole process. I got a good schedule for my kids and things are great.
The tandem group of Shawn and Alisha could not be worse. They will promise you the world when you hire them but once paid they will stop responding or take any interest in your case at all. They will file things on your behalf without your knowledge, they generally don't know what they are doing and care very little abut your wellbeing as a client. Eventually once fully paid they simply disappeared altogether abandoning my open case and forcing me to hire another attorney and pay all over again. They did not even have the professional courtesy to communicate with my new attorney or return her calls. They are self serving in every sense of the word and only care about getting paid. Don't make the same mistake I did.
Shawn was very reliable and answered all my questions in a reasonable time.. I went to see several lawyers about a child custody case with my son.. When I met Shawn I immediately felt that he was the one to represent me.. I am very happy with him and I am very glad that I chose him.. He actually went to battle for me to get me extra time with my son..
Shawn Rountree helped me resolve a child support modification issue which had been ongoing for over 2 years. Mr. Rountree is the third attorney I hired to help. The previous attorneys did not stay on top of my case causing it to drag on and on until I finally found Shawn. Shawn knew what he was doing, was familiar with my case and the courts. He handled things in a timely and efficient manner bringing it to a satisfactory conclusion. Resolution of my case included a reduction in the amount of child support and proved overpayments so that I now have a credit on my account with the state.
