Posted by Alan, a Civil Rights client,
I went to school with Mr. Streefkerk, so I naturally called him for representation. I faxed him my paperwork and we met for a consultation. My goals were to have my hearing date moved and to dismiss an illegitimate PPO that had been filed against me, with my main focus on getting court date moved. Mr. Streefkerk agreed that the allegations held no merit and ensured me it would be no problem to have the court date moved. We agreed on a price of $750, with no specific date established for payment. Mr. Streefkerk was subsequently unable to get the court date moved and I had to miss a vacation to attend my hearing. After this, I doubted Mr. Streefkerk's effectiveness as counsel and began questioning whether I should pay him to represent me in court. When there was no other movement on his behalf with my case and he began requesting money to move forward with anything, we decided to terminate our relationship. Since termination, Mr. Streefkerk has been extremly rude via text message and has sent messages to me such as "loser" and "deadbeat". I can assure you that I am neither. He informed me that he is very upset because I declined representation and he didn't make any money. I received a bill for $29 a couple weeks after our relationship had ended. I have since contacted other representation. My new attorney has much more experience than Mr. Streefkerk and was shocked that he was unable to complete a simple task, such as having a court date moved.
My final opinion is that Mr. Streefkerk lacks the experience to be effective/persuasive within the judicial community, is very immature in regards to business practices and should only be trusted to handle the simplest of duties.
