I had an excellent experience with this lawyer. I was given a reckless driving for speeding excessively. He was able to reduce my case from 5 points to "if I take a driver responsibility class, it will be 0 points." I actually had a lot of fun at the class and witnessed an accident right after (how ironic.) He (and his secretary) were very responsive to my needs, maintaining great professionalism the whole time.
I SAW HIS WEBSITE AND DECIDED TO HIRE HIM TO TAKE CARE OF MY NON-IMMIGRANT VISA BECAUSE OF HIS CLOSE PROXIMITY TO MY PLACE. AT FIRST HE WAS VERY NICE, HOSPITABLE LOOKS KNOWLEDGEABLE BUT WHEN HE STARTED WORKING ON MY CASE. I HAD A HARD TIME GETTING UPDATES, NO E-MAILS, NO RETURN CALLS FROM HIM. IT TOOK 9 MONTHS FOR HIM TO BE ABLE TO FILE MY PAPERS THAT'S WHY IT GOT DENIED. IT SEEMED LIKE HE DOESN'T KNOW THE IMPORTANCE OF TIME, MONEY AND DREAMS FOR PEOPLE LIKE ME WHO JUST WANT TO WORK IN THE US AND SEND MONEY TO OUR FAMILIES IN THE PHILS. MY BIGGEST MISTAKE IS THAT I TRUSTED AND DEPENDED ON THIS GUY! PLEASE TO PEOPLE WHO WANTS TO HIRE THIS LAWYER THINK A THOUSAND TIMES OR ELSE YOU WILL BE SORRY.
I hired Mr. Stacer for my license restoration case ($1200) and he didn't even bother to show up. The only reason I had him as my representation was that a friend recommended him. He is quite personable, yet I should have been wary when he failed to show for a previous appointment. I realize that he may have been busy, but upon my actual case that he should have been present for, that I paid him for!!!!! He didn't even show up! Instead he sent another lawyer that operated out of the same building as a stand-in. I had never met the other lawyer, the other lawyer knew nothing of my case. I very well may have failed my hearing (in which case I have to wait no shorter than another year!). So, essentially I represented myself as I had to make this other attorney aware of the particulars in the middle of the freaking hearing!!! I still have to wait another 2 weeks to a month to find out if I "passed" the hearing, even if I did it was only because of my own testimony. The representation was just shy of useless. I recommend anyone other than him, except Barton Morris, who is equally useless.
I wished i had check up on this lawyer before i hired him. He does not return e-mails or phone calls. Leaves you hanging in the dark.
Andrew Stacer is very charming but completely ineffective. I feel he wasted a lot of time and drug my case on much longer than necessary. And in the end I was not satisfied with the outcome. Do yourself a favor and hire somebody else to represent you.
