Would not recommend this attorney. During our divorce trial forced me to settle because he had some other place to be, He got very frustrated with me when i wanted to read the final divorce settlement. He said very frustratingly "just sign it is what i said it was" and would not give me time to read what i was signing I felt forced into signing without reading. He was also not prepared and didn't care about mine and my daughters future with regards to representing me in court. Do not use him if you want a favorable outcome.
I have been using Eugene Ferguson Jr. services for over 20 years now, I meet him while I was working in Woodhaven , Mi back in 1994, and have always been impressed with his skill and his abilities. He has represented me in many legal cases from divorce to closing on a business and even has help me with a living will. I have referred him to my family and to my closest friends. Over the years I have grown to count on his knowledge and his vast abilities regarding legal counsel. He has been very up front and honest with me through all my legal needs.
Gene handled my divorce which was finalized just over a year ago. My now ex-husband was not a doing what he was supposed to and Gene was able to obtain primary custody for me with joint legal. Gene explained the process every step of the way and was available whenever I needed him. If he was not available at that moment, he was very prompt to return a phone call or an email. Would recommend him (and I have ) to others going thru a similar situation.
Mr ferguson represented me in 2 charges of domestic violence and 1 assualt and battery went to trial and was found not guilty on all 3 charges had ppo on myself and mother He had those removed. My ex wife denied me parenting time he got me time with my child. We fought from 0 hrs to 3 hrs to 12 hrs a week to eventually 35% custody with over nights and this is still on going. I was under complete character attack during this process. Mr ferguson worked with me when my finanical situation was bad to not give up the fight for my infant daughter. Gene is always prepared, on time and very knowledgible . He got my home back by having my ex wife evicted. He retained majority of my assets and most importantly helped me gain decent custody of my infant daughter and we continue to persue more custody We overcame the constant mud slinging, unreasonable demands of my ex wife during divorce. Gene has become a friend along with that he has been my familes attorney for 20+ years. I strongly recommend Gene Ferguson.
Hired Mr. Ferguson for divorce. He was never prepared for our meetings and was never prepared in court. I gave him all of the required documentation and he told the judge he didn't have all the information he needed for court. The opposing attorney lied about my income, Mr. Ferguson knew it wasn't true and just said he didn't have the information. He had me sign court papers without explaining them to me. He just told me I had to do it. He did not fight for me in court. He never sent me an itemized bill....until after I hired a new attorney. Then he was charging me for work he did not do. He never provided me with requested documentation. When I questioned him about the itemized bill, he became very defensive and angry and refused to explain it to me.
I went through a divorce last year and used Mr. Ferguson as my lawyer. He failed to inform me of some of the details that were included in the agreement. Some of which included that my exspouse would still receive spousal support after she remarried. I am now going back to court with another lawyer to try to fix this so I dont have to pay for the next few years. If I can't get it changed I'll have to pay $30,000 to my ex thats already remarried.
