I hired Mr. Drouillard after my divorce was finalized. He handled a number of issues for me at the same time, including several false accusations of child abuse filed against me by my ex-wife. All issues were resolved in my favor. Thank you for your outstanding work!
Chris was the third lawyer that I hired to gain full custody of my son. The two lawyers before him failed but Chris won. We had a trial and Chris was prepared with an extensive knowledge of the law and facts of my case. He listened to me and used the information that I gave him. I highly recommend his services to anyone seeking a top-notch family law trial attorney.
I called Chris Drouillard for a price and he quoted me at $1500 which I declined. He called me back within 5 min and said "I'll do you for 1000", sounding unprofessional and desperate. I made a BIG MISTAKE and hired him. When I met with him he asked for the money immediately and feeling pressured, I payed. After that he had free reign to be short with me. He asked me few questions, was very short with me then acted in a hurry and booted me out within 15 min. I'm quite sure he wasn't busy with work when he practically begged me to hire him in the first place. He barely let me talk at all! He got what he needed and insisted that the next time we me was at the trial. Now I don't have much experience with lawyers but the two that I've had, and based on other peoples experience, I realized I was getting hustled. Too late. He showed up looking hung over with a beat up briefcase. Of course he had no defense because he never heard me out and knew nothing about me. His closing argument sounded like that of a high school speech class. He stuttered and stammered and there was nothing I could do at that point. After the trial he wanted to hear nothing from me. I had a lot to say and he actually said "don't talk" in a cocky manner!. I told him the results weeks later which he could care less about. I said "that's it?" and said that I would leave a review about our experience. I didn't even have to tell him I thought it was a horrible job...he knew. He threatened immediately that he would turn around and call me a drunk liar and disseminate information about my case! He even said he would sue me for slander!!! But he knows that's not possible because I'm telling the truth and if you're reading this review then you know that never happened! He doesn't do his job and just tries to get your money; then it's too late. I'm trying to help those who were in my situation to know that there are people like this out there and to be careful.
Mr. Drouillard represented me in a parenting time case, I was concerned for my childs safety when in the care of his father.
I am 100% satisfied with the out come of my case.
Met with me promptly, identified issues in the case and went to work. He did what was promised and was an excellent communicator.
