Myself, my children, as well as my case as a whole, were blatantly not priorities. The only thing I should have taken from the initial consultation is his explanation as to how busy he is. He was not even my lawyer, someone else from his office was, and I wasn't made aware of that until a half an hour before leaving for court. It would've been nice to know who my real lawyer was going to be before going to court, or, here's a thought, before I handed over my retainer. They showed up to court nauseatingly unprepared, and no one took the time to prepare me, either! I mean, this was my children and my finances that I was dealing with.
Take heed to what the person who posted, "Look Elsewhere", said. They are exactly right. I didn't retain a lawyer just to have someone else in my life play games with me, and make me feel terrible for trying to communicate. I doubt you are either. There are a multitude of lawyers in the area for you to choose from; "Look Elsewhere."
Hired Jay for a child custody case. First, he did not do as he stated that he would during our consultation. He talked the talk but when it came time didn't walk the walk. I told him what I wanted, what the papers were to say and Jay just didn't listen, did the minimal effort and did it half ass. Second, he never kept me informed of my case. I had to call continuously and once I finally got to speak with him, he was rude and brought up personal matters of his life why he didn't return my phone calls. I don't care about your personal life. This is your job. This is what I paid you to do. People at my job do not care about my personal life, they want the work done. Which brings me to my last point, he NEVER returns phone calls. I have called three times in two weeks and still haven't received a phone call back. You will literally have to call him multiple times to get him to call you back. I would suggest looking elsewhere. Jay tells you what you want to hear but doesn't come through. Just talks a lot of game.
Mr. Clothier is very knowledgable and stands by his word. He is a great person and fantastic Lawyer and brings everything to the table. I have refered 5-7 people to Jay and all have been very pleased with their outcome.
