I hired Ms. Widener to defend me in a criminal case I was charged with. Having never been charged with anything criminal, I didn't know where to turn.. Lucky for me, after working with Miss Widener for 2 months, I realized I made a grave selection in my choice of Miss Widener. Not only did she miss several key opportunities to have my case dismissed, she repeatedly tried to get me to take a plea or blame someone else even though no crime ever occurred. She billed me excessively... every actual hour turned into 2 or 4 on her bill. Her lack of compression and skills translated into thousands in cost for me...A case that I was told would cost $25,000 start to finish became $10,000 before I even got to court. I highly recommend looking elsewhere when you're seeking competent legal representation...
