    • I do not recommend Thomas Kolpien.

    This attorney seemed knowledgeable and eager to help with my case. After retaining, he initially seemed to be somewhat productive in helping my case, however after a couple months, things began to not go in my favor, phone calls were not returned promptly, emails were not returned & I was billed for them anyway. A check payment was lost, and after a month passed, his assistant called for repayment. Overall this attorney did not seem to fight for my best interest. A few months after our pitiful agreement was signed, more problems began, so I reached out to him via email for advise. I NEVER received a response to that specific email, however I did receive a bill for it. I never paid the bill, but continued to receive it a couple more times. This attorney was a waste of retainer, time & do not recommend him to anyone.

    • I do not recommend Thomas Kolpien.
    • I hired Thomas 1-3 years ago.
    • Thomas handled my Child Custody matter.

    At first he seemed extremely knowledgeable, eager to work with me and ready to help me get custody. After hired though I only heard from him about payments for my retainer. Which I had paid when stated I would but somehow they misplaced two checks. Once he got the full retainer he charged me for reading and responding to emails, but never actually responded. Then the final straw was he told me that my case was taken care of, and I didn't hear from him in four months. By then I was assigned a court date for contempt of court. Turns out the court date where he was suppose to take care of everything he cancelled. Once in contempt I went to get a public defender. After this he all of a sudden called me nonstop trying to be my public defender. Has some nerve on that one. I fired him and am now looking for an Atty to fix all this. This time I'm researching and reading reviews. I'm told that the mess he made of my very simple case is deplorable, and professionals I've talked to thus far can not believe how bad he treated me and my case.
