I do not recommend William Green
I hired William 1-6 months ago.
William handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
I had recently been the petitioner in my divorce against my wife who stepped outside our marriage, hit our children, hit me, and spent thousands of our money leaving us in financial ruin. I hired this law firm and started with a Jill Campos who started my divorce process. Jill seemed to do ok the process was slow and I didnt seem very important to them. Shortly afterwards she left the firm and my case was handed to lead coucil Will Green. I was given the assurance that everything would be fine and he would handle my case no problem. He did say he was a bankruptcy expert but has handeled many many divorce cases as well. He also promised to keep me at his associates rate of $200 per hour. Myself having no legal dealings in the past and never have had a lawyer before this sounded like a great thing to me. I am getiing the top lawyer in the firm on my case. Yeah big mistake!! I was advised to move out of my home and take my son when she assaulted me and start fresh some where new just be sure to stay inside of state lines. I did what I was told and moved out taking my son. Through no help on his part I managed to get TRO against my soon to be ex for both my son and I. I got him registered for school setup in church, a nice rental town house in a nice small town. We go to court for the temp order and I have 3 folders full of info regarding my exs spending, I have my step son ready to testify on my behalf and we end up on a court commishners list and thanks to my wonderful legal advise my son was taken from me given back to his dead beat violent mother and now I am in a rental and see my kid every other weekend!! No testimonys were used no evidence was brought up. I didnt even get to speak,! My lawyer was outclassed by her attorney and my son now has to pay the consequences. I also lost both TRO thanks to my top notch attorney who didnt come to my TRO hearing vs my wife telling me its unnecassry just tell the truth. Which I did but since her attorney was there they twisted the story and left me there to have to cross examine my own wife. I told the judge "Your honor" I do not know what to ask her, I dont even want to speak to her now I have to be my own lawyer? Needlees to say I lost my case. Then the TRO for my son I did get him down here for and I arranged the court house to provide a GAL. I thought I did what was needed. My attoreny tells me 1 hour before court he thinks he should not come since we have a GAL! I aksed him why and he gave me a story about a conflict of interest GAL is for my son not him. I said to him really 1 hour before court you want to pull this!. I get to court I find the GAL who says yeah you need your attorney here, and she wont even speak to me. She scares my son who tells her the bare minimum as he does'nt trust her, and why should he the last woman he trusted (his mother) hit him 3 times. My son doesnt cry like a baby and since he wasnt "injured" by wisconsin statue his testimoney is no help. So its up to my attorney to handle it. He makes a weak argument and we lose yet again. Now I have no TRO for either of us. My son was given back to his mother who is the cause of the divorce and still seeing her new man and I end up with this great insight "you need a fresh set of eyes on this" I said really that what you have to say. This was a slam dunk case in regards to who the victims are here and thats whay you come up with? I spent $2500 for a retianer on this firm and when I called to see what my baalnce was I have left no one returns my calls. I cant get Mr Green to respond in any way shape or form. I have to borrow money from friends as my credit is ruined by my ex to hire a new attorney as mine has vanished and has done nothing to help me. Weeks later I get a bill that I owe him over $1,800 still in legal fees. A guy I cant reach, who does'nt want to come to court, and when he does come does'nt use or argue to use our evidence, gave bad advice, wants more$!
