I hired Tod as my divorce lawyer. For the full year I had him. He did absolutely nothing for me. Totally unprofessional. From day 1 til now. I have my son every weekend and thats it. I have tried to get into court to have that switched. So we finally get into court (8 months later) & he doesn't even bring up placement. I wouldnt recommend Tod to anyone. Hes not afraid to send out his bill tho. He just sent me a letter a couple days ago and he fired me!!!!! I should've fired him a long time ago. Just had too much money invested in him. He did it for me. Thank you Tod. He takes on way to many clients and has no clue what hes talkin about. Hes pretty good at not returning phone calls too. Bottom line. Just a waste of time and money. Find another attorney. You'll thank me later...
He didn't give me my paperwork until 4pm, and my case was the next day at 10am. He wouldn't let me take the paperwork home to review. I arrived early at the court house and met him there. I told him that I didn't agree to anything on the paperwork. He then told me that it was much too late, and he didn't know what the judge was going to do to me if we stopped the proceedings. He then told me that I had to sign the papers. I should have fired him then, but I didn't know that I could have. That's what I get for thinking that he was on my side.
I hired Tod Daniel over custody and child support issues. My elder son no longer lived with my ex-wife and my younger son split time with me and her. Tod was wishy-washy and didn't kept on having to look up the laws regarding different details. It took over 2 weeks on 2 occasions for him to even respond to my calls regarding the status.
Save your retainer and give it to someone who is professional and cares.
Tod was my second attorney in this matter. He took over quickly, his work was thorough, he or his office responded immediately to any questions, and his negotiating techniques were no-nonsense and effective. He is still helping me tidy up some matters that have arisen since the divorce, and his work is quick and complete.
He told us everything would turn out okay once in court and it turned out the opposite. He didn't tell us the judge didn't like him and had a grudge. It was a real mess. He was very costly.
