I thought she would be good in my case as she comes off tough. She would send many letters to my ex's attorney, who would then send a letter back. Nothing, and I mean nothing was ever accomplished or agreed upon between the two. When I would call to voice my frustrations as to how my case was proceeding, I would get the cold shoulder from her assistant. I then sent an email stating my dissatisfaction, and was promptly dropped that day as her client. When you do not have an attorney that cares about your situation, or even thinks that you should have some say in your own case, the whole process becomes time consuming, expensive and very very stressful. They were unprofessional and uncaring, to say the least.
If you're looking for soft touch or emotional support, find a therapist. For hard legal decisions, Ms. O'Gorman's who you need. The process is expensive enough without lawyers charging for banter and small-talk. Ms. O'Gorman bills fairly and delivers intelligently and expediently for what she is hired to do.
Patricia comes across as abrupt and abrasive at times but I was not interested in chit chat. She handled my divorce case efficiently and professionally in a minimum of time and at a minimum cost.
Very cold and unprofessional. I was not able to participate in the decision-making of my divorce. Her assistant was extrordinarily rude. She hung up on me when I asked her if my divorce papers were completed. They were not, so I raised my voice and I was accused of harassment! Although I tried to fire her twice, I was too unsure of myself to do it since she contacted another person regarding my dismissing her and changed my mind. Client-attorney priviledge? She also asked me for information that I had provided her months earlier AT THE TRIAL!!! She and her assistant were so abrasive that working with them was as difficult as the divorce.
I would not recomend Ms. O'Gorman if you want any say in your case. It will appear as if you are being heard but in the end, deaf ears. Way to abrasive for me! Emotions are not allowed! I did not feel as if I was taken care of professionally. I often left her office feeling more confused and frustrated. Although she is fair with a payment plan.
Pat is aggressive, but communicates poorly and thinks the case is hers. She sometimes forgets that the client is the one making the decisions and has to live with any mistakes. She is not organized. However, I found her to be very fair with respects to billing. Her biggest fault is she dismisses the emotional factors in court.
