Alex did not meet with me in jail before court. He never explained paperwork that he sent to me. It became very frustrating. He never seemed to have any strategy for defending me, and did not have a positive attitude about my chances in court. He did however hound me about money.
We would of done a great deal better representing ourselves in the court of law without Alex Reichert, he did NOTHING to help resolve the case, actually delayed the outcome which was NOT positive. Did not return phone calls did NOT show up for probation meetings as stating in agreement. Did NO background work into our case. HORRIBLE!! Never plead guilty and Never use Alex Reichert. Please don't let him into your legal issues, it has been a complete nightmare and speaking with other Lawyers about the specifics of our case, we were mishandled, misinformed, and misrepresented in the court of law.
We hired Mr. Reichert for representation in a severe felony case. Being new to the legal system, never hiring an attorney before, and the severity of the charges, I wanted to make sure we hired a very good attorney. I met with Alexander and he talked of his credentials, the organizations he is in, and how he has tried at the supreme court, etc. Though he was more expensive than the attorneys I contacted in bigger cities, I was impressed and plus he was local. So we hired him. Big big mistake. He seemed to not have time for this case, or did not care. It was quick money.....a very large sum of money and he didn't have to put much time or effort into it. His form of communication was sending copies of any documents he received, with no explanation. Does not return phone calls when we would call wanting to understand what the document means. Cancelled appts we made with him because we wanted to know where things are at, did NOT give copies of plea offers, so we don't know if there really ever was any other than the one signed. Through the little communication we did have with him, he would tell us something and then at court he would say something completely opposite. I could stomach the outcome of this case better if I felt he really cared.I could go on and on, but to sum it up, He did not care and is not trustworthy. A public defender would have given more time and energy.
