I choose Mr. Seckel to be my lawyer because he was local and saw decent reviews of his law firm. My case, I feel was easy enough. I just wanted child support and reimbursement of day care expenses. However, he was completely incompetent. After going to court, my ex was able to lower his child support by half without being represented by his own attorney. In addition, I had to suggest to Mr. Seckel ways to make things more difficult for my ex, such as proof of work search and obtaining the child tax credit due to low child support payments. I eventually became tired of paying for court dates in which nothing favorable came from them. Finally, I am still paying him even though my ex was able to reduce his child support by half without representation as mentioned before! What a joke!!!
Roman provided his attorney services to me with the utmost professionalism in a very time sensitive eviction case. He kept me informed every step of the way and we communicated flawlessly to ensure the case went just as planned. As a landlord, this is exactly what i needed. I would and likely will hire Roman Seckel again for any legal work i need done in the future. Thanks again Roman.
I would highly recommend Roman's legal services without hesitation. My experience with Roman was based on a post divorce decree matter. He stepped into a case that was not originally his and immediately understood the nuances and the difficulties in dealing with the parties involved. Roman truly had my best interests at heart and was willing to do what it took to make sure I was taken care of. He provided great comfort to me in identifying realistic goals and methods for me to achieve exactly what I needed to with a favorable outcome. His communication was outstanding and I had no doubt that the ball was being carried, not dropped. Roman is extremely competent and effective, but maintains an honorable character that is quite refreshing in this profession. I hold him in the highest regard and recommend him enthusiastically!
I have know and used Roman's services for nearly three years now. Since the start of my business, Roman has been a partner in my success. What I value most is Roman's sound advice and perspective on my situations. Roman handled the incorporation of my company, and gave me several options on how involved I wanted him to be and what aspects I could do myself. During the year, I encounter situations which I like to have a second opinion on. This is where Roman has proven to stand out among the rest. Roman looks at my situation and provides me options and perspectives on what actions we could take along with the results, good or bad, that could come from those actions. On two different occasions, Roman has saved me both considerable time and money. The first occasion, a contractor who was suppose to complete work for me continued to not show up and then refused to return my deposit. Due to the amount, Roman advised to me take some steps myself and advised me what to do as it would almost cost more to attempt to collect it from the contractor than what he owed me. His advice allowed me to get my deposit back. A second situation, a fellow business owner made some damaging and slanderous comments regarding my business. I, of course, wanted to immediately file a suit, but after listening to Roman's point of view and his advice, a simple letter completely changed their actions. Within a few days I had a letter of apology stating that his comments was false. Roman is a tremendous lawyer, and even better person who looks out for my interest.
