First of all…. The person who interviewed me for the PTD program asked more question about my situation than Kent did the entire time he handle my case, that person even showed more interest and concern about the events in my case. Second, Kent told me I do not have to plead guilty, coming to find out; to get on the PTD program I have to plead guilty, first breakdown of trust. Third, I felt completely in the dark about what is going on with my case, even from the beginning, whether I have a strong case or a week case, was any rules broken, or procedures not followed, what are my options on the case, what course of action I should take, what documents have been filed or how my case would play out in the court room. I felt I was walking to my death; I had no reason to say I was confident in the way my case was being handled by Kent Starr, or any reason to believe he knew what he was doing. How can I say if he is knowledgeable about my case if he has not conveyed how he would defend my case. After multiple attempts to contact Kent, when I do if I do, I get an air of annoyance from him. I would not recommend this Lawyer to anyone.
I currently reside in Chicago but I had a felony charge in Dallas that was threatening my career and possibly, my freedom. I had consulted with a number of attorneys and most of them were telling me that I would have to fly back to Dallas and turn myself in and appear in court in person. A few had stated that there was a chance I would not have to go to Dallas, but there would be significant costs to make that happen. Kent Starr went over the details of my case and was very up front with me. He laid out what his plan was, quoted me a set price and within days of hiring him as my attorney my case was dismissed without me having to leave Chicago. His rate was very competitive and he did exactly what he said he would do. It can be very stressful when trying to find the right attorney to trust and I feel very fortunate that I hired Mr. Starr. Based on my experience with Kent Starr, I would recommend him to anyone looking for a confident, professional and knowledgeable attorney.
Kent has a very outgoing and professional attitude. When I had some doubt that I might not win my case he made me feel at ease. He is very educated and detail oriented. He knew every aspect of my case and studied the video tapes. I would recommend him to anyone. Thanks Kent!
I had a very complicated case, that no other attorney would accept due to the involvement of the defendents. After all said and done Mr.Starr was able to receive sum justice!!
Mr. Starr was very responsive and informed me of the situation, consequences and how he was going to proceed. I felt he was very effective. I compared notes with other people in my situation and I realized that I had a very qualifed and responsive attorney.
He's a very good lawer i wouldn't use nobody but him.
