David Carlock is a GENIUS!!! He is unstoppable!! David is a huge advocate for doing whats best for kids and how to protect them. He looks at each case individually. You can tell David has an extensive experience with our legal system. He knows what to expect in court and how to best prepare his client for it. David does not sugar coat anything and is not afraid to fight for what is right. He is incredibly trustworthy attorney and I would recommend him to anyone!!
Going through a difficult divorce is hard for anyone, especially senior citizens. David Carlock was recommended by his peers. I respect David Carlock and associates at Carlock Ghormley. I felt he had my back at all times. David was compassionate, caring and concerned about my situation. Phone calls and e-mails were answered promptly. My late husband and David served on the Dallas Bar Grievance Committee in 1980. My late husband (he died in 1981) admired David Carlock. He felt David had a bright future ahead of him. He was right! After 10 years in a abusive marriage I wanted the best attorney possible to represent me. I don't have any regrets of having David Carlock as my attorney. I made the right decision.
I employed David Carlock for one year to represent me in a divorce and child support case. During that period I was passed off to numerous trainees within his organization. Each trainee required time to be orientated to my case. Each time I was charged for this, as well as a separate charge for Carlock to review their progress. After one year of excuses and claims that the Carlock/Gormley Law Firm was doing everything within their power to finalize and satisfy my case, I terminated them and hired a new attorney referred to me by a family friend. The new attorney finalized the divorce and child support in less than four months for about 30% of the fees charged and paid to Mr. Carlock. If you want to pay a premium for unreliable and passive legal representation, David Carlock is the lawyer to call.
Working with this person was a nightmare. He is verbally abusive, inappropriate, lacks common sense, and only cares about billing hours for substandard work. I am shocked there is no history of documented misconduct, as I personally witnessed numerous examples. The key word must be "documented" as I am sure there must be pending complaints to the Bar Association.
