I hired Rolanda Dent to help me with a simple child support modification enforcement. I have a modification to my current child support and also back child support, referred to as arrears. All this was agreed upon in Mediation and signed by the court Judge James Lombardino. When my paperwork finally reached the enforcement division of the Attorney Generals Office of Child Support, they would only enforce the modified current child support, not the arrears portion or back child support that all parties had agreed upon. They told me it was worded wrong, my paperwork that is and I would have to go back to court to get it worded correctly to submit for enforcement. I talked to Miss Dent approximately three times over the phone and she told me it should be a simple fix to get my modification worded correctly to get the arrears submitted and start taking it out of my payroll check weekly. She only had time to talk to me while I was paying her $900 retainer fee !! The rest of the time I called for updates on my case I would get the answering machine or occasionally her secretary would take a message. This went on for about a YEAR, until I finally told her secretary I need to see her in person because did absolutely NOTHING to help me with this simple modification enforcement. I have given up trying to call this lady because frankly I don't think she ever cared about me as a person or a client and obviously now I know her specialty is not family law. Like I said at the start of my review, if you have a family law issue and you need real help with a real family lawyer, DON'T waste your TIME or your MONEY with this lady !!!!!!! Thank you for your time
If you are looking for someone that cares, has tenacity and is straightforward then look no further. Attorney, Rolanda Dent came into my daughters life and provided her the type of legal council that no one else wood. She took her time, she showed up, she was reachable and stayed the course. When there was no way out of no way she hung in there. The level of skill and knowledge to make your way in the court house was displayed on several occassions. I have to believe she was a God send. She worked with us financially and fairly. We cannot thank her enough. She is not a diamond in the rough. She is a gem. Thank you.
