This lawyer was hired by my family to compile end-of-life documents such as will. Starting off, he was extremely late to our family meeting. He refused to discuss relevent details with the family in the family meeting. There were claims made that he was close acquaintances of certain family members, who I found out later, did not know him at all. I felt he was manipulative to the benefit of a family member who had been his long-time client and who did actually know him previously. He failed to follow through with specific requests of my dying family member and claimed not to recall an entire discussion on said requests. There were major delays in addressing this, and I had to threaten to find another lawyer, before they were addressed. I felt that certain aspects of his advice were faulty and I could strongly argue that it was not legitimate legal advice.
I have written a report that I am considering presenting to the state bar association. As I understand it, there is a four-year statute of limitations to file this complaint. I am so overwhelmed by the resulting issues that have arisen since the death of my family member and due to faulty advice, that I do not have time to file the complaint yet.
My experience with this attorney has been totally negative. The only thing positive I can bring myself to write is that, he presents himself to be pleasent and comes across at first as harmless.
