I hired Jolyn to help with a child custody case. The opposing party emailed and called her upwards of 23 times in one day. I was billed for this. She does not respond in a timely manner. As others have said, she gives little to know response, charges for reading emails, and sends the bill. I am very disappointed with the outcome of what should have been an open and shut case. I feel that she intentionally drug out the case with little regard to the safety and wellbeing of my child, in order to have more billing hours. I now have another lawyer to finish what should have been done almost two years ago.
Ms Wilkins kept me informed constantly, and if I had questions I would email her & usually get same day response. When my husband & his attorney tried to intimidate & "legal fee" me into submission I was ready to give in & give up. Ms. Wilkins pulled me up & gave me back my self confidence
Did not finish filing case court orders to get what was awarded and did not even notify when court hearings were. Billed for underling staff and did not try to get anything from the spouse. Not sure she even read documents. I still have not recieved a penny from the divorce. Did not communicate well or fight for my assets.
I used Ms. Wilkins for my divorce and she did an excellent job. My wife's lawyer was a "bear" and Ms. Wilkins handled him very well. I felt she had my back the whole way.
Jolyn Wilkins does not take a priority in communicating with you as the client. You can leave her all the messages you want, but will not hear back from her...except via mail with a bill. DO NOT USE THIS LAWYER!!!!
