I hired this lawyer for a simple case that I started in small claims. He missed deadlines with the small claims court and lost the case. He tried to fix this with an appeal to a higher court and made the judge so mad she threatened to personally fine him!!! He failed to return phone calls so many times I lost track. He was rude to my wife when she tried to call when I was in South America and not able to call. He blamed both judges for his failures. He blamed opposing counsel for his lack of preparation. He blamed me for his problems negotiating. In the end he volunteered to give me all my money back I had paid him to represent me. I should have gone to the bar association about his behavior during this case. Pick any other lawyer.
