    • I do not recommend Donald Powell.
    • I hired Donald more than 3 years ago.
    • Donald handled my Bankruptcy / Debt matter.

    Had the same experience as the poster above. Tough to get a hold of, doesn't return messages and when you are able to get a hold of him you discover that he didn't give the entire picture unless you ask the right questions.

  2. Maybe knowledgeable but not good with clients!

    This is my personal experience with him so I didn't write on behalf of his other clients.
    He acts like you are the one working for him. He does not return calls in a timely manner. I had to call him 3 times and email him before he called me back. He does not remember anything because he does not care enough to pay attention. He is not volunteering helpful information at all. He does not give you the whole picture. If you get upset with him, he acts like you are a pain in his royal behind. He is a total egomaniac. After wasting 2 months of my time he decided not to work with me. He told me that he was not going to refer anyone even though he knows "everyone". Maybe because he is old, he is really not easy to work with. His ego gets in the way of being able to work with others. I'm unable to comment on his "professional skills" because we never got far enough to test them. If you want a lawyer who will treat you like you're inferior to him this is your guy. FYI my case was a really easy and straightforward case. But I must say that he was fair. He offered to return my entire retainer. That was good.
