Mr. Hempen talks the talk but can't walk the walk. He nor his office staff are organized. When emailing , with or without documents, I very seldom ever received a response. If I did, it would be a request to resend because of one reason or another. All responses were made by his office staff, which are not attorneys. This attorney does not return phone calls. He would continually confuse my case with other clients. He will not or is afraid of aggressive attorneys. He and his staff were continually making clerical errors. After requesting copies of specific records from his office files for over 9 months, he not his office staff were not ever able to locate the documents.
In regard to the division of property, he did a very poor representation on my behalf. He failed to cover numerous issues pertaining to child support, bank accounts, missing marital saving and checking accounts. He allowed my ex's attorney to negotiate the division of property with vehicles, which did not belong to me or my ex.
Avoid hiring this attorney! I wish I would have.
First he told me a certain price over the phone when I came in he did not have change and said he will just keep the whole amount I brang just in case I needed to pay more later. I never received my change. Threw out most of the time I was always the one calling wondering about my case. He did not seem too interested in my situation. He was late to my first court date. I had to go to the courts myself to receive the minutes so he could prepare an order which was wrong and another order had to be prepared. Also after all of this he sent me papers that he was going to remove himself as my lawyer. That showed me he had little compassion for my case. I was always polite and nice when ever I spoke to anyone from that "Firm" and I don't think I deserved to be treated the way I was. Highly do not recommend this attorney !!!
