Posted by DonnaEllis, a Appeals client,
Mr. Pfeiffer was ineffective. He never met me in person and spoke maybe 2 times before the appeal.I had to coax him into appearing. He had gotten approximately 5 grand regardless of outcome. He provided the court and myself with a petition that had inaccurate information about my marital status with my ex husband. This was crucial factor in adoption case. He didn't care to correct false info , we never went over the facts. He had been recommended by a group called CPS WATCH. An advocacy group made up of parents who had their children taken by CPS. He did expose the fact that the adoption meaning TERMINATION of PARENTAL RIGHTS was done for financial gain for the State . IT IS ON RECORD. and perhaps that's all he could do to expose the truth that these children were being marketed and adopted out unjustly. However he didn't live up to his reputation , and there were other observations and complaints from other CPS watch parents. He had published a case and I figured he would be the most effective lawyer . He let me down horribly , and it is a tragedy. My son is being abused in his placement with my ex husband . He is not biological father and the child legally had to be placed with a relative. So i Feel he could have prevailed on that fact alone. He could have found something to turn my case around.HE told me that is what he would do...find something.. He just didn't put the effort into my case. After losing in court he said he would speak to me and never did..and he left the transcripts in a hallway outside his office on the floor. I should have left my case with the first lawyer assigned , she was blown away when she read my case . that this Termination was unjust and that there were many Termination of Parental RIghts that were being done unjustly. She wanted to fight for justice and my right to parent my child but i took the case away from her thinking RICH would come through. He did not come through in the end. He talked a good story in order for me to give him the case than he did very little work. HE was all talk and NO ACTION.
