My case involved working in an area where the court has very wide discretion (spousal support). The team at JHMoreno Law provided excellent and conscientious support over a 4-year period of support contention. They crossed all their t's and dotted the i's and documented everything. While this kind of administrative work is expensive, it was necessary in working with the slippery opposition. Much more important was the wisdom of the counsel provided to me. JHM, esq., was amenable to discussions about strategy and metaphor, most unusual in a legal context, but powerful in a trial situation. His associates were knowledgeable,
and, when they didn't know, they looked it up. The staff treated me like family and I felt comfortable expressing myself in their offices. The work they have done on my behalf is first-rate. These lawyers are real people and, contrary to the usual negative 'shark' connotation, the tone of this law firm is compassionate and helpful. They have gone above and beyond in their prosecution of my case. I highly recommend them.
The attorney and his associate were friendly and assuring but I learned the hard way that they were not as experienced as I expected and as they claimed to be. In the earlier court hearings, the attorney did not put in adequate effort to present my case in order to effectively deal with the opposing party. My case could have settled sooner instead of it being drawn out for over 2 years. I know that if there was a more experienced associate working on my case, there would have been better overview and anticipation of particular problems. Many things were unnecessarily done and too much time was spent over the briefs and other paper work, rewriting several times and reviewing them to make them "perfect" thus experience was gained by the associate at my expense. Also the exorbitant legal fees I paid did not get me the quality of advocacy as expected. The office support charges were very high too which I believe is due to a complex and sophisticated office system and a large staff.
