Hired Mr. Sutliff to represent me on a combination of BK and uncontested dissolution. My BK was completed appropriately within timeframe. However, my dissolution was filed 3/12 and that was the last thing Mr. Sutliff did. After numerous attempts, pleas and empty promises to complete my dissolution, I last heard from Mr. Sutliff at the end of May 2014. I am now filing a complaint with the bar.
Geoffrey Sutliff filed for my amicable divorce case over 2 years ago. He botched the filing of the court documents. He was unresponsive to phone calls, texts, or email. He didn't follow through with correcting the court documents.
I hired Geoffrey Sutliff for a child custody issue and would never use him again. It's been 2 1/2 years and he has yet to return my calls or reply to my emails. I STILL do not have a court ordered custody report because Geoffrey failed to turn in the minute order from our court date. I have returned to court 2 times on my own trying to obtain a copy of the custody order but was eventually told that my attorney has to turn in the minute order in order for me to get a copy. I do NOT recommend Geoffrey Sutliff to anyone. He was late to my court hearings and does not follow through with work he is supposed to do.
I hired Mr.Sutliff to file my divorce over a year ago I paid him almost $400.00 and have not heard from him yet. When I did hear from him he said my divorce will be finalized last year in July I have been trying to contact him for the last six month and he still have not returned my call he do not even respond to emails. He is not a client centered attorney.
Geoff helped us with our bankruptcy. He was very knowledgeable and really seemed to care about our situation. I would refer him to anyone.
Geoffrey made many promises and never delivered. I paid him a 2,000.00 retainer and in essence he took the money and ran. He never returned phones calls. I had to do all the footwork and file all of my own papers. When the big television news network took the news story, he was no where to be found to give any advice. I managed to successfully handle my own case from beginning to end.
