I came to this lawyer with a complicated divorce case. She charged a lot of money upfront and promised to help me. After that she started being sketchy with her advice and changing her proposed course of action almost every time we spoke. After I tried to clarify what she was going to do she yelled at me saying that it was cheaper for me to email her instead of calling. Then she said I should postpone my divorce all together for undefined period of time. I could not get any answers out of her about what she was going to do to help me.
At the end she did absolutely nothing in court -- didn't file a single form for me and didn't help resolve any issues with my now ex-spouse. I gave up trying to contact her and hired a different lawyer.
Joanne has consulted and helped immensely on more than once. Last time I used her services it was regarding insurance and international travel, she has a wealth of knowledge and experience.
Thank you so much for your quick response to my sister having a stroke w/o will or POA. Since the eldest son is here from overseas, it was a great comfort to discuss his options with him. We spent most of Sunday with the family and my sister...she passed quietly in her sleep early Monday morning...once again...thank you so much..
