You meet with the lead attorney and get passed to a junior partner.
They spent down a $4500 retainer in less than 7 days and still hadn't filed required paperwork although everything needed was provided during the initial meeting.
It's now the 11th hour and now we're being told the required paperwork won't be filed unless we double the retainer before the day's end but wait, there's more;
This matter was about protecting the safety and well being of a child.
I ended the relationship.
Next morning handed new counsel same materials. Everything was wrapped up in our favor (child safe) less than 48 hours later.
Short version: After needless drama, abuse, and expense, a competitor handled everything in 80% less time for 30% of the original retainer paid to Landerholm.
Do not use this lawyer. Lewis me with me initially about my divorce and told meme would need almost $1000.00 for a retainer and that it would not be more than that since I was already divorced and we just had to amend a few things. Next thing I know my cars was transferred to another lawyer in his firm that was less experienced so "we could keep,the cost down". This other lawyer was,rude and disrespectful to me and contained to ask for more and more money. Now I have paid $3028.00 and Lewis has still not submitted our papers to the judge . He is unresponsive to my emails and just continues to wan more and more money. These lawyers are dishonest and misled me by telling me that the cost would be a lot lower than it actually is. Do not use this lawyer. There are plenty other good lawyers in the portland area that care about people and not just money.
Mr. Lewis Landerholm is an intelligent, compassionate, and an ethical attorney.
Lewis quickly took action on my behalf in what has proven itself to be a highly complicated and extremely distressing case. His representation of me and his ability to prevail in court is incredible. He is a man of honorable character, integrity, professionalism, and is full of knowledge. When I hired Lewis, I not only hired one extremely wonderful person; I hired a stellar team.
Along with Lewis, attorney Joanna Posey, Shelly, and Josh have been working tirelessly to pull all the pieces together, which is something that has far outweighed my expectations. Since 2011 Lewis and his team have represented me in family law; divorce, child custody, domestic violence and adoption. I will be forever grateful for what Lewis and his team have done to protect the safety and best interests of my daughter and I!
I would highly recommend Lewis and Landerholm Law without hesitation!
I hired Mr. Landerholm to represent me in a child custody case. My initial meeting with him was very positive, but it quickly became apparent that Mr. Landerholm likes to play mediator more than that of representing his clients as a lawyer. When after a month of not accomplishing anything (other than a bill for each and every minute of his telephone conversations with the other attorney and emails that led nowhere), I came to the conclusion that I needed a lawyer with more experience, more strategy, and less costly conversation. Once I switched attorneys, my situation was resolved in our favor within two weeks, and we actually settled out of court. My costs with the second (very experienced) lawyer were one third the cost of Mr. Landerholm, and my lawyer actually got something done in the process. Hopefully, with more experience, Mr. Landerholm with become more efficient and more affordable.
Mr. Landerholm is both trustworthy and highly knowledgeable in Family Law . He was able to clearly answer all questions concerning my case. He provided explanation of realistic expectations and outcomes in regard to child custody, parenting time, and child/spousal support . Mr. Landerholm was professional while at the same time easy to talk with in regards to the specifics of my case. Phone calls were consistently returned in a very timely manner as well as written communication. I consistently felt thoroughly advised on the pros and cons of taking certain legal action throughout the case. While going through such a personal matter it was nice to know that I could trust my attorney to direct and advise in regards to the long term effects of choices I was having to make at such a turbulent time. I would recommend Mr. Landerholm and would not hesitate to use his services if needed in the future.
If you need an attorney I highly recommend Lewis Landerholm. He is my go to attorney for any legal question. I found him to be compassionate, extremely intelligent, and able to find an answer to resolve issues.
I can't thank Lewis enough. He has been such a fantastic attorney. From the very beginning he was very straightforward and honest and was very upfront in letting me know what to expect. I'm so glad that I was able to hire him to fight for the custody of my children. I would have been completely lost without his help and my kids would not have ended up with me as primary parent without all of his hard work. His firm was so professional in how they handled everything and they were always available when I needed to talk or was stressed about our trial. Thank you so much for all the hard work. I would tell everyone to hire you.
