Posted by a Guardianship client
I will say NEVER use this lawyer. She was not my lawyer but she was the (GAL) Guaridian Ad Litem assigned to my Guardianship case over my disabled son and she, being a GAL, is supposed to be unbiased and objective. She was not. She met with me and my son and talked with us for about 15 minutes each. She then talked to my ex-husband, my daughters dad (whom I have very bad relationships with) and they made horrible false accusations about me which she took at face value without every cross-referencing the credibility of their accusations with me. She just put this information in her Guardianship Report, of course not recommending me as guardian of my own son, but recommending a publicly paid guardian. Long story short, she is completely untrustworthy, does not do her job right. Seems to take everything she is told at face value as being the truth even though I had documentation to prove otherwise. I was told by my attorney that she did not read our declarations at all. She for some reason wanted to completely side with my ex-husband and my daughters father. Do not pay this woman a penny, avoid her at all costs. If you need a good attorney for a Guardian case I would highly recommend Arlene Joe.
