Probate for my Aunt's will. Barry had all of the information he needed to complete the probate. I visited his office several times, made numerous calls to see how things were going all with no response, stopped by the office to see if I could get him to call but he was always "out of the office" or "busy". Finally after 2 years I went to another attorney who completed the process for me. Barry never called to apologize or explain his "non action". It was an awful experience and a terrible waste of time and money.
We needed assistance with legal issues ranging from a home purchase to wills and Barry was extremely knowledgeable on all points. He is easy to talk to and understands the issues most families are facing. He responds quickly and his staff is helpful and very friendly as well. He was listed as an attorney who accepts the Hyatt Legal Services rates, so his work was very affordable. I highly recommend him and we will continue to use his services if needed in the future.
My mother, now deceased, had Barry Kombol do her will. I went to him for advice about her personal property. After one visit which was interrupted several times he billed my for 1.6 hours. I was there for a maximum of 1 hour. He made all his own photo copies for me, answered his incoming phone calls and stoked his fire. He gave me wrong information and when I called him back to tell him this he asked that I return to his office. We made an appointment. I got there 10 minutes early and he had clients in his office. He apologized and I ended up waiting a total of 70 minutes. This visit was for 30 minutes when he again made me photo copies of handwritten forms and took one phone call for about 5 minutes. For this I was billed for 1 hour.
When I received his bill for $670. I called and complained loudly. He had overcharged me 1 hour and 10 minutes. $250. an hour is just about $260. Not to mention when I was there not getting his full attention. Spelling names incorrectly and other errors. He out of courtesy (His words) refunded me $175.00.
