Marilyn represented this family and failed. She intentionally dragged out simple 2 day hearings into 2 week hearings hauling in a big 36 hours of hearing time. Refusing to call mistrial, refusing to file motions for reconsideration, refusing to file for the appeal. She is to old to practice. We filed a complaint to the bar and the bar responding that they would watch her to make sure this does not happen again. We lost our daughter due to her negligence. She allowed to much stuff into the case that did not pertain to the compliant. We saw her lose a couple more cases after ours.
I hired this attorney 12/31/2009. She remained on the case till 2/2010 and terminated her. She took 2 weeks hearing time on a shelter care hearing and 2 weeks on the dependency hearing running up our bill like crazy. Asked her to withdraw so we can have DAC do the appeal. The request was ignored and filed 2 days late and we did not see the appeal before the filing was attempted.
Marilyn failed to defend our case by failing to file the motion of reconsideration and the Appeal she said she would file. We asked her to file it early so it wouldnt be late because of the confusion of the date. She did not do that either. Her errors caused so much damage to our case it may be irreversable
You cant get any better lawyer than Marilyn Gunther. She is one of the few lawyers that really really cares personally about each and every client. You can feel rewarded to have Marilyn as your attorney. I can say that from personally having Marilyn represent me.
You won't find a harder working lawyer.
