I only wish I had known about this Lawer review site before I parted with my hard earned money. If there was a way to give negative stars, I would. Peter Dahlin is the worst choice you can possibly make for representation. On top of his horrid skills as an attorney, Peter will attempt to suck every last penny you have. Don't get sucked in by his seemingly aggressive legal cooersiveness to retain you as a client. Peter cares only about one thing and one thing only... lining his pockets! Don't say you weren't warned.
Tried to work as many fees as possible into our case without being able to account for them.
Mr. Dahlin is very happy to take your money but then that is the last you see or hear from him! He did a terrible job on my divorce. Court was embarassing, he didn't even try to help me win custody of my child, he was off in his own world of things that had no relevance to the custody issue. He even asked a question during court that must have been from a different divorce he was handling. He had no clue about any of the facts of my case. He was only interested in collecting my money!
I called to inquire about moving out of state with my child. I wanted to know the process to make plans to do this with a parenting plan in place already (i know I will need a lawyer eventually, I'm not sure where to start). he was very rude on the phone and would not answer any of my questions. all he would say is that I need to hire him first and that I can't just move. I already knew that much that was why I called him. he did not help at all I was not impressed.
Worst business practices ever! Doesn't return phone calls or e-mails. Agreed to refund 500.00 to me. Has not sent payment in nearly a year. I have attempted to contact him at least 20 times in the last 10 months and have never heard back from him. His office is filled with ugly old 80's furniture and he has been through more new front desk employees then I can remember. AVOID HIM AT ALL COSTS!
