This attorney was referred to me and is highly respected in the courtroom! He was very knowledgeable and was there whenever I need him (which was quite often). He told me the good along with the bad and never made any promises. If there is one thing that I could say about him is that he and his wife, Christi Daisy-Snyder, treated my case as if it had actually happened to them! I would recommend he and his wife to anyone that is ever in need, I trust them not just because of all the hard work and sleepless nights they put on my case but because they treated me like a real human being and not just "another client" like so many attorneys out there do. PLEASE HIRE this attorney, he knows the law!
We hired Mr. Snyder to handle a child support case at the end of last year. Like other posters have mentioned on this site, I was initially impressed with his knowledge of the law and his professionalism. However, once we paid him, things changed drastically.
The first red flag was when I happened to call him (in the nearly 9 months this has been on going, he has only called us ONCE; we have had to initiate contact every single time) to get an update on our case, he informed us that we were supposed to be in court in 3 days. Thank goodness I had called, because I doubt he would have called us.
The second red flag was when he kept promising to send us information, but failed to do so, time and again. We couldn't even get an account summary, despite asking for months.
Finally, our case just stopped. After the inital court hearing, he told us that it was just "the first bite of the apple," and that there was plenty more we could do. But then it's like he just gave up on our case. We would call, and he would say all the right things, promise to send us stuff over email and keep us informed, and nothing ever came. A week or so would go by, and same story. Lots of excuses, no results. Sometimes, the information he gave us would change from week to week. NO movement whatsoever on our case. It was so frustrating. We stuck with him because we had already sunk money into him, had no idea WHAT we had paid for (due to his refusal to send an account statement) and how much we had left.
I would strongly suggest anyone who wants to hire Mr. Snyder look elsewhere. His lack of communication will not bring anything but frustration and dead ends.
