    • I do not recommend Paula Mcgill.

    This is the most unprofessional law firm i have ever encountered. Mrs Mcgill is very Rude, Smug, Short and quite frankly IS NOT an example of what a decent attorney with morals represents. I encourage anyone who’s looking for an attorney who is transparent to steer clear of this Law Firm. You’ll be better off representing yourself.

    • I do not recommend Paula Mcgill.

    Ms. McGill is such an unprofessional Attorney and I would never recommend anyone to use her. I fired her from representing me because what you discuss when you meet is not what she does when she's on her own. She's only professional when it's time to get paid and after that you will have to chase her to get feedback regarding your case.

      Lawyer Comment:

      She provides no specifics because, the truth is something different. As an attorney, I cannot go into detail about what happened here. However, if you are thinking about hiring me, understand this:

      I have several clients and most are happy with my responsiveness and knowledge. In fact, she states no facts on what legal theory or facts I gave here that were erroneous. What does she mean by unprofessional? Again, no specifics.

      She also doesn't state, what the circumstances were about being kept informed. Did she request an update two weeks ago and never received a response? Does she require a solo practitioner to drop her other clients to talk with her? When you call mjy office for an update or question, you will get the answer from me, not an associate or paralegal. Her review was written on November 30 (Thanksgivng Sunday). Even attorneys deserve time off with their families.

      I give my clients my cell phone number and office number. Most times, i respond within 24 hours. However, courts, depositions, meetings, holidays (even Thanksgiving), will extend that time.

      I try not to bother clients with useless updates if they are at work, while they are with their children, are in the hospital, or on family emergencies. To do otherwise would be unprofessional, rude and disrespetful.

      I get repeat business and referrals because of my professionalism, and If you as a potential clilent understand the following, we will have a great attorney client relationship:
      (1) I work with all budgets. However, once you sign a contact that has a payment plan, you must make payments as indicated.
      (2) if you are reminded of your payment obligations under the contact, don't get angry.
      (3) I am very mindful of attorney charges and time. I won't call or contact you with useless information. However, you can always contact me by e-mail and leave a message. The same 1-2 business day turn around applies, except for holidays, vacations, court time, etc.

      (3) I am available by e-mail, phone (office and cell), and text during reasonable business hours. There is one to two business day turn around.

      (4) Although I have weekend and after hour meeting times for clients, I deserve time off during off weekends, holidays, and vacations to unwind and be with family and friends.

      (5) I am a solo practitioner who provides personal service to clients. If you need constant updates and reassurances even if nothing is going on in your case, you may need an attorney who can assign a partner, an associate, a paralegal, and secretary.
