I think it's time for William to retire. During one meeting he sat there for 30 seconds thinking with his pen hovering over a piece of paper and didn't say a word. It was just weird. I was not happy with his performance at all and he was even impolite at times. I found another attorney to finish my divorce that I was much happier with.
I hired Mr. Sargeant to serve as my standard of care expert in a legal malpractice lawsuit against another lawyer in connection with the other lawyers representation of a client in a divorce action. I could not have been more satisfied with his services. He was straight forward and effective and reasonable to deal with in every way.
Bill Sargeant was/is an excellent attorney through my divorce process and beyond. He and his staff made my initial consultation a comfortable process (as possible) and provided me with realistic, sound advice. He is very matter of fact, honest and forward, which in turn required me to think rationally and realistically about my situation (and who can think clearly during those times) and how to progress forward. He was able to help me think one step ahead and provided many answers to my "what ifs?" Fortunately my actual divorce was rather quick and hassle free, due to having Bill's guidance in settling issues without having to go before a judge. Nevertheless, I feel Bill would have been more than capable of representing me in court if the need had arrised. I continue to call him to this day for guidance and he has been very responsive, helpful, informative, and a great resource to call upon when needed. I HIGHLY recommend Bill to anyone I know in need of an attorney.
Recently, I have been involved in some very unpleasant litigation. As a result, I required both legal guidance and support. I requested such from William P Sargeant, attorney at law. His honesty, experience and legal foresight have disallowed me from becoming too high or too low during my ordeal. Bill has been a steadying force throughout my sometimes frustrating and upsetting dealings within our justice system. I would readily recommend him to anyone seeking legal representation. This man is outstanding in more ways than just being a lawyer!
Mr. Sargeant has been instrumental in evaluating my Child Support case.
After I was notified by Child Support Enforcement that the case would be closed, Mr. Sargeant researched all options in an extremely quick timeframe. He pursued alternatives and provided updates every step of the way. I would highly recommend Mr. Sargeant as an attorney. He is personable, knowledgeable, and his background in Family Law is clearly evident.
