You really do get what you pay for
I originally hired Christine Borzilleri (now Stowell) in March of 2013 to help me adopt my son. She told me the process wasn’t complicated and it should take about six months. I was unemployed and didn’t have unlimited resources so the price was very reasonable but I guess it’s true...you get what you pay for. My adoption case became final Nov. 12, 2014. Seems that the only way I could get Christine to respond to my emails was to threaten her with calling the Bar Association or something. I could never just get a timely response. One of the documents I had to provide for the court was my son’s original birth certificate. That had to come from the Philippines and it was not easy to procure. I gave it to Ms. Borzilleri and the court says they personally handed it back to her the day my son’s adoption was final. Now, she can’t find it. I requested all my documents before the final hearing and Ms. Borzelleri said she would bring them all to me. The day of the adoption she did not. When I asked her what happened to my files she replied that she keeps them for many years. Then I found out that I’m actually entitled to have my files. Ms. Borzilleri didn’t respond to my subsequent requests for them (as well as my son’s birth certificate) until I’d informed her that I’d called Mr. Ken Luke at the MA Board of Bar Overseers. As I write this today, Feb. 6, 2015, I still don’t have my files but Ms. Borzilleri says they’re “in the mail”. She still says that she can’t find my son’s birth certificate and that’s pretty much the end of that, she’s done. My option here is to hire another lawyer to sue her to pay for my expenses in procuring yet another birth certificate. I’m so tired of this process but now, if I want my son’s birth certificate I have to go to court again? Agggggh. Buyer beware. If you hire Christine Borzilleri (Stowell) it will take you twice as long to resolve your case and get minimal response (if any) to your inquiries. Plus she may lose your original, important paperwork. I just don't want someone else to have to go through what I experienced with this lawyer.
