Met with him during a crisis an he made me feel that we would be helped. Gave him money for investigation and then he wrote a letter than went no where. His only interest is in what money he can extract. What should have been a few days or weeks was stretched out for six month. After everything, he was essentially useless. His initial lip service and opinion had nothing to do with his actions. Stay Away from Michael O'Tool,

Mr OToole really disappointed my family by doing the bidding of the opposing party on our case. Clearly money, not integrity ranks highest to OToole. We had a property dispute case caused at least in part by OToole who recertified plot lines of a mortgage survey and did not suggest we survey the property. Our house, the oldest, by far of it's abutting properties, clearly had adverse possession advantage which OToole refused to pursue. He even said to me " The (neighbors) could charge me a million dollars fir the @five by 93 foot piece of land" clearly outrageous. We wished to fight it as neighbors "bought" land knowing it was a disputed piece used by our home for @100 years. He ignored us and was viciously argumentative over the phone at a time my mother was dying and I had bronchitis. I suggest he was really representing the other party and not subtly. Finally we just fired him and never heard from him again. To me very shocking as he was a sworn fiduciary who must protect our rights and act for our benefit. Surely he did the opposite. What motivation? Gue$$! Bad, scary!
