Review Lynda Hinkle

  • Controlled an Uncontrollable Situation

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Holly

    As a person in a vulnerable situation, left without support for four children and unable to get accounts for the marital home into my name (for basic survival), not to mention being harassed and threatened, I can objectively say Lynda saved my very existence. She and her staff acted quickly and professionally to protect me by helping me file for divorce, win interim support, and arrange a fair settlement so I could continue my life in a reasonable fashion. The situation was completely out of control and she controlled it. She handles issues that arise in domestic court quickly, efficiently, and permanently. Her entire staff was immediately responsive when my ex turned off my internet and raided my email. Nothing phases Lynda and she not only refused to tolerate nonsense, but she also calmed me down by continually reminding me there is the law and there is emotion, and no one's crazy emotions will control my rights. Six months after total chaos, I am back on my feet because of her.

    When I got into my legal situation, at first, I didn’t think I needed a layer. But when I tried to negotiate my terms by myself at the court house, I noticed that the lawyer on the other side was leaving things out and provided me with an unfair deal. Essentially based off of that interaction, I was locked in and handcuffed so to speak. I heard about The Law Offices of Lynda Hinkle online, had a conversation the Lynda and now I have a fair deal that I know I wouldn’t have had without her. I now have a more confident future and confidence that I wasn’t at fault. Thank you to Lynda and of course Petey the Law Dog for always being so kind.

    Lynda took the time to explain to me why hiring her was not a good idea! She said my probate matter would not yield enough return to justify the expense, and she was right. I've referred several people to her since then because she was honest with me even though I was ready to pay her for what would have not been worth the money: thank God I didn't go to an attorney who was more concerned with making a buck than helping people!

  • Extremely Disappointed and Will Never Recommend Her to Anyone!

    Lynda was extremely unprofessional when handling my legal family matter. She and her staff actually laughed at my situation and made a crude joke in my presence regarding my dire legal issue. She made me feel uneasy and furthermore, she did not handle my case in a professional manner. I am SO disappointed by her representation and wish I never sought her assistance. She rarely returned by phone calls (when I was asking about the status of my case), she MISSED a court appearance on my behalf, and again, she laughed at me at my initial interview. Needless to say, I will never return for her assistance again. I will never refer her to someone- not even my worst enemy. She is awful.

    Lynda L. Hinkle’s response: “So, this never happened. None of it. I've never missed a court appearance in my life. Im not perfect, but I work hard, am honest, and I do the best I can to get the best possible outcomes under the law. No one can please everyone, but this characterization is so blatantly out of the realm of how I or my staff work that I feel confident it isn't the writing of an actual client at all. The trouble with sites like AVVO is there is absolutely no mechanism for people to determine truth of the reviews: bad OR good. So, I urge the reader to see for yourself. Call my office. Have a consult. I will be honest about your situation, even tell you if you don't really need a lawyer. Most people say I make them feel much more at ease and provide them with a lot to think about. Although no one can make all clients happy, particularly in family law where sometimes what people want doesn't match what the law says they can have, I have made hundreds and hundreds of people glad they hired me as an attorney or glad they came to see me, and I'll stand on that record.”

    Lynda and her staff took my case and concerns seriously. They provided outstanding legal advice and support. The kind and compassionate manner in which I was treated by both Lynda and her staff made a difficult time easier to endure. Erin and Amy are the best! I would and will recommend them whenever I can.

    Lynda is very helpful in explaining the process to her clients and gives honest advice. She's willing to work with you to help set up a payment schedule and keep your costs low.

    But most importantly, she's honest and hard working. Can't ask more for a lawyer.

    It was my first wreck, my first traffic ticket, and my first court summons rolled into one awful morning.

    "No worries," my colleague told me, "when i was in my car wreck, my lawyer (Lynda Hinkle) helped me sort it all out quickly."

    SO i called Lynda and was relieved to learn that her legal skills are matched by her ability to ratchet my anxiety down do a manageable level. She told me what to expect, what to fret, and (most importantly) what NOT to fret. The anxiety I felt (would I lose my license? would I be sued) before i reached out to a lawyer makes me wonder how I thought I might face the scene in municpal court alone. The price was right for me and I am just glad to have that whole scene in my rear-view mirror.

    I spent a whole week after the accident basically freaking out before I finally reached out for help. Moving on relatively unscathed from a car accident in no small feat. I'm just glad i had help.

    To begin, I called the office looking for some advice about my possible case and the woman that answered the phone was very rude to me. She asked about my situation and I could hear her holding back laughter. I then spoke with Lynda and she was also extremely rude and down-played my circumstances. She also did not get back to me in a timely manner about what my possible next steps could be. I contacted another attorney in the area and the attorney explained to me that lawyers are supposed to be in constant contact with their potential clients and that Lynda's behavior was not only unethical but unprofessional. Needless to say, I ended my case with Lynda and am now being represented by another firm who is handling by case wonderfully.

    Lynda L. Hinkle’s response: “I am sorry you had a negative experience. Although I do not know who you are or what your specific circumstances were, I can say that it would be unusual for us to do significant follow up with unpaid, potential clients. We offer a free consult, but thereafter we generally ask for a retainer to provide additional direction on a case. I can also say honestly that we strive to provide excellent service to clients and potential clients, and if you would like to email me directly to discuss what occurred, I'd be happy to clear it up with you.”

    Lynda and her Staff are the most caring, friendly, professionals I have ever dealt with. Right from the start they made me feel like they really cared personally about my matter. I never felt like just a number to anyone. Amy you are a doll. I cant thank this office for all they have done for me. If you need someone on your side this firm is it. Thanks again.

    Lynda makes you feel very comfortable. I never felt like I was dealing with a sleazy "lawyer-type". She handled my case with care, and always answered my questions quickly and efficiently. As a bonus, she provided ways for me to keep my bill down- like asking simple questions to the cheaper(and knowledgable!) staff. She also didn't charge for some things that other attorneys do, like leaving voicemails. I would use her again if I had to!
