Seemed more interested in billable hours than in getting me a settlement. After spending way too much time and money, I switched to an attorney who explained the divorce process and hopeful outcome.
Peretz seemed to get annoyed at me when I asked for explanations. This was my first divorce, and hopefully last. He was rude and called for meetings that he said were required immediately, so I took time off from work to get to his office. When I arrived, he would ask why I was there and then bill me for the time he spent berated me for not being prepared. When I said I was switching, he wrote 1 paragraph letters dated the same day I told him I was leaving. These were in my new attorney's files, and included on my final bill (rate seemed high).
He did not seem well versed in the Nassau Court system and billed for the full time he sat in court, which was not the case with my 'real' attorney. He could not understand that the process was emotional for me and even criticized me for that. Did not seem to be acting as my advocate.
Endorsements from fellow lawyers are an important consideration for many when selecting the right attorney. Be the first to endorse your colleague!
