I hired Paul for a DUI case. My many attempts to contact him via phone, appointment and emails went unheeded for weeks on end. Completely exasperated, I decided to send an ultimatum that said how disrespectful I found his lack of communication, and if it persisted, I would terminate the relationship. All I received in response was a VM that basically dared me to fire him. Ultimately, I decided to sever the relationship because I did not trust that he had my best interests at heart. From what I've heard about him, I do believe he is knowledgable with the cases that he cares about. If you're not one of those, then you'll be lucky to receive a response in a month's time. Apparently he spends a large portion of his day in court, so I understand that can cause a delay in response time, but court ends at 4 pm, so no excuse to not be in touch after that. Or at the very least an acknowledgement that you received my messages and would get back to me in an appropriate time. I'm a working professional, and we're all busy. That excuse holds no water for me. Ultimately, I did not find my experience with him to be worth my time or money.
