When served with custody papers, I had no idea how to proceed or what to do next. Phyllis was a perfect choice for me. She not only knows what she is doing, but had truly had my best interest at heart throughout my case. She kept me not only informed but in check when I needed it. In the end, I got more then I ever imagined I would. I cannot speak highly enough of Phyllis!

I chose Phyllis Hotchkiss as my representation due to finding positive reviews about her online. Now that I have experienced what type of service she offers, I thought it would only be due diligence for me to write a review. I thought that Phyllis' services offered were appalling. I did not feel at any time that she had my best interest in consideration, only what was easy for her. If I asked her a question, her response was in such a tone that it made me feel foolish for asking her, even though I thought that is one of the reasons you have an attorney - for legal counseling. She did not honor deadlines that I expressed to her in ample time that were of concern for me, she did not push for my best interest in any way, shape or form. She took a very laid back, non-aggressive approach and allowed for my husband's attorney to take control of the proceedings, even though when I originally approached Phyllis several months prior, the cards were stacked in my favor, per se. After informing her that I intended to see new counsel, she created an invoice that used up my entire retainer and then charged me even more money! I am highly dissatisfied with her disassociation with my case. I guess it wasn't exciting enough for her, I just wish she had told me that from the start instead of putting me at a disadvantage with my case and wasting all of my hard earned money as a single mom.
