| Hired Attorney
This lawyer is supposed to be representing me ..hes been on my case for 2 years and has literally filed nothing on my behalf 2 years ..not one filing ..I did not request a lawyer ..i wanted to proceed Pro the first convo ..he was told to turn over all my filings i was not giving him any authorization to view them or do anything else .which he did . then..he forced himself on my case against my will despite having zero info on the case because they had been turned over . Mr Bookhard still went to court and stood in like he was my lawyer ..against my will ... As a result i have lost all rights to my daughter whom ive never met along with other things . ..ive asked him to resign several times ...he has refused ..and continue to obstruct justice . he lied last week told me he filed things and did not . i have the emails to prove it . .. DO NOT HIRE THIS CROOK he has the govt kidnap children to help his lawyer friends ... Report this man immediately he needs to be disbarred.

Worst DUI Public Defender Ever
I totally agree with the other review. This guy was appointed as public defender in my case. Nothing he said as to the outcome or my sentence was the ending result. In fact, the ending result was NOWHERE in the ballpark of what Bookhard had been saying. I could have received a much harsher sentence but I actually think that the judge and the Prosecutor felt sorry for me because he was totally inept. Even stumbled over his words in court. I would NEVER recommend this lawyer for any legal matter.

THE worst Lawyer I have ever had..........
I lost full custody of my child based on this lawyer doing absolutely nothing !!. It was as if he did not know ANY legal strategies. This lawyer should consider switching careers.
