Extremely expensive
Not only was John Green expensive during our adoption but I found myself having to take care of things myself that John was unable to accomplish. I would not recommend his services at all.
Response from John Greene August 12, 2016
I am sorry to read this review as I pride myself on excellent service and happy clients. In the 1600 adoptions I've handled, I have not had any client express concerns such as this to me. That said, on the concerns raised, my fees are discussed with all clients before we start working together so they can evaluate and compare costs if they wish. In speaking with other adoption attorneys I have learned that my fees are competitive or often significantly lower than what is charged here. As for working together, clients are often asked to support our work by supplying documents, such as marriage certificates and statements of health as required by the courts. This is part of a cooperative effort that we do to help hold down costs for all of our clients. We believe that clients shouldn't have to pay for something they can do themselves-- unless of course, they want us to do it for them! I invite the writer of this review, if intended tor me (I spell my name Greene, not Green), to contact me to discuss any concerns directly so they can be resolved.
