Unprofessional and Incompetent Legal Representation: A Warning about Attorney Andrei Blakely
Regrettably, my experience with Andrei Blakely as my attorney was highly disappointing and unprofessional. From the start, I encountered numerous issues that hindered the progress of my case. Mr. Blakely filled out my paperwork falsely, causing significant complications during the court proceedings. Instead of addressing the matter appropriately, I had to go through the additional burden of fighting under domestic violence charges and proving my claims, which should have been a straightforward case of infidelity. Furthermore, Mr. Blakely's unprofessional demeanor was evident during our court appearance. He showed up sitting in his non-tinted vehicle, which reflected a lack of professionalism and attention to detail. This left me feeling unsupported and concerned about his commitment to my case. Communication was another major problem throughout the entire process. Mr. Blakely frequently refused to answer my calls, making it challenging to obtain updates or discuss any concerns I had. Additionally, there were instances where he displayed a clear lack of understanding regarding important details of my case. For instance, he asked me a question about the birth dates of my children, not comprehending that they were born 11 months and 2 weeks apart. This displayed a lack of attention to detail and an inability to comprehend information accurately. Sadly, due to the unprofessionalism and incompetence demonstrated by Mr. Blakely, my experience has resulted in wasted time, energy, and financial resources. As a result, I am currently in the process of recovering my funds and pursuing legal action against him. I strongly advise anyone seeking legal representation to consider other options and avoid entrusting their case to Mr. Blakely. It is crucial to work with a competent and reliable attorney who will provide the support and guidance needed during such critical matters.

Response from Andrei Blakely October 19, 2023
I am sorry this former client had a difficult experience working with my firm. I always strive to relate clients' cases to the law. I want to give them realistic options. While I do not agree with her allegations as I think they are taken out of context, I wish her luck in the future with her case or cases.

Client
Mr. Blakley is always understandable, polite, and moreover, professional in every interaction. He is able to maintain his composure under stressful circumstances and deliver his message in court. My outcome was favorable and I’ve kept him on retainer because I’m confident in the manor he handles my case. I would highly recommend him to oversee any critical family law case.

Affordable Professional Representation
I hired Andrei to represent me for a custody case. The odds were stacked against me and I had lost faith in the judicial system based off a biased custody evaluation which would have stripped me of my rights of physical and legal custody of my boys. Andrei reassured me, helped me understand how the laws view fitness, and provided support when I needed to hold on to hope that the case was not lost before the hearing. He responded to concerning matters very quickly, and provided all evidence, in his cross examination, opened up truths that were being consealed by the opposing party, and the Judge ruled what was best for the children. I still share legal and full custody of my children , despite the reputation of the evaluator being held in high regard by the Court , the top dollar lawyer who was hired by the opposing party, and well known in the County. Andrei who was recommended by the bar association of Maryland, from the Baltimore jurisdiction, was affordable, fair, and I was pleased with his representation. I would highly recommend Andrei Blakely in family, and custody matters.

Warning did not use this attorney
write a review for attorney Andre Blakely of his service to be posted on Google. this man lacks the aggression that he needs to have as an attorney he is more concerned about someone yelling at him and the opposing council being upset with him then representing his client. also he's fully motivated by a desire to get paid and if you need him to do anything outside of the scope of what he is paid for he will drop you. he dropped me before I got my settlement and was unwilling to advise me as to what to do to get my settlement. All he really wants was to get paid for doing as little as possible. he if you try to help him he will fully take that help but when it is time for him to help you he will do as little as possible. I was very disappointed with him as an attorney and I would never use him again as my attorney for any type of divorce proceed in nor would I recommend him for a divorce proceeding. Review for Attorney Andre Blakely: I had a disappointing experience with Attorney Andre Blakely. He seemed more focused on avoiding conflict and pleasing the opposing counsel than aggressively representing me. His motivation appeared to be primarily financial, as he was unwilling to go beyond the basic scope of his paid services. When I needed guidance outside of our agreement, he dropped me before my settlement was secured and failed to provide adequate advice. It felt like he prioritized minimal effort over advocating for me effectively. Overall, I would not recommend him for divorce proceedings or any legal matters requiring a dedicated and proactive attorney. He will say what he has to say to get you to be his client but he is not aggressive and he will not really fight for you. Very disappointed I felt like I was misled and strung along.
