Great lawyer if you don't mind being grossly overcharged.
I had a very simple case yet was charged out the wazoo for his services. He definitely is very knowledge in his area of expertise. However it took me a long, long time (even though I did contact him) to get the remaining money from my retainer fee. When I did finally get the invoice I was overcharged. I won't be recommending him to any of my friends.

Response from J. Culpepper May 13, 2020
I regret that you feel this way. There is often more involved in a “simple” case than most people realize. The details in a parenting plan can impact your life, and your child’s life, for years to come, and I believe they are worthy of careful consideration. Unfortunately, that can also be time consuming. I wish you had contacted me to discuss any questions you had about the invoice you were sent. Either way, I wish you the best. JJC
