This question was presented by Mr. Jeff Robinette, when retained to represent us; to an attorney who we believed committed legal malpractice. We asked Mr. Robinette to review our situation, then represent us which he agreed to do. From our experience, attorneys who were willing to do possible legal malpractice are fairly rare. Apparently, it is not enjoyable to confront a fellow attorney who many have committed legal malpractice.
Mr. Jeff Robinette met with our former attorney. Mr. Robinette gave him a choice to go the "Easy Way" which was a verbal, then written agreement stating everything the former attorney would need to do to make us whole. The other option, the "Hard Way", would have taken the previous attorney through the legal system. Apparently the former attorney was aware of Mr. Robinette's knowledge and court skills, therefore he made the decision that the hard way was not wise.
In our relationship with Mr. Robinette, we felt that we were his only client. Communication was excellent, often receiving returning emails or phone calls in minutes or no longer than a day. This was most reassuring. At all times, Mr. Robinette gave us council, options, followed by wise recommendations as the best course of action.
Mr. Jeff Robinette brought our situation to a most successful conclusion. We could not have had an attorney to represent us in a more professional, helpful, caring manner.
We never physically met Mr. Robinette. All communications were emails or phone calls. We were in Florida, he was in West Virginia. After the case was concluded, our family was vacationing about 50 miles from Morgantown, WV. Jeff, wife Terri, two daughters an newly acquired puppy can to visit. How personal can an attorney be? What a nice time we spent together.
We fully and completely endorse Mr. Jeff Robinette as an attorney in his several fields of expertise! Hire him as your attorney; you will have a talented person to represent you and likely a caring friend as well!
