| Hired Attorney
Kept my money did no work
Paid my retainer fee as he requested, I sent him an email detailing my case so he did little work, if any. Never heard back from him about when to meet and where for the court date. I got to court, he showed up way after and I had already left. My husband had been calling and calling him and his office nor him ever answered. I decided to change lawyers and being I hired him 4 days prior, I just asked him for my retainer back- he refused and made a fake invoice saying he did a bunch of research that equalled the exact amount of my retainer- how ironic eh? He claimed to have called me and emailed me telling me when and where to meet him get never sent any backup emails or phone records. This man is a poor excuse for a lawyer-and he knew o was strapped for money and still he Kept my money. Take my advise-don't use him, he has no reviews but bad reviews for a reason!

Kept our money and did little of the work
We hired Mr. McSpadden in 2006 to handle child custody/child support case. We did the legwork of drafting a parenting plan. The only thing Mr. McSpadden did was to appear in court one time to have an extension granted to our case, and that was because he had not been active in getting information from the other party. Because of a lack of action on Mr. McSpadden's part, we ended up getting served with a countersuit from DSS. We were forced to hire (thankfully) another attorney who turned out to be very competent and proactive. However, we were not able to recover any of the $2000.00 retainer that we paid to Mr. McSpadden for a one time court appearance.
