As a survivor of domestic violence Mr. De Treville seemed empathetic and kind. That was 2 years and 2 months ago! I cant get the man to call me or finish my case! He has been through 3 Paralegals in that time and non of them can seem to remember how to CC me on emails about my case!! I can only imagine what goes on in that office to go through so many that are inept. No one answers my calls or messages. In the rarity that they do pick up " we'll give him the message" is all I get. NEVER a return call from him! Clearly Martindale-Hubbell who awarded him a "Client Distinction Award" went of his charming looks or first impressions not his current client list!
Heck I can't even get his mother, who he is in business with, to call me back! They may have been great lawyers at one point... NOT RECOMMENDING!

I hired Mr. DeTreville to handle a family matter. He asked for a $2,500 retainer and I felt confident he was going to handle the matter quickly. It has now been several months and I can't even get a return phone call. I have left over 4 messages in the last two weeks alone and nothing. No phone call, no update, no acknowledgement. What has he done so far? Where are we with this case? I have so many questions and no answers. This is a shame!

in the last week
I went to Mr. DeTreyville because of these reviews. When I saw him I told him how I'd been ripped off trying to get a divorce and he said he would help me and look out for me. He also said in a matter of weeks this would all be behind me. Retainer: $2,500. But I was sure it wouldn't actually cost that much and he assured me they would keep all costs down as much as possible.
Sounds like a good deal in a time of hurting.
Two weeks later I send an email saying I haven't heard anything.
A few days later, another email asking about my case.
Then a couple of phone calls with promises to get back to me.
After four weeks I said enough is enough. I need to get another lawyer and asked for my money back.
It has been two and a half months. I've sent emails, made phone calls, set appointments... He wasn't there for my appointment!
I said that I've lost faith in him to represent me and that I didn't trust the paralegal that can't even make appointments to do any work on my case.
Again, I asked for my money so that I could hire someone else.
No responses yet. Even though I was told that she would talk to Mr. DeTreyville.
My heart is broken in so many ways.
DeTreyville Law is unreliable and has no back up plan of any kind. When the first paralegal quit, I was told they didn't have access to her emails and that was why they didn't respond to me.
He's got lots of excuses for his terrible business and his new paralegal is pretty terrible as well!

Mike is one of the smartest people I have ever met. I have known him for over 20 years on a personal basis as well as a professional basis. I recommend every inquiry that I receive that is based in South Carolina to Mike DeTreville. I highly recommend his services.
