I hired him to get a default judgement thrown out because I wasn't notified, the day after receiving the default in the mail. He said he had 2 weeks to file and I trusted that he would work diligently, after all he had boasted that he was the 5th best custody atty in the state. A month later when nothing had been stopped and my wages started being withheld, I called him upset that he had not done what we hired him to do and fearing losing my home in the injustice. He gave an attitude like how dare I, and suggested I might want another lawyer, but when I cooled off I made sure he got my apology and was assured by office staff and Alan Turner that Darren was used to high emotion in his field and my case would continue to be taken care of. It wasn't. He filed 6 months later and had me sign a verification without looking directly at the document, as I had met that day with his female paralegal britany who assured me that she would personally return my calls from now on, but in my tears discussing my case, she had earned my trust enough that I took her oral summary as fact of what I was signing for and off it went. He then filed a LOA and postponed the hearing inevitably, as the staff kept claiming his LOA was extended paternity leave for a sick infant, even getting upset with me for my sense of urgency, due to my attorney's "sick" infant. When my kids, my home, and my freedom were at stake. He waited a full year and had Alan call me in to dump me, but as a courtesy he had made the resceduled hearing date, and had Brittany jot it on a postit for us. I went to court for show cause and found out there was indeed no court date, the LOA filed was one week, and every attempt I made to get back in court ended tumultuously with him withdrawing another year later the day of court and I lost of course. But when he finally released my case to me I saw the motion he originally filed and realized I had not seen it. It's main purpose was not about helping me or my kids, but was to cover for his lack of due diligence, claiming I couldn't afford an atty and had to wait until I could! He then said I hired him and he filed as soon as he could. He did not work for me. His work was solely against me. My own attorney that I paid 2500 retainer to accomplish a simple filing to set asside a default. 5 best for who?
