My first conversation with Ted was more than promising that my charges would be dropped or I at least would be able to get it expunged off my record. He told me he would give me a discount and I would only owe him $1,800 for a providing minor with alcohol, not even a county court either. He told me " you can go look for cheaper, and I'm sure you'll find it, but darling I will tell you one thing, you get what you pay for"
Unfortunately I fell for this. I am a college student who works full time and goes to school full time, and pays for school on my own, but he promised to fix this, so I decided it would be worth it to put this money towards him rather than school, or my car.
Well I met with Ted for the first time and we went over everything that happened, we went over my past record, I have a couple of misdemeanors from 2013 and 2014, and he. Still promised to take care of me, he said "don't you worry about anything, now that I'm you're lawyer it is my job to worry, not yours, so don't worry and I will get in touch with you closer to court"
Ted didn't call or email me AT ALL, I had to call him the Friday before court and ask what was happened get and he said he had his assistant email me, which they didn't, but to meet on Monday to sign all of the papers so that I could be on the diversion program. I was very excited about this news. That Monday I go to see ted and on the papers it says you must not have a record to be on diversion, I pointed this out, and ted was very confused, although we had been over the fact that I did I fact have a record many times. He had his assistant print out the report from my other court dates when I was there, I was thinking the whole time "I thought I wasn't supposed to worry and you were going to take care of this?!" Basically ted was very unorganized, unprepared, and made many promises throughout my time with him that he didn't keep whatsoever. I will not be using Mr. Saulter Again, and I wish I would have gotten a cheaper lawyer because the outcome of court would have been the exact same if I would have found a nice $300-$-900 lawyer. I will never recommend ted to any of my friends, or enemies if I'm being completely honest.
