He did NOT file the counter-suit for me, as was requested/required. He put off the hearing 4 different times, which REALLY ticked off the judge. He was LATE to the final hearing by over 2 hours, I was told by the judge that the case would be decided that day whether he showed or not. He brought NOTHING with him to defend me with, he didn't even have a piece of paper with him! I had NO choice but to accept a "negotiated" settlement that was not as good as what I could have done if I had just paid the other party up front! He did reduce his fee by 50%, if I would accept the settlement, so, bottom line, it only cost me $500 for him to negotiate an inferior settlement for me. He was a client's worst nightmare!!!!
