In My Opinion..........
I am a business owner who has first hand knowledge and experience with numerous attorneys over the past thirty-five years and I would rate Mr. Hurd at the top of all of them. This includes the very high priced attorneys in Atlanta, New York and California. Mr. Hurd was prompt, knowledgeable, efficient, responsive and professional. He resolved my legal issue quickly. I read the above comment and everyone is entitled to their opinion so in my opinion I give Mr. Hurd the highest rating possible.

This attorney was recommended 2 me by an advocate at Salvation Army. He was slow and too busy for my case. At first he made me feel comfortable telling me his wife had been through similiar situation and I should contact her. But he was so slow that my husbands attorney was a ble to make the first move of serving me divorce papers. My husband had a kick-ass attorney named Christina Cruse. She wanted 2 rip my soul out n shove it down my throat! She is very agressive and will get the job done if you are in need. If ya want help she is expensive n most worth it! Most do not understand the seriousness of Domestic Violence or Narcissistic PD. Robert Gurd is one of them. I went back 2 my husband. I felt I had no other choice. Robert had a chance 2 help me but failed. I think of him daily and how he let me down BIG TIME.

Response from Robert Gurd March 30, 2011
Sounds like this individual (you) is more upset and frustrated with the system than by what Mr. Gurd allegedly did or failed to do. By far the most telling statement of all is that you went back to your husband. Do you genuinely believe that the skill/promptness of an attorney, or lack thereof, negates or interferes with your ability and RESPONSIBILITY to make an independent decision about what is best for you in terms of interpersonal relationships? Surely not, and the fact that you attempt to shift the blame in such an absurd manner reveals to me that your judgment should be questioned. Any legal obstacles one may fact insofar as securing a divorce is concerned should have no bearing on whether one remains with a spouse - particularly when one apparently believes the relationship is not healthy or beneficial.
