Based on reading the previous review, yes it is true that he wouldn't directly go to court for my issue, but it doesn't mean he's bad at what he does. He did help me out with a few issues (damages sought by a prior landlord, fence destroyed by a developer, new construction sending water onto my property.) He would not directly go to court with me, but he did write some great letters in my behalf which got me what I wanted and provided good advice on how to handle other things efficiently and cost effectively. Honestly the guy was a lifesaver and I have absolutely no idea what I would have done without him. He was very approachable and was a great help to me.

This lawyer lacks the courage to stand up for what is right for his client. He is about maintaining the status quo as well as his position within his law firm. He is not a trial attorney even though he may advertise it in his bio, so be prepared to settle with the opposing counsel even if it is not in your best interest. If the business side of the law ( i.e. his own self interest) conflicts in any way with the pursuit of justice, he will most likely choose the business side every time. He operated more or less solo within his firm, and did not have the adequate support staff in house to address all of the pertinent issues involved in our case - it was one of the reasons I felt the case was compromised. He was overwhelmed, un organized with papers everywhere, understaffed, did not have a good solid legal strategy. In the end, he failed to adequately represent me and his overall representation was poor.
