I am not sure what happened to the first review client , but as I worked with Barbara on my case in 2009 she did the great job and she was always on time and ready for court and always she had show up with strong and effective answers for the judge . Trust me she knows what she doing and when she needs to act to any things that comes up in your case.

she was basically negligent, and incredibly disorganized. About 2 years into our case we received a letter from her office that she had been suspended for 21 days. This prompted me to check her record only to discover she had 6 other clients filing complaints against her at the supreme court level.. By the time my case was over I should have filed a complaint too. Being from out of state most of the paperwork i filled out had to be sent through mail. (another lawyer i had concurrently, in my state, would fill these out for me.) She would mail me documents to fill out and i mailed them back for her to send to the immigration department. She forgot to send one of the time sensitive documents that I sent to her by its deadline. We also paid for another immigration document to be filed and she lost the accompanying check. She would forget to bring necessary documents to critical court appearances and before our first hearing she had ME photocopy all of the documents for the hearing because she forgot to bring them. In this instance i Also had to figure out which of my personal documents were relevant to the case to give to the prosecutor and photocopy all of those too. She asked me to do this THE NIGHT BEFORE our hearing. I had to make 3 copies of everything. Literally took hours because i wasnt sure what was important so i copied it all. At our final hearing she was over an hour late. Thankfully they had not called our case because being from over 1000 miles away, rescheduling would have been a tremendous burden for us. I was a nervous wreck. And when she finally did show up, once again, she forgot an important document necessary to our case; proof of the previous judge's favorable verdict. (the location of immigration court was changed to Bradenton, and our previous judge had passed away, so this type of document wasn't easy to locate and was very important.) fortunately i had this with me, but never knew how important it was to the case. Was never told. I just always had everything with me. Now she came with a box of papers. Dont know why she didn't have something so necessary with her and not even know it until the day of. She was totally unprepared. Ultimately, 4 years later, we had a decision in our favor, but working with her was a nightmare. i never trusted her to do anything completely or timely or correctly. She was incompetent.
