Dishonest and terrible!!
Kerri did not represent me concerning the issue For which I hired her. She, instead, made agreements with my ex whom she knew and liked. She failed to tell me this. She did not complete discovery. Do not use this lawyer! She is dishonest. I have tried to talk with her for years about what she did and she will not contact or meet with me.

Response from Kerri Riley November 10, 2021
I am so sorry that you still feel so angry, more than ten (10) years after your domestic case was tried, and that you have chosen to direct your anger at me. It is regrettable that the Judge did not share your perspective about your case. I am quite certain that you know that I did not make any agreements with your ex-husband, or communicate with him other than through his lawyer and with your consent, during your case, and that I do not know him on a personal level. Your case was fully prepared for trial, tried, and you were, and obviously remain, unhappy about the outcome. Again, I am so sorry that the Judge did not see things your way. I met with you multiple times afterward to discuss the outcome of your case, and provided you with multiple copies of your file, but under the circumstances, I declined more than ten (10) years ago to represent you any further. No matter how many times you call my office, I am not going to meet with you again. I wish you peace, good health and healing.
