He broke my trust and ordered transcriptions from a court reporter that were simply not needed. When I questioned him about why he ordered these (not needed) transcriptions, he started squirming and could not look me in the eye. I knew he was not telling me the truth. I told him to send not needed transcriptions back to court reporter. I paid court reporter 6 checks totaling 6 hundred dollars and owe about $450.00 for much needed depo. When I talked to another person that is involved with my case that I did not feel right with court reporter, I was told that she (court reporter) was a witness in a civil divorce case and had changed jobs, phone numbers and was very hard to be served supeona and is still "laying low" to avoid service of process by the spouse that was cheated on. You can google this court reporter and nothing comes up with her name, address or phone number. Seems odd that a court reporter that should be easy to find, simply can not be found. I wonder what kind of relationship he has with this court reported although I will not accuse him of that publicly. I know this attorney has the copy of the depo that I need badly to continue with my case. He is seemingly trying to hold the depo that I need as "ransom" because I do owe him some money. I have talked to other attorneys that say he can not do that. He will not return emails or phone calls even with me even with the threat of filing a complaint with the Alabama Bar. His alliance was with a court reporter and not (me) his client. Impossible to get statement of what I owe, address, phone number of court reporter. I have given him many chances to just tell the truth to me and he has yet to do that. I feel he was trying to "run up" the bill with the court reporter and when I questioned him about it, he was not truthful. I had told him the first day I hired him that being truthful was very important to me and that he not "sell me out". I have paid this guy thousands of dollars. I now have no choice but to go to the judge to force him to give me the copy of the depo that I need to continue with my case. This is the same judge that "ordered" him to amend the complaint which he should have known to do on his own. He is lazy, hot headed, not truthful and is only in the business for the money. It almost now seems like he is working for the other side. I would not recommend him to anyone. I can prove everything that I have said to be the truth. He lied to me and got caught. I still can not find the court reporter, her phone number, address or any kind of statement of what I owe, Several other people tried too with no success. Thank god I have the cancelled checks that I paid her, 6 checks total= $600.00. Knowing that this attorney has a copy of the depo I need badly I was advised to go after him. My money comes hard and I hate that this attorney has wasted much of it. Does not return emails, phone calls ect. Again I hate I ever hired this guy.
