Excellent Lawyer
David Broome is a kind man and excellent at his job. He won my case and made a lasting impression. He is worth the money.

Would give no stars if possible
My dad used Mr. Broome’s services for his divorce, and in my honest opinion he would have been much better off hiring a therapist who knows nothing of law, because at least a therapist would have listened to him and learned the details of the case. Mr. Broome made no effort to defend my dad, or even remember what his case entailed. Anyone else in any other profession would be mortified to make a client spend most of the hour he’s paying $600+ for re-explain the case you’ve been paid to work on and investigate. Absolutely embarrassing. The Joe Biden of lawyers, without any form of endearing grandfatherly charm. Upon further inspection of the files sent to my dad at the end of the divorce, we’ve since found post-it notes and other annotations from either Mr. Broome or his paralegal or whoever worked with the papers, insulting my dad. To not only be so rude and condescending, but also so utterly wild and incompetent, while simultaneously charging a ridiculous amount for such a disservice is an absolute atrocity. My dad lost half of everything to a woman who spent most of my life abusing us both, and still has to pay her $5000 a month in alimony due to Mr. Broome’s incompetence and overall lack of effort. I can only imagine Mr. Broome is still working because he screwed up one of his own divorce cases and is unable to retire.

Incompetent to handle anything other than the simplest of cases
Broome charged me an up front fee of $7000 and allowed the opposing Attorney to drag the hearing out for several years. During which time he completely blundered my case and told me I needed to pay him an additional $1500 to straighten it out, which he didn't. If you're looking to hire an incompetent over-priced, then Broome is your man.
