Did not listen
I met Jay at the Second Saturday Divorce Workshop. As I consulted with him on the phone, I got the impression that he was not hearing me in regards to our decisions and priorities. My husband and I are very non-contentious, have decided and agreed upon nearly everything, and anticipate a fairly drama-free divorce. I explained this to Jay, but he disregarded or argued with our choices, and seemed to foster drama where there was none. He didn't clearly answer many of the questions that I asked, and when I told him I thought I would have to postpone our first meeting in order to talk about some things with my husband his immediate response was "well I need to get paid!". I did not end up meeting with him or signing a contract.

Response from James Drescher January 13, 2018
Many divorce clients have difficulty accepting the realities of the divorce process--which is both complex and nuanced. A few cling to these mistaken beliefs despite being told "that is not how it works". When someone steadfastly refuses to accept this reality, I tell them they will be better off finding a different attorney. I was a volunteer presenter at the Second Saturday Divorce Workshop for quite some time (during which I confronted these myths in the short time allotted). This particular person, who I remember well, insisted repeatedly on doing things that the law would not permit --which included me agreeing to meet with her husband to explain the process. When it became obvious that the lady was not happy with my advice, I ended the series of discussions by saying there was nothing more I could do for her (or her husband) since she would not listen.
