Dan Alexander was the rudest man I have ever met. He would ask you a question then interrupt you in the middle of your sentence with an insult. One time, he asked my witness a question, and when the witness tried to respond, Dan interrupted him and told him "if you speak like that infront of the judge, the judge is going to think you're on drugs".
This is before the witness even said he was willing to testify for me.(the witness actually did have a mental disorder) He asked ME for the witnesses information and I gave him the phone number of the witness and he got angry saying he doesn't want his phone number it's up to me to get his name, address, number, statement and all kinds of information on my own. Even though I felt that that is the lawyers job to do.
The witness ended up changing the phone number and wouldn't speak to me or testify and Mr. Alexander said it was all my fault. He blamed me for everything. He even asked me if I could pass a drug test one time out of no where. It's like he thought I was a lawyer and we were partners. Just to give you insight, I was charged with assault because a man was on my property threatening me and telling me he was going to knock me out. I told him to leave with a shotgun in my hands, while standing on my front porch.
I had witnesses, I never pointed it at him and he called the police first pretending to be the victim and they charged me. Should have been a open and shut case. The D.A. was going to drop the case if they could just talk to the witnesses (married couple) but since Dan never got their number and never stayed in contact with the witnesses they could not be reached. He blamed me of course even though I gave Dan the witnesses phone number. And Dan even spoke to the witnesses one time and failed to get all his information.
I really regret hiring this guy as my lawyer. If I had more money at that time he would have been fired, but he is the cheapest in Nashville. Since I was 20 at the time, and naive, I wish I had a review like this to tell me how terrible the guy was. (so I would have just used a public defender.) I would never write a review like this to damage someone's career but I feel like trusting this man on my case was the biggest mistake of my life. I was charged with two felony's and when it was all said and done it was reduced to a misdemeanor.
If I had a mentally stable lawyer on my case it surely would have been thrown out of court, because I did not break any law. So again if you want a drill sergeant like lawyer that will take your money and look down on you, well this might be the man for you. I remember he even did not show up to court one time. He would not tell me anything informative. The whole time this case was open I was always stressed, and worrying, and having a bad lawyer made it worse.
I would get real nervous when we had a meeting since I knew it was going to go bad. After I left our meetings I was always more confused about what was going on then before I spoke to him. I hope he reads this. OK. I'm done now...You have been warned........
