I hired him. I paid him in full. I did not get the service I paid for at all. I would not recommend him unless you sign a contract with a price list. He did not communicate with me about my case. Everything was always a surprise because he never kept in touch, so it was like a whirlwind having him as my lawyer. He never provided me updates. He never gave me a financial sheet explaining why he charged me over $2000 for my divorce, even though I request it from him repeatedly. And worst of all, he took so long to work on my case, only to get to court and the judge did not grant my divorce because Hosford was not prepared, according to the judge. So please research your lawyer, ask for prices to compare. I overpaid too much, and Hosford did not get my divorce for me. Having him as my lawyer has been more stressful than trying to divorce, because he never kept in touch with me. It really made me feel he just took my money and wanted me to just go away. I am still suffering financially and emotionally from my experience with him.
