Used this "lawyer" on a commercial case years ago. Instantly shuffled it off to associate, who was competent. Associate left for greener pastures & the case was run by a paralegal. Was very unresponsive & just wanted his check so he lost interest & lowballed a settlement with a million excuses to accept. By then I was sick of excuses & condescending tone. The biggest laugh was when I got his itemized settlement expenses where he billed me for a $50+ lunch. Wow, hang on to your wallet.

Interacting with Mr. Shimko was absolutely horrible and I would advise any future
clients to stay as far away as possible. He was recently sanctioned by the Ohio Supreme Court
and it is a good thing. He did not follow through with what he said he would do in the discovery phase and refused to return my file at the end. He has a bad temper and turned it on me unnecessarily.
