I first encountered this attorney when my father had her do his will years ago. I then had her do mine. She seemed fairly knowledgeable but somewhat unfriendly, business oriented, not very chatty. As the years progressed, I used other resources regarding my will and had no contact with her until recently. My father had her create a trust as well as his will. In the last couple of years we had seen a marked deterioration in his health mentally. He was not paying bills. He was very forgetful, confused, always losing things. He was exhibiting the early signs of dementia. I was working with the doctor trying to have him evaluated, trying to get him some help. I was not trying to put him in a nursing home. I just wanted to offer him some help so that he could stay in his house and live comfortably. His family doctor actually said he thought it was dementia and he needed further evaluation. But the neurologist refused to call it that thus tying my hands somewhat. Without a doctor stepping forward and saying so I could not legally pay his bills or anything else! I called Aline for help thinking she might have some suggestions, some resources for us to consider. She was rather sharp with me and said there was nothing we could do. She offered no help, no advice. She said she was very busy and told me that I could make an appointment if I needed to talk to her. This was sometime in early 2012. I actually went to see her in person later that year and she was basically the same with me then. She told me what she charged by the hour and said if I wanted to schedule an appointment she would talk to me then. Otherwise, she could not talk to me. Now, I understood that I just showed up. I understood that she was busy. But I live out of state and didn't exactly have the convenience of scheduling an appointment and coming back. I needed some help then. I thought maybe, under the circumstances, she might see me.
