She Was Not Interested in My Case
I hired this attorney for a divorce case and she did nothing. She asked for a $1,500 retainer which I paid and she cashed. The first month there was communication. After the first month, communication just about stopped completely. I would call this attorney and she would say she would call me back "after court" and she never did. I would leave messages asking her to return my call and I would send texts and she would not return my phone call. I do not believe she even did a half hour of work on my case. I have now asked for a complete accounting and money back on my retainer and I have received no response.

Will not represent your best interests
The consultation and the initial two weeks of her representing me were handled professionally. From that point, there was a lack of communication and focus on her part. And her billing practices are unethical to say the least. For example, I was billed almost $100 dollars for an email to and from the opposing legal counsel, and it took a month and a half to find out what the contents of that email was. While charging by the hour, she took a phone call from a family member, and from a client who had gotten arrested. She wouldn't answer any questions, told me she would call and never would. This went on for over a month, and I'm certain the only reason she ever contacted me again was because I asked that she no longer represent me, and for her to refund me the remainder of my retainer. So, when we were communicating often, and she was making phones calls and court appearances, I was billed $600 in services. When she didn't answer any calls or texts for over a month, she billed me $750 in services! I did not use her for negotiations, and even typed up my own legal documents once an agreement was reached with the opposing party. I have a ridiculous invoice for those charges that I wish I was allowed to post on this website so no one else falls for this game. I say again, when she was actually doing her job, I was charged $600, but when she did nothing for a month, I was charged $750. The reason for the breakdown in the relationship was due to her insisting that all communications and negotiations go through her. She kept stating that anything the opposing party and I agree upon will be rejected, because Jennifer had "experience" dealing with the opposing counsel. In reality, once the opposing counsel actually heard the agreement, it was advised that the opposing party accept it so that both parties could move forward. There were no objections whatsoever from the opposing legal counsel. I don't understand how she kept charging me over a month after I asked that she no longer represent me. I don't understand why she couldn't answer any calls of texts for two months. This is the first time I've ever needed a lawyer and I truly feel like that was used to take advantage of me. Instead of asking me whether I still felt I needed an attorney, she wanted to keep billing me for passing along information if/when she felt like it. The worst part about this, is that I Jennifer was recommended to me by someone I know she bent over backwards for to win the case. That's exactly why I say I was taken advantage of, knowing what she was capable of, and comparing that to the actual effort, or lack thereof, that was put into my case.
