Attorney Evans was hired by me from December 2010 to June 2011 to handle my divorce and child custoday.
Dislikes: 1) Attorney Evans had very poor response time with returning emails and phone calls. I would send her e-mails and call her almost on a weekly basis about my daughter's erratic behavior after parenting time with her father and I got no response until a few days before we were due in court and that was only to pay for her services.
2) Attorney Evans presented only one event from my journal in court during my divorce, when she should have presented all of it. Things like my daughter's behavior becoming erratic. Her not sleeping unless me or my mother were holding her, and when she did finally go to sleep, she’d wake up in the middle of the night screaming about a monster whom she described as “Daddy,“ she would hit kids at school, she wouldn’t mind me, in fact she’d hit and bit me. At that time, I had no idea where my ex-husband was living at when he had our daughter because the marital home was foreclosed on. My daughter would come home hungry, hair uncombed, smelling from not being bathed, and she started putting her fingers between her legs and rubbing herself. Not of these things were ever presented in court by Attorney Evans.
3) Attorney Evans was very unprofessional and spoke to me as if I were a child if we did not agree on something. I specifically told Attorney Evans that I wanted my ex-husband to have supervised visits only because of his abusive nature. Instead of advising me on how to go about this, she spoke down to me reminding me that she was a lawyer and had been practicing law for 17 years. Hence I felt wrongfully pushed into agreeing to sharing joint physical/joint legal custody of my daughter.
