Alex Demarco was recommended to me by a friend that attended the same university as he. After our initial phone call and subsequent meeting, I felt confident that he was the right attorney for me. Receiving the contract with the wrong client name and agreement terms, should have been my first clue that although Alex says (and quite possibly believes) all the right things, his attention to detail and ability to deliver falls short.
Over the course of 7 months, my experience with Alex was wrought with one excuse after another. Here are just a few...("My sister-in-law is in the hospital." "You've caught me at a pretty horrible part if life at the moment." "Sorry, I was so sleep-deprived from jury trial." "Understand i have a murder case that's absolutely occupying my time here.")
Initially, I was sympathetic to his plight. But eventually, I came to the point where I just wanted my lawyer to represent ME (his client, who incidentally paid in full upfront). That, and his adventurous Facebook posts didn't seem to jive with the excuses he was giving me. In the end, it took Alex 7 months to obtain a simple video from campus pd, and that took me riding him the entire time. Although incomplete evidence was eventually supplied to him, Alex neither questioned/followed up it, nor did he return any of my attempts to contact him further. I regret 100% my decision to hire him. Given my personal experience, I'd recommend steering clear.
