    Gretchen is very thorough and professional in the work she performs. She treated my son as a real person instead of just part of her pay check. My husband and I would recommend her as an attorney to anyone!!

    Handy Law Group did an excellent job on my case. They were very thorough and conscientious. My attorney returned my calls on a timely basis and explained every step of my case to me. I would highly recommend this law office.

    What a joke! I spent well over $3000.00 dollars and this lazy lawyer did nothing, she talked my daughter into giving her X her only car, leaving her without transportation, and that was only half of what all she ended up giving him. This is the worst lawyer I have ever seen in my life. WHAT A JOKE YOU ARE!!!!

    Gretchen Marie Handy’s response: “I am sorry this client was disappointed with the service received. I wish he/she would have contacted our office directly to discuss their concerns as it is impossible for our office to respond to a client's concern when we do not know what case we are responding to.”
  • If Handy is your court appointed attorney. Ask for someone else, before it is to late!

    Gretchen Handy was a court appointed attorney. My first court appearance, she spent 15 minutes talking to the prosecution and 2 minutes to me. She gave me her telephone number . But she never returned phone calls, I repeat NEVER RETURNED PHONE CALLS, and never told me what she was doing on my case. On more than one occasion she scolded me for being guilty but never asked me what happen . I asked for and received my file. I found out she didn't do anything, The prosecution stalled, asking for continuance after continuance. Handy was happy to agree to all seven of them. When I was falsely arrested on a technical violation, I found out from ANOTHER attorney the prosecution sent an email telling Handy she (the prosecution) had me arrested because she was loosing control. Handy let it happen and didn't defend me against the prosecutor. I wanted a trial but Handy said that was her decision to make not mine. I reported this in a letter to her supervisor. The prosecution threatened my witnesses and Handy delivered the messages. Her supervisor told me I was "just lucky to have an attorney'" And any more complaints and I will not have an attorney. I thought I had the right to an attorney, but I was proven wrong.

    Gretchen Marie Handy’s response: “Unfortunately it is difficult to respond to ratings when you are unable to know what case you are responding to. Our office is sorry this client had a bad experience, however, there are some allegations that simply do not make sense. When we provide clients with their files, by law, we are not required to provide copies of attorney's notes. That being the case, it would be difficult for anybody to know what work an attorney did on a file simply by reviewing a copy of the documents contained in that file. It is highly unlikely that the Court would ever agree to seven continuances on a case. I do not have the authority to have anybody arrested so it would have been impossible for me to have my client arrested. Only a Judge has the authority to issue a warrant for an individual's arrest. I may encourage a client to resolve their case without going to trial if I believe it is in their best interests, however, that decision is entirely up to the client. I certainly would not hand deliver threatening notes to witnesses from anybody. That allegation is simply ridiculous. And, I find it difficult to believe that my supervisor would tell anybody they are "just lucky to have an attorney." This was obviously a case that I handled as a Public Defender. All of the Public Defenders I work with, myself included, take our jobs very seriously and do the very best we are capable of for our clients. It is very important to me that my clients receive due process and I that I work with them to get the very best possible resolution of their case.”
