Worked diligently for my case. Divorce cases are not like what you see on TV -- they take a while. Mr. Wigoda and staff stayed with me and communicated with me throughout.

Hired as the children's lawyer. Charges 395 per hour. Wants to "take things step by step" = drain your money. Said he would "wrap things up in 3 weeks" 3 months later, nothing. He was also more concerned about getting paid, than the true welfare of the kids. Attempted to schedule a meeting during their father's visitation time, which tells me that he didn't even know the visitation schedule.

I had a taxy levy on my wages, could not afford to pay my current invoice of his. Previously, I had always paid my bill. When I could not, he tried to garnish my wages, but that could not happen since the IRS was taking money from my paycheck, over 70%. He then put a lein on my home, the home where myself and two children live. The two children he was representing in my divorce. He would go to court when he was not needed and charged me for that. I sent him emails and a voicemail pleading with him not to do this and he did not respond to me. He was supposed to represent my children, he responded at first to my daughter's texts, at the start of the case. Then he stopped responding to her altogether, when she was most anxious about the visitation situation.
