I paid good money to Jeanne. $6000.00 was paid up front to give my attorney a good headwind for a successful outcome. $1500 was the agreed contract for representing me and my girls during a Family Access motion. It was explained as the easiest of all filings in a family court. Of which, I understood and asked for help due to how emotional I was after 4 1/2 years of being restricted by the mother. It took me a long, long time, to secure the funds for this issue. Jeanne went to this access motion with me and constructed a continuance, laced around a stipulation with the abusing party, in the mother, against my wishes or advice. She got an attitude with me minutes before this hearing I had been waiting for to coerce me into accepting her idea. I had four and a half years of diversions documented and in her possession that represented my position for access that very day. I said infatickly that I was against this and any other tactics delaying my relationship with my girls. She told me if the mother DID NOT stick with the stipulated agreement, she would immediately file and drag her butt back into court. After numerous attempts and against my advice as her client, she would not adhere to my concerns that she was paid for. She never did get me back into court and allowed another 5 continuances and 6 months to go by without representing me or my girls position. She was kept informed of our contract and our scope through numerous reminders that had me exhausted in a way that was to be stopped by hiring her. She walked me into a fraudulent continuance without merit and immediately billed me eating up the $6000.00 I had faithfully given to her firm. First problem was the incorrect billing. The second, was the contract saw a flat $1500 fee for the Family Access Motion, $3500 retainer for contempt, QDRO, and modification filings. Third, this adds up to $5000. I gave an EXTRA $1000. An extra $1000 for an insurance as her new client, of my commitment. She allowed the other side to file her own modifications and played me out over the six month period of continuances of July-Dec. 2015. She tortured me through this six months by having me do visits that had the mother still keeping my two girls from me. She allowed continuances all the way to the mothers modification hearing. She represented me at a minimum and never once represented my character that she agreed upon being hired. I won the Access motion, but nothing was asked of the court to hold the mother accountable while securing this will not continue to happen. Funny thing is the mothers modification hearing was just to be days later. She withdrew from me two days before the other sides modifications leaving me hi and dry under the guise of being a difficult client. In fact, the worst she's ever dealt with. This couldn't be further from the truth and she should feel fortunate that I don’t use this space further to ensure its readers understand the convincing nature in its prior convictions. I want to make it clear that Jeanne Foster is a con and a liar. A personal situation such as a Family court is sensitive and serious. Jeanne displayed a professionalism only recognized by an idiot and representative of a bottom shelf D rated attorney. BE AWARE and Best of Luck.
