worst Lawyer EVER.
Hired MR. Briggs for a criminal case which was a huge mistake since it wasn't his best part. here is how it went. 1- explained the case. 2- Asked for the fees and was hired. 3- he talked highly of how he's going to win the case and what his plan is and I went home with the idea " he's the best in town' 4- got to court case gets pushed and pushed and pushed. 5- gave him every shred of evidence to have the case dismissed and cleared. but no I was wrong. Communications is really bad. you won't hear him him Period. shows up late for court and you have no idea what's been said and done. Now MR. Briggs offers you to go ahead and take a plea and that's how it will go. you ask him what have he done so far guess what ? No Answer what's next Court about ? no information what going to happen ? no response

Terrible representation
In my experience with this attorney and in my opinion, Mr. Briggs's legal advice was horrible for me and I thought his representation in court was even worse. I hired him for a divorce case and he threw me under the bus, I felt, and made a pathetic attempt at negotiating in my best interests. He never fully went over everything with me and he rarely communicated with me. He failed at forwarding documentation to me that was vital for the case. It felt like he was just wanting to get everything over with, regardless of what happened with me, so he could take his money and run. I would not recommend him for anyone.
