Hired to work through my divorce , was recommended by my counselor. Awful experience with him. When meeting with him he was rude and talked over me. My concerns and issues that I had were not considered. I saw a large number of cases on his desk and he looked overworked. When working through my divorce he openly bashed me to my ex's attorney which my kids heard. He refused to defend me and discriminated against me until I could not take it any longer and left him. In desperation, I asked him to stop my ex from moving my kids to another county. He did absolutely nothing to stop her from moving my children from their residence. She continued to let her walk all over me and would not defend me, but he was very quick to charge additional fees and time against me. I got hammered on my maintenance agreement because I used him. I finally ended up getting another attorney elsewhere to defend me and left him. If you learn anything, DO NOT HIRE HIM. You are asking for trouble.
Endorsements from fellow lawyers are an important consideration for many when selecting the right attorney. Be the first to endorse your colleague!
