Robert Toale was hired to represent me in a criminal case in Terrebonne parish. Based on his online profile and what my friend read about him she hired him. She was quoted a fee that was more than any other lawyer was asking for, but because she wanted me home and thought he could do the job, she went with him. He was paid over 10 thousand and I was sent a lawyer that worked for him or with him Alex Kriksciun. He explained his bosses history and how good they were and what they were going to do for me.
Well, nothing ever happened. Some motions were put in but I never went for any of them. All that was told to me was I was being railroaded. So 6 months later I'm told that they need more money to continue on my case. I don't know why or what they did. I never met Toale, he never was in court on my behalf once, from what I gather he was going to conventions and meetings. Well if he wasn't planning on being my lawyer or represent me to the fullest, he should not have taken my case. Alex went to court on my behalf maybe 2 or 3 times for a bond reduction that did not benefit me at all, and then he made one more appearance. Other than that useless motions were put in.
So I sat in jail for 2 years, then was taken to court to plead guilty on all charges. No kind of benefit came from hiring Robert Toale. As a first time offender I was told it was in my best interest to plead guilty to all charges. I never was able to pay them anymore money but at least Alex showed up to my plea date.
Turns out that many of the people that were arrested along with me got much better deals, even those with criminal records and one who was a repeat offender came out better than me. The owner of the business I worked for got money back that was confiscated and she also got the same amount of time I received only she had a public defender. So I should of just went with a state provided attorney and I would of most likely gotten a better deal. Also employees that worked at another store were released on bond and never returned to jail. So their lawyers were able to work out a great deal for them. All I was told by my lawyer was "No one is getting a deal."
Besides making the choice to work at that store around that product the worst choice I made was allowing Robert Toale to "work" on the case. I would/could never recommend him.

I would highly recommend the law office of Robert S. Toale. With my having worked in the legal field for 17 years, I am well aware that not all attorneys are created equal. Not all attorneys do what they should do or do what they say they will do. However, after receiving several referrals from several different sources, I contacted the office for assistance with a family legal nightmare. From the beginning of the nightmare to the proper, fair, and just result, I found the Law Office of Robert S. Toale to be extremely professional, informative, reliable, and dependable. I was upset, worried, and disappointed to be caught in this legal crisis, but I was surely thankful for the expertise of Robert Toale.
