Basically stole $3000
Terrible experience with this law firm! Hired Andy Maberry to handle my mother’s succession. He resigned before succession was closed. Was appointed another lawyer, Liz Williams, after Andy left. Paid this firm $3000. They did not accomplish 1 thing during the duration of 1 year. I had to call Liz to introduce myself to her, as I was informed of her representation via a letter in the mail. Needless to say, a couple of emails were sent, nothing ever filed with the court, and no progress on closing succession. I was sent a $125.00 bill which I disputed being that I had a $1500.00 credit when Andy left in August. Very disappointed with how my case was handled!

Response from James Graham April 13, 2023
We take our commitment to client satisfaction very seriously at our firm. As we explained repeatedly over the phone, in email, and in formal writing to this reviewer, our services are not rendered for free. This was outlined in the contract this reviewer signed (and chose not to terminate even after her original lawyer left the firm). While we are sorry that she is unhappy, we do require that clients pay for contracted services. We wish her all the best in the future.
