He gave my ex everything he asked for, didn't even try to defend me. He settled out of court, without my permission, with the opposing lawyer. Then he had the nerve to come and lecture me on his personal beliefs of how he would feel if he were the other guy. Boo hoo , not sure whose lawyer he was, but I can assure you that he wasn't working for me! Paid in advance, don't do that, he stops working for you!!
Response from James Hornsey November 11, 2013
Ethical and professional rules of conduct limit what I can and should say in responding to a negative review like this. I can, however, say that I am absolutely unaware of any former client of mine having voiced these types of concerns before and that if the person who left this will contact me directly I'd gladly see if we can determine if there was some misunderstanding about the outcome of your case and the manner in which my services were provided. To others reading this, I would point out that my standard client agreement indicates that I will take no action to dispose of or settle your case without your advance knowledge and approval and that I do sometimes try to get my clients to see the viewpoints of the opposing party so as determine what he or she finds important and so we can consider those issues in settlement discussions and trial preparation. I've had hundreds if not a thousand or more clients and while some of them may have been unhappy with the outcome of their individual matters I think I can safely say they'd each tell you I worked hard for them up to and though the end of their respective cases.
