Very nice guy until you hire him, Non responsive, unprepared for court, no strategy to win, just goes along for the ride, doesn’t read emails but charges for them , and then gets surprised when issue comes up in court. You would never know if he would show up for court, you would be reminding him without a response dozens of times then he would show last minute and walk around, very incompetent, doesn’t have any DHS contacts, you have to provide it to him, never advocate for the client with DHS, literally tells the other side he is just there for the money, hangs on to the judge summary so he can charge to send it to you later, then charges but doesn’t send it, corrects errors in opposing counsel’s work, and charges the client, petitions are misspelled and you can expect to pay $2800 for each document he files. Therefore who can afford to reply ? Has no staff so you pay $300/hr for admin work. Having him in your corner was 3 times more stressful than the court issue. Also, won’t answer questions saying he can’t give you legal advice on the case or other petitions even though he was paid. Something very quirky with this guy. Sadly the case could have been quashed on day 1 if he was competent as other party lied on the petition regarding title 30 criteria, etc. motivated by filthy lucre and will milk you dry and will not advance your case . Will obligate you financially going way over the retainer.
Avoid and run away.
