Ms. Giblin will ensure that your retainer check is cashed moments after you leaver her office, but it will be weeks before you hear back from her, and months before any work is done on your case. I was constantly in the dark about where my case was, none of my questions were answered in a timely manner, and my phone calls went unreturned for well over a week. Every time I speak with Ms. Giblin she always has a new excuse as to why my case is progressing so slowly. I understand that legal matters take time to progress, I don't expect overnight results. However I do not believe that it is unreasonable to have regular updates on where things stand with my case. I do not doubt that Gina has a firm grasp of the law, she has been able to adequately answer all of my questions, but I am less than confident that she is actually working on my case, and I certainly suspect that I am being billed for hours that were never actually worked. In the end, Gina might be technically qualified to handle many legal matters, but she is unable, and apparently unwilling to offer even a basic level of customer service.

Gina knows the law, but has terrible customer service. She keeps odd hours, often returning calls after close of business, if she returns them at all. Gina is rarely in her office, and employs what appears to be a professional excuse maker, it's always something new, Gina is sick, Gina is in the hospital, Gina is in court etc... I've worked with many lawyers, I know quite well that they are not in court everyday of the week. All in all, I think Gina's issues may be a result of her falling back into some substance abuse habits, (her criminal history is readily available online.) I'm all for giving people second chances, but I wouldn't waste another penny on Gina.

I have worked with dozens of lawyers in different roles. This one is as negative of an experience as I have ever had. She and her assistant emailed me a few times stating that she is going to call me, send me copies of this or that and I do not hear from her. I have to literally hound her and threaten to report her to the Bar etc for her to respond the she has the gall the bill me for the emails that I send to her asking what is going on when she has refused to keep me informed. This has gone on for months and it is now a joke.
I spent a long time interviewing lawyers and she said all the right things, we discussed how she billed etc and my paying for her to research simple law issues that she and any lawyer with experience should know and she said she did not bill for that. But I got a bill that says much different. She wrote a letter that came straight from the forms book after I already discussed and she said we did not need another letter because I sent one already.
