I retained Mr. Turnbull based on the recommendation of a mutual acquaintance. I had already hired another lawyer but that attorney turned out to be downright incompetent, to the point of possibly hurting my case. When you are faced with a serious legal matter, it is not the time to bargain shop. The old adage of “you get what you pay for” becomes clear. Quality representation comes with a price, but it far outweighs the cost of the ramifications of having an attorney that does not take the time to learn about your case and who makes shady deals with opposing counsel in the hallway to the courtroom in order to wrap up your case quickly so he can make out like a bandit with your retainer. You really need an attorney that not only has the legal expertise, integrity and skill level required, but who also has the necessary support staff to properly handle your case. The difference between Mr. Turnbull’s office and my former (inept & over his head) attorney was like night and day! Mr. Turnbull and his associates met with me to provide me with an overview of my case, reviewing with me the strengths and weaknesses without sugarcoating anything, nor promising outcomes that were not feasible. From there on, I was provided with a clear plan of action, detailing exactly how Mr. Turnbull was going to proceed with my case. His legal assistant Gina always returned my phone calls and kept me apprised on any new developments with my case. I never felt blindsided by any rescheduled court appointments and Gina was always available to answer any last-minute questions I had. Having a legal matter is a source of great stress and frustration but having an attorney that is experienced and competent allows you to navigate the legal system without losing your sanity. I was most impressed, however, with Mr. Turnbull’s litigation skills in the courtroom. Prepared with binders full of case law research pertaining to my legal issue, Mr. Turnbull knew the technical issues of my case inside and out. The briefs and motions presented to the court were well-researched and well-written. Despite the anxiety of having to be in court, I felt at ease with two skilled litigators at my table. While still being courteous and professional, a reprimand (or several) from the Judge did not prevent Mr. Turnbull from persisting in pressing an issue that was crucial to my case. Had it not been such a serious matter, it would have even been entertaining to watch Mr. Turnbull mop the floor with the opposing counsel, who was nowhere near his caliber of litigating. He had the confidence, knowledge and experience to zealously represent me. Most importantly, he was PREPARED and no matter how dismal the outcome may seem, they key to a successful representation is a lawyer’s preparation. Due to his assiduous preparation of my case, he was able to negotiate a very hard to obtain resolution to my case. I was very satisfied with his legal services and how he handled my case.
