    I went with Vicki given her prior career history as a judge and thought she could do something. She and her office do not return calls in a timely manner. They charged for making copies for me that I made for them. She charged for things that were not discussed with me and never happened (two mediations) or should have gone to the judge the first time (three discovery requests were flatly refused yet she still sent mine over with no problem!). I never received a monthly invoice, though I was promised one. The only invoice I ever received was AFTER I inquired about my retainer balance and was told I was suddenly in debt and I made it very clear I was unhappy with their lack of action. Before demanding my invoice, I would ask monthly the status of my retainer and WHEN they would respond, they would only say "it's okay. We'll let you know when it gets low." If your heart is set on hiring her, GET a monthly invoice and SCOUR that thing. You cannot trust her office. She caused me additional stress and as a result of her inaction also cost me custody time. I definitely do not recommend her and would award ZERO stars if I could.

    Initially thought she could help me so I retained her. I then had to fire her as my lawyer as she blew my confidentiality and did things that I did not tell her to do, nor did she have my consent to do (at the same time charging me for those things). This just escalated the situation with my spouse who then mis-trusted me. This became a huge fiasco because then my spouses attorney amped it up also. This totally stressed me out and I had to hire another lawyer, which was a big expense.

    I was very pleased when I first met with Mrs. Pinak, but as time went on I became very disappointed on how she conduct business. She does NOT return phone calls or emails, and neither does her staff. A good attorney will keep you informed on what's going on with your case and that the attorney is doing everything for his or her client. Unfortunately this is not the case with this particular attorney.
    PLEASE...if you are considering hiring this attorney, make sure you get everything in writing, including what she charge for her retainer fee. I CAN"T STRESS THAT ENOUGH!

    Vicki processed my divorce, represented me in court and is hands down impressive. She has a great character and professional attitude and not only carries herself well but offers professional and accurate representation for her clients. This will be a contact that I share and visit frequently.
