This attorney is personable and smart! He, however, is a last minute filer or a "minutes before the deadline attorney". Also, his office staff habitually lost copies of pertinent and confidential information. In several instances, I had to, not only, reissue copies of documents I had already submitted (4 times to be exact), but also, edit their own papers earmarked for court, I.e., correct facts, grammar and typographical errors (again, minutes before they were due). When brought to this lawyer's attention, his response was to pass blame by accusing me of not following through with his recommendations (in which proof, that I had, lay in the massive documents that had been in his possession for more than two years). That stated, this attorney waited almost two years to file--meaning, just before the statue of limitations were to run out. To be exact, he filed the first time, less than five days before the deadline. He continued the pattern with the appeal, filing it only minutes before the courts closed for the holidays. It became apparent, from where I sat, that he was neither cognizant of documents in his possession ; nor, had he, by any means, read materials thoroughly enough for a clear understanding of the issues, which is a possible reason why a
straightforward enough case, morphed into something other than the inital complaint. Finally, for all of the aforementioned, it is my sincere belief, that the perceived profitability of my case, trumped justice, fairness and just plain common decency! I have suffered great losses due to this attorney's negligence. I have, however, learned to pay attention to warnings offered by those who, before me, have experienced similar or the exact same treatment!
