This man will yell, cuss, and belittle you and still not follow thru with what you hired him for!
Hired David Thedford to get custody of my step daughter. First he quoted us a price that would take care of everything. Prepaid in full. He did not show up for the hearing and sent a replacement that was thumbing thru our case on the fly. Then it was time for the final hearing. He requested more money and stated that it was not included in the original quote. Again prepaid in full. Once again he did not show up for the second hearing and sent a replacement. I truly believe we only won because the biological mother did not show up, and judge could see she was clearly not fit to take care of her anymore. Now that court is over we finally received our paperwork signed by the Judge and is full of mistakes! They even said that her biological mother appeared in court when she did not and said that my step daughter was a male among other mistakes! We have called and emailed several times and continue to get the run around.... "it's not a big deal", "We'll look into it", or "we will file an amendment", "we have hundreds of clients", "we've been on vacation" the excuses go on and on. After so many excuses and given the run around for so long I finally told David today that we need these documents to be correct! He proceeded to get upset with me and asked why we needed them. That what we have was perfectly ok! I explained that there is an open case of injury to a child involved and the police recommended that the paperwork be correct. He then proceeded to get more upset and said he would no longer speak to me and would from now on only speak to my husband. I am actually very scared to even post this review out of fear of retaliation. We still don't have the correct paperwork and he was so ugly on the phone. I am only sharing my experience for others to be able to make an educated decision when hiring a lawyer.

I hired this man for my sister and he was all talk. He made all kinds of promises and kept none of them. In addition, he is rude,crude and a liar. He never returned calls or answers to questions. When confronted, he called my sister stupid and cussed at her. I confronted him and he denied and lied about being abusive to my sister. He claimed to have contacted my sister but he failed to update address 3 times and blamed it on her. Paid him $2500 and then wanted $3500 more. He is worthless and deceitful in my opinion and experience. Read the other reviews. We will be filing a formal grievance. Other local attorneys I know have called him a disgusting human being. I am not hiding my name and would say all this in front of him.

Hired him for custody. Had to pay large deposit upfront and he never did what he was suppose to do. Never got my ex served, never went to court to have child support increased or anything of that sort and still wanted me to pay another 1500 dollars. Oh, and he yelled at me a couple times just for trying to get more information on my case.
