Patricia Germer-Coolidge, P.C., Attorneys at Law
If I could give this lady negative stars I would do so in a heartbeat. Attorneys are hired for one reason assisting people with legal matters in regards to handling everything and speaking on that persons behalf while using Provided documentation. I hired Patricia in a family matter for my son to help me gain full decision-making rights, proper child support, limited or supervised visitations for his biological father, etc. Patricia was given hundreds of documents to prove my request and even provided documentation showing that my ex is known for falsifying information which would have thrown any credibility that he would’ve had in the courthouse out. I also told the attorney about hundreds of lies that he was telling prior and during a court hearing and she did not care. She clearly only cares about how much money she can drain from a family to financially hurt them as much as possible. Things were even so bad that she allowed the court system to incorrectly calculate child-support so drastically that every month I was getting $500 less than what I should have. She agreed to fix this after court and then never done so and left me to doing it on my own and now it is over year later and I’m still trying to get this corrected in the court system on my own. Due to her not doing her job she had endangered my son’s wellbeing over money. I have paid her a $2000 retainer fee and then after she has used it all she has decided that she wanted to charge me approximately another $2000. I don’t think she should be paid anymore than what I’ve already provided her from the retainer fee and I will not agree to pay her any more money for services that she didn’t provide. After speaking to several attorney offices for legal advice in consultations all of them were extremely surprised of the outcomes of the court hearings because the amount of documentation I had to prove every single ounce of requests that I was wanting. They agree that if she has done her job properly that I would’ve gotten everything I wanted and some. Another nail in the coffin is she refused to return my documentation to me for over a year and screened my phone calls purposely to avoid communication with me. So now because I have my back documentation back I have to wait for child support enforcement to finish correcting my child support and then a new attorney will come in to correct everything else.
