|TX||Not Eligible to Practice - Administrative Suspension||1998||02/26/2017|
This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
Partially probated suspension means an attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. When the attorney returns to practice he or she will be on probation, meaning the State monitors the attorney's activities for a period of time in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior

It's been a little over a year ago since my custody and child support case, and I just wanted to say Kevin went above and beyond to help me and my family. The case kept on getting rescheduled and he did not charge any extra. At the time my ex was holding my daughter from me, harassing my wife and I,and was trying To get more money a week for child support that we were already struggling to pay..keep in mind I have my daughter the same if not more days than my ex. Long story short Kevin camE in the court room yelling at my ex's lawyer to not to talk to and to quit harassing his client! Even after all the lies and whining my ex and her lawyer tried to pull, and 4 court dates later my child support got lowered, my ex harassing phone calls , and her trying to hold my daughter all stopped.... our lives have been so peaceful And more enjoyable since Kevin took care of this... I don't understand the bad reviews on here, but Kevin is a great man and did what no other lawyer would do for me..

I don't know even where to start. I hired him in June of 2013, paid him $1200 when I had no job and was broke raising 4 kids on my own. Every time I would ask him if he has filed anything at court, he would never respond. His anwers were always vague and it would take him forever to respond. I mailed him all of the financial proof he needed and he never responded if he received it after I asked him several times. It took me a very long time to gather all of that information and all for nothing.
I had no job for a long time because I was a stay at home mother for 4 years and I told him that I was desperately looking for a job to feed my children. I told him that I needed the child support enforced immediately. He never did that and I was told by other attorneys that that is the first hing they do. With my first divorce, my childsupport was in place after two weeks of seperation and he I am almost a year and still no child support in place. This is so upsetting and sad.
I told him that he has not a good lawyer and it seemed not to matter to him. I told him that I was concerned about his practice, and not once he showed that he cared about our lawyer relationship. He would tell me that he couldn't reach the other atty. Everything was a bunch of lies. To this day, he never ever sent me a copy of anything that he submitted to court if he submitted anything to court. Now my trial is in two weeks and I don't know squat. I'm so upset .. I am going to sue this attorney and I'm glad he is no longer practicing.

I found him on LegalMatch. He had many good reviews with a few bad ones. I thought nobody was perfect so I ignored the few bad ones.
Here is what went on. He told me not to talk about certain details in the court. And he told me all these small details would be covered by the agreement. Yet the details he made with my lawyer were the not the same he told me. And the details on the agreement is almost killing me. Later when I asked for his note, he refused to show it. I asked him to contact my ex-‘s lawyer, he said he couldn’t. Everything would be according to the transcript. And the transcript didn’t have details I talked with Mr. Prendergast because he told me not to talk about it on the court.
After the court, he claimed he couldn't talk to my lawyer anymore (that was before I terminated our contract).
He refused to give me an itemized sheet after I terminated the contract, writing “With regard to my time, you paid a non refundable retainer which etained my services. I can give you the cases law on this but I follows exactly what is needed. Therefore if you "fire me” you don't get "your money back" Many many people do that and that is why we have non refundable retainers. That basically is a scam and you are not the first person to try that.”
So I wrote him this email “I had great memories. I remember how we signed the contract and how you didn't give me a copy with page numbers written by me. And you substituted with other papers and said it was because of printer problem. You said all the stuff on the substitute was the same as the original. I remember you said you would return what was left. You know what you did to trap me. And when I ask for a time sheet it is common sense not spam. Yes you are a lawyer and proof is what you count on. And that was why you took pictures that day. May God deal with you.” And to this he responded “you have a new attorney so I cannot speak to you.”
He surely was not for me. Once he felt he secured the money from me, he avoided doing anything . I ended up in a situation like this: I need to move out in 2 weeks as set in the agreement but have no money to do so. My ex- actually earns $130K/year. We have a condo that was paid off. And I have no money to move because of Mr. Prendergast's service.
