Not my experience at all...
I don't know the details of your case, but I unfortunately have been in two massive litigation's, involving too many attorneys (on both sides), so feel I am "experienced." I met Tony Gordon after those trials, and have to say the work he's done on my behalf has been the complete opposite...I found him thorough, patient, available, knowledgeable, fair with his fees and charges and above all, in my case succeeded!! What more could anyone want for an attorney!!!
