Review Donald Haslam
  • Great Family Law Firm

    5.0 stars

    Anonymous review posted on

    I did a considerable amount of attorney shopping for my divorce case and finally got a referral Mr. Haslam's office. He and his staff were very attentive to every one of my needs, explaining all of my documents in detail, and always answering my questions completely. I went through a very difficult high conflict custody case that did not seem it would ever end before I hired his firm. Because of his vast knowledge, hard work, and respect by not only other Attorneys but local Judges, was able to receive great Orders in my case. I would recommend Haslam & Thorne to anyone who is involved in a family law case.

    I have no respect for Mr. Haslam. My divorce was handled very poorly. I sadly regret ever meeting him. I paid thousands and I lost thousands. My ex-husband's lawyer ruled the day and he made out like a bandit. It is my opinion that you should have nothing to do with Mr. Haslam...ever.

  • Awful Experience. Unprofessional.

    I had the worst experience with this attorney. He was not up to date on the latest in family law and seemed to be "skating by" as he drifts off into retirement. He forgot details and over-billed me. He kept repeating a case he worked on 20 years ago that made not impact on my case and it was like he was trying to sell himself using a has-been case that was so old. it took him forever to respond to phone calls. He is not up to date on the latest technology.

  • OUTRAGEOUSLY EXPENSIVE/NO RESULTS

    I spent 30k over two years and still do not have custody of my kids or child support. I only got a bifurcation because I had a fit that I had spent so much money and nothing to show for it. He had to do the bifurcation twice because the proper forms were not filled out the first time. Charges $500/hour and that adds up really fast and when all is said and done NOTHING HAS BEEN DONE. I think all of these family law attorneys are in cahoots to cause inter fighting to string the case as long as possible. Do yourself a favor and before you both go bankrupt go to mediation services where you are equally represented by one person who helps you form an agreement. Nobody wins except the attorneys!

  • Horrible Experience

    1.0 star

    Posted by James

    I hired Mr. Haslam after researching Family Law Attorneys in the San Bernardino County area. The Avvo ratings coupled with his experience in the field led to my selection. This turned out to be a horrible selection. Mr. Haslam charges $500 an hour for doing minimal work. Mr. Haslam offered very little, if any, guidance in the process. I was rarely kept informed on my case status and was charged for anything/everything! Mr. Haslam showed up for one hearing and fielded out others without giving me a heads up. This experience is one I wish upon no one.

    This attorney did not show up to court 4 times, sent someone else with no knowledge of case. I had to fill them in on what was going on. 1 of the times it was the night before court I got the call he would not be there and was on the phone 5 hours going over the case that I had already done with Don. I was then charged for their time, that it took to give them that information. He would forget things we discussed and have his paralegal call me to go over the same thing. I would be charged again. He did not bring up things in court that should have been handled. We went to court 12 times just to get a restraining order. He over charges double charges and did not represent me well in court.
