He was very involved with our case from day one, he listens to the facts, well organized and not like all other lawyers that bill you for advice every question you have, he always made you feel like he was there to help. One of the best Family lawyers in the business and I would recommend to a family member or friend that needed his help.

Where do I begin? Let's try to make a long, painful story, short; my husband and I filed for divorce. My husband filed with the court, and hired an attorney right away. I was leary of hiring an attorney, because I didn't want to have to waste thousands of dollars. Too late. $6K later, I was awarded minimul child support, and spousal support going off of my OLD wages, from a job I had a year ago, prior the divorce. The divorce is not final, and I see no end in sight. My husband has the house, all the assets, including cars and toys. I have a high rent payment in a crappy apartment, that I struggle to pay each month. Emails sent to my attorney went unanswered for weeks. I would get an email from the opposing party with my attorney noting at the bottom, "how would you like to proceed?" I thought that was what I was paying you for?! We originally agreed on me paying a $1500 retainer (which was paid for) and $300/mo. being automatically drafted after that. If that was the case, why am I being charged interest, and my account showing 30/60 days past due? I'm overwhelmed, disappointed, and even more confused than when this all started. And don't forget the $6K in debt that will take me years to pay off. I should have stuck with my gut, and represented myself; I would have been out the gas money it would have costed me to get to court. I think my breaking point was when my attorney's assistant charged me $50 to drive to court, and $50 to drive home from court. Really?? Mr. Bacinett assured me mutliple times I had a strong case. He also told me during the first meeting that his business worked off of referrals. My referral; don't hire Stan Bacinett.
Endorsements from fellow lawyers are an important consideration for many when selecting the right attorney. Be the first to endorse your colleague!
