There may be an impression that this rating is an outlier or from an unreasonable person due to the fact that I gave Harold the lowest marks across the board. This is not true. Here is the reason behind my dislike for Hal.
Over a period of more than 10 years Hal has neglected to take any action or notify me about a small case that I entrusted him with while I served active duty in the USMC. Approximately 11 years after I hired him, 4 combat deployments, graduate school and numerous moves he has still not taken any action and refuses to answer my emails or phone calls. When I can get a hold of him, which is roughly once a year, he has continually given excuses as to his negligence. I have been more than patient with him and will shortly pursue legal action against him unless he resolves my issue within one month.
Harold has obviously deemed me a low priority. While my case may not be high profit this is an issue of professionalism and integrity. Do not use him as a lawyer.
