Posted by Edward's lover's Ex
He was hired by my ex wife to screw me over in my divorce in the 1980s when he was with Jacoby and Myers out of Montgomery Wards department stores. Right up his alley and in my opinion he was always borderline ethical in every filing he did against me. My attorney ripped this guy a new one on multiple occasions as all he could do was subpoena me 9 times in 7 months for contempt of court even after the divorce was final. All were bogus. Nothing stuck but they just kept costing me money to defend myself against all the false accusations. He was financed by my ex's married lover with two big retainer payments to keep harassing me, until the judge put a stop to it. I questioned his ethics the entire process as did my own attorney. He played games to where my ex would agree and sign anything he suggested or wanted her to. This guy cost me over $15K of wasted legal fees back in 1985 because of his games. Today, I view it as a bargain for not having to be with my ex. Today she is a very lonely person and it all has roots with this excuse of a lawyer. .
In these other comments, he clearly has never changed and sounds to be just such a big scumbag as he was then and prays on emotions and is more than willing to take people's hard earned money for himself. I can only say, stay away from this guy. He is real bad news.

I used this attorney as my friend had used him prior. My case was a bit more difficult but nothing that could not be solved. We went to court 3 times in 2010 only for Mr. Bisson to say it was easier for me to close my child support case since I was working and my ex wasn't so I'd probably have to pay him even though I have my child 88% of the time-really? He told me since my CSS case would be closed, I would not be entitled to any child support. As of March of 2012, I hadn't heard from him since October of 2010. You bet I'm sending him a request for the unused portion of my retainer. I had to end up hiring another attorney this year 2012. Don't waste your money.

He seems like a nice guy but he sucks as an attorney! DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY!!! He is disorganized, out of date (no email contact or cell contact), and does not know how to present a case. I got screwed and it was ALL because of how he failed to handle things properly.

When I first met with Mr. Bisson, it was over a simple child support order. A case that in the past (before hiring Mr. Bisson) only required two trips to the courthouse within maybe 2-3 months. Mr. Bisson recommended having the case reviewed since we hadn't changed the child support order in over 3 years. Since hiring Mr. Bisson, it has now been 5 visits, and over 1 year! Each time costing me more money.
Mr. Bisson showed up to court unprepared, and stumbling over his words. Each time seeming to irritate the judge more and more. On more than 1 occasion his answer was "This Judge doesn't like me, next time we'll try it in another court room..."
My ex, who doesn't even have an attorney, really lucked out!
