I know what people think of lawyers. Those stereotypes have some truth-- but there two sides to every "story" and almost always a lot of emotion. And guess what? With EVERY court case SOMEONE WILL LOSE!! Whereupon somebody is gonna cry foul. Many will just cry--especially the children.
Real “divorce "smarts" = "don't start a fight." As Danny DiVito told Hubby in "War of the Roses; "There is no winning... there's just degrees of losing." Ditto probate, but with less damage to youg children. But boy, will your family turn on you.
Law is not like Wal-Mart. Nordstom's provides a different product and a different service than Walmart. So, too, with lawyers. Cheap or free is NOT the same as "full freight" --representation with real experience, real dedication and real expertise. BUT-- you can get a customized, tailored amount of work. This is called "limited scope representation". It's MUCH cheaper then "full freight".
But if any lawyer tells you ONLY what you want to hear... beware. And if I tell you something you didn't want to hear? Guess what? It is because IT IS TRUE! I am not on Avvo trolling for clients. I am just the (no longer quite "lone") voice telling it like it is. Feel free to ignore me. People do. But I am still right about... almost everything. (And quite a few non-lawish things too- like the value of expertise, mastery of communication, and what works-- such as that.) Google me if you want the full picture. (Carroll, not Edna.)
Nowadays, expert lawyers will do the chunk of work you need done-- for a REASONABLE cost. I do that. But----WARNING!! I personally will not work with whiners. Just saying...
Choose your poison, my friends! But choose carefully. And no, I do not offer free telephone consults. I actually like helping people-- a lot--but I also actually have bills to pay, just like you do. Emails, OK. Calls? Not unless you are seriously thinking of engaging me. Thanks in advance.
Oh. And, AGAIN... I'm Carroll, which Avvo refuses to acknowledge. And yes. I will piss you off, if the truth hurts. I'm not trolling for clients here, silly me. I believe the truth is what serves people. I'm looking to be of service, to people who are willing to listen. (And I can pick up your attitude by how you post. So sue me.) But guess what? if something is your "fault" then you CAN change it. If it is 100% someone else.. you cannot. Sad but true.
P.S. Yes, there is one bad review. There were two--one utterly bogus. He took that one down, because he realized it was wrong, and he's not such a bad guy, after all. But NOTA BENE--if I answer you and you dont lilke it, don't take it out on me. I'm just the messemger. And. I am doing this for free. You gets what you pays for.
