very negative experience
Greg Wilcox was bizarre in the couple hours of consult I had with him for elder Medical planning. I saw this amazing CV and a recommendation for him from another non bay area lawyer. But then - he seemed very confused about every background piece of info I gave him. He couldn't answer any of my questions that were novel. He only repeated information that I already knew from online sources or the same talking points that I think he lectures on. But he was unable to retain information or comprehend my specific circumstance or questions. I found this strange. And he was also weird in his interaction- rudely interrupting my attempts to answer questions, barking at me to stop talking all the sudden. I felt this was odd and a sign of some cognitive problem he was having. I can be sympathetic to that...but he should not be charging $450 an hour in that state. I told him- that I can't seem to get my main questions asked and he told me to pay him more money.

Response from Gregory Wilcox December 22, 2020
"Anonymous": It a point of pride for me that I always go the extra mile to provide good service. For example, if I can solve a caller's problem on the phone with some advice, I'm very happy to do it. Further, my initial discussions with potential clients are always free of charge. Finally, I don't always have the answers my clients want to hear, but I do everything within in my power to find a solution to their problems. In an extra effort to make sure that potential clients and I are a good match, last summer I initiated client intake screening by my legal assistant. Above all other objectives, I want satisfied clients. I am very sorry that you have such bad memories of our work together more than two years ago. I am a bit surprised since you wrote to me on February 11, 2019, about some legal authority I had sent to you, "This is very helpful ! Thank you." Throughout our work together I did my best to digest your voluminous and detailed background information of uncertain relevance, and to understand and answer your complicated questions. I do remember you because you were the only client whom I have ever asked to stop talking. Eventually I went far, far beyond the time your deposit had paid for, I had provided all the answers I had, I could not see an end, and I needed to draw a line. I have been practicing elder law for many decades and served more than 2,000 clients; I suppose it's inevitable that at least one former client will not be happy. Greg Wilcox
