I would not hire.
Jennifer kept interrupting to bringing up MONEY. Her answers to the very specific questions I prepared for this consult were, at best, flippant. and insouciant. Had I just put the $5000 cash I brought with me out for her to view... Perhaps she would have listened and "acted" interested in taking on a new case?

"No Justice For The Poor"
It was not a positive experience. Mrs O'Brien kept letting me know what I was asking was going to be expensive. I never once asked about cost. I didn't care about the cost but I'm assuming my appearance led her to believe I was unwilling/unable to pay? Regardless, I had my doubts about this and this law firm confirmed it. This was only a consultation but O'Brien was not sympathetic and clearly, was only interested in making sure I understood that lawyers cost money. I'm mortified that I even believed a lawyer would help and more so that she turned out to be exactly as I'd anticipated. Poor, poor showing.

Response from Jennifer O'Brien July 24, 2019
I am sorry you felt this way. When advising clients we make it a practice to discuss both legal issues and the pragmatic aspects of the client's matter, including the desired results of pressing a claim, the likely results, the possible results, and the costs of getting any results at all, along with the risks in putting forth a claim. The legal system is a system, with a process, and there is, unfortunately, a cost to taking part in the system. We give this pragmatic advice to all of our clients, because regardless of resources, we believe every client should make their decisions open-eyed.
