During the initial consultation, I told her I needed an attorney with teeth who's looking out for my best interests and fight for me. She promised everything, but only excelled at charging me (over $10k). I did all the work.
What work did I do? Well I'm a CPA and ex-auditor, and did all the hard research and forensic accounting. I ticked-tied all the financial data, drafted timelines and summaries of the case and circumstances. I pulled phone records, tax statements, pay-stubs, etc and drafted detailed workpapers for audit evidence. Everything was handed to her in a pretty bow. Unfortunately, every conversation I had with her I would have to 'start over' and explain EVERYTHING....again, and again. She had no memory (or didn't care).
Through my due-diligence, I even found that my ex lied on the divorce papers, and submitted false information to the courts. Her only comment was, "good luck getting the DA to care." So basically I did all the work, we went to trial, and lost my shirt to both my ex and Melissa.

This attorney charged me for a consultation only to refuse to take me on because my ex's attorney was Les Hait. I waited for nearly an hour AFTER our appointment time and spoke for nearly 30 minutes. She wasted an hour and a half of my time and money I could not afford to just "throw away". I was asked over the phone who my husbands attorney was, she had ample time to cancel the appointment.
During my wait I could hear her yelling at her employees, threatening that if she didn't get paid, neither would they. The poor young ladies seemed very nervous and unclear on what to do next. When I asked if she was always like that one replied "I'm not going to say anything, I need my job". Like another poster pointed out, she acted as if she was a devout, loving, fair, forgiving Christian during the meeting, which un-nerved me since I had just heard her verbal abuses to her staff minutes before. I would suggest anything but hiring her.

This lawyer pretended to be Christianlike but once hired, she not only didn't do the things she said she would, but forgot what she said she'd do! She didin't do ANYTHING! She had her assitant named Melissa as well do everything, and she made soooo many mistakes I couldn't keep up with her !! She kept giving my ex my stuff and everytime I'd call to tell her to fix it, they charged me! Even on the third or 4th request, they charged me! The girl answering the phone was rude and mean when I told her I was frustrated with the lack of service !
DO NOT HIRE HER !!
