Poor communication, among what I thought were other critical errors
Be warned had massive problems with this firm. Refused what I considered a reasonable ada accommodation of talking over email where I felt best able to communicate, failed to contact a witness they subsequently claim I, the plaintiff, failed to secure a statement, also missed a couple of their own self imposed deadlines for updates among other things. Happy to provide any proof this site requires.
