After going through a restraining order hearing, Mrs. Lukes offered a no contact order in lieu of the restraining order to which I had evidence to prove a physical attack on myself from her client, my ex-boyfriend, to which she has photographic proof of the physical bruises left by her client. This hearing was in September of 2013. It is now mid-January, 2014, and I still have yet to receive a copy of said no contact order that is officially signed by a judge to protect me from this perpetrator, and Connie, when asked, stated the order was temporary, only until the end of our custody battle. That was not agreed upon at our restraining order hearing, and she has yet to provide me the legal documentation. Every time I have left messages or mailed letters, she refuses to respond for at least a few weeks, if she decides to respond at all and tries to settle out of court within a few days of court proceedings, if not the evening before. She calls the day before a scheduled trial to ask for an email address stating that she doesn't have one to contact us with, and that she needs that to send documentation that she is going to be filing in court the next day, and proceeds without prior acknowledgement from the other parties involved with this information. I believe there is a law out there that states each party is to be provided with all pertinent documentation to their case from the other party's attorney's within an acceptable time frame, no matter who the attorney is representing? She frequently mail's out documentation on Fridays, and states in her documentation that she request's or approval back to her in writing by the next Friday, especially when we receive it on Tuesday or Wednesday, otherwise she will file it before our approval, and then states that we never responded in time to the courts... She also fails to bring to the courts actual pertinent information to make her clients look good in the eyes of the court. For example, her knowledge that her client is not following a court order of visitation by not picking up his own children, or that he had visitation during times that she herself put into documentation that she states he didn't, nor the fact that her client is allowing a child sex offender around children. Beware of her! Your case not being represented in a timely fashion if you have a case that involves her, unless you have an actual lawyer...
