Yeah. Please save your money, if you think you're going to spend extra to get better service when it comes to this guy it completely inaccurate. I choose this guy because he was the first to call me after I filled out an online survey, and fear mongered me into thinking I needed 'the best', (my case 99% chance would have gone the exact same path with or without him, I was subsequently told this by both other people as well as other lawyers(1st time low bac dui case) I felt like the extra money however would be worth it because I figured it meant I would be getting better service and communication, maybe he would guide me through the process better and things of that nature. All I found, though, is that this guy looses all initiative once he has your money, (I should have listened to my dad about this- he warned me). There were so many times I tried to contact him and he never got back to me. He said he'd contact me with certain information on numerous occasions and never did. He said he would help me out in certain instances but never did. I only found out that my dui got taken down to a neg 1 after I sent him an email saying I wanted a different lawyer because he never bothered to tell me beforehand. (He said he did- he did NOT, I would have REMEMBERED). He showed up late for every single meeting we had, (like 2), and waltzed in on my court times about 2 minutes before the court was supposed to start-
one of the times I was terrified he wasn't even going to show up because he had barely communicated with me beforehand, (He hadn't even taken the initiative to contact me to say that my court was in 2 days, by the way, I happened to think about it and call him, thank the lord because I don't think he even would have.) He's extremely flaky and the fact that I gave this guy a bunch of money to do basically what a public defender could have done, and nothing but the bare minimum caused me colossal stress and anger over the past year. It was a huge learning experience for me. Now I understand why so many people don't like lawyers. Perhaps this guy is fine for someone facing serious charges or something but for someone with a not very serious offence stick with someone cheaper. Someone subsequently told me- never use those lawyers who respond to those online applications, as I was describing the situation. They're all shady, too bad I didn't know at the time I hired him.
