I hired Kent to handle my divorce and custody matters. I gave him close to 8k over the course of a two year period with no results. I gave him an eye witness to hard core drug use in my children's home and he didn't bother to call and interview her. My money is long gone, Kent is long gone, I haven't seen or heard from my children in a month, and I am still not divorced. If anyone is interested in filing a class action law suit against him please leave a message here and we will put one together. I gave this guy everything I had.

The short: stay away.
The mean: Argued continually against taking spouse to court for contempt - two years. Never did any research. I did the research and provided all of the documents, computations, accounting, RE research, hired work done while Kent did nothing. He finally told me that if I put a lump sum of money on his table he would produce a divorce in two months. I did but he did not. Obtained an agreement in writing and signed but never even bothered to put it into formal motion form (by paralegal) to be submitted. He no longer answers phone or e-mails. I had to locate him through the building manager to get a photo copy in PDF of the agreement.

One year has passed since my divorce was final and I'm just now finding out my notarized Quitclaim Deed was never filed. When I brought it to his attention he referred me to my ex husbands lawyer who obviously wouldn't take my call. My return call to him to fix this went unanswered, leaving me to figure out the repercussions. Susan. 2nd posting.
