Dont use for divorse
I came to Jake on insistence from his staff that he knew what the court would do in a divorce. To quote them, Jake bragged about being able to call the award by a few hundred dollars. Jake avoided this question directly with answers like, I have handled 2500 divorces in my time. My impression Jake shoots from the hip. The first conversation he had my my spouses attorney was on the topic of how much this was going to cost me. Where I work this action would have created an ethics investigation and I was even billed for this call. Another huge mistake made involved me asking if working OT would affect the out come. Jake told me it would not. The outcome would be based on income before the separation date. Knowing I was going to get stuck with the majority of the bills I worked as much as possible after he gave me this legal advise . Jake was absolutely wrong with his advise. My OT was used in figuring the maintenance figure. In all, Jake's advise cost me close to 100K in extra Maintenance. Divorce is a hard undertaking. When confused and asking Jake questions he would start yelling. I came to him for advise not abuse. Looking back Jake offered very little advise in mediation. I was lead to believe he had my back. Jake didnt even know the tax consequence, but the spouses attorney sure did. Jake will pass that off as he is not a CPA. I ended up getting screwed. I asked Jake to get me to Mediation as fast as possible this ended up taking many months and costing 27k. This was settled in mediation and didn't go to court. If I had to do it all over I would find a younger attorney that had been divorced and knows the current law. Keep in mind all men's divorce guides state is an attorney doesn't know what the court will do is not worth their salt. Jake obviously doesn't .
