We have been in the Illinois Family Court System for a total of 10 years. We have hired a total of 6 different lawyers (Lake, Will, and Cook County) to support our family. We initially hired Mr. Meyer based off his military experience, and his ability communicate orally that he understood the dynamics of military related custody situations and employment of overseas contractors. It was to our GREAT dismay that we spent over $17,000.00 in less than 7 months to accomplish nothing at all. A total of less than 5 court appearances, 1 in office consultation (initial), various email traffic with a lot of lip service, phone calls that were not beneficial to accomplishing anything but making excuses. Not a single order was entered, and in order for our file to even be transferred to another attorney... we had to pay a significant amount of money that Mr. Meyer claimed we owed him. After hiring a new attorney, in less than 6 months we gained a Sole Custody, a Warrant for Back Child Support, Revoked Visitation, for less than $10,000.00. Maybe with a little more time under his belt, a stronger sense of moral compass; Mr. Meyer would succeed. It is a shame that his years in the military didn't invoke those qualities in his law practice.
