Client Reviews
Michael W. June 29, 2021
The most irresponsible lawyer I have ever dealt with The man didn’t speak to me for the entire duration of the custody proceedings for my children and caused me to loose custody of my children. And charged top dollar. Not only this but on the day before my court case I went to the office to pay nearly $500. He refused to see me and he told his receptionist that I was scary and intimidating. When I was just there to see him to find out what was going on with my court case and pay. I was wearing shorts and flip flops, no sunglasses and only carrying my keys phone and wallet.
