Horrible Lawyer - 5 starsJames Whorley was my Divorce Lawyer. When I first discussed the case with him he gave me me his cell phone number and I felt comfortable with him.Come to find out he would never answer any of my calls or voice mails emails or text. If I left a message on their office voice mail no response. But when they wanted money. They would call nonstop.My ex-wife did so much harm to me.So how did she end up with $65,000 worth of Amish furniture about $80,000 worth of art. And I was awarded some art how. How did Jim just get me three paintings hight one with $900.00and not the $20,000 one? And the money from the house we sold in Ca? How was she able to keep my $25,000 in tools my sons gifts he gave me over the last 12 years my bible collection worth $7,000. Anytime we had to appear in court Jim was always late. I would call his office and the office would say he's proberly talking-to other lawyers.Why is he talking to anybody and not discussing the case with me. Im the one paying him $400 an hour. During court the last of the divorce. Jim was contacted by her lawyer that they wanted 2 credit accounts but Jim never did tell me. So he begged The Judge to het us get them by 5pm that day. She said no because we had plenty of time to get them.He never did say we dropped the ball and I'm sorry. I am very disabled. When I was in the hospital a few times and I would call his office and tell then I was in the hospital and they said it was fishy. And wanted the hospital to send the a letter.Her lawyer in the closing said I should go a foodbank if I needed food and she should not have to give support. She lied big time and got a restaining order. I called the local police to help me get some clothes and my credit cards. She came out and had a fit. Well they arrested me. How I dont know.Jim told the Judge that he would have it dropped. Well that's not what he did and I did a year probation because getting it dropped would have not made him anymore more money. Of course he charged me $1,500.00 to take the plea deal deal. Total cost was about $10,000. I know Jim would say but you got the house. Yes but if she would have put in up for sale in the first 30 days I would have had to give to her because the equity was only about $20,000 and with closing cost and realtors fees I would have had to pay to sell the house. So we sued her to sell the house. Well, a month before that. She took me to court say I was driving around the house. Well, It was not my truck. Not the color not the model. Well Jim charged me $1,500.00 to defend me. How come he didn't ask the court to make her pay it since it was a lie? Well, when we sued her the Judge to sell the house the Judge and if we wanted jail time? Jim said no I talked to her and she is good. WHAT? That was not Jims call to make it was mine. She destroyed my life and Jim gives her a pass. I can't tell you how upset I was.Well my ex-wife wrote him an excellent review before the truck court case. when the house was finally sold I had to pay $3709.00 in taxes to the new buyer. Well she got a refund check and I was owed that money so I called Jim and his office for 7 months to get this taken care of. Jim finally responded to it at 7:30 am one morning and said he will send out a demand letter. Well I called his office for 5 weeks and the said the would talk to him 5 weeks??? Finally his office sent out the demand letter because ehe never did.Well no follow up at all. I finally had to contact her lawyer and get half.My ex wife wrote a review Jim and said he's an excellent lawyer and a kind man. What was he doing talking to her when Well he is either an horrible divorce lawyer or she flirted with him or she paid him because he was on her side the whole time.I founds still has my service dog that she said died. Did Jim confirm that? No he did not. I do no recommend Jim Whorley as a divorce lawyer. If you want to loose everything hire Jim.
