He was persistent in treating me like a criminal and took my money but the case still has not been settled. Very unprofessional.

Brian K Thompson Atty
Retained for a $10,000 flat fee in 2013, Brian Thompson and his staff have pervasively failed to deliver any resolution as promised for a contested, out of court "time sensitive" succession. Out of an estate estimating well over $150,000, I was given a haul trailer with no documents for a bill of sale to prove ownership, calls are never returned by staff or Mr. Thompson himself for two consecutive years. His insistence that everything is the respondent's counsel's fault, and inconsistencies about everything from estate appraisal values, to my known whereabouts after repeated visits and phone calls are beyond intolerable. I have never received an itemized explanation of expenses, yet he was provided with a $10,000 cashier's check from the date of consultation because he claimed he was "very busy, and if you need receipt of estate funds in a timely manner, work needs to proceed immediately". Nothing was or to date has been done regarding the sale or division of succession property for two years, despite his deceptive statements, such as "holding the executors' feet to the fire" to get the case finalized so that I can move forward with putting this massive family betrayal behind me. After being compliant in every way possible, I have now been forced to report the case to the Louisiana Office of Disciplinary Counsel, so that this attorney can be investigated for deceptive and unethical behavior, DO NOT GIVE THIS MAN ANY MONEY!!!!

Spence David P
Four years ago I was a patient of Dr. Dean who worked as a partner with Dr. Spencer. When I went into labor, my dr. was out of town and the on call Dr was Spencer. I was in labor for 18 hours and he only showed up the last 30 minutes before I gave birth. The nurses kept calling him, but he did not show up until the next day. One of the nurses had to break my water so I could start pushing. When he finally showed, he was not patient during the delivery. He cut me so the baby would come out faster. My husband said the nurses in the room had shocked expressions when he did that, so I'm guessing it was not necessary for him to cut me. My baby ended up swallowing meconium because it took so long to deliver her and she had to stay in NICU for a week. I went to a different Dr during my second pregnancy and delivery this year. She was great. She came in every 1 to 2 hours to check on me and was their the entire time I pushed helping the baby come along. Comparing the two, I know now how unlucky I was to have Dr Spencer be on call during my first delivery.

Brian K Thompson Atty
We retained Brian K Thompson on January 31,2014, and paid him $3.000.00 to represent us when the succession of our parents were filed. However, he allowed them to obtain a judgment against us with even being in court. Moreover, he has spent over $2.000. of this money and we are further away from having our day in court then we were in January. Now, he need some 6 copies that has been filed in this record. Please pray that this attorney will be honest with us and have a back bone.

Giordano Law Firm
DO NOT use this law firm!!! These guys cant even fix seat belt tickets. They will take your money and you will never be able to even get in touch with them again. Paid them $1000 and never heard from them again. I had to go to the police station and pay off all fines. Was told a lawyer never even contacted them.

Very competant and professional I would want this man representing me in court. I felt like a person not just another case to him.
Tips & Advices
Each state has different mandates on how child support is determined. But there are some basic factors that underline how costs are determined in each state, including:
  • Income level of parent that needs to pay support (in the case of joint custody, the costs are determined by income of each party and the percentage of time the child spends with each parent)
  • Financial needs of child
  • Child’s standard of living before the divorce occurred
This is a divorce in which one party does not have to prove that the other’s actions lead to a deterioration of the marriage. The reason for divorce is listed as "irreconcilable differences" or an "irreparable breakdown of the marriage,” meaning the marriage was no longer working and could not be repaired.
Family law attorneys are helpful in cases where the two parties are not on amicable terms. The lawyers can act as intermediaries between the two parties and help them come to any settlement agreements, however long that may take. Lawyers can also help parties navigate tricky state laws regarding settlement agreements and child custody, thus expediting the process.
A contested divorce is one in which the parties cannot agree on either the necessity of the divorce as a whole, or how assets (money, property, etc.) and child custody should be split between them in the divorce. An uncontested divorce is when the parties are in agreement on how assets and child custody will be split between them. These divorces can sometimes be handled without hiring a lawyer.
It is possible for a couple to get a divorce without hiring a family law attorney. If the two parties are in agreement on how finances, child custody, properties, etc., will be split, then they can file the necessary court documents themselves and avoid the services of a lawyer.
