The Coxe Law Firm
I am a servicemember and recently hired Robert Coxe to navigate the rough waters determining child custody. In December 2012 I first spoke to Mr. Coxe, explaining in a very understandable way the very unique circumstances of my case. Yet every time I contacted the law firm and spoke with someone other than Anna (which was usually a hateful woman called Tuesday ) total ignorance and disregard of my case was immediately evident. Additionally, multiple persons at this firm have been notified of my upcoming deployment and my requests to expedite the process if possible. Unfortunately, the ignorance and disregard plaguing this firm render virtually EVERY employee incapable of understanding why scheduling court dates (those requiring MY attendance) during my deployment creates difficulties, as humans have not yet mastered the simultaneous occupation of two separate positions of space-time.Bottom line: My wife had children removed from her custody by social services, yet the continued incompetence of this law firm betrays any confidence that I, an upstanding citizen with his stuff together, may win this custody battle.

Ernest J. Wright, Attorney At Law
Absolutely amazing attorney. He knows the ins and outs of the law and will have your charge dropped or less sened better than any other attorney or public defender out there. I can't believe how great a man my public defender came to be amd went through so much to make sure my faulty charge which with just any attorney would have been found guilty of- he did the research and with his professionalism and attitude got it dropped. Outstanding attorney. A hard working man whom stays humble. Quite rare these days. You can't go wrong with Mr. Ernest J. Wright. Amazing JUST AMAZING ATTORNEY!

The Coxe Law Firm
Unfortunately one star is the lowest this review allows. I needed a lawyer to close on a mortgage I had to take out on my home to pay my federal taxes. This firm blew me off for 3 weeks making up excuses as to why we hadn't closed yet. Finally when it came down to the wire and my tax due date rapidly approaching (and numerous phone calls to them) they finally admitted that they were under audit and unable to close on any loans until it was finished. This caused me to miss my timeline (in which they had over a month to meet) and I was forced to go elsewhere. At the end of the day, they LIED, never returned calls, strung both me and my loan officer along in order to not lose their fee and ended causing me to miss my tax due date . This review doesn't allow me to write the whole story due to space availability. DO NOT USE THIS LAW FIRM. THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT YOU OR YOUR SITUATION, THEY LIE AND ARE UNPROFESSIONAL.

Horrible experience. I would never ever recommend him to be your lawyer. Be careful he will plead you guilty without your consent!

Thomasine E. Moore & Associates, PA
I had to fire her as she would not show up on my court dates. I paid her in full. I am not sure what her problem is. This happened in 2012. I am going to write about this one day soon and let every one know the justice system does not work here. the lawyers are too buddy buddy!

The Houser Law Firm
I wish you could do a review without even 1 star, but I'm just waiting to see just how much of my refund they're going to issue me after being insulted by one of their staff before my REAL review. Customer service is everything & lets just say...we have all been taught that you can't trust politicians or lawyers. So I will just leave it as that until further notice . Be blessed all. Do your research before "retaining" ����

Maready Ann D Law Office
I found Ann to be very quick to respond to messages and her staff was always very friendly and helpful. Ann does not tell you what you want to hear; she does not sugar coat your situation.

Silva, Kiernan Associates, PLLC
Cons: Mr. Silva was sort of harsh about my situation and didn't spend much time on a lot of the issues I brought up. He explained why the issues were not important, but it was a bit harsh. Pros: Mr. Silva told me how he planned to defend me from the start. I wasn't absolutely sure why the things he mentioned were important, but at the trial they turned out to be what was needed. He tolld me he would file a motion to depress and another motion that would help my case (I cant remember the name). He won my motions and then the case had to be dismissed because it wasn't right for the charges. cons: I spened a lot of money.Pros: It was cheaper then having to pay the money the people said I owed to them.

Silva, Kiernan Associates, PLLC
Mr. Silva is our second attorney for the same problem. To start, he did the best with my son's case. At first, I thought he was a little too blunt, but after I realized he told us exactly what to expect. And everything happened just like he said. He said that there was a 1% chance of it working out, and told us how he would have to do legal research and write a motion to fix our problem. He did what he said an he was able to get my son back on track.

The receptionist was nice. The rest of them took my money and I had to hire another attorney to finish what they started. I thought they were with me all the way. Hire someone who isn't looking for the easy way out.
Tips & Advices
When it comes time to choose a lawyer, you should start by searching close to home. If you do have attorneys you are familiar with, ask who they believe would be best for you. After going through personal references - especially from individuals who had similar needs - you should broaden your search through public information resources. You can call your area's attorney referral service or check legal organizations like Martindale-Hubbell. There are other resources available online, such as You can check websites for client reviews and other third-party forms of approval.
If you sign documents and you come across a word you don't recognize, or you need help to navigate important employment or real estate paperwork. Also, during times when personal matters intersect with legal proceedings, you might need to have an advocate to prevent your emotions from getting in the way. If you've been accused of a crime or are in a terrible financial situation, you can find an attorney who will work with what you have available.
When you hire a lawyer, you're agreeing to work with someone over a certain period of time. The more forthcoming the lawyer appears to be with individual needs, the better.
  • You need to ask questions about how the attorney will communicate with you and what responsibilities you hold in the relationship.
  • The attorney should let you know the best channel for quick communication and you need to inform him or her when you want updates.
  • You should also ask questions to get to know the attorney as an individual in order to ensure this is a person you can trust. Ask about their legal philosophy and how he or she views the lawyer/client relationship. Ask as how to keep fees down or what daily disruptions you should expect from a long legal battle.
You need to ask about every possible fee that will come up when working with an attorney. You should request a list of all costs in advance so you won't be surprised by additional expenses like overhead. Also determine exactly when you will start being billed. You want to inspect paperwork carefully. If the attorney charges you for his or her experience, you need to make sure he or she will perform tasks personally and not hand it off to an assistant. Find out if the attorney has a flat fee or charges by the hour. Many civil lawyers work on contingency. Make inquiries about how the lawyer plans to provide service for your money and what you can do if you start to feel unsatisfied with his or her performance.
You can ask how many similar cases they have handled and if they have special skills or training that applies specifically to your needs. Lawyers can't mention clients by name, but you should ask for basic details about identical past cases. You should check their office for the appropriate certifications and diplomas. You can also ask how long he or she has practiced law and request information that demonstrates the practice's success. Look for precise details such as percentage of cases settled out of court.
