Koelling & Crawford
I retained this lawyer some years ago and recently needed to update my estate. The office seems to have vaporized. Numerous calls to the office result in no answer, only voicemail. I've left messages with no return calls. The office had two lawyers and a secretary. If they were still in business, a receptionist/secretary surely should have answered. I've given him multiple opportunities but have now found another lawyer. If the office is indeed closed, the professional thing to have done was say so in the voicemail rather than keep clients hanging.

Allen S. Russell Jr. Attorney at Law
Allen Russell represented me during my divorce. I could not have asked for a better attorney. He prevented my wife from leaving the state with my child and got me the coparenting time I deserve. If he is available, HIRE HIM! He was well prepared and well organized.

Owens, Lara M
My experience mirrored the other previous review titled "Horrible Communications" on AVVO, except I've had her since 2010. We are now 7 YEARS LATER in a simple open and easily closed case if attorney Lara Owens would have done the things she was hired to do and what the Bar Association expects of attorneys, especially easy compared to the vast majority of cases. Incident 2008, amount was determined in 2009. Owens was hired 2010 and I still have no long term settlement in a case that the amount was pre-determined since before I hired her. Through the past 7 years, I've heard every excuse in the book as to why there are months of gaps in communication, not returning any calls etc. and this latest gap is almost year an a half although I have contacted weekly and sometimes daily. Only times she's ever actually done something was either when she saw $dollar signs, or when I threatened to take her to the Bar Association. Unfortunately bc I cannot reach her, or her assistant at main #, discipline has become necessary and only option at this point. I did not want to go to the KS Bar Association, but other attorneys cannot help me until the Bar Association disciplines and they highly revommended I do that bc this is inexcusable behavior. To go months without returning calls, messages, emails was very common. Now we are nearing a year and half with no such communication. Yes, Lara, I know when you read this, you'll know who this is. I regret not actually doing something sooner. I'm posting this because I hope no one else has to go through what I've had to go through and the stress you have caused me, amongst a list of other negative things. PLEASE BE CAREFUL IN CHOOSING YOUR ATTORNEY AND THIS OPINION EXPRESSED IS JUST THAT, MY OPINION, AND AHOULD IN NO WAY SHAPE YOUR DECISION, HOWEVER I AM SHARING THE EXPERIENCE I HAD WITH OWENS LAW FIRM, AND I HAVE CONCRETE EVIDENCE TO BACK UP THE ABOVE. These are my opinions about my experience.

Allen S. Russell Jr. Attorney at Law
Quick to settle, basically advises you accept whatever the other party offers. Doesn't show much effort and difficult to contact. When he does respond, he acts like it's a favor. Costs were reasonable, but you certainly don't get what you pay for.

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.
