Fapojuwo Law
He is a great lawyer but horrible with timing! I paid for a case and was left with a warrant and I am not the only client that has had this issue. His receptionist aren't that great either. They aren't great at making you feel comfortable about your case. All they call You about is money but when you call to schedule and appointment he is no where to be found. Very upset with this firm I wish that he would really commit to his clients with respect. In court he is an honorable lawyer but his receptionist are not on their p's and cues I''m sick of being treated like I am not a factor. I paid this lawyer to show on my behalf, he did not show and now I have a warrant. I should have been notified that he was not going to show on my behalf and I wasn't. My time was not considered and my life is on the line. I have no respect for this firm any longer.

Charles T Hall Law Firm
I definitely would not suggest Charles T. Hall. If my review of him will keep someone else from the same experience I had with him, I am glad to have written the review. I only wish I had written it years sooner. I saw his advertisement on television. I wish I had done better research to find an attorney. I expected more from him since he only gets paid if he wins the case. He only presented part of my case & I believe that as a result my case was denied. He refused to carry the case any further with an appeal. At that point, I was left to find another attorney. However, they couldn't pick the case up at the appeal. Therefore, a new case had to be started. But at that point, in my situation, time had run out & there was nothing they could do for me. I was pushing the 5 year limit of being out of work. Now, I have been out of work for 10 years & my conditions are gradually worsening. Between the spinal issues & the Bipolar issues, I doubt I will ever be able to work again. This has left me unable to contribute financially. This has left my husband as the sole provider of our 4 person family. Now, there is no help for me. I recently had a spine surgery & still need 2 more spine surgeries. Most days, I can barely get out of bed due to the pain. The daily pain that I live with has a major impact on my Bipolar condition. I truly feel that my disability case could have been won had Mr Hall presented my case in its entirety rather than just a portion.

John T Orcutt
Kelli was amazing! She was prompt, thorough and provided clear guidance through this process. The entire office staff made me feel like I was apart of the JO Team! They were very friendly, warm and gave great welcomes/greetings/smiles - every time I visited the office. This team made my terrible situation seem not so bad after all. I was well educated on the process, which confirmed, I made the best decision.J.T. Orcutt Staff - YOU ROCK!

Turner E Lee Law Office
Clients Beware! I paid E. Lee Turner $5,000 in four months to represent my son in a criminal matter. Before I hired him He and I spoke about what his approach to the case would be, but after I had hired him, he did absolutely nothing that he was hired to do. Now he will not give the $5,000 back. I see that as legalized stealing. By the way, just to be clear, I am talking about the E. Lee Turner who used to be a police officer!Lee Turner lied to me about a federal law, taking advantage of my layperson status, trying to get me to talk my son into taking a plea deal after he did not put in the work on the case. I felt like he did not value my son’s case and should not have accepted it if he was not going to actually defend him. However, he wanted our money, and that is plain wrong!!!I had to fight for four solid weeks to get him to see my son and then he pops up with a plea deal, arguing with my son (his client) and me, overlooking inconsistencies in the case that he should have challenged through motions. I did find that when he had a high profile case, he knew how to file motions and challenge inconsistencies. The worse part is that he visited my son only three times in four months, filed no motions, had a poor knowledge of the case. He personifies the word evil because he refuses to give me any money back. How did he earn it when going off on his own, not caring or researching and then without my son’s consent, went to the DA to get a plea deal. Turner advised (threatened me) to be careful where I post my accusations saying that he has an excellent reputation in this community and at the courthouse. What exactly does that mean? Should I be looking over my shoulders?Well, Lee Turner, I tried to negotiate with you, I asked you to be fair and at least offer to return some money. Now, I want others to know about you. I do not want another family to be subjected to your kind of defense. You betrayed your own client and profited from what he has not earned.

Fabio Ortiz Law Firm
My interaction with this firm has been poor. I do not recieve phone calls or correspondence when I request them. The attorney gave me poor legal advice and was completely unpreprared for my case. Actually used the phrase " I am just going to wing it." Yes thier fees are low but there is another price you will pay.

Kassor, Eric H.
I was injured at work and did not know the correct course for looking after my interests or costs of treating my injury. Later when I did file a workers compensation claim it was denied. I spoke with 3 different law firms and all turned down the case. I spoke with attorney Eric Kassor and even though he said it would be a tough case, he would take it. His office worked on my case for close to 2 years and reached a settlement that I was very pleased with. Eric Kassor and his staff were very professional throughout the process, returned calls quickly and always kept in contact with me. I would highly recommend his law office to anyone that wants to have an attorney that will stand up and fight for what is right.Armo D.

Anglin Law Firm, PLLC
This is my opinion.I scheduled a consultation.I went to Mr.Anglin's office for the appointment.His assistant told me that it was a phone interview.I asked if he would see me as I was present.She asked (he was in the office) and told me he would not see me in person. I proceeded outside, called the office, and he and I discussed my case.He agreed to take my case. I paid the retainer fee which was to cover three hours of work.I received no updates unless I requested them.In November Christopher Anglin sent me an email indicating that he had received a denial from the party I had issue with but enabled a meeting between myself and said party.The next email was an invoice which included a substantial additional fee.I do not believe that he is being honest about the amount of time he put into my case.I do not think that he spent over three hours on emails,fewer updates and review of any material necessary for the case.To give the cliché "he nickel and dimed me" would be an understatement.
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 yellowpages.com. 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.
