Vultures. That's the word. Funny how this site only has Expertise and Professionalism to give stars to here.OK, here goes:"Expertise" at being HEARTLESS = Five Stars Expertise at representing a client to actually HELP the client as if the client were your mother or father = ONE STAR"Professionalism" My question is "This attorney doesn't know what the word means, do they? "Professionalism" should mean: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. It should mean, "If you have a client, don't ask that client to "spiff" you or "comp" you something their "Don't double bill your client." It should mean "If you say you are going to do something, DO IT, don't lie to your client. And lastly, "Professionalism: DOESN'T MEAN "If you know your client is disabled, in any capacity, TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THEM!VULTURES DON'T CARE. NEITHER DOES THE DEVIL.

Anthony Ranken & Associates
Mr Ranken helped me with a personal injury case when a woman hit me with her car while I was riding my bike and broke my femur. he not only got me a great settlement but dealt with the huge hospital bill that my health insurance refused to pay for. he got the hospital to forgive a big part of it. I was a lawyer for years and I can tell you he is the real deal...a lawyer other lawyers go to for help.

Ueoka, Ladd M, JD
Paul Ueoka constructed a very poor trust for my mother. After her passing we had legal problems with the trust, and Paul refused to work with our family. I have never experienced someone as rude and unprofessional. He is extremely heartless!

Malone, Mary, JD
After having many bad experiences with lawyers during a very difficult time dealing with custody, I was so happy to find Mary Malone. She listened to me, then gave me honest, helpful, respectful advice. She had my best interest at heart, and helped me in every way possible. I wish I didn't need a lawyer, and hated having to go this route, but feel very blessed to have a competent, caring individual who did the best she could for me and my daughter. She was referred to me by a friend, and I would refer her to anyone I knew in the same situation I found myself in.
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.
