Terrible. Never prepared. Easily worst lawyer I've ever worked with. Cost me a lot of pain and heartache by screwing me over trying to win more visitation w my daughter. Hire ANYone else...you will thank me.

Cindy Buckner is a horrible attorney. Seek somebody else. She will not fight for you and will not return your calls. Staff at the office is rude as well

Kevin J McDonnell, CPA, Attorney and Counselor at Law
I used Kevin's services for setting up a Texas Series LLC. Wow! I wish that I was turned on to this years ago. Kevin's services provided me much more that just setting up some documents and pushing paper around. He helped to service my needs specific to what my business needs were. Not only are my assets better protected, but the efficiencies gained in helping me run the day to day operations of my businesses.

The biggest mistake I ever made was hiring this law firm. I paid this firm over 18K in legal expenses for one court hearing and a telephone conference. Not one deposition was taken and the attorney withdrew from the case one month before the trial date. If you plan on using this firm for any of your legal needs, you've been warned!

Loucks & Drew Attorneys At Law
My experience was worse than gwsprecast. Paid this attorney for nothing but advising me to settle for less than what I already had. I finally refused and trusted the judge who ruled in my favor. Then my attorney (kendall) didn't check the court order to be sure that my papers were drawn up correctly and things that were not court ordered were included in them. Then he refused to file to correct them without making me pay him. The court also ordered that I be reimbursed for $1500 in attorneys fees. Those fees were paid to my attorney (Kendall) and this guy never gave me my money. To begin with i demanded that he remember to ask for my attorney fees at this hearing because it was to be the last one because I was letting the judge rule. From what he showed me, he is lazy, a joke and a thief. The only thing this guy did was to act like he could do something, try to get me to agree to take less child support and he did show up in court to help the other side persuade me.

I rented an office space from her and she refused to follow the law regarding the security deposit once the lease expired and I had moved out. Her excuse to Judge Polk was that she was not aware of the 60 day deadline. A lawyer not knowing the law as it pertains to her landlord business??? Shame, shame. Can you trust her? I can't.

Be careful. Attorney/client information is not kept a secret here with the big mouth secretary he has!

Loucks & Drew Attorneys At Law
Kendall Drew and his wife have both represented me on various issues in the past. They are wonderful attorneys and now friends. Kendall took the time to make sure I understand all of my questions before proceeding with my case. He was stern when he needed to be, to get his point across to me, however, he was gentle when he could see I was upset. I would highly recommend him and his law partner/wife. They are so family oriented!
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.
