This law firm cannot even put the correct address on a summons! If the correct defendant can be located by an ordinary individual, you wonder why a paralegal cannot do it in an 8 hour day. I would NEVER recommend this firm! If you cannot serve the right people, how can you handle a legal case accurately? Apparently, the paralegal does not know the difference between Wayne and Duplin counties, and was very, very rude about HER mistake!! Not ever!

They were the law firm for the buyers of my home. They received the payoff for my house but they needed to a new payoff due to needing to extend the closing date. I had to call and tell them that the payoff they received should be fine to use considering the payoff stated the daily amount charge after the closing date and they can do simple math to figure it out and they agreed. Why should I have to tell them that!!! Then they were to overnight the proceeds. Of course that didn?t happen!! They put the proceeds in the regular mail!!! What sense does that make to put a check for so much money in the regular mail!!! They got some real geniuses working there!! I ABSOLUTELY DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS LAW FIRM!!!!

I was in the Marine Corp ( 17 yrs. old) Jacksonville NC 1974-1977 I just found out there is 3 speeding tickets now. (63) ??) I called vs. me dealing with. After my integration it became a issue with them because I don't know how fast I was over in 1977.(??)Really? It went down from there almost felt like a criminal.I guess in a weird way if I was driving there and was caught I would.Luckily I live in Chicago.Pass on a lawyer I said and feels like a lot of confirmations I will just bow out and call another lawyer. OK thanks for calling. (??) A para legal or Law Student could handle this lay down deal.I have to take care of .

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
