but if the deadline is oct 31st to file 727 it can not be a good timing to fire anyone do you not agree?
I did call and got 3 names, and when I called them just vm and still no reply yet, I found another guy on avvo and supposely has a great review and I emailed him and no reply.
I wonder if all lawyers are that way?
Procrastination seem to be a common problem among attorneys, but it is not acceptable when it means a client loses out because of the procrastination. This is one of the main reasons for clients' filing malpractice lawsuits.
If the deadline is October 31, that is enough time to hire someone else.
the issue I also have is my dad will be out of country next wed and he has to go
and for me to be able to go to find someone and interview them via free consultation will also take time and once he is back it would be nov 20th. and if then we have a hearing, then that is too late
so if procrastination is common, and after my parents visit to him today and he promised to file online monday and actually did it
my other question is: is it possible he tried to get back to us bc we bothered him and begged him to do it sooner?
I checked the rating online in avvo and lawyer.com and the rating is 1.4 out of 5
I think the hardest part is what if we picked one and it is worse then others....
I never felt this helpless
I did call texas bar association and they gave me 3 person's name
and when I google them and look for ratings not high, 1.4 out of 5 or 5 out of 10
Call back and ask for different names, since the ones they gave you were not good.
