Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
Hi: Mr Mayer: Thank you for your answer. I hate to sound like a sexist but would also like to talk to a male lawyer. In the past I have not had the best of luck with lady attorneys, I know there are great ones but would like to try something different.
If it helps the opposing attorney is Jon Lydell. Also would I expect to pay an attorney to discuss hiring them? I would like to meet with two or three attorneys to see which one I would want to hire.
I am considering one lady now her name is XXXXX XXXXX she is with the firm of barthalomew and Wasznicki.
I am also looking for the attorney to remove an ad liteum for our niece in Sac, his name isXXXXX with Ellison and Robie, I believe. Looking forward to your advice, let me know what I owe you. Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX
Thank you very much for your candid answer. I was worried about the lack of experience also. Watts is a Native lady and our family is also so I had hoped for some extra help from her in that dept. but the last attorney we had there nickled and dimed us to 10's of thousands of dollars. Her name isXXXXX and I am very unhappy with her. We have to be very careful with the cost and the attorneys in Sac are so expensive.
The other question. I would like to set up a day and time, fly to Sac to interview each of these attorneys to see which one I like the best. Do I expect to pay them for those interviews? Thanks again, you have been very helpful. How do I pay you for your additional time? Doug Marsh
Hi Mr. Mayer: Vistied with Christine's office today. Her sec talked with her and she decided Christine might be a little busy when I needed her and she really didn't want to deal with Jon Lydell. He seems to be very unpopular with other attorneys. Her sec gave me three others to contact. First, Charlotte Keeley, very expensive and very tough, she would chew up Lydell and Spit him out. I talked with Charlettes office and she is very expensive but would agree to meet with me and take the case. Are you acquinted with Charlotte?
(2)Greg Dwyer she said he would be good against Lydell, but haven't talked with him yet.
(3)Next Mike Johnsson.
I had the oppurtunity to visit with Don Latzer this morning and I liked him, he said he can work with Lydell and that Lydell respected him. Don also said he thought maybe jurisdiction should be moved to Idaho. He seemed very likable and someone I could get along with very well, but I think I would be more comfortable with a person who would chew up and spit out Lydell instead of someone Lydell respects. What are your thoughts. Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX
