Paul was timely, direct and professional. His replies were not canned answers. I experienced something with Paul, which unfortunately have not seen in the "Alabama good old boy network." My previous experiences with attorneys on my case was dishearting. For example, my first attorney in this case, which started in 2007 did not send out any interogatories (sp?), but I had to fill out 2 years of my demographics. Then, because the first case was bifurcated, I was given a continuance. A new hearing date was set, but at the last minute, we were informed my ex-attorney's wife had passed away, and requested a continuance. However, her attorney, Bill, then sent me an itemized invoice, because we requested a continuance. Not to be insensitive, but it was HIS wife that passed away, so why was I, as a client held responsible? I was forced to terminate our relationship.
It appears Paul is not affraid to outwardly admonish another attorney. Others (attorneys) in my past expereiences, will not openly criticize another attorney, or suggest a complaint is warranted.
Paul, you have my sincerest graditude. I am a 70% disabled veteran and have fought over the midde east, Africa, Bosnia, and other global hot spots, fighting to do my part in preserving our belovede country., the American way of life, and sustaining true demoracy. However, in stark contrast, fully comprehending the cold facts, that although we have a justice system, in my humble opinion, most of our courts, fail to maintain a consistant, equatiable and fair legal system. For example, there are an endless array of published "self help" books designed to assist you, in making a formal judicial inquiriy,; against a judge' who's legal reasoning skills have manifested into gross impartial ineffectiveness, and or incompetant in their legal reasoning.
Today and , 'more likely then not,' and even more alarming; it seems that judges, who have reached tenure; are prone to misuse their discreationay powers bestowed upon them, free from any judicial misconduct, because now, their law school classmates sit on the appellate court, and have the authority to determine on a case by case basis how much lattitude they are willing to extended to their subordinates; often hidding behind the vail, that the lower court judges, must not be afraid to make decisions, even if the decisions are unfair and unjust to the defendandt. The theory and practice of allowing judges to enter unfair and often unethical judgements, although it may save certain judges embarassment and humiliation, who in our American system; known for checks and balances, can advocate for our citizens, unimpedided by immediation, and ot threats of contempt?
"Judges are the weakest link in our legal system; yet they are the most protected."
I may have a physical astygitism, but I am far from myopic.
Again, Thanks, Paul.
