Hello and welcome.
My name is XXXXX XXXXX my goal is to provide you with excellent service today. I am sorry to hear of your daughter's difficult situation. Before I can give you an accurate answer to your question, please provide the following additional information:
The attorney is now charging your daughter more than the $3,000 because of work your daughter did not agree to?
I look forward to assisting you as soon as I have received this information. Thank you.
She is charging no only for the contempt charges that she never notified my daughter about, but other charges--such as $250 for reading a 2 letter from the ex-spouses atty. I have a copy of this, plus all the other charges. My daughter wants to kill herself! This attorney will not return phone calls. This attorney forgot to put things in the divorce papers, yet she told us WE WON!! You got everything you asked for. I have a 9 page letter that I have ready to send to the Grievance Committee, but have not done it yet. We do not have the extra money she is bilking us out of. My daughter does not work because of physical condtions and I am on pension and ss . I am trying to take care of 4 people and I can't do it!
I hope this helps clarify the situation for you. My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate my service when I have answered your questions so I will be compensated for my time assisting you. Thank you!
I also forgot to mention that this atty only showed up for court one or two times throughout this whole mess. She sent her other partner all the other times. We were told that she had other things scheduled. Shouldn't my daughter have been her first priority?
I am totally, 100% satisfied with the answer that got. I am working on the paperwork today and hope to get it out next week. Thanks so much! I will let you know of the outcome. By the way, I called the lawyers office and explained to the secretary that my daughter was on her last straw--so depressed,not eating etc. I asked her to PLEASE have the atty. call her, but no phone call yet. Talk about being disillusioned!
