Thank you for your question.

Failure to return client phone calls is the top reason for complaints against California attorneys, according to
http://www.americanbar.org/content/newsletter/publications/gp_solo_magazine_home/gp_solo_magazine_index/disciplinaryactions.html

That article also lists the other top reasons that attorneys are disciplined.

Please let me know if this does not answer your question prior to rating my answer.

I hope this information is helpful.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
