Click to report rating    8/12/13   4     4     1     2     2   I retained Mr. Moreland. We met personally multiple times and had several phone conversations, yet, he botched my name and my daughter's name to the judge during trial. He filed a modification to a no contact order for me to resume court ordered visitation with my daughter, however, it failed to include holidays. I asked him to correct the oversight, but, her lawyer didn't want to modify it a second time so all I got was another $500 bill and nothing to show for it. When I argued that his attention to detail was incommensurate to the fees he cashed out my retainer and dropped me as his client. I would only recommend Mr. Moreland to somebody if I was suing them.

Click to report rating    1/14/13   5     5     5     5     5   This is the attorney. I would encourage any person using the internet to find an attorney to meet with the attorney to see if the attorney would be a good fit. The disgruntled client who gave posted a poor review of my performance might have made a better use of her time meeting with me to go over why she was upset. I believe the client simply did not understand what was being presented to her, and was in a hurry to get things resolved. I happen to think I am a very good lawyer and take very good care of my clients. You should decide for yourself if an attorney is a good fit and for Pete's Sake, try talking to your lawyer if you are not happy instead of posting a nasty review. I rated myself a "5" across the board as I believe I provide excellent legal services at fair prices. I hope the readers checking me out online will also review my published court cases, pro bono awards and other qualifications before relying on "lawyerratinz.com" for such an important decision.

     4/5/11   1     1     1     1     1   Communication is poor & unproffesional, when emailing she used words like "cool", I asked for 3 Scenarios to settle my divorce with no results, she had all our finacial numbers miscalculated. After a death threat from my ex, she said she filed a no contact order & did not per police dept.She assured me in writing my husband signed off on our settlement, which proved untrue. In addition, the orginal agreement was changed & she refused to explain these changes simply responding "I don't know, Please ask Karen to go over it with you if you still have questions...bottom line is Kevin is going to give you the money that you need to get this done". This after I released a contingency on a home that I am purchasing. I am very concerned that a person who claims to be an advocate for domestic violence victims was quick to tell me I would be a "fool" not to settle for the first offer, less than 1/2 the estate's value. She was not a person that had my back or my best interest. RID: 43696
