My brother passed away 2 years ago. I was sent certificates of Appointment of Administrator one month after they were issued along with a letter that said they will contact us on their use. I was never contacted. I was never told they had to be used within 6 months of their date of issue. Went to use them a couple of days ago to close my brother's bank account and could not because the 6 months had passed. They don't respond to my phone calls.

I hired a lawyer to handle the closing on the sale of my home. I received one phone call from that lawyer. I was told 2 days before the closing that the lawyer I hired had left the firm and did not speak to a lawyer until the closing. I was not kept informed on the timing of the closing and I am now being chased down for payments that should have been handled at the closing. Very unprofessional service, I would not use this firm again.

They were very expensive. My lawyer did well in behind door negotiations with the judge and other lawyer but failed in the courtroom.
