    Has no business handling a litigated matter and brought in a litigator much too late. I took over one of his litigated trust matters.in which he failed to give client needed advice. Consistently slow to respond to client inquiries. Abysmally slow in filing accounting. Office bookkeeper's schedule slowed the process so much it put the trustee client in jeopardy. Needs to develop social skills with opposing counsel as in -- pick up the phone and call the guy!
