    Review for James W. Almand on 12/11/18 in Family Law

    I used Mr. Almand for a divorce. He was fair to both parties and not overly expensive. I am still friends with my ex-wife and possibly because of Mr. Almand's efforts. I would indeed recommend him

    Dean Jenkins took time to explain things thoroughly and responded quickly and accurately when questions arose. At the Court House, an employee leaned over and said, " You're lucky that Dean is your lawyer. He's the best." This respect for Mr. Jenkins was present throughout the whole process. He was always prompt and meticulously prepared. Most importantly, Dean seems to have a genuine concern for helping people.

    Unfortunately for me, an 11 y/o, he was picked by Judge (Bloxom) as my Guardian ad lit. in one of the most contentious custody trials in our area (Dor. Co.) in history and only b/c the two were friendly and played golf, "good ole boys system", at its finest! He had no interest in what I asked for/needed, even after proving to him the well doc. severe abuse/neglect at the hands of my dad (ret. MSP)! He lied under oath, took bribes/kickbacks, wouldn't let me testify and I had to suffer 5 more yrs!

    The worst lawyer I have ever dealt with! Very non aggressive. Does not adequately represent his client's demands. Inflates his billable hours. Does not communicate with his clients. Please if you want a positive settlement do not use James Almand! In domestic cases he will drag the process out to inflate his billable hours, then will not guarantee a positive outcome for his client during the court case. Therefore, you will spend a great deal of money for no service.
