    I contacted Mr. Bliven's office regrading a post-divorce case. They asked me to schedule a 20-minute consultation. I paid for it but Mr. Bliven called and told me that he went through the documents but there is no enough time to speak with me about it and I should pay gain for 50-minutes call for him to speak with me. I paid for 50-minutes and again Mr. Bliven called me 30 minutes after the appointment telling me that he has another call scheduled after 15 minutes and refusing to answer a single question about my case. What was interesting is that he asked me to pay for a third time for 50-minutes call for him to answer any of my questions. I have never dealt with such not professional office in my life. They are great in receiving money from you but do not care about providing you with any service in return. Read less
