I wish I had read a review about this attorney before hiring them and having what in my pure opinion was dismal representation. So I posted my review on another site, Avvo, Who after a three day review process then posted my review. After about 9 days on their site, my review of this law firm was taken down. So in addition to having a dismal experience with a law firm, I found the review process on Avvo to be not very reliable, and it appears to me that they take the influences from the lawyers who paid to be on their site and will remove negative posts from what appears to be influence from the lawyers in my pure opinion.

So, to restate my complaints here, this is the post that was removed from Avvo shortly after they approved it and posted it on their site.

I only wish I had found Jon Gregory's review before using this firm. Many of my experiences mirrored his. If considering a divorce attorney my only advice would be to shop around and get references. I dare say no more is I've already been told that the Siemen law firm will "pursue every legal option available" if I post my experiences, and what happened to me "was not their fault." Not even an I'm sorry for what happened. Great law firm....not.....in my pure opinion.

After hiring a lawyer that touted themselves as " the biggest family law practice in Forsyth County Georgia" I learned quicky that all that meant was that they generated the highest bills for their services in my pure opinion.

After receiving what in my opinion was inadequate representation, going to court unprepared and having my attorney freely agree to give my ex belongings that we discussed in advance should be sold, I was awarded only a coffee table, tool box and firearm after 20 years of marriage that dissolved due to irreconcievale differences. No abuse, drugs or adultery.

After the disasterous outcome I told my law firm of my grievances and said I would go to every avenue to let others know of the service or lack of service that I received from this firm. I was told by the Chief lawyer that they would persue every option available to sue me if I did, and only said that what happened to me was not their fault.

So I went to Avvo to find only raving reviews with one exception where the law firm in question wound up suing their client. Go figure. So I posted my complaint, which was approved by Avvo after their three day review process, only to one week later get an email,from Avvo that my post was removed. So it seems that if your a big shot lawyer and you have a hard truth posted about your firm that you don't like, Avvo will passify the lawyer in question by removing the bad review.

When reading reviews on sites such as Amazon etc., you are able to see the good, bad or indefferent reviews to make your own decision about using the product or service. But it seems that on the Avvo site if your a paying subscriber to the site you can use your legal muscle to have the review removed.

On a side note, the law firm in question never did sue me like they threatened because my post was stating only the facts of my case and apparently I posted nothing that they could sue me over, yet Avvo removed my post.

So I leave it with the Avvo site as a scam in my opinion and would use other avenues to find honest reviews of lawyers.
