My brother just got served with divorce papers. His wife's attorney is H. Craig Black of Greenville, TX. Does anyone know anything about him that might help us? Any recommendations on local attorneys. My brother lives with us in another state and we have to find a lawyer for him soon. Thanks for your help.

Do not get Russell Brooks--he acted as if he was
in a coma during my son's entire divorce case.
Very slow. Wouldn't take advantage of the "wife's"
failure to show up two times in court. Wouldn't
use her 50 doctor visits and 92 Rx's against her.
He didn't think it would matter much. The only thing this attorney cared about was getting paid
on time. You should PLEAD with Holly Gotcher to take your case. She works hard for her $$$, and
usually gets results. She is the VERY BEST.

We also had a bad experience with Russell Brooks. He had a bad attitude and was lazy. My ex-spouse used a lawyer from Dallas.

Craig Black is a tough lawyer. My boyfriend used him in his divorce and he did not have to pay child support for a year while waiting to settle their divorce. His ex wife used Smith Gilley and he sided with Black on all items he requested. She had to pay all the bills until divorce was final. Do not use Gilley for divorce.

Russell Brooks is a bad ass. My friend got really drunk and beat up cops and Russell got him off clean.

Craig Black is a tough lawyer, Holly cost more than she is actually worth. May try Katie Ferguson, she hammered a guy I know pretty good in a divorce case.

Well, it has been 6 months and my brother is still no where near being divorced. Why is the system so slow?

Very sorry to hear about your brother's situation.

That wait time is not at all unusual for Hunt County. Don't expect things to follow standard operating procedures here.

The judge may well let the parties wait, wait, wait until they agree to go to mediation with another attorney (cost of about $1600 a day, split between parties).

But....paying $1600 does NOT assure you that you will have a mediating attorney that operates with integrity or is knowledgeable of basic tenets of Texas Family Law.

With a mediation agreement, the judge doesn't have to make any decisions and all he has to do is sign his name on the divorce decree.

Sounds like you've had some experience. Any ideas on an attorney? Any ideas on a mediator? Thanks.

Got to get rid of the judge who pads the pockets of lawyers in Greenville, its election time. There is a racket where they financially support each other. Lady Justice aint so blind in this town

Hey Cardinal, take the tinfoil off your head. You are obviously a troll for Hopson. If you want to learn about unethical behavior and rackets, read Joe Weis' column in Friday's Herald Banner. That ought to scare you more than some imagined conspiracy between the judges and the lawyers.
