What is it you need the lawyer for? Different lawyers specialize in different parts of family court...

thats why i think it may be a good idea for them to talk to a lawyer that has been in the system as a family court judge such as Mark.. and knows many of these attorny's himself...i would be willing to bet he knows who is good at their job and would give them appropiate advice

Mark Snider does NOT go into Court at all.....his bipolar illness prevents him from performing in Court. Besides that, he's always on vacation or at his wife's residence in North Carolina and will only return your phone call from his cell phone. You should contact Adams and Haggard - they are by the post office. Dave Haggard is an excellent family court attorney. Mark Snider's firm will probably no longer exist after another 2-3 years.

now now now...looks like u dont like Mark...i do..anyway all im saying is he can tell her who the best would be for her...fyi he was a family court judge back in the day...im sure he knows which family court lawyers are good...out of the many that have appeared in front of him...news to me about him being bi polar...drs. are allowed to be bi-polar and practice medicine...in other words its treatable with medicine...that was derogatory...i havent talked to Mark in a couple years because im kinda retired from real estate so i cant tell if he's on vacation all the time...doesnt seem possible though unless he thinking of retiring soon...that could ruin your business...sounds to me like you just dont like him...Dave Haggard btw doesnt *specialize* in family court proceedings...he is general practice...just saying....

FYI, "yep" - doctors may still practice medicine if they are bi-polar, but how many of them actually tried to kill their wife by driving their car into a tree head-on??? He doesn't even visit his parents during any holiday, including Christmas. His wife (who's from France) makes him take her on vacation out of the country during every single holiday because she doesn't like his family. Dave Haggard is an excellent Family Court attorney - he actually fights for his clients, which isn't something that Mark does. Mark doesn't like confrontation at all. It's not that I don't like Mark, I just don't think he should be or wants to be practicing law any more. Try calling there and asking to speak with him - you'll get transferred to his voicemail and he'll call you back from his cell phone cuz he's not at the office.

Dave Haggard & Tom Adams are AWESOME lawyers! They will fight for everything you deserve!! It doesnt matter what's true about Mark Snider. No one at his firm practices family law anymore, so you would be referred somewhere else anyway. Haggard & Adams are great! You get every penny's worth from them! They fight tooth & nail for their client! They are extremely competent and reliable!! Cant hurt to have a consultation with them.
wow

I've seen them lose cases well before they ever hit the coutroom.They may fight but I hear they don't win much.

btw hun how do you know so much about Mark's personal life...you arent stalking him are you??? for anyone to know this much they would have to be related in some way, a friend(using term loosely) or listening to gossip...ill bet on the gossip...you sound just like another know it all...as far as Mark practicing law...hun he has only been doing real estate transactions now for years...he has done all my transactions over the last 28 years...not knowing that makes me think you really dont know what youre talking about at all! and i dont think anyone was talking about him going to court...just a referral...there are lawyers in canton that do nothing but family court...go there...plus there is plenty of info on the web about lawyers...i think ill take you up on that and call Judy at the office and see whats going on tomorrow...

No lawyer is affordable. You will probably need a few thousand $ to start with. I met with a few when I was looking around and its not cheap.

I would just as soon go into family court without a lawyer, it's always nice when you can say things the way you mean them and not have a lawyer do it for you. If you are not a person to stand up and speak for yourself then a lawyer is the way to go. I would recommend Dianne Exoo from Canton or Henry Leader from Gouverneur especially if there are children involved.
