HORRIBLE HORRIBLE law firm. DO NOT USE THEM.
I paid the $1000 retainer fee, left the office, and didn’t hear back for weeks. I tried to call several times and NONE OF MY CALLS WERE RETURNED. Than I receive in the mail a large stack of court documents that I ALREADY HAD from a previous case. WTF? When I received an additional bill for $100, I laughed and threw it away because I could not believe the nerve of this small town rip-off law firm.
Almost two years go by and I receive the $100 bill again? They call me about it twice; I return their call to discuss. The receptionist told me that someone would return my call about it. Of course they NEVER returned my call. Instead, they send the bill to a collection agency.
This law firm is a JOKE. I AM SO THANKFUL that my case didn’t make it to court so they could screw me up even further.
In hindsight, the messy office, unprofessional receptionist/paralegal, and overall lazy demeanor of the entire office, should have been a warning to me.
Please learn from my mistake and DO NOT USE THIS LAW FIRM.

oh my god look this happen to me to I turned them into the bar association in frankfort.We were going to terminate my xhusband rights my mother n law said how much will it cost total for everything he said 700 if it don't get messy. well my x signed over his rights willingly. Well almost a year later I go to get the paper work from them and they said nothing had been done because I needed to pay them 1500 dollers and she opened the file in front of me and there the declaration was signed by the judge I got it and called the court house and asked them what I needed to do to finish the adoption they said it was already finished. There paralegal said they had taped me saying I would pay I did not I said I would see what happens at tax time. They will screw you in a new york heart beat. They also said they would call my x and tell him he still had rights. my x who beat me and left the kids without food and was in trouble for robbery and drugs. Sick people

Im not suprised to see so many complaints about him. I made the mistake of hiring him and it cost me alot. He hurt my case more than he helped, actually he didnt help at all. He is quiet in court, he never spoke up for me at all. I was like WTF?? I payed him almost 3000$ for absolutely nothing...I have no idea how he still has a job. People need to know how horrible and lazy he is. His sister that works in the office is RUDE!! So is most of his staff. His fee's are way over-priced, he charged me for staples..I swear. I have an itemized bill that states that I was being charged for staples, copies, and even phone call's that I never made. He sucks as an attorney, he cares more about his boyfriend trouble than anything. Do NOT go to him!!!

Yes the dollar figure is right it is not your eye sight. They such he should be closed down. I wonder who to report him to. His so called paralegal Michelle is his half sister. She is not a real paralegal she has had no schooling but passes herself off as one. I think we should ban together somehow and report his ass. Maybe we could get some of our money back! He should have mal practice insurance.
I turned mine into the bar association in frankfort they should still have my compliant back in 2007. I can't get any money back because I refused to give him anymore but I let them know what happened needless to say I never never got another bill alot of nasty looks and my husband got on the phone with them and fired her and him. they need to be stop I have an adoption at the court house I can't get into without going to another lawyer to open it. Michelle didn't realize that I could read and seen that the termantion paper had already been filed after she had told me it hadn't. I said thats been signed she said oh I guess it has but the adoption isn't final according to the court house it has. But I have no paper work except the one I gave to the court house to stop child support payments on my x. There not right. I had 3 or 4 phone calls never went to court and was in the office 2 and that was 700 dollers. oh well look into who you get.13000 dollers is mad crazy for a divorce for real. Listen not alot of people liked marty east because he was a mean ass county attorney. But he is a bad ass attorney he want let you down and he don't try to kill you on prices.

I was furious!! To this day i have not, and will not pay it because his services were so horrible!! One day-He did not even show up to court and I had to call his secretary and she said oh its not a big deal he isnt there. I said well the judge who is sitting here thinks so!!! WTF!!!

Please atleast you got to see daniel james only once for 5 mintues. I wondered if he was a real lawyer and I want my paper work I have a sealed adoption that I can't get opened and my husband is the one who adopted my kid. come on. can't get it from him till I pay 1500 dollers. Probably more now. erk this is insane I have turned it in I didn't even no he had moved from the little house by the bread store to the big yellow house up town and than down town. I had to go to the county attorney I said my lawyers gone with my money and a lady said who and I said daniel and she rolled her eyes and said of course and pointed me to his new office, big jerk

i had a case with him he messed mine up also. Daniel James should be run out of town. The people at the county atty. office know how bad he is, they even want him out of business. He does take some type of tranquliaer to clam his nerves I have even seen him take them in his office. He sat in court in my case and was sooo zoned out that he didnt even talk or respond to anything being said. He will F*ck up your case so stay away from him. He is such a joke. I just wonder when or if the Bar Assoc. is ever going to do anything with him. His step sister Michelle use to work with him in his office she will still all your money and she is a royal B*tch!! I believe they have a scam going on between them. She said she was a paralegal but she has no credentials and she charged for being a paralegal $150.00 an hour and he chard 250.00 hour
