1. FIRST HE TELLS YOU ALL THE WAYS HE CAN WIN YOUR CASE.
2. AFTER RECEIVING YOUR MONEY HE BEGINS TO FIND ALL THE WAYS HE CAN'T WIN YOUR CASE.
3. THEY DON'T PRESENT YOU WITH THE EVIDENCE THAT IS SUPPOSELY AGAINST YOU.
4. THEY CURSE OUT YOUR FAMILY MEMBERS.
5. THEY SHOW UP TO COURT DRESSED IN JEANS AND A SHIRT.
6. THEY NEVER KEEP YOU UPDATED ON YOUR CASE.
7. THEY FIGHT HARDER TO KEEP A CHILD KILLER OUT OF JAIL THAN TRYING TO HELP SOMEONE WHO HAS A CONTROLLING SUBSTANCE ISSUE.
I WAS DUPED OUT OF 5,OO0 BY A SUPPOSELY GOOD LAWYER. THE ONLY GOOD THING ABOUT THIS LAWYER IS THAT HE WAS GOOD AT LYING AND BEING MANIPULATIVE. IF I KNEW WHAT I KNEW NOW, I WOULD HAVE HAD MY BROTHER STICK WITH A PUBLIC DEFENDER, THEY HAVE PROVEN TO BE WAY BETTER THAN THESE SUPPOSE TO BE PRIVATE LAWYERS

Divorce lawyers are about the same -- or maybe worse? Mine told me they could get my divorce in 60 days and what it would cost me. Been almost 2 years and I got my divorce just a few days shy of a year -- not 60 days at all. And it wasn't like my ex and I were fighting over property, either. Still don't have the property mess straightened out because my lawyer takes 2 months just to get around to having a letter typed up. I fired my lawyer once and they talked me back in, telling me what they could do for me. Should've been telling me what all they were gonna do TO me!

Believe me, I'll never ever get married again because I don't even want to take the chance. I hired a lawyer to dissolve my marriage, and I didn't want to get into a lifetime relationship with my lawyer, but it seems they're gonna keep this thing going until the day I die!

Nothing they told me was true -- everything they said would happen didn't... and everything they told me wasn't going to happen, did. The truth can't come out of my lawyer's mouth. They must've gotten their degree through a correspondence course and had someone else do their work for them. That's the only explanation I can come up with for that kind of incompetence.

It was best said by Joseph Bologna in the movie "Blame It On Rio." He said,'Show me 2 people getting a divorce and I'll show you lawyers flying lazy circles."

When you see the attorney is from Metropolis, IL chances are you have the wrong attorney especially if their last name is Abell.

Judging by the original posters story, I would assume they are talking about Kautz and Edwards. I could not believe that they let Bundrick try that case! He was nowhere near experienced enough to handle that case. Edwards is a very good guy, But Kautz is a little prick who is WAY past his prime in court!

Any other profession makes the rules that others have to follow and it would be called conflict of interest.

Really Your opinion is a bit odd and out of touch. I agree Mark is a very good guy! I disagree with your opinion on Will he's a good guy and very sound defense att. Probably the areas best in most opinions. As for Bundrick! How inexperienced can he be? You do know the result was a hung jury? In the bible belt with a charge of that nature, I would say two things about that. One it's a huge win for the defense. Two it leans hard to the fact that the state may very well be prosecuting an innocent man. Good day to you all. In parting, I don't see any of you bashing idiot clients. You know the ones that get caught hands down. In color on five different camera angles then expect that throwing a couple grand retainer at a prominent lawyer. Only to expect some Perry Mason type performance and a get out of jail free card. I would dare most of the badgering of these mens names and reputations are just dumb criminals that walked in with unrealistic expectations. The reality is unlike the average Joe would like you to believe it is extremely rare for charges to be thrown out or dropped, you have very few civil rights intact as they stood 40-50 years ago, and cases are plea bargained more often than not out of defenses fear of the outcome of a trial.

I just set an appt w/coiner to defend me on a DUI; thought he was supposed to be one of the best. Anyone else had a bad experience w/him or is this one persons problem with him?

He maybe a good DUI defender. . but be prepared to pay out the nose. His antics border on extorsion. Whatever he tells you it will cost you. . you might want to double or even triple that.

My ex-boyfriend hired coiner for his DUI a few years back and the charges got dropped to reckless driving! Just remember that you are hiring him to help with the DUI! Because he is a self absorbed a$$hole who could care less about you or anyone else! I wish you the best of luck, especially if it's in McCracken County court! Hollowell will be the judge and although he gets plastered daily, he is very rough on DUI cases!
