Collin County - Beware of Attorney Linda Risinger

In French,“Risinger” means “cut-throat.” Actually, I’m kidding, but the serious part is that Linda Risinger [Law Office of Linda Risinger: ]is one of the worst lawyers in Collin County. Where else can you find out that Linda Risinger, a family law” attorney, was sanctioned and put on a “probated sentence” for disciplinary actions in 2004 by the state Bar of Texas? Keep in mind I have no relation to the Collin County Observer except in name only. You won’t find this information in Ed Housewright‘s Dallas Morning News articles. In fact, Risinger’s motions and bizarre behavior — such as following an opposing counsel’s client through traffic on that person’s way home from the courthouse in McKinney — are the equivalent of an emo kid cutting her wrists over feeling depressed because the newest releases at Hot Topic tell her to.

I was reminiscing with a friend about the problems i had with this attorney back when i was going through child custody issues with my baby daddy. And seeing all this just reminded me of how horrible it was. Where to begin. First, she was charging me rates equal to someone that has been deemed a texas super lawyer and she has never once been put in for that. So that was money i lost on. Second, she told me nice stories during our proceedings to make it seem as though she was intimidating the other side. Needless to say all of it was found to be untrue. When all this surfaced, my ex went and filed a complaint at the bar association and then it coame to light that none of the things were true. I was made to believe we had a great solid case. Bottom line, she is full of lies and hype and I'm surprised people dont have enough sense to see the bs she says. Are people that silly? I looked at her website and now she claims to be affordable, well you get what you pay for now. And thats a half way shotty job full of lies and a total fabrication on the law. I know i cant be the only one. But if your smart, you'll either do it yourself (you'll be better off) or actually find a well reviewed lawyer. And if you even more inclined, you'll find that she is the only lawyer that claims to be such a star in the dallas area but has been disciplined not once, but twice. I wonder how long it'll take for her to get in trouble again.

I was just in her office today for a consultation. I can see why she charges so cheap now after researching. She is horrible. Seems like i was getting the same song and dance from her as well. Told her I had a couple of more attorneys I was meeting with cause something about her didnt sit well with me. Now I know what it was. She has a 3.8 avvo rating. I guess only stupid people will retain her cause they can't afford better. I'll be taking my money somewhere else. Thanks for telling me.

Linda Risinger is one of the best attorneys available. She knows what she is doing and will fight for you and make sure that she gets you the best ruling/outcome that is possible by law. She does her job well and lets you know what she needs you to do as the client. She is held by the limitations of the law and can't change the law to suit her clients needs but she does do everything she can to protect the interests of her clients and get the greatest outcome possible. She did for me and my family what many other prominent DFW attorneys deemed impossible. I will be forever grateful.

Yep, even in 2000. I hired her for my divorce. Never returned phone calls, never worked on my case. It sat and sat and sat. I was fortunate to have a roommate who was a paralegal. He helped me write a letter to her threatening to make a complaint to the bar. Funny how she answered that letter very fast. She was just fine giving me my money back if I did not complain to the bar about her.
There was just something wrong with her. She talked about her personal life and her divorce with her ex. Details were shared with me which made me so uncomfortable. I always suspected she was on something, or should have been medicated for some form of mental illness. I just remember walking out of her office and her coworkers were looking at me as if they were saying "are you sure you want to hire her?". I was imbarrassed, but let it go. I felt so fortunate to get half of my 5K back.

NEWS FLASH!! She is not the only sleazy lawyer in McKinney. Linda Risinger pales in comparison to the scumbag "lady" lawyer I had the great misfortune to hire.

Has anyone had any experience with Lynn Switzer? Yes. Very recently. She is corrupt and I believe evil. I've never experienced such blatant lies. She is a highly creative and quick- thinking liar.
Karma will get her one day.
