Who is the better attorney?
Have a custody case coming up, my ex-husband has hired Heidi Powers and I have a consultation scheduled with Melinda Dalton (based on a friend's recommendation).

If u r going up against heidi powers, u better get the sneakest, most underhanded attorney u can find, cause be assured that heidi will come off with the most outrageous lies, and determental things that can be imagined to win her case. She will stop at nothing, whether its the truth or a thousand lies to win. She has no scruples, her only goal is to win. Good luck to u.

Just from reading the few documents that Heidi has prepared, she doesn't seem to be that "together". There were a lot of obvious mistakes. I am not concerned with lies because those can be disproven.
Well

Well Heidi and Melinda are actually good friends I've heard. I wonder what it's like to battle it out in the same courtroom..... Is Melinda's brother any good?

Well I didn't actually mean that. I was talking about typos, grammatical errors, dates on previous proceedings. It was really quite ridiculous.

Well I never seen it and I WOULD HAVE LOVED TO. I can't stand Melinda but if I was in the wrong and needed a lawyer there's nobody I would rather have. She is sure to split Hell wide open.

I had Heidi as my attorney (for a while). In my opinion, she was not aggressive enough, so as long as you find someone that is pretty aggressive then you should be okay... From much experince I would recommend hiring someone from out of town. All of the lawyers around here are buddy buddy. Heidi and Melinda are friends--I know this because she consulted melinda regarding my case. I have had ongoing custody issues and if I had it all to do over I would hire someone from out of town...

I have since met with other lawyers. If you need me to recommend names let me know.

You stated that Melinda Dalton is money hungry. I'm thinking about hiring her as my lawyer. Are her rates much higher than other lawyers in the area? Also, did she win the custody case for you? Any replies are appreciated.
