Too bad her daughter had to carry the ball after she left. She got stuck with many cases that her mother never finished. Very sad for the daughter who is ethical and very trustworthy. Now she moved to be away from that influence. Joan disowned her family. Pathetic!

Absolutely not, she was the best lawyer I have ever had the pleasure of and very caring regardless of your experiences. I have actually met her and dealt with her. If you are her client you will feel very secure in her abilities however if you are an opponent, you are going down. This woman knows her shit.
I'm sure she has difficult decisions to make and not everyone will agree. But I can say this is a great lady.
Where do people come up with this BS", Joan Teuchert is a very intelligent and capable person. Over 14 years as a City Marshal in the city of
Utica I had the opportunity to to have 1st hand knowledge of attorney skills of your local lawyers. Joan Teuchert was a very good lawyer and was not afraid to buck the good old boy net work!
I was also at the other end of her venom, she represented my exwife and left no stone unturn. Mark Wolber did the best he could but Joan was the type of attorney who would go all out for her client. It has been over two decades but I for one can put my name to it and tell you that Joan Teuchert is a person of honor and integrity which is missing from many in the legal profession in Oneida County!

What decisions? What part of "zealously represent" does she not understand?

There is a reason people either love her or hate her. I've met Joan. Her daughter Kristen handled my messy divorce many years ago when she was first starting out. Seemed very caring about my situation and yet tough. Like her Mother. Well she made a mistake, and rather than admit it or try to fix it she suddenly was unavailable to return my calls after 9 months and close to $15k. When you hire a pitbull for an attorney just remember as hard as they may fight FOR you they can turn in a second and fight AGAINST you. And don't get me wrong, you want someone who is tough. But my problem was I also wanted someone with professionalism and ethics- something neither Joan or Kristen had.

You have no idea wtf you're talking about. Talk to ANYONE working in and around the court system: she's a joke. She works part time (if that), runs her court like its a royal chambers where she's the queen, bans lawyers who appeal her inept rulings and get her overturned, and has had numerous ethical complaints lodged against her. One is pending before the state commission on judicial misconduct, and while it was (and is) still pending, ANOTHER complaint was recently lodged. She's being investigated for the practice of arbitrarilly banning attorneys she doesn't like from appearing in her court. And she was totally inept as a lawyer while she was in private practice. She robbed her clients blind, was never prepared, and when her cases came up for trial, she folded like a cheap suit.
She is the most reviled "Judge" in the entire district, universally despised by the bar because of her corruption, laziness, and ineptitude. She's a mean spirited rotten human being, one whose time as judge is rapidly approaching an unceremonious end.

Shes a HORRIBLE JUDGE!!!!!! UNFAIR, Doesn't let justice prevail, Doesn't go based on FACTS, Wont let most "evidence" be seen or Submitted. Go in there exhaggerating and making up stories, Also be the petitioner and you will WIN.

She was my lawyer 14 years ago when I was trying to see my daughter and I fired her and went with a new lawyer who got me what I wanted. She didn't do nothing but take my money!

I Agree. Skane is Off the the wall! If she doesnt luike the lawyer you are going down! She wont even look back at her own orders. We should also complain to the bar association about her. She is a whack.

Is that true? Thought she was just retiring. She is not trustworthy. Her law office did NOT hold information in confidence. She would act concerned and helpful, then take your money! She was all about the money, do not let her fool you. There may have been actual cases she did her job on, however there are many others who did not get what they paid for. I would NEVER TRUST HER, OR HER STAFF. Unprofessionals all around her, and she one of the worst. We saw through her...and went to a different law office(they all seem to be out for the money) and worked things out. Be smart and work with your spouse, do not let the lawyers take your money and make decisions for you. You can save THOUSANDS, if you work things out. Lawyers like to make a mountain out of nothing and take forever to get things settled (they get paid by the hour...).
Skhane was one to take FOREVER...money in her pockets.
Money burns easy in hell Skhane!

"Out for the money"?? That's their BUSINESS!! If you own a restaurant, aren't you trying to make money? Isn't a bank trying to make money? Don't get caught up in the hate-lawyers thing -- they're all 'out for the money' because they are trying to make a living! Get real -- they're not social workers.
