I've just contracted with Mr. Pembleton to represent me in my handling the completion of my divorce proeedings. My initial Consultation is what I'm reviewing today, but will continue throughout the process.
So far I am feeling confident that I've made an excellent selection out of the many choices available in Bartlesville. Mr. Pembleton was a good listener and displayed 100% professionalism without making me feel uncomfortable. He expressed that complete honesty of information be provided to him.... and also promised the same in return.
I asked what his prior experience was and he was detailed and honest.
I was a little taken back after finding out the cost of the initial retainer since I had spoken to and quoted a lower retainer from another local Attorney. I do, however, feel that his hourly fee is fair.
So to wrap this up for now......I did have other options moving forward where I could have specifically selected a more seasoned 'Divorce' Attorney, but Mr. Pembleton has many years of experience in the courtroom as a Assistant District/Prosecuting Attorney, thus, very competent in the courtroom. This also confirms him as an excellent communicator. His other vast experience can be beneficial in divorce proceedings, specifically relating to taxes and property. These reasons say volumes to me.
Finally in regards to my hesitation regarding the initial retainer....I finally signed the contract, taking all into consideration and with confidence that those funds would be utilized by him doing his best on my behalf.
