I hired her as my attorney for divorce and child custody. I paid her $2500 of the $3500 that she wanted as a retainer. She blew off 3 out of 4 court dates, didn't respond to opposing counsel's faxes or to mine so the matter could be taken care of. Long story short, all I wanted for my daughter was for her to be safe and not have to spend the night at her father's. I was unfortunate enough to have Judge Blanche Fawell - who cares more about having a clean docket the the safety of children. Judge Fawell is very impatient and Peggy Raddatz made her so angry that I had to borrow money to hire a new attorney or risk harm to my 8 year old daughter. She padded the bill and charged me twice for the same court date - the only one that she went to.
Bad lawyer and bad judge. Beware.
