Attorney John Balent is a predator. He preys on the emotional distress all the while appearing to make you think he'll be your knight in shinning armor through your entire case. He will promise you a flat fee to work your case, give you an extremely simple looking contract that will actually fail to show it's a flat fee. He'll write that fee number down on a note pad in big letters and circle it to reinforce his flat fee claim, but after he's got your money, get ready to be overcharged 2, 3, 4 and 5 times as more of what he quoted you.
From here he will forget everything about your case, very likely make errors and screw up your case. Make incorrect filings, lost important documents and be total unprepared if you wind up in trial.
