I hired Abbott & Abbott to assists with my custody case. I had used him in the past and had thought he would be just as good the 2nd time around. I was wrong!!! He knew I would pay and therefore continued to drag out the case. I paid him $12,000 before we even made it into the courtroom. His staff in incompetent and he is unreachable or worse puts you on with his wife Parri Abbott who is well, I'll be nice! I asked BJ several times to take steps in my case that I knew would bring the other side to the table to start negotiations and bring the case to an end and he continued to put me off and take my money. He was NEVER in court, ALWAYS had a conflict that no one was aware of until the last minute. He is ALWAYS filing Leave of Court at the last minute and tries to avoid appearing in the Courtroom so that he can drag out the case to get more $. He puts on a great show at the consultations, after that it's downhill. He has a very high turnover with his office staff! There are so many other wonderful attorneys that care about you as a client so please avoid Abbott & Abbott and do your homework!

Charged me $3500.00 to defend me in a child support case. 5 months pass with zero results. I am still in the same place I was in when I walked in there minus $3500.00- Nothing happened.

I used BJ over two years ago....he lied to my face and did not keep his word. He had no problem taking my money but he is not a man of his word...,watch out! He did not file papers to the courts as needed and I would never advise anyone to use his services.
