I hired Joe Lombardo for a Dui case. He wanted paid in full, up front, which I agreed to, out of desperation. His price was very hefty. I only spoke with him twice in a three month period that I sat in jail awaiting him to do his job. The job I paid him to do. The two times I saw him was only because I called and pestered him into coming to speak with me.He was very unorganized, as well as very lazy once he got my money and I was sitting in jail, he was more than content with taking my money and hoping I'd forget that he was supposed to help me. The end result was for $ 3000.00 I got the exact same result, except for with a more drawn out process and a lot more stress, as I would have with a public Defender.
