I hired Mr. Papez to handle 2 situations for me. He did nothing but take my money and had no results to show for it. He swore to me that he was an excellent litigator and thus could take on a divorce as it would be easy with all of his experience. He was wrong. He claimed he filed all the motions and requests I asked him to do, but I later discovered from the courts that he NEVER filed a single thing I requested of him. He was completely unknowledgeable to court room procedures, the timeframes in which things had to be served, filed, etc.., what motions were needed, what oppositions were required, and he would become angry and livid when any questioned what he was doing. He would yell and scream obscenities at me when I questioned his abilities. He managed to get into a screaming match in court which resulted in the Commissioner kicking us out of court. During a failed deposition (due to his negligence), he got into a screaming with match with opposing counsel and it was then that I knew I had to fire him however I had paid him $40,000.00 and I had yet to get any of the promised work seen to completion. He will not provide accounting despite numerous requests, he will not keep you appraised of communication between the other side and himself, and he will be highly unprofessional and rude if you ask him to explain what he is doing, and in my case, he made lewd and inappropriate comments to me which made me highly uncomfortable. His overall professional ethics are highly questionable and his actual work produced will be minimal, and when you ask him about it, he will try to tell you it is either your fault, you do not understand the law, or threaten to drop your case if you question him because he is the ""Lawyer"". In my opinion, you would be better suited to hire a different attorney with a better background and track record.
