0 stars. No. No. No. run fast or, be prepared to be ignored, billed exorbitant fees, nickeled and dimed for any little thing, be charged “finance fees” for bills never received, get charged for “processing fees” on a bill PAID IN FULL weeks after the bill was paid (oops we forgot to add the 2.5% credit card fee), wait weeks for a return email (if at all), go to court and have attorney not dispute OBVIOUS lies stated on the stand by opposing counsel and witnesses. I waited three weeks for a referral for an appeal attorney which never came even though I was told time is “VERY CRITICAL” (30 days to file appeal). Several weeks later I was sent a $5,000 retainer fee contract for “disillusion of marriage” which was to be argued along with the filing of Annulment. I provided so much evidence for our case and little (of any) was admitted. Change of venue hearing there wasn’t evidence admitted for domicile even though several letters, bills, and accounts show address. Mr Scholz sited outdated RSMo. in petitioning the court. He was warned about the other counsels antics and did nothing to thwart them. Good ole boys system at its best. I was thrown under the bus, feel the case was not represented fairly or accurately. But! The attorney was paid handsomely every month, on time. I can go on and on…
DO NOT waste your time and hard earned money here. I was referred to an attorney here who probably does good work but he was too busy to take my case. My attorney was a nice enough guy but that doesn't excuse the business as a whole. The shady business practices of this attorney group as a whole is sickening. They will nickel and dime you to absolute death. Overpromise, underperform, and overcharge is the name of the game at Rooney McBride & Smith. I would be ashamed to have my name as the face of the business here. I highly suggest doing business elsewhere.
I didn't retain anyone from here but I was sent here by a friend and referred to Austin. I can tell you, if I need a lawyer I will definitely be calling this firm back! From first contact with Jessica to Austin I couldn't have asked for better. Both were amazing! Austin took the time to actually talk to me, not over me. Addressed each concern with me and talked to me like an actual human not a subject. I felt comfortable, heard, and more confident after my phone consultation than I had with any other lawyer I had contacted (about 16). I will definitely be retaining Austin for anything I need in the future and will recommend him to anyone that may need legal services! You won't be disappointed!
If I could give no stars I would. I was told it would only cost $2,500 for my divorce but it ended up costing me $6,000 and they took over a year to get my divorce finalized.
This team is great! Heather and Solon we very helpful for helping with advice for our business. Highly recommend this firm!
