Bart Resnicoff offered a free consultation regarding my divorce and child custody case where he told me that his many years in family law, especially representing fathers, made him an excellent legal advocate for me. He lured me in and I took his bait. I told him that I cannot afford his rate ($500 at that time). He said he would lower and keep his hourly rate at $350 per hour and would only charge me a $5000 retainer. He burned through that 5000 dollars in just two weeks.
His statement showed many charges so it was hard to single out an odd off-hour charge. It later became clear that he was delegating his work to underlings. That explained how I was being charged for legal expenses at a time that he was unavailable due to getting medical treatment.
When I asked him for advice, based on his years of experience settling legal family matters out of court, on how to persuade my wife and her attorney on easing up on some of the time restrictions I have with my kids, Bart told me that I should hire a private investigator. With the help of Bart's office, I was printing out all correspondences I had with my then-wife, and collecting what the private investigator was giving us. I told Bart that I would go through the materials on my own because I couldn't afford his firm to do it.
I pointed out a number of inconsistencies between my wife's words and actions. Bart said he knew what to do with it. She was horrified and angered. Matters escalated when she responded by hiring another private investigator. Debts accrued. I barely saw my kids anymore.
Finally...Bart advises me it is time to cool things down and negotiate. I was back to where I started - but just poorer and estranged from my kids. Now, Mr. Resnicoff is gone. He has left a heap of financial damage, debt, and very limited visitations (less than in the beginning) with my kids. The way Bart advised me to escalate matters with a private investigator has now, that the hearings are over, there is complete and utter distrust with the co-parent of my kids. I regret ever walking into Bart Resnicoff's office for that initial consultation.
