DON'T DO IT!!!
On any given day, I would NOT recommend the services of the Stiell Law Firm!!!! As a former client, I can honestly say that this firm will try to STIELL your money!!! The contract that the firm provides to clients is a contradiction in itself. Although the contract states that the firm will provide clients a monthly bill outlining charges, that was not my experience. After paying this firm a substantial amount of money, I was hit with an additional, enormous bill AFTER the case was closed. No monthly statement was provided where a conversation could have been had between the attorney and myself regarding the direction of the case where finances were concerned. If so, I would have been forced to have this attorney withdraw from the case based on ridiculous fees and costs!!! And as a working professional and educator, I know I would have fared better in my situation, both financially and legally, if I'd represented myself!!! I highly advise anyone looking for an attorney in the Tallahassee area to NOT SECURE THE SERVICES OF the STIELL LAW FIRM. KEEP YOUR MONEY!!! You would be better off, as I, either doing the research on your own and representing yourself Pro Se, or contacting Legal Services of the Legal Aid office of the Tallahassee Bar Association to see if either organization will take your case at a reduced fee or low cost.
The practicing partner in the Stiell Law Firm needs to return to law school and take additional cases on the ethic of the law. If you take nothing else from what I've said based on my personal experience with this law firm, I highly recommend you to KEEP YOUR MONEY!!! This firm will try and STIELL your hard-earned money in this stressed economy!!!!
