Susan S.



Gretchen Szydlowski was the GAL appointed to represent my two sons in a TRO case recently, filed by my Ex-Husband. She did not investigate HIS background in any way, and only listened to what my sons told her, read e-mails, and heard my X's lies. A DFS report was found to be unsubstantiated against me, AND a police report as well. There was substantial evidence in my case that was never looked into at all. She, in no way, put my kids best interest in mind. She was arrogant, biased, and down right unprofessional. She sent my children to a man who has had a domestic assault charge against him, a restraining order for pulling a gun on myself and my sons, as well as to a home over 1000 miles away without even investigating HIS home. My kids are left alone, while my X husband works, have no supervision, and are subjected to a man who is a raging alcoholic and abuser. I would NEVER have this woman represent a child. God help my poor sons who have been put in the hands of a monster.




I have known Gretchen Szydlowski for 6 years and wanted to use her services for an adoption process. I had looked around at what other lawyers charge and it averaged about $1500. The other party in the adotption process insisted that i use her even though Gretchen said it would be $2000, which was more than others. I was a little concerned about it as $2000 was all i could afford, so i sent her an email asking her if $2000 would cover the whole process. Gretchen replied and said "If there is no abnormal circumstances it would not be any more than the $2000 retainer". So we went ahead with the process. It took a total of 9 months which was because the court date did not work out for Gretchen's schedule. We had to move it out another month farther. No time in this process did Gretchen say we are going over the $2000 total. I never recieved any bill in the whole nine months and was not concerned as we were told it wouldn't exceed the retainer. Then it was finally done, 2 weeks after the signing of the paperwork she sent me another bill for an extra $554! I asked her about not being more than $2000 like she said. There was no "abnormal circumstance" except for her delaying the court date because it didn't work out for her schedule. I kept asking her how it could be more than what she initially emailed me if there was no abnormal circumstances? She said "I am no longer having this discussion, you owe $554" and would not respond to any emails after the final bill. Please be aware i have known her for 6 years and this is how i was treated. I feel cheated as i was told one thing and charged over 25% more than what was discussed and the process took 9 months! Remember the lawyer i was origionally going to go said it would cost no more than $1500. Plus she will no longer even explain the bill to me. Please be aware when you look at Gretchen Szydlowski for any lawyer process.
