When you need to get a hold of your lawyer you cant I leave a message and don't even get back with you, If I am paying a lawyer I should be able to talk to him or her it has been 2 days now and still haven't received no call back, just gets frustrated when you need to talk to your lawyer you cant.

Slow @ returning calls. Billed for calls they didn't even make. My wife requested records & provided more documentation then what their staff did. Little or no work was done on my case & when I would call to check on the progress, I was told "these things take time". I was charged for every call & email. Bill Abbott "reviewed" my file monthly & I was charged for his time as well. Not sure what he reviewed since they never actually did anything for me. Charged me $3000 & resol  ...More

I was working for a construction company last year and they had me do some work for another contractor. I hurt my back pretty badly and neither company wanted to take responsibility. My wife told me to get a lawyer so I looked at a couple placed. I emailed Ogletree and they got back to me the same day. The didn't charge me any money to get started and took care of everything. I got the workers comp checks I needed and my medical bills paid. That's all I needed so they did a good job.

I am writing this review to express my strongest dissatisfaction against this firm for everyone to see.Is unethical and unprofessional in the matter which there handling my workers compensation case. I have contacted this office numerous times which the secretary was unprofessional on the way she picked up and answer the phone. I left numerous message concerning my case and still no replies back I feel a person that is going through rough time already shouldn't be treated in this way by no atty.

They will get on your case and then drop you for any reason. They still get paid if you win your claim, so they get paid off the work of another attorney's work. I won my claim, but they dropped me 30 days before my CCH. They even sent sent some of my personal notes to the carriers attorney.

Used Ogletree Abbott for my Workers Compensation case after back surgery they said they could no longer be of service to me and did not want to make an appeal because they did not expect me to have subsequent surgeries well I did have another surgery and it was more advanced than the first another words when the money ran out they cut me off and dropped me I would not recommend very unprofessional and not looking into the best interest of their clients.

Do not hire any attorneys from this firm! They lure you in telling you everything they are going to do for you than do absolutely nothing! Anyone that has hired this firm and has been abused by these attorneys please contact! They have scammed over 100s of victims and it is time to take action!

I rate this firm a "0"

Horrible representation and they are not aggressive! I Feel they were just collecting a part of my weekly workers comp check. at one point I really believed they worked for WC and not for me. The attorney Monica is very rude and always was in a bad mood and made me feel like I was always bothering her. Terrible service and I will NEVER hire them again.

Do NOT use this group of attorneys! At first they seem like they will fight for you out of compassion. All lies. I came to them in my time of need and Abbott and his monkey just milked me for $6000 helping me get NOTHING accomplished. I was fighting for compensibility on my shoulder and needed a surgery, Joseph Bedoy went on a vacation and quit communicating but kept charging me for 3 months until he told me I was chasing waterfalls thinking I needed a surgery. I got surgery approved without him
