Larry E Adkison 5

I've worked with Larry Adkison in the past and continue to refer him to my network of friends when they need help. He is truly a resource to the immigration community as a whole and his reputation in the legal community is beyond reproach. Their staff is pleasant and attentive to client needs and I've never had any issues with having to stay on top of them to complete work. If anything, they did a great job following up with me regarding important dates and documentation I needed to complete. This firm comes highly recommended.

I would like to share my recent experience with Mr. Adkinson, and firstly let me just start by saying that the previous, positive review which was written is completely and entirely FALSE.
I had the displeasure of working with Mr.Adkinson in regards to my fiancee's and his friend's immigration bond hearing, roughly from the beginning of September to late October of this year. What was supposed to be a simple bond hearing for my fiancee turned into a positive nightmare due to Mr.Adkinson's unprofessional and careless demeanor. Not only did Mr.Adkinson have no clue what was on my fiancee's record, he refused to do any work such as walking over to the Cook County Clerk's Office to retreive the needed records and dispositions. Instead, he would call me, his client which paid for these services, to go and do his job for him. Not only did I go to the Clerk's Office on numerous occassions, mind you having no idea what I was doing, but my fiancee's case got continued due to a lack of missing paperwork, which Mr.Adkinson should have provided himself by simply walking over to the court house. Once the proper documentation was received (due to no effort of his own), I had no point out to him that what was on his record was dismissed, and it wasn't until this moment that he realized my fiancee deserved a bond.
These issues are just minor, and by no means compare to what Mr.Adkinson did next. Since most immigration hearings are done through telephone conferences or video conferences with the Judge, especially if they are in different jurisdictions, Mr.Adkinson was supposed to be present for all telephone/video conferences. However, during a crucial continuance of the hearing where the Judge was trying to call Mr.Adkinson, Mr.Adkinson could not be reached to represent my fiancee! So my fiancee was simply standing there with no legal representation at all. The case got continued AGAIN! When we asked our lawyer, Mr. Adkinson, how could he POSSIBLY miss my fiancee's court date after we paid him and trusted him, he stated that the Judge simply dialed the wrong number! Do you really think that after years of being a Judge, the Judge would dial a wrong number or not try to consistently call after the case had been continued quite a few times? His excuses were absurd, and he reminded me of a small child who did something wrong, and instead of admitting his mistake, he ran away from the problem, dodged my phone calls, and made up excuses! How PATHETIC and CHILDISH is that for a man who claims to have so many years of experience?
If you think things could not possibly get worse, let me inform you, they sure do! Due to the fact that Mr.Adkinson completely BLEW OFF the scheduled court date with my fiancee and the immigration Judge, the Judge was so appalled that she required him to show up in person during the next continuance. However, Adkinson told us that he discussed things with the Judge, and the Judge told him that she had changed her mind, that showing up in court was not neccessary. It was at this point that our lawyer, Mr.Adkinson, started complaining that he had not been paid enough. So we paid him another $1500 thinknig that perhaps this would motivate to do his job FOR ONCE. When it came to my fiancee's next continuance, it turns out that he lied to us, and he did indeed have to show up in person! Once again, my fiancee was left standing there in front of the judge with no legal representation. The Judge was once again appalled that my fiancee's lawyer was not present, and had no choice but to continue the case again. Clearly there is a pattern here, and my fiancees continuances and long stay in custody are solely due to Mr.Adkinson's unprofessional, childish, unreliable demeanor. He is honestly the WORST lawyer I have ever had the displeasure of working with. He is both a liar and a theif, and any client who is even THINKING about hiring this man for any immigration matter should GREATLY reconsider.
I do hope you read this and take my advice, and hopefully this review will help others and stop unprofessional lawyers like Mr.Adkinson from stealing from his clients and failing to provide sufficient representation and services which he promised.

Larry and his wife are great couples, working together in helping immigrants succeed in their adjustment of status case. His fee is affordable. They are honest and trustworthy. Anybody who does business with them will never regret. If you are not down to heart, sincere, honest and be open, you cannot do business with them. I am one of his clients, and l can say the way he handles my case has been so impressive.I am now at the final stage of my case all of which l owed to him. Attorney Adkison, my wife and I send our regards to you, your wonderful wife and the rest of your family. More grease to your elbow. I recommend them to anybody who wants to adjust his or her status.
