My name is Wes O’Donnell: Former executive director of the USS Silversides Submarine Museum, Post 9/11 veteran of both the U.S. Army and the U.S. Air Force, 2L law student, and founder of the community sites Warrior Lodge and Best Michigan.
In 2017, I was in need of a Michigan attorney for a number of matters. After performing a search and choosing a local attorney, I was dismayed by the lawyer’s lack of competence in her practice area.
How could the online reviews have been so wrong and misleading? I know everyone’s situation is different, but I expected at least some consensus on the lawyer’s ability.
I went through three more attorneys, each worse than the last, until I finally stumbled upon a smart, compassionate lawyer in Grand Haven, Michigan.
My ordeal led me to a question… Which online reviews do I trust and which ones were marketing?
Certainly, other citizens are experiencing the same pain that I felt when searching for a good attorney.
The result is Lawyerly.
