I had a pricey consultation with one question to have answered. A month later and I still have not received an email from Ms. Alf. Very disappointing. Not a good reflection on the Blue Pages.
Response by Rebecca Allf:
I had what I believed to be a positive consultation with Ms. Johnson, for over an hour, after explaining my hourly rate beforehand, on the phone. I was surprised, therefore, to learn, several weeks later from the Christian Blue Pages, that she was so unhappy. We discussed many issues and I believe I adequately answered all of her questions except one, which she asked as she was leaving, and I promised to follow-up with an answer. I explained that this area of the law was in flux, somewhat, due to current court rulings which I wanted to research before giving an answer. I spoke with several attorneys who practiced in that area of law who were unaware of the new precedent and I did legal research on this issue, which took two hours of work, for which I did not charge.
Once I had the answer, I attempted to contact Ms. Johnson several times for over a week, but received no response to emails or calls. She did respond, after I contacted the Blue Pages for assistance, but told me she no longer needed the information. Perhaps it took me longer than she expected to respond, but I did not want to give a half answer to her very important question, which turned out to be more involved, I believe, than either of us realized.
