Hired him to do my divorce. they did not file my financial affidavit, and did not schedule my prep me for mediation until 2 days before the mediation. but when i showed up at his office for the meeting it was closed. called the office line all day and no response after leaving messages with his answering service. I finally got a hold of him by contacting a friend who knew ostrow personally. he did do a mediartion prep with me 1 day before the mediation and 1 day after i planed to leave for the mediation that was out of town in tampa. I personally believe that most of my issues where do to his staff and not gary ostrow him self. but i was hiring him to help me and he employees his staff so it was his responsibility to follow the cases with a little more attention. after it was all after the dust settled i had to hire a new lawyer who had very little time to prepare and charged accordingly. this put me in a bad place financially. paying 2 lawyer for one divorce.
