So after I viewed the thread regarding having an attorney ready just in case... i sent out a few e-mails to local law firms inquiring about their experience in self defense cases, said I had my CCW and wanted to be prepared etc. It was a very polite and respectful e-mail and I sent it to about ten different firms.

The first response I got was was an e-mail from an Aaron Wolf, an attorney that accidently sent me the e-mail he had intended to send to the law firms owner.

He said "Hey Steve, look at this wacko's inquiry." Obviously trying to forward my e-mail to him. I sent him an e-mail back saying "atleast this wacko knows how to use his e-mail" and then sent one to the owner commenting on how unprofessional and shocking his attorney calling a potential client a wacko was.

Funny to me that a criminal defense attorney would call someone that hadnt comitted a crime yet and was just trying to be prepared a "wacko" seeing as they probably deal with real "wackos" on a daily basis. Just wanted to share in case anyone wanted to know who NOT to call in WA.

All the other e-mails i recieved back were very respectful, noting their experience, education, success rates etc . Too bad we cant get this moron in here to realize that people who protect themselves and their families arent wackos.

Actually I'm looking at it from a professional standard point of view and unless I'm mistaken the lawyers have some sort of a code of ethics that they need to stick to which this might have violated.

Just got a response back from the head attorney-

Dear Mr. Thompson,

I am very distressed over the legitimate concerns you express in your email and apologize for the lack of respect shown you by Mr. Wolff. It is obviously not appropriate to describe anyone inquiring about our firm’s services in disparaging terms, and I will certainly follow up on your complaint. I would appreciate it if you would forward the email to me at your earliest convenience and will get back in touch with you immediately after I have had a chance to review it and discuss it with Mr. Wolff.



Sincerely,



Steve Hayne




Benjaminm0110- This he's trying to cover his Rear eh?

True , Is he an idiot , well yes lol as are many who go before the bar ... But unless he is actively involved in a case regarding the issue any statement public , priveate ( or even private by his own stupidity made public ) is only his opinion , by being an attorney you dont divorce yourself from your opinions . You agree to practice law .. and imho this firm would no way get any of my money or calls ( the idiot felt confident in the partners opinion to lable the email as "wacko's inquiry" You can bet your bottem dollar this is not the firm you want for any gun issue ... just walk away ... not folks you want to deal with as a firm

I sent one back thanking him for his timely response and forwarded the "wacko" e-mail to him. This is what he sent back.

Dear Mr. Thompson,

The email speaks for itself and there isn't any need for me to discuss it with Mr. Wolff before apologizing on his and our firm's behalf.
It was unacceptable and corrective measures will be taken to ensure it doesn't happen again. In Mr. Wolff's defense, I can only say that he is young and occasionally prone to flippancy too common among young people. I am sure he will be very distressed when he learns of his egregious mistake.
I am also confident he will want to contact you personally to apologize for his poor judgment. If I may be of further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Steve Hayne




Benjaminm0110- Still havent gotten anything from the ***hole. Oh well, just wont be getting any of my business. All you can do i guess.

now in his apology if its made , he is welcome to come on the board and explain just exacly why he phrased the title line as he did , I may have no use for this little pup , but if he would explain his screwup i would respect him for having an opinion anyway lol

Even if the senior partners could care less about what the guy wrote, I expect that issues concerning his ability to handle discovory and the like have come to mind over this. Suppose he were to accidentally send out private communications from an actual client like that.
