Additional Notes

Complaint: Very Poor Representation !! Attorney fees for services not rendered. Mr ****** was hired to represent me and 3 others in a accident case. A Ms ****** showed up to arbitration, 10 mins before start (first/only time seeing her) said she was there because ****** was ill. We won the case by admission of guilt on the other party and was awarded $1000 settlement according to Ms ******. She strongly encouraged us to pay $200 to have case back in court because she was sure we could get more for our pain and suffering. A year went by - made several attempts to call and speak to mr ****** to no avail, he was never available. Was able to finally reach Ms. ****** by phone to inquire about case - She stated there were pending court dates - each time(3)a court date was approaching, and you were able to contact her, she would say court was cancelled because the other parties were on vacation. After paying out of pocket - $200 to go back to court which never happened, we agreed to just settle for the $4000. We received 2 sets of papers to release those funds - not really understanding the language, we signed it any way to get the $1000 each. When speaking to Ms ****** (perhaps 3rd time in 2 years) she said we had to pay a third of the settlement amount to her. Now the checks have come in and NOW MR. ****** is suddenly available to talk , he wants to schedule appt. to pick up checks. We are EACH being charged 1/3 of our $1000 along with Misc expenses - It doesn't seem fair - 1/3 should be taken collectively NOT individually - It was 1 case, not 4 cases - 1 fee not four

Desired Settlement: we should each receive a $700 ck from the $1000 settlement. We were ill advised and represented. The law office took the bulk of the initial check from the insurance company of the other person involved, now they want all of this check and they provided no service. Ms. ****** was never asked to be our attorney Ms ****** never met with us to prep for anything-never requested doctors notes or f/u care but wants to charge me for hospital fees- Im still getting bills from physical therapy

Additional Notes

Complaint: I hired ******** ****** #****, of ****** & Goodman to resolved an injury I suffered at my previous employer (****** Corp.). I feel that Ms. ****** didn't represent me to her full capacity. I shared that the documents sent to me did not have my correct name or address. I called and never received call back. I expressed my concerns to the manager (Mr. ******) and was ignored. When I finally spoke with Ms. ****** about my concerns she was very irate over the phone (unprofessional) and hung up in my face. I do believe that they are withholding my check and want a full investigation. I want consumers to be aware of their practices. My experience was horrible and I do not want her to get full payment for bad services.

Desired Settlement: I was charged $1,100.00 for services and would like to receive $550.00 as the desired outcome. I don't feel that she deserve the full payment because of her actions, documents where not correct (name/address) and withholding my check.
