Read Complaint Details
Complaint: Last summer we got help from BBB to find Gianelli & Associates to get some legal consult. The first consult was helpful and there is no issue. Then we were recommended for the another consult for estate planning update with different lawyer. We paid everything for the second service. I even paid for the email/phone call charged by the lawyer to confirm that the payment amount is correct, and a few words confirming the document we received is all what we need, which should be included in the service, but we paid, too. However, we still receive invoice for a balance we don't know what it is for. We are not going to call the lawyer anymore. Each call will generate additional fee. Even 30 seconds, the lawyer would bill us based on our experience of dealing with her. Please help to look into it and asked them to stop billing us anymore, because we were advised that we paid in full when I did over the phone and paid with the credit card.
Desired Settlement: Stop billing us. Settle with 0 balance as we were told by the legal service when I made the payment.
