He has almost single handedly managed to prevent my family, as victims to the murder of our father and husband, to settle his estate. He has help up the closure of the estate with bogus filings, all the while running up fees. He has also provided inadequate representation to his client in the process by withholding information which his client has requested on numerous occasions and have been provided for the client's review.
I hired him many years ago for a small matter -- He did a very poor job. For years after I wanted the relationship to be over and he was discharges and not paid, he has continued to harass me and my family. He has tapped telephones, intercepted telephone calls, crossed wires, interfered with my communication with the world. He has come to my house, called my relatives, called me.He is as UNETHICAL as one can get. He is relentless in trying to get me and my family into litigation that I and they do not want or need.
In this current business and economic environment; this situation with this law firm and the high priced probate lawyers is becoming a bit of an anachronism and also becoming very transparent as to the pitfalls to both the consumer as well as elderly people. I am speechless and also shocked by what this private group gets involved with concerning people's assets and estates. They seem to have a lack of business ethics and also scruples and I have had major money being taken out of my accounts and other illicit transfers. They have also seemed to have elevated what they do in the public's eyes to having more stature and importance than the medical profession or business people. I think that their ability to deal with people's assets and to manipulate issues in the probate court is dangerous and this area should be regulated to protect the public. I don't recommend this law firm or lawyer because of a lack of ethics as well as integrity. It appears that the dollar sign is of primary importance to them and the client's needs are secondary. I was being duped and manipulated in estate matters as well as this law firm having engaged in huge conflicts of interest and total mishandling of IOLTA accounts. .. This is very, very bad and I think they have done a masterful public relations job representing their abilities to the general public. I have also had real estate money misappropriated and commingled...
HIRED BY A FRIEND OF MY UNCLE, WHO HAD SEVERE DIMENTIA AND WAS 94 YEARS OLD, TOGETHER WITH HIS COLLEAUGES AT BURNS AND LEVINSON TRIED TO REMOVE ME AS GUARDIAN EVEN THOUGH I WAS THE CLOSEST FAMILY MEMBER AND HAD BEEN AWARDED TEMPORARY GUARDIANSGHIP. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT EVEN AFTER I WON THE PERMANENT GUARDIANSHIP, THEY CONTINUED TO BILL MY UNCLE FOR TENS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS. CAN YOU BELIEVE HE AND HIS COLLEAUGE LISA CONTINUED TO ARRANGE "MEETINGS" WITH A 96 YEAR OLD MAN AT THE CARE HOME INTO WHICH HE WAS PLACED, EVEN FORCING A MEETING WHEN UNCLE HAD URINATED IN HIS TROUSERS AND WAS SUFFERING SEVERE MENTAL DIMENTIA? I MEAN ARE THESE PEOPLE HUMAN? DO THEY HAVE ANY HUMANITY AT ALL? HE DOESN'T , OBVIOUSLY.
THE MAN IS ONY INTERESTED IN WHAT HE CAN GAIN FOR HIMSELF, HE IS A SLEAZEBALL OF THE HIGHEST ORDER AND IF YOU HIRE HIM YOU HAD BETTER GO HAVE YOUR HEAD EXAMINED, BECAUSE HE WORKS FOR HIMSELF.....NOT.. I REPEAT NOT FOR HIS CLIENTS. HE EVEN CARRIED ON BILLING MY UNCLE KNOWING FULL WELL THAT MY UNCLE WAS PAYING MY ATTORNEYS FEES IN THE GUARDIANSHIP CASE. HOW DEMENTED IS THAT???
I made the mistake of hiring Brian Bixby. At the end, he said to me "When you are afraid people will hurt you and that is why I hurt you ". His representation was inadequate. I cannot recommend him.
he took a case outside his specialty and messed it and me up beyond repairl
