Be specific-explain what your lawyer did...DID??..He did NOTHING. I paid $4000.00 and all he DID was make a few phone calls from the comfort of his office. He didn't even show up in court. He sent an under experienced minion instead. I told him what I wanted done and if I hired him could he do it? He said "Yes", I gave him the check, and he Laughed all the way to the bank! In fact, I have evidence and a witness, that strongly suggest there was a breach of confidence re: my case. I am submitting it to the Bar Association.
Philip Fientuch, Have a nice day!!

In my case, Mr. Feintuch did not recommend a competency trial when one was warranted. He also appeared to be supporting the other side's argument. At one point I had to clarify where he stood. During trial he came to me and said, "I don't know what else to say" when he was making his argument. Clearly he was not prepared. I would not recommend him.

He was rude and curt with me even though I was his client. He didn't negotiate hard with the opposing counsel and advised me wrongly on a default judgment. He advised me to settle even though i claimed it wasn't my debt. He then wrongly advised me to go to court and file to remove the wage garnishment and the court told me otherwise when I went down to the court. He didn't bother to follow up with the opposing lawyers and in the meanwhile my wages were being garnished. He didn't complete what I had paid him for in advance and I had to fire him. My next lawyer got the judgment thrown out of the court and closed the case without me having to pay a dime since it wasn't my debt. Philip Feintuch is a terrible lawyer and I wouldn't recommend him to anyone.
