    Withdrawal of " Unethical Attorney" Newcomers Recommended

    I would like for all to know that as a client of Mr. Penate, I would like to apologize for the review that was left by me. Thanks to Mr. Penate contacting me I now find that there was a misunderstanding between me and his office. Mr. Penate was not aware, nor had any knowledge of this situation. I want to thank him very much for taking the time out to contact me and solve the problem. I again apologize and recommend the hiring of Mr. Penate's firm to assist those in need of his expertise in Inmigration Law. You will not be let down by Mr. Penate and his support staff. Call him today for your appt.

    Unethical Attorney ; Newcomers "BEWARE"

    Paid Mr. Penate in full $500.00 to complete paper work on divorce from El Salvador. This is the total amount he stated it would cost, so I wrote a check for the full amount. In my check memo, to ensure that there were no additional money due I wrote " NO BALANCE DUE". ( I had been ripped off before by another inmigration attorney on Long Island). He also stated that it would only take a few months to accomplish this simple task. Three months later he requested more MONEY. I have E-Mailed Mr. Penate with no return response. On Aug. 26,2013 @ 11:27 am I called his Hempstead office and the secretary answered. When I asked to speak with Mr. Penate she than abruptly hug the phone up on me. I have tried calling the office and no one will answer anymore. I have visited other lawyers here in nassau county who also will tell you one thing and after you pay, they then come to you needing more money. Mr. Penate cashed my check two days after issue knowing the memo stated " NO BAL. DUE". I am still awaiting a correspondence from Mr. Penate. With no balance due I expect Mr. Penat to stand by Attorney's code of ethics and contact me to solve this matter.

    Excellent Lawyer

    He is a great person, and performs excellent work. He is successful in his field. I had a criminal case in District Court and Mr. Rafael Penate was able to get my charges were dismissed. He is a great lawyer and a great person.
