Mr. Eisenberg contacted me telling me he could win my case. I did not call him and have found that this is his MO. I hired him on a true retainer of $4,000. He missed critical deadlines and meetings, misrepresented and lost my case and was overall a very poor lawyer. He wants the money but does not want to do the work. He sued me for and unpaid balance iand instead of the $4800 he said I owed he was asking for the amount of money he would have been paid had he WON my case instead of lost it. I won the case against me based on his engaging in legal malpractice and his failure to fulfill his fiduciary duties.
Michael D.J. Eisenberg, Attorney and Counselor at Law, is professional, highly skilled and realistic. At the onset of this case, his firm, without hesitation, put me at ease and, as promised, kept me informed as the case progressed. Even though, I reside in LaJolla and his firm is in Washington, D.C., he sustained prompt, concise communication with me, and the Agency, using modern technology (i.e. computer, telephone, etc.). The deposition setting was nothing less than first-rate; he sourced out a stellar court-reporter with "real-time" court-reporting devices. Upon arrival in the City, he was extremely prepared to represent my case. Bottom-line, he is brilliant and trustworthy.
He would tell me one thing... And do another!
He stopped returning my calls(unless he was walking his dogs)!
He missed numerous time frames set forth by the judge!
He was not family-friendly, seems my children had no worth!
He continuously lied to avoid meeting with me in person!
He avoided me @ the court house and made myself and witnesses unaware of what was going on in the courtroom!!!!
