I talked to several attorneys before I decided that Lynn Bernabei could have my case, she called me and requested a pre consultation fee of $300.00 to decide if I had a case that had merit, my case was EEO and federal employment related. I finally relented and allowed her to be my attorney and she told me that after $8000.00 that she would go to a contingency fee agreement, she used up my retainer of $5000.00 and then drop my case to a junior attorney who knew very little about employment law, Every month when I got my bill I would send an e mail and request that she explain my case to me , and every month I would hear from the junior attorney saying that Ms. Bernabei would call me about my bill, each time she called me about my bill she charged me for the call and up to date we have not resolved my bill. The junior attorney dropped an action in the middle of the case and said that she would not be filing an appeal for me, this left me without an attorney and I had to file the appeal myself. I received a letter from Ms. Bernabei stating that if I won my appeal she expected to be paid. I would not recommend this attorney.
