My Friend fell upon hard times and was served for Unlawful Detainer. I came across David Burger's listing online and called up. Katrina Smallwood, one of his Paralegals educated me on her rights and instantly turned her life around for the better! She was knowledgable and very, very helpful. We would definitely recommend this Law Firm!
I called this office on June 6 and was directed for some reason to a paralegal named Katrina Peach. I explained her the urgency of my situation about serving my Tenant with a default notice. To which she responded that if I retain the office today and pay $1000 flat fee, that she will personally serve my Tenant tonight after work in order not to lose time and send out a certified letter to him also today, i.e. On June 6th. So, I retained the office, explained that there is only one tenant and was again assured that she will serve him the same day.
So, when I call the office to follow up on June 9, Katrina never responded and I find out that she has neither personally served my Tenant with the Default Letter as she herself suggested, nor did she send the certified letter on that day!!! I further find out from their lawyer - Rachael Hammer - that the amount of owned rent is wrong on her draft letter (I sent her my Notice with the correct amount prior) and that she supposedly prepared it for another non-existent tenant. Even Rachael Hammer herself suggested a full refund and assured me that she will process it immediately that day, on June9th. I am yet to receive my money back. They were quick to charge it and it took less than 5 minutes to do it. Let's see how "fast" the refund process be???
All messed up from the very beginning. Unprofessional. Unresponsive. Not knowledgable.
David helped me complete my will and estate planning work that I'd been putting off for years. He was easy to work with, answered all my questions and made the whole process a snap.
I hired the firm to help me to evict a tenant who was not paying rent. Mr. Burger explained the process to me and got the non-paying renter out quickly, got me a judgement and the attorney bill as well.
My home had been foreclosed on. Mr. Burger and his staff worked tirelessly to help me get it back. And they got my loan modified as well! Very highly recommend.
Mr. Burger was able to get me my house back after the bank foreclosed. He also got me a loan modification.
