I paid this attorney $5500 in 2007 to represent me in a State Pardon. He said it would take about one year to get this done. After two years he still hadn't filed any paper work. Once I forced him to file,every year he would say he would resolve, but needed one more year. It's been eight years and nothing. No phone calls with any updates, nothing. Been trying to get refund for past two years, but nothing yet. Next is complaint filed with Florida Bar.
I do not recommend Bernard Daley.
This lawyer took $1,250 from me and made so many unfulfilled promises. I should have known from the very beginning that he was not legitimate when he insisted that I wire transfer the money directly into his checking account. Very good at making promises but not good at keeping them. I have repeatedly requested that he refund my $1,250 with no success. Not only does he now totally refuse to return my phone calls, he refuses to accept them.
At this point, I have lost faith that he would ever care about doing an honest job for me or for anyone else for that matter.
I WAS IN PRISON AND SAW HIS FLYER AND GAVE HIM A CALL WHILE IN CONFINEMENT AND I WAS FULLY PROTECTED BY MR DALEY HES VERY REASONABLE ID YOU CARE ABOUT YOUR FREEDOM HE GOT ME OUT OF PRISON MONTHS EARLIER THAN MY RELEASE DATE . VER VERY GOOD ATTORNEY
This lawyer took 20,000 from us in 2007 and made so many promises. He's good at that. Here it is 2012 and as far as I know nothing has been accomplished. When I contact him, he makes more promises and says he will be working on my brother's case in the next couple of weeks. Months (and years) go by and I hear nothing. I am several states away and cannot just walk into his office and he knows that. Basically, he will just say anything to make us go away for awhile. If he is really an honest lawyer, he should return our money so that we can go to a reputable attorney. I can't believe attorneys get away with this. At this point, I have lost faith that he would ever care about doing an honest job for us.
Mr. Bernard F. Daley Jr. handled a Post Conviction matter for me and did a great job. He kept me informed and stuck with it until he got the Justice I deserved. I am thankful to Mr. Daley for giving me back my life and my freedom. J.B.
