As he sits in his Big Boy Motors office with plaques of his law degree all over the walls, He takes your money promises the world and does nothing....then says so sue me...or at least that is what he did to me. The past 6 months of a useless warranty on my van and no relief, many appointments not kept and no avail to the work that was paid to be done, I sit out my money but will pursue this as far as the courts and new papers allow me too...
His charged me far less than the $10,000.00 retainer I was quoted. Called every day to keep me posted. Got a bond reduction hearing in one day and got all charges dismissed. And my husband was facing life. So I think he is the best.
Mr. Deratany represented my brother in 2009. He was the worst lawyer, in my opinion, to ever work with. Several times when he should have objected to a statement made, he did nothing. My brother, who was 28, and had not been in trouble since he was 16, was given 10 years prison time, with 5 years probation to follow, for pawning a tv for his "racist friend". He also represented a friend of mine, and was un-available when ever he was needed by either client. He gladly took their money and did nothing to help them. I am glad he no longer practices law, but would like to locate him to get our money back, and to ask him where is the "missing" paperwork, for my brothers case. We need ALL papers, to file an appeal.
I'm sorry but I'm happy this man no longer practices. He is not knowledgeable and gave us poor guidance. He's definitely NOT responsive and should not be able to ever practice again.
I Paid and used this Lawyer and he never kept in contact with me or did he show up for the court appearance and a warrant was put out for my arrest. I now cannot find this man.
Todd is an EXCELLENT lawyer, but beyond that he charges an affordable fee. He charged me HALF of what every other lawyer in town quoted and got me the outcome I wanted, which 2 public defenders told me was going to be IMPOSSIBLE to get.
I Never had one issue with Him nice forward and to the point..
Had a problem related to Wife and it got resolved with no problems
He is one of the most caring lawyers I have ever dealt with. He always kept me informed at every step of the way and always explained things to me in layman's terms so I understood what was going on. He is great.
