Deborah Tassie used an outdated form for the state of Ohio and also completed forms incorrectly for estate planning, causing the forms to be rejected by the end recipient. She also deleted the original documents she created and did not have them as a reference when I had follow up questions (less than 2 months after initial correspondence and while we were still awaiting final confirmation/acceptance from the end recipient). I certainly understand and respect that mistakes can occur; the core issue was not the mistakes that were made, but her unwillingness and lack of professionalism to fix the issues and correct the forms. I had to find a new lawyer to finish the work she started--and that she was paid in full for--but that she did not complete correctly. She was unwilling to correct the forms based on the end recipient's feedback and instead said the end recipient was wrong. She was completely unaware of, and unwilling to accept, her own mistakes in creating and filling out the legal paperwork. Further, she was inflexible in her way of thinking and trouble shooting problems, following only one formula/approach--even when that approach /formula was rejected (forms returned) by the end recipient. She did not care at all about customer satisfaction and took no steps to try to "right" the situation when I let her know I was unhappy with her legal services. I felt that she only cared about a pay check and did not sense that she takes pride in her work and a job well done. Deborah Tassie is the most difficult and unprofessional lawyer I have ever worked with and while she likely has other, happy, clients, I am not one of them. I would not recommend her services.
