Debra Levine is no longer capable of maintaining/running a practice. I met with her in January of 2014 and retained the firm to represent me in a family law matter. To date, Ms. Levine has failed to uphold the agreement we signed, she is not accessible via phone/email and does not respond to messages left with reception. She does not put the needs of her clients above her own and continuously makes excuses for her inability to do her job.
Debra and her team does not respond to repeated attempts made to discuss my case.
The motion prepared and filed was done so in the incorrect statue/code.
Debra failed to prepare for a hearing set and requested a continuance which was denied again due to her failure to respond/act in a timely manner.
Debra was to appear to present another motion filed on my behalf and did not show, nor did she return any calls or even reach out to me to explain not being there.
After being a NO SHOW, I stopped by the office to request an invoice, Debra complained that I would stop by without an appointment and refused to provide an invoice (despite the court no show).
She claims my retainer has been used up despite the fact that my case is no closer to a resolution than in January when I retained Debra.
I made an appointment to obtain an invoice and upon arrival Debra did not know how to navigate the system to print an invoice, no one on staff knew, and again many excuses were made as to why an invoice had not been prepared despite being on the calendar to get the invoice. She also claimed the retainer was all used up as indicated by a green sticker on the file. No one knows who put the sticker there.
She refuses to refund the retainer, despite not responding to various attempts to contact her, preparing legally insufficient motions, showing up 45 minutes late to court, and missing dates entirely.
I now have to wait until November just to get in front of the judge again (which I will do so with hopefully a competent client focused attorney).
This woman has been a nightmare, a complete waste of time and money. She refuses to take responsibility for her actions and the actions of those she employs. I would never recommend her and to date, still waiting on that invoice to justify the green sticker on my file.
Debra made an unpleasant process/situation much more bearable. She was very knowledgeable and treated us with dignity and respect. She always kept it real. I will not hesitate to recommend her and in fact already have done so several times.
Debra Vorhies Levine was a great help during my Chapter 7 bankruptcy. She made the process as smooth and painless as possible. She is a lawyer I would highly recommend.
Debra was a lifesaver for my wife and I when I had a business failure that could have caused us continued pain and anguish for years. Her expertise and ability to help us throughout the bankruptcy process, keeping us informed, and showing us how to improve our lives after living through this nightmare was a great relief and lessened the pain and stress of the overall experience. If I ever had an issue in this area, Debra would be my first and only call. She was great throughout the ordeal!
