My wife ran off with her boyfriend and took the kids with her. Of course, I was distraught and was not sure what to do. I found Attorney Bargas online, and he assured me that he could get me custody of the kids. Then we finalized my divorce, in just 6 months and I have full sole custody of my children.
Dario Bargas advertises $500 uncontested divorce and $1,500 contested flat fees for divorces. That is super cheap and you get what you pay for. He will bill his clients .25 hour for a 1 minute comminication, ending in over 2 hours of charges for communications that actually took less than 4 minutes time. He advertises free consultation but then after being hired will bill the client for the initial consultation to the tune of $600.
Mr. Bargas does not know basic legal concepts that any attorney should know for example... in a divorce any attorney ought to know that one spouse cannot give the other spouse a trespass warning and change the locks. That is not lawful yet he advises his clients to do exactly that and then tells his clients that the police don't know the law. It is Mr. Bargas who does not know the law.
His bad advice to his clients creates not only financial damages beyond calculating but could put people in harms way, something he apparently has no problem with. If you want a lawyer who does not know the law, does not know how to spell trespass, does not know local rules, does not know civil procedure or even how many days notice he must give to set a temporary orders hearing then he is your man.
If you want a huge mess that you have to pay another lawyer to clean up and If you want an attorney hat will bill you over $6,000 to write an unlawful letter to your spouse, give you unlawful advice, file a document full of errors and mistakes, then charge you for all of his mistakes then by all means hire Mr. Bargas.
I hire this law firm to take care of a SIMPLE case. Well after 2 years of NOTHING, but telling me forget about the case, walk away. Than within 2 week they withdrew from the case taking my $1000+ that I paid them. I have now file 1 law suit in distract court suing them for ineffective council. I am in the process of filing another law suit which I will file in federal court on the owner of this law firm for violating my civil right.
The worst lawyer firm you could deal with! Beware , do not waist your time and money with this unprofessional group of people. I hired them on May 9th for simple divorce case, well until today ( aug 27th 2013 ) nothing was done! I was told that there is a 60day grace period for court before they will schedule a hiring, So i patiently waited, i started to be concern at the end of jul that date hasn't been set. I have tried to call Mike multiple times on hes cell phone, left numerous of voice msg. Called me once saying that next week we ll have date, it was at the end of july. Since then no contact with the firm. Their assistant dosen't even answer and call back. Dario's email and cell phone is useless as well. I requested my $700 back last week. Still non of them have courage to call me back or return me money for services they DON'T PROVIDE! Stay away as far as you can unless you want to go thru huge headache as i am.
I was a client of mr bargas for 3 whole days before I had to fire him due to his unprofessional way of conducting business. He does not return calls and when he finally did, he talked down to me in a very unprofessional way and hung up on me without letting me say what I needed to say.
I met with Dario to help me with my case. He advertised on Craigslist and was the cheapest lawyer for my type of case- especially after I called around. Well, I definitely learned my lesson. You get what you pay for. Dario was unresponsive to my calls. I even showed up for my court date to find out that it had been moved. He never called to tell me this. When he asked me out on a date, I knew that was the last straw. I fired him immediately.
