Hi, I had a similar experience with Paul Heller. He was very unprofessional to me and my family. When I went to meet with him at his office, he was often unable to answer my questions and would never give a straight answer. I was getting the feeling he really didn't have any idea what he was talking about. When talking with the paralegals on the phone, they appear to know more about immigration than he does. We got hit with all these extra fees also. For random copying or mailing or documents. We had originally thought all of these were covered in the original retainer fee, but he just keep asking us for more money. I would NEVER recommend him to any one else. Stay away, he is not an honest laywer.
Paul Heller is an incompetent lawyer, who is often rude and racist to his clients. He worked on my H1-B case and it was the worst experience in my life. He never returned phone calls. And when I did talk to him, he was always blowing me off and refusing to give status updates. He constantly increased my fees for every little thing, and since he was working on my case and I had already paid him money, I felt I had no choice but to just pay his additional fees. I felt totally taken advantage off.
Also, I looked him up on the California Bar website. He totally has lied about where he went to law school. The California Bar site says he graduated from California Western School of Law in San Diego. This is NOT the same as Hastings College of Law in SF as he claim his profile. This seems unethical to me.
You can see for yourself by searching for him in the California Bar site.
I would never recommend him to anyone. Please stay away from this lawyer.
