Sagaria Law firm collected $1000 from me up front before providing any type of service. After I chose not to pursue a bankruptcy, (There was never a court filing. ) I was unable to get any staff to assist me in receiving a refund. I was given the run around for over six months with excuses for the delay in refunding. I never talked to the same person, there were always excuses. When I finally received a check, it was a VERY small refund with no itemization of the money they kept. They are very unprofessional.

I had decided to go to this firm so I can get access to their larger resources and get more information and support. However, they did not do anything to provide any guidance, they did not even get me ready for going to court. They charged a big retainer fee to represent me. Then on the court date, without any prior notice, they called me while I was driving to court, and they asked me to double my retainer fee by giving them my charge card! Otherwise they would not show up at court! When we attended the court, the attorney did not even know what to propose as a settlement and he did not have any documents for my case. He asked to borrow my copies! I had to decide on the spot to come up with a proposal.
Later, they charged me for the full amount that was retained. I asked for a breakdown of the fees. They had created phony charges about how they researched my case and had made documents for court While they had not even made a single attempt to create a proposal for my case. Even the filing of my divorce decree had mistakes and we had to redo it. I don't know if these people have a conscious and how do they live with themselves.

I was going to hire an attorney (who will remain nameless, because I still have some respect for him), but things went very bad when I decided to go with a different attorney. I didn't get a response from a question for a week, and I was frustrated about it. I tried to get my money back, and emailed Brittney Kline. She is the one that handles the refunds. She asked me why I wanted a refund. I told her.....then days passed by and no response. I tried calling and e-mailing....nothing. So I went to my bank and wanted to see if they would let me dispute it. They said that could take up to 30 days. They advised me to take it up with Brittney for a faster refund. At that point, she said she would only refund the money if she got written notification from the bank with them stating that they would not dispute the charges. I called the bank back and they said they would never send an email like that. The blame for this mess lies partially on one person at the bank for even saying they would send that in the first place. I am so angry that they took the money I already asked them not to take because I decided to go with another attorney. THEN, to make matters worse, the attorney (who will stay nameless) has the guts to call me up and tell me that I usually wouldn't get a refund because he already put in work answering simple questions for me and that if I wanted to, I could come back and they would match my attorney fees and beat them by $100. He also said that usually anything under $500 would not get refunded. I told him the bridges have already been burned. I like the attorney I have now.

I've hired him for a divorce and child custody matter for myself. He took more than $20000 dollars and keep abusing me using his staff. He hires worst kind of people in his reception, associate and so on. He never paid me a bill. Always mentioned "no worry" we'll fight your case because I had no reason to loose my childs time. He kept on asking me more money seeing that I'm so emotional for my child. I kept paying him until about 8 months with no bills. When the matter was absolute favorable to me in court he played so that case does not resolve and he an make more and I do not get my time with the child. The I changed the attorney but he refused to handover the papers and also refused to sign the substitution. That time I did not know how this things works and I keep paying thousands of dollars to get out of him.
If you do not believe what I'm saying make sure to review his rating and client comments on another website. Run away from him right now before you loose your money and most importantly your your happiness.

After working with Scott for slightly over a year and Tens of Thousands of dollars later he literally did NOTHING for me. He not only did nothing he hurt me financially by not representing me properly to have a fair divorce settlement. He hid information and allowed me to sign a document by hiding the details of a binding divorce settlement. He lied to me and never got me my day in court with a proper hearing. He was utterly disorganized during a crucial meeting with apposing parties. The apposing parties later laughed at his incompetence and asked me where I found him. His behavior over the telephone at times was angry and uncontrolled. In the end I would have been better off just working out my divorce myself. Instead I basically had to walk away. Pretty discouraging. Rather than go through what I went through ..WALK AWAY

Sagaria Law failed to learn facts, never call back, staff turned over makes it imposible for one single person to know what's going on wIith your case. HE SHOULD NOT BE IN BUSINESS.
Beyond painful experience. Just when you are already living a nightmare this place makes you lose your mind. Bankruptcy costs around 3K & I didn't even try to get the money back as you can't never get a call back from this place. Run don't walk away from this place run!. Your sanity is worth more than that.

OMG. Everytime I ask for any advise or for them to follow up w anything they act like they are giving me a big favor. Never mind that I'm a paying client. The paralegal is always telling me how frustrated he gets by my questions and concerns. WTH???

Sagaria Law was very quick to get back to you by email and easy to reach by phone. My bankruptcy was very easy and painless going through the Law offices of Scott Sagaria.

Simply the best Bankruptcy Attorney in No Cal. He helped me out of a very difficult bankruptcy and gave me a fresh start. I was buried in debt after being laid off and he gave me hope, was always there to take my calls and got the job done. Thank you Scott. You truly are a blessing!

I was truly in a state of confusion over possibly losing my house to the bank and going into debt to save it before I found an advertisement for Sagaria Law. I was impressed with their business and how I was treated. They took me through the whole process and I was never alone. They followed through and my debt was released. Thank you so very much, Sagaria Law.
