    • I do not recommend Raymond Gessel.
    • I hired Raymond more than 3 years ago.
    • Raymond handled my Business matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Terrible Experience! Initial meeting went well, but after he got my money he did not perform. He advise me to make some bad financial decisions. He told me it would take 90 days. After a 1 year - still nothing completed. Does not return phone calls or emails. Repeatedly asked for updates without a response. Asked for the rest of my retainer back...needless to say still have not heard from him. STAY AWAY!

  2. Not someone to count on.

    • I do not recommend Raymond Gessel.
    • I hired Raymond more than 3 years ago.
    • Raymond handled my Bankruptcy / Debt matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I hired Raymond to handle my husband's and my bankruptcy. The initial consultation was wonderful and I left feeling confident that I would be well taken care of and the decision was a little easier for me. With the exception of his assistant, who was very friendly and knowledgable, post consultation, Raymond did a complete 180. He never returned my phone calls and if he did, he would claim to be "working on it RIGHT NOW". Then I wouldn't hear from him again. I have heard through the grapevine that he is back on his own again after being let go from the firm that he started with and only stayed for 6 months or so. Bankruptcy is a very difficult decision to make and not something that you want to go through with someone who doesn't answer your questions or blows you off. I would suggest going through almost anyone other than him unless you want to basically be your own attorney.

    Does not return phone calls to clients. Does not keep up on his cases and lets important deadlines go by the way side. Nice guy, but not reliable.
