Misrepresentation to a new high
Mr Gaughan was hired to represent me in court for recovery of rent & damages from a delinquent tenant. I was confident of my case, since all documents confirmed my position. The Rental Agreement, which the tenant signed, states that in the matter of any legal action, the prevailing party would be awarded all court fees, filing fees and attorney fees. The ruling was in my favor - Gaughan said "Say nothing! I'll get you your money!" He did not demand the monetary award I wanted, but deliberately orchestrated a LIEN. In addition, he garnished my bank account for his fees, which again were clearly and legally owed by the defeated defendant. I'm out more than $8000 in a matter of 3 hours! Now NY Erie County is foreclosing on this property - I won't see any of my $$$. For legal advice, Mr Gaughan is GONE!!
