I have known John E Bedi for over 20 years and retained his services for a third time. When I contacted his office in March to file my case, the secretary accused me of saying something that I did NOT say, which seemed highly unprofessional for someone working in a law firm. I followed up the next day regarding a message I left for John, and she told me it takes up to 3 days for a return call. I paid $ 1575.00 for a simple no-asset Chapter 7 bankruptcy. John did not show up until nearly 20 minutes after my scheduled hearing time, so I was not able to ask him a question about a form the trustee asked us to fill out, and during the several minute period before my case was called, I could not even get his attention because he spent almost the entire time looking at what appeared to be his phone. After my discharge, I recovered a nominal amount of money from a business that attempted to defraud me and immediately tried to contact John to determine if it would impact my bankruptcy case. I left a message with the same secretary, and after waiting an entire week for a call that was NEVER returned, I drove nearly 30 minutes to his office to hand deliver a letter about the situation. When I came into the office, the same secretary rudely directed me to have a seat, and after making me wait several minutes, finally acknowledged me. After leaving the letter, I received an email telling me their office no longer represented me. If that was the case, she should have told me that when I called instead of making we wait an entire week for a call that was apparently never going to be returned, and before I wasted my time and gas driving to his office just to be mistreated and dismissed. I was reaching out to him about a matter that directly involved the bankruptcy that I paid him $ 1575.00 to represent me on, and do not understand why his office acted like it was none of their concern, and with all due respect, for a man that very openly shares his faith, you would think he could have had enough compassion to take a few minutes to speak to a client that was financially victimized by a local business. In the end, I had to contact the court myself and resolved the situation. I was very disappointed with the representation that I received as a return client of the Law Office of John E. Bedi, and CANNOT recommend his services to the rest of the general public. *** Update *** I received a message from John Bedi stating that other clients complained about the horrendous job that the receptionist had been doing and that she had been fired or removed. Unless he is insinuating that it was HER fault that he showed up late to my hearing, or that it was HER decision to apparently reply to my hand delivered letter with a rudely dismissive email claiming I was no longer their client, and that SHE failed to tell him that I had called the week before, then his attempt at an apology does little or nothing to resolve my feeling that I did NOT get the representation that I worked very hard AND put hundreds of miles on my personal vehicle to help pay for. I was truly alarmed that an attorney, who is supposedly obligated to protect the privacy of his clients, would so callously leave a voicemail for someone that he was not even confident was the complaining client, discussing the performance and reason for separation of a former employee.
