I interviewed a lovely woman attorney at this firm who detailed what was involved in having an estate issue go thru probate. Based on her specific information and estimate of cost I agreed to use this firm. I was/am the ONLY beneficiary of my husbands estate and will. It should have been a simple matter, and in fact I was told by others that I could actually file this with the court on my own. I was quoted a cost of about $1500. to include filing with the court and following up stock company for titling this one asset into my name.
The reality is, I was billed in excess of $4000. and the process to title my husbands stock was handled poorly in my opinion and the matter will not be resolved by this firm ..the real issue is THIS MAN LIED TO ME twice in less than 10 minutes: He stated that one MUST have an attorney to file documents in probate court (not so) I questioned this, he insisted that ONLY an ATTORNEY could handle this. LIE #1. He also stated that "quote" No firm in the country, or ANYWHERE would charge less" Lie #2: When I asked him to sign a statement to these facts he refused, then said, well IN SOME CASES a person can file, if there is only one beneficiary... I found him to be A SLEEZY lawyer who lied and tries to intimate. I believe he is overcharging for inferior work .. which was done by a clerk, and I would NEVER recommend him or this firm for anything..
