Review Paul Staley
  • Paul Staley Abandoned Me

    1.0 star

    Posted by Pati

    I urge strong caution when considering to hire Paul Staley. In October 2011, Paul Staley represented me and my husband with a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. Our plan was for 58 months, almost five years. In December 2014, I filed for divorce, about three years into our Chapter 13, leaving almost two years. About that same time and without my knowledge, Paul Staley withdrew as my counsel and represented my husband alone in a Chapter 13/Chapter 7 conversion in January 2015. While representing my husband only, without me, Paul Staley assisted my husband as he falsely told the Court that I simply refused to join him in the conversion (a conversion I knew nothing about). Therefore, my husband alone was granted a Chapter 7 discharge, and the Chapter 13 was dismissed as to me only, thus leaving me held responsible for what appears to be thousands of dollars in debt.

    Further, Paul Staley failed to provide notification at any time that he does NOT carry professional liability insurance. (So buyer beware.)
    Additionally, Paul Staley has lost most of my file. Yes, LOST. He simply doesn't know what happened to the binder I provided him which contained all of our financial information, including our tax returns. Nor does he have hard-copy versions of any documents. He has only a few documents that he has provided me via Dropbox when I asked for my file.

    Adding insult to injury, Paul Staley has never apologized to me. Instead, he has been prideful and arrogant. He even told me that I was free to contact the State Bar to file a complaint and provided me with their Ethics Hotline phone number, which is exactly what I did. My complaint against Paul Staley has progressed to the Enforcement Unit and is being investigated for prosecution, if warranted.

    Paul Dennis Staley’s response: “Regrettably, Pati has omitted her actual bar complaint and my response to it here. True there would scarcely be space for it all. I'd be happy for her to post it all here. Sadly, because the State Bar proceedings are confidential until and unless it publishes a ruling, I can't regale readers with the "rest of the story." The State Bar's first correspondence to me arrived - by snail mail, of all things - while I was out of town until the deadline for response. It's standard procedure for the Bar to then forward a complaint to their Enforcement Division because they assume (with generally good reasoning) that the lawyer is ignoring them. Not so here. Anyhow, stay tuned for the malpractice suit Pati promises. That will, at least, be a public record I can freely share (or at least summarize here.) Also note the State Bar does not "prosecute" anyone. No crime is alleged. A brief perusal of the other reviews should provide some context and contrast for anyone tempted to take "Pati's" allegations at face value.”

  • Custody/Child Support

    What can i say about this wonderful man except gracious kind hearted and caring. Along with his team Jennifer, Ben , Max , and if im missing someone im sorry but these people did a fantastic job. This was a hard rough time for me and these gracious loving caring people took the time everyday to make sure to keep me up to date. I currently live in Dallas Tx so many of our calls or visits were via phone or email. Paul and his team helped me with custody, child support, grandparent fight. Paul did an amazing job and is still doing an amazing job. I met Paul June 2010 and still with him and i couldnt imagine myself with another attorney except him. God truly blessed me with this gracious man and his team. I dont know what I would have done without them to help me fight to the end. Thank you so much for all you have done and probably will be doing for me in the future i highly recommend this attorney.

  • The Best Bankrupcty Attorney I Could Find in San Diego

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Matt

    I used Paul first for family law. After the child custody stuff was finished I ended up needing a BK attorney because of my financial problems stemming from my breakup of my ex etc... Instead of just going to Paul even though he was good for my family law I checked a few bankruptcy attorneys out first. All I found was a bunch of people trying to get my money but not caring about my issues. One guy rushed me, another wouldn't give me a free consultation - I was like "I'm done." So I called Paul and I'm happy I did.

    We recently went through the Bankruptcy process that was an especially challenging and unique case. We used Paul Staley as our attorney. He and his staff were very patient, helpful, pleasant and professional to work with. We are grateful to Paul and his staff for helping us get a chance for fresh start. I highly recommend Paul to anyone who needs legal representation for the family bankruptcy process.

    Thank you Paul,Beth, and Jennifer.

  • Good overall attorney - I do recommend him.

    Divorce sucks. Mr. Staley helped me through the hard stuff, and knew what he was doing. The result was I'm divorced and my kids are taken care of. He is really good at court with the judge, and that helped me feel more comfortable. He is also good at talking to the other sides attorney, so I didn't have to deal with him at all. I liked how his staff was nice to me, and didn't ignore me. They always were willing to help me and answer questions. I guess if you have to get divorced, he's a really good attorney to use.
