He was hired to defend me against a drug allegation, I was not guilty (a urinalysis proved that). I ended up paying him $1000, was found guilty, and had to attend PC1000 classes, which cost me $500, and almost my job. I would never hire him at any cost.

Mr. Pasto told me from our very first meeting that he was going to take my home away from me because he could and that there was nothing I could do to stop him. After several years and a lot of money he did just that. He had no reason to pursue this action but I could not afford to fight him any longer. So I lost everything to him.
