A number of years ago I purchased a trust with Mr. Borris at an auction (paid quite a bit). We met and it was not completed for a variety of reasons at the time. I follow up with him and year ago and was happy to find he was going to honor completing the trust/will etc. Well that was OVER a year ago, I call him regularly over the last year and each time he says "I am going to get it out to you in the mail in a couple of days" very friendly, apologetic. and then nothing. I still don't have it, he reports he has many problems in his life right now that make it hard for him to follow thru, but again promises to send it (did actually send it at one point but did not include my daughters name correctly and I asked him to correct a few errors, simple you would think.). Basically I just want the trust done or to be told, I'm not doing it you are just out of the money go somewhere else. I am happy to remove this if you would just complete what you have on multiple times agreed to do.

I had a difficult time accepting my divorce about 13 years ago and I was no doubt a very confused client. Yet he was there for me the whole time. I stopped using him when I asked to contest my divorce, and he would not do it telling me you cannot contest a no-fault divorce in the state of California, and I was not ready to accept that, and I ended up with a much worse attorney and then finally a very good one. Had I stayed with Bob, I would have been much better off.
Bob was very compassionate, patient, yet assertive, highly knowledgeable, and experienced. He and another attorney, Vickie Norwich probably unknowingly inspired me to start thinking about law school here in Fresno. I haven't decided whether to pursue it, but my wife and I know we at least want to study law for the benefit of being knowledgeable in it.

I initially contracted with Attorney Robert Borris via my insurance program about 10 years ago. Then his work was sloppy and often late. However, as he had background on my issues so I continued to contract with him and his sloppy work got even worse. He is a "glad hander" Will spend more time getting to know you and discuss your interests in lieu of doing effective legal work. The latest was a simple case that should have been negotiated but he managed to get it into the court system. Then when he found out I had more disposal financial resources his estimate jumped from $1,500 to $20,000. He also guaranteed an hourly fee of $225 per hour but billed me for $300. Per hour. He was so unresponsive I ended up having to make contact with the attorney who represented the other person involved. I initially paid him $1,500 retainer and later another $1,500. Because he did not return phone calls, emails, letters I cancelled his “services” and demanded a return of the second $1,500. He has refused to return the funds and now I have to contract with a capable attorney to continue my case. This is particularly difficult as am in very poor health and in and out of hospitals on a regular basis. There is more and I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
Your Desired Resolution:
Return my latest retainer of $1,500 as no work was performed and I canceled his services
