This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
Disbarment is the most serious penalty for a lawyer. If this attorney is currently practicing law, you should contact the Pennsylvania State Bar to understand the reasons for disbarment.

Michael Mandale is not at 230 S. Broad Street - has not been at this address for a couple years by his own admittance. The Attorney in this office has declared they are no longer affiliated with him. I unfortunately gave him $300 to send the IRS a Letter of Representation and prepare a Power of Attorney form, but no letter was ever prepared and I could not get a copy of the POA after asking several times. After I asked him for proof of these two simple documents and could not get them, I was concerned. He could not answer my questions regarding the LOR, but did request me to send him the $1,400.00 to prepare an Offer in Compromise. He said he did not accept credit card; only cash and check made out to his name personally and not a business name. I begin researching to learn more about him, the three reviews before I met with him were good, but after I got concerned I was scammed, I found I was. I uncovered several terrible reviews from very upset individuals that were out of thousands of dollars. As hard as it was for me to loss $300, one couple was out $3,000 and no representation as promised. This couple was continuous told when demanding answers that he was not in the office for one reason or another and they later found no work was done, which resulted in an IRS Levy. PLEASE, you are already in financial jeopardy and do not need someone to take what you have left and do nothing.

I was reffered to Mr. Mandale after I had a few tax related issues with the IRS. Mr. Mandale was able to negotiate with the IRS on my behalf and was able to settle for less than I actually owed. For the most part the process was painless as he took care of all the work. I would certainly reccomend his services to someone else in a similiar situation.

I have been dealing with Michael Mandale for years now and he has always been very attentive and prompt with all of my legal needs. I look forward to working with Michael for many more years to come. If you know anyone that needs any legal advice I would more then recommend using Michael for his services.
