Letter from The Mandel Law Firm (Steven J. Mandel) 12-9-13

From YELP:

Stay away!!!  I went to this firm to get help with a divorce.  I had to take out a loan to pay the $5000 retainer fee.  I told them I had no more money and needed to fast track the divorce, but that my husband was eager to settle.  From the first correspondence, filled with typos and misspelled words, to the Statement of Net Worth that they NEVER did get right, this firm was unprofessional and inefficient.  (I should have fired them right away, but I wanted to give them the benefit of the doubt.)  For two months I kept asking what was happening, and they kept making excuses.  Then they started asking for more and more money, trying to force me to file new court papers which would cause the divorce to drag on for a year.  I finally called my husband begging him to cooperate, and he told me what my lawyer had been doing.  I fired them immediately, and am now trying to get my money back.  Since then I have discovered that they tried to sneak into my paperwork a request for another $15,000 without telling me.   BEWARE!!  NOT PROFESSIONAL!!!  They should lose their license.
