Waters McCluskey and Boehle – Lawyer in Hermosa Beach, CA

I found this listing through a web search and checked out the website which made it very clear they handled veterans disability claims and benefits. They have an entire webpage dedicated to it, in fact. I sent them an email with an inquiry making it clear I would be a new client and wished to set up a consultation. It took four days for the office manager to reply to that email and at that time she advised me that the attorney handling veteran's affairs was no longer with this firm.I was disappointed that it took four days to get a response via email and duly disappointed that their firm's website has a clearly dedicated page to veteran's benefits when he is no longer still with the firm. It's probably time to update the website and maybe have the emails responded to, especially when it's dealing with a new client, sooner than four days out. Overall, if they did still deal with veteran's benefits, I'm not sure I would hire a firm when it seems their communication is significantly lacking in multiple areas.

Stamps.Com – Lawyer in Hermosa Beach, CA

Don't do it! Don't do it! The only reason I signed up was to get a free (ha-ha) scale and maybe some stamps – it doesn't work that way. The 'free' scale is cheaper on Amazon than the shipping they charge to send it. Oh, I also joined because they advertise on the Adam Carolla podcast and I figured they get some sort of commission so I was trying to help them out. No stamps, no scale, and I was charged $16 cuz man does 4 weeks go fast. I could have sent the $16 directly to that rich bastard Carolla – better him than Scamps. Stay away: far away :0/

The Law Office Of Steven D Harowitz – Lawyer in Hermosa Beach, CA

I scheduled a 4pm appointment here last week and arrived 20 minutes early assuming I'd need some time to fill out initial paperwork. After 5-6 pages and 20 minutes, I handed the paperwork in to the secretary (who was extremely friendly) and was told the attorney was not in the office at the moment but he should be "about 5 minutes". 20 minutes later, another appointment walks in who was also scheduled at 4pm. At 4:35pm, the other attorney comes in rushing and takes them before me. I guess their appointment was going to go by quicker, however, taking an appointment that was 20 minutes late over someone who was 20 minutes early/on-time is just poor business management and a great way to make a bad impression on a new client. At 4:45pm, I decided to leave, I had other engagements and was never called or contacted by the original attorney I spoke with (who also did not mention I would not be seeing him but another attorney) and no apologies were evern made for the hour of wasted time.
