Rice & Rice, Attorneys at Law – Lawyer in Oceanside, CA

Unorganized, inexperienced staff. Particularly her Son, Eric. Your worst nightmare if you want a quick, easy, smooth, and most of all, affordable divorce. Be prepared to be embarrassed in front of your ex when your attorney consistently is a no show in court and they seem to be learning the law as your case moves along like it's the first time they've seen a courtroom. Then prepare to be lied to. As you can see from the [four] fake 5-star reviews that Yelp removed that were written by Eric and Debra themselves. They were pretending to be clients that were cleared from Felony DUI charges in order to raise their rating on Yelp until they got caught. They obviously have no problem falsifying information to lure you in and take your cash. I'll include a picture of one of the fake reviews so you can see for yourself.

Powell Ronald A Law Offices of – Lawyer in Oceanside, CA

Funny this guy keeps trying to delete his reviews fromavvo.combut they will continue to go back up. BEWARE!!! Possible malpracticeHere is your review:This was the worst investment of my life. I hired this attorney on a DUI case. He totally screwed us. 1st felony dui he got 2 years vs the 16 months the public defender was offering. Lawyer said they "roll the red carpet when he walks into the court room" YEAH RIGHT. Claimed he's a big time murder lawyer been practicing over 20 years. Just so happens that my boyfriend is now facing an exposer of 9 years on a .07 dui with no injury. Originally seen as a misdemeanor. I have retained another attorney to help with this Ludacris sentence. If you want to be in a worse position than your public defender hire this guy. He met my boyfriend the 1st time at court. We gave him all the supporting documents and he didn't even review them with us to even know what he received. Now if my boyfriend handled his misdemeanor DUI prior to this guy handling his case he would have got 6 months vs trying to fight 9 years. This guy is a joke then responds and tells me I'm co-dependent. My boyfriend felt like he was fighting against him not for him the entire time. That's not what we hired you for. Of course he will respond with some retarded message to make himself look good but in 20 years I am the only review so I have seen no happy clients yet. I wish I made better decisions with his freedom. He talks too much and does nothing. If you made a mistake and need help don't go here. You will regret it like I do.Warm Regards,JeremeAvvo Customer Care

Blumenthal Law Offices – Lawyer in Oceanside, CA

The previous review for Virginia Blumenthal is not from a client, but obviously a friend astroturfing the business. In reality, Virginia was not a good lawyer. She did not prepare our witnesses correctly for the case. She did return original documents to us even after multiple requests. She does not respond to client communication. She summarily lost an easy case for us due to laziness. She clearly does not even understand the basics of trial law as she informed us of the trial decision and reported the results to us completely backwards. Our experience was so bad that we are thinking about suing for malpractice.

Law Offices of Scott Lee Rose and Patrick J Barntt – Lawyer in Oceanside, CA

We hired Scott Rose to represent us in a child support case. We had done ALL of the research & leg work to support our stance in this case. My husbands ex had lied about the lack of income when we proved she in fact had made income. We made it clear to Mr. Rose that we had full intention of going before the judge. The day of our hearing Mr. Rose was so unprepared & unprofessional, he actually sat on the bench outside the courtroom & ordered my husband to go get to opposing counsel for him??!! Awkward! He couldn't find papers that we had faxed him promptly (as he asked) , that he spent 1/2 the time trying to get abreast on the facts & locate these papers after he accused us of not sending them! We showed him the confirmation email his secretary had sent us that she in fact HAD recieved the fax! He shouted at us, insulted us & flat out said he did not feel confident representing us & that we needed to settle with the lying ex. He forced us into a corner.. We could have represented ourselves (as we did ALL of the work) & had the facts straight. 2 months after the court date we got an ADDITIONAL bill that was marked Passed Due!! The lack of organization, the lack of discovery of the case & it's facts cost us a lot of $ in attorney fees & now in child support. I would highly advise to not hire Scott Rose.

The Law Offices of Joseph M. Tosti – Lawyer in Oceanside, CA

I didn't use his lawyer service so bear that in mind as I give this review. I saw the five star rating here on Yelp and since he was the only one rated, I entered my information into his website. The dude personally called me back which I was impressed with but that is where it ends.I sat in his office forever even though I had an appointment. He walks into the office late and doesn't even say hi to me! I was sitting there waiting. I didn't even know who he was or if he really was the lawyer. Then when I did get the chance to speak to him, he was very rude to me. Saying I needed to file right away. Didn't want to discuss other options I may have had or ask questions about my situation. It was more like "give me money". I didn't care for his attitude. It is hard enough to have to go through bankruptcy but I don't want to go through it with a mean uncaring attorney. He may be good as the other yelper pointed out but I'd rather look elsewhere…The price he quoted me was high. At the time I didn't know because he was the first person I spoke with but as I've begun to talk to other people, I realized that he was 25% more than other folks…
