Law Offices of Michael J Holmes – Lawyer in Pomona, CA

I have hired many attorneys in my life (had a custody battle earlier in life), of all the attorneys I have hired Holmes was the worst and I have had some pretty bad ones, mostly due to their inexperience. He took my money and appeared to be more concerned with preserving his relationship with the DA then representing me (he claimed "she likes me"). It is funny that all the responses he makes to his negative reviews are denial they were ever a client. I recognized him from his picture in his response and know he was the attorney I hired. He made his court dates but never advocated for me with the DA. I have had much better representation from a Public Defender in the past. I was particularly intrigued by the reviewer that stated Holmes responded to him "I'm sorry I couldn't help you, but you will always be the criminal." I had a similar response from Holmes. I found it unusual that a "man" in his position would rely on such elementary attacks as name calling. It really caught me by surprise and I was unable to even raise myself above his juvenile approach to muster up a response at the level of my cognitive functioning. I know the difficulty in finding a good attorney so hopefully this will assist someone in avoiding this attorney and having a difficult situation made worse by poor representation in court by an attorney not invested in doing the best for his client.

Kendall Gkikas & Mitchell LLP – Lawyer in Pomona, CA

UPDATE:Shortly after I posted this review I was contacted by Cathy from the Law Firm. She sincerely apologized and extended her number to still set up a consultation. First impressions are everything, and unfortunately theirs happened to be a poor one. I do however, feel like it is fair to update the original review. Even though I will not be retaining their services at this time, I was both surprised and thankful for the swift apology. Kudos for the attempt to make it right.JUST called the phone number to inquire about scheduling a consultation. The office attendant/receptionist had a very cold greeting. It did not include her name, nor the name of the business I was calling. I said, "Hello, I'm inquiring about scheduling a consultation?" And then, she hung up. Guess I will continue my search.

Law Offices Of Paul A Eads – Lawyer in Pomona, CA

This attorney is an absolute joke! I went to him to draw up the paperwork for my divorce. He charged me a retainer fee of 2900 dollars! He had my information and had begun on my file for less than 48 hours before I called him to cancel everything-because my spouse and I had decided to try and work things out. I had to ask multiples times for a refund, and when he finally sent it I was shocked to find out that the refund check was for only 1845 dollars!!! He did tell me that he would be deducting the PayPal fees of 75 dollars, but I was unaware that he would be charging me another 980 dollars for work that he had already supposedly done on the case. I feel violated, and like he completely took advantage of me and my situation. I will be doing absolutely everything I can to make sure that NO ONE hires this attorney to represent them.I also want to mention that his office is at his home, and that no where in his office does he have his licenses or education diplomas displayed. I thought this was odd at first, and should have stuck with that instinct!I am also in the process of working with my credit card company to recoup at least some of the 980 dollars I feel that he stole from me!SHAME on YOU Mr. Eads!Mr Eads-In regards to your response, all I am going to say, is that YOUR low rating speaks for itself. I only wish I would have checked yelp before hiring you!

Reinecke Law Firm – Lawyer in Pomona, CA

If I can give it less than one star I would. DO NOT HIRE TOM AS YOUR LAWYER. He said all kinds of things and did none of them. I had to contact him constantly to find out the status of my case. Also he filed the case in court before it was required so that he could charge me more. He also said he would get my get my medical insurance settlement down to nothing, which didn't happen. He told me the case was a half a million to million dollar case and didn't get a 1/4 of that, and then he took as much from the settlement as I got. Do yourself a favor and find a better lawyer. Toms lies through his teeth, he will say anything whether it's about his 2 sets of twins or where he goes to church. This guys a hypocrite please don't have what happened to me happen to you. There are other guys out there that aren't looking to rip you off but rather represent you like you would expect them to.

Law Offices of Marc Grossman – Lawyer in Pomona, CA

I have been a client of this firm since I hired them to deal with my divorce in 2008. NEVER have I refused to make a payment or been late on any payment for that matter. During my case they did a poor job at keeping me informed of what was giong on. They only thing they ever cared about was stating how much I owed every time my allowance was up and I gladly turned my payments in. When it came time to go to court, my original attorney didn't even represent me because he was on vacation. The one they sent in his replacement did a poor job at defending me because he seemed to know nothing about my case and I lost my case. Today, Mr Grossman calls me directly accusing me of not wanting to make a payment on a blance I haven't even been billed for. NEVER did I say I was not planning to make a payment, he made verbal assumptions over the phone and threatened to send me to collection.I have worked in the banking customer service industry for 14 years. I've dealt with every type of client. This is not a way to treat a client, especially a loyal one who put up with them since 2008 without ever complaining about their poor follow up.
