Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
I went through a "real estate seminar" in which I was referred to a lawyer to get a living trust drawn up. I live in CA, and was referred to a lawyer in Nevada. I paid the Real Estate seminar people, where in turn, they paid the lawyer. I was not happy/satisfied at all with the work of the lawyer.I wanted to get my money back.The "seminar people" whom I paid, said that the work was completed, and the money would not get returned. The work was not completed sufficiently, and I can not get in touch with the lawyer. Only one of dozens of phone calls and e mails have ever been returned. I then went to a new lawyer in CA, where she mentioned that, at least in CA, it was illegal to pay a 3rd party. for a lawyer.Is this true for Nevada? I want to get $ back for insufficient work and the fact that I cannot get in touch with him for questions and changes needed in the trust.?
Also, can a lawyer practicing in Nevada, draw up a trust for a resident of California? I will give you the lawyers name if needed
Are you able to look up, and see if they are considered lawyers? It's called Performance Advantage Group: Armando Montelongo Companies. Please see attached for his letter/agreement that he initially sent to me.
No problem. Thank you. I have been so upset and disappointed with the trust lawyer. So, to reitterate...I paid the Asset Protection $1900+. They referred me to this lawyer. When I told the lawyer I wanted my money back for services not rendered, etc...he told me that I paid Asset Protection and take it up with them...
Thanks so much for your help.
OK, thank you. I did call them first, and they could not give me "advice"...only file the complaint. So, now that I know this activity is not legal, I will do that. Thank you very much for your help. Can I use your information as part of my complaint?
