Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
I looked it up on the database per below. Still seems to be a front. Have been there many times and never met a partner named Cohen, and in fact the name of the other partner Cohen has a page on the ointernet as a firm in his name only and seems to own a legal internet marketing company specializing in lawyers. If this partnership is more or less a front, is that a violation? This lawyer really took me for a ride, and his recent actions of filing a complaint then backing off the next dayy wanting to take it off the table, then resigning and making false claims, which caused the opposition to attack me based on his false claims is really damaging. At one point he said about my form er lawyer "did you get that in writing" and I said "No" his response was. "then he'll lie about it". That was disturbing and is when I asked him for a bill which he'd never billed me but constantly asked me for meetings to discuss things he never followed up on. After, did not want meetings without clear purpose and he got really snarky and nasty after. Wish I never hired this man. He had a legal assistant of 4 years go on maternity leave, then after complained "I'm just one guy". He should not have taken my case and is a terribly disorganized person, who after I never received the home appraisal for weeks discovered he sent it to another client from FL. Who as it was grew up with me, and he discussed my father, which was unethical and still never emailed me the appraisal though I got a hardcopy after that. I wanted to buy the house, and he sent a network partner, who specializes in selling distressed properties who was trying to talk me out of buying it. This lawyer turned out to me a nightmare, and the fact he quit, and lied about the reasons is hurting my case and of course makes it harder to hire another lawyer. I know it's not a real partnership but below is what it says on the database.
