We sought out Law Firms on Ask.com. We found the person addressed. Within our conversation? I addressed the fact that on Ask.com, it was only $99.00 ; instead of the $150.00 he was trying to charge us! He 'agreed' to  send my mother the check. Well? After nearly 4 days after? I had to bring up this website, and will REMOVE it, or post that he 'finally kept his word', in 'sending the agreed amount'.

My concern? Is that if it must resort to such things as this? To get any Attorney to 'keep their word'? Just how good is it? To begin with? When he does keep his Word? I will post that he 'finally paid his agreed payment' (with whatever interest acrued) as they tend to do 'similar things' IF? Their client does NOT pay them within a certain amount of time.

I will post, that Mitch did pay, what he had promised. Once it is received. Not until then. People put their 'trust' in Law Firms, to get or try to get a ' service' honestly billed! To be forced to use this Forum? Caused me concern for others, who may have possibly gone through similar issues with this particular Law Firm. To have to even 'write'? Not one, nor two? But three separate emails, then mentioning this site? Would it not cause you concern? When he pays? I WILL post it.... We even had to threaten to 'use' the emails to 'dispute' the overcharge..... Which should ALL be totally UNECCESSARY....

Abdallah Law Firm

AUTHOR: Steve - ()

I wanted to be able to let all of you know? That this site does work, to get results needed. The only reason I posted this? Was because of a promise to send that refund the following day. He did finally send her the check. His reasons were that he was in the middle of getting Married.. (Had I known that? I could have Officiated it! He is a good  guy! I can honestly understand all of the 'headaches/and Family issues! Within 'every Marriage!! I myself was married twice! Both were like 'nightmares' in the 'different viewpoints' of who pays what, when, where, how, why not!! Etc! So? Mitch! Congratulations Sir!! When I tie those 'knots'? I try to tie them 'very tight'!! My first wife left me, because I 'went into the Ministry'!! My second wife, passed away.... In November, 2009. Nine short months later? My 'only daughter' died.... At the age of 25. She had 'inherited' her mother's 'Blood Clotting Factor'.. She had had an accident (on the way to a Wedding/Renewal of Vows) of all things. I believe there? She got a blood clot in her leg. She passed away.. Here at my home, her laptop on her lap...... From a 'Pulmonary Embolism'.. Blood Clot to the Lungs/Heart area... Having raised my children in the Church.. My late wife having been a Pastor's wife? I know and believe they are in a far better place than here on this Earth.

Life changes us! We do NOT change it! Marriage is usually done at an 'Altar'. The reason for that? Mr & Mrs Abdallah? The 'two' become 'one'... And within that? We must 'die to our own will.. Many many times... To 'make our Marriage work.. No Wedding nor any Marriage is 'perfect'!! And that is why the 'Vows' are to be KEPT.. For if they are not? Divorce is one of the most devastating emotionally, financially, spiritually... Hurtful things we will ever encounter in our lives... That Holy Bible'.. As with many other faiths? Demands we remain with the other... Until 'death do we part'.. Having lived through both? The one's we love? Can and do hurt us the most.. At times... They can leave us while we live.. Or die, and leave us.. For our entire lives... Marriage is Sacred. Nations were formed and grown through those Marriages and families... Covet your love for each other.. Forgive and forget. I did tell my wives.. "If? You have/had 'ever' done anything, outside of our Marriage? I do not want to know... All that would do? Is hurt even worse.. Love thinks 'no evil'.. Believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Never seeks it's own., Is not puffed up... The GREATEST GIFT God gives us in our lives? Is LOVE..:)) Love 'covers' a multitude of sins'..... If? You want your Marriage to work? Live by that 'measuring Scripture of LOVE.. Mitch is a good guy!! You can trust him! He's hooked now! She'll for sure.. 'Keep him in line'!! :D I will surely be praying for the both of you, and your lives together.. That God would bless your lives together, and your Business will flourish. In all of this? I am leaving you with 'what I am and have been doing. Go to: www.tagged.com/ (join for free) set up your Profile.. Then? You can type in :www.tagged.com/ofthelight . Or www.tagged.com/reflectionsoflight.  You will then find out the two true Crime books of 'family members (by marriage only!)...That has blown our minds!! And sponsers. On the Reflection Profile 'ofthelight', you will see Dana, on Dr. Arnold Klein's Satu-e, in his Tri level Estate.. (He invented BOTOX!! As well? Roger Scott Craig (Beatle's Composer) is a very good friend of ours! I even played on his Keyboard! Dr. Klein was M. Jackson's dermatologist, Cher's, Dolly Partons. etc! You will find a multidude of pics on the site of that Estate. He no longer is in the US.... Long story! Another book! Another day!! Many Blessings!! Steven.................:))

Charges/Over And Above

AUTHOR: Steve - ()

On the phone? Mr. Abdallah quoted us: $5000.00 (for him) and another ($5000.000) for the professional Surveyor.

 He then sends us his 'Retainer Agreement' .... FAR Different! Than the phone conversation!!

 Attorney (per hour) $320.00

Legal Secretary:      $250.00.... In TOTAL?!!! $720 per hour! PLUS?!! Another 30 cents per mile. All lodging, food, etc, etc, etc THEN?!!!!

 Another $2,500.00

additional retainer fees (as needed)? I mean?!!! The difference between the phone call (had he told us the rest of it? We would have then and there told him "NO"!! Yet? We STILL have the problem of what he PROMISED (scams/fees) He was 'sending OUT the very next day"!! NOT!! Here it is, Tuesday, June 11, 2014? We spoke with him before that entire WEEKEND!!! And STILL NO CHECK!! Is this a SCAM? FRAUD? Or just a simple DELAY?!!!

    • SIMPLE?!!! I HARDLY THINK SO!!!!!!!!!!!

Another Email

AUTHOR: Steve - ()

!In any attempt to email this Attorney? It seems to have caused 'issues' within their software! I email them? This generally occurs when another's email box is full!!!

 To have any desire? To retain any Attorney? When he fails to EMPTY IT?!!! Makes little for DOUBT! That this Attorney may in fact RECEIVE all of what one is sending him? There is little to place any FAITH! In anyone? Who cannot be so organized? To EMPTY IT! Or at least  provide 'Folders'?!!! For those ''very important clients!!!'' I/We are finding it more than difficult! To trust this character! Nor the others (he added in the spreadsheet he sent us!) A Total of $720.00 'per  hour'! And '.1'% on any phone? Can then be ADDED UP to at least a 10 minute call, or an hour! Depending on how HE intterprets it?~!!!

What would 'you do'? If these things had to be 'charged or added' to YOUR BILL?!!! EXACTLY~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bouncing Emails?!!!

AUTHOR: Steve - ()

In all of my life, I've never emailed in group to any email, with the 'main owner' bouncing! I wondered (after a call from the owner) IF? This is/was an illgegimate website, due to the bouncing emails , that I finally FORWARDED ALL AT ONCE ... To his Group. I then checked the 'SENT FOLDER' sure enough! It went! An email should surely go through! If authentic! It did! When sent to MORE than the same Group of emails! His 'email account' could possibly had been FULL, to return 'correct spelling', then Forwarded MORE than the amount of emails went through to Abdallah Law Group. Mitch Abdallah; The Owner of the Group. I am honestly sick to death! Over this entire ordeal! To attempt to call? I got hung up on apprx 5-6 times! To try to email? His email box had to be full! They do not 'return' with the 'Exact Email address'!! UNLESS? They are UNABLE to BE DELIVERED! By being FULL!! Just PAY BACK WHAT YOU OWE!.. HOW HARD IS THAT? THEN? PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR EMAIL BOX IS 'EMPTIED'... SO YOU MIGHT RECEIVE ALL OF YOUR IMPORTANT MESSAGES.. I HEREBY CERTIFY UNDER PENALTY OF PERJURY THE ABOVE IS TRUE AND CORRECT. MY ELECTRONIC SIGNATURE VERIFIES THE SAME.

Phone call stating he had 'not heard from us'.....

AUTHOR: Steve - ()


 

With regard to your most CURRENT call? You attempted to 'state', you had 'not' heard from us? In a long time"... If? That is the Gospel Truth? Your own 'Website addresses, are all returning as 'received' here in my own files! How you now seem to believe? They have NEVER REACHED you? Nor your Office? Attempting to email you then? When they all return as 'received', or do NOT return 'Void/Unsent/Un-addressed? It means all of them are, have and shall continue to be received by the same offices, and email addresses printed on the Website? Or they 'funnel' to another site, which could possibly be construed as 'False Advertisement'. Most definitely, when you call (right after emailing you one) ASKING YOU NOT TO CALL! Right after it was in fact SENT!

 

This really is very simple Mitch! If? You wish to insist now? You have not 'heard from us'? READ... YOUR EMAILS>>>>>>>>>>> ALL OF THEM. NOT UNTIL My Mother receives her check (with accrued interest) Of 10% above the amount that 'should have been sent' (as promised)? Once that check does in fact reach my Mother's mail box? Then!! And ONLY THEN!!! Will we discuss, the 'Consent to  either 'retain' or NOT 'retain' your Services. I will in fact receive notification, these emails returned (having been sent/received) IF? You have not now 'changed' your stale ISP address.

 

Truthfully,

Steven C.

(the exact emails? From your website? Were 'copied/pasted' to the addresses on the Address Bar)....... Is it a Fradulent website then?

ALL COPY/PASTED EMAILS (ARE CURRENTLY THE PROPERTY OF THE ONE WHO WROTE/COPIED/PASTED THEM ALL; HEREIN. UNDER PENALTY OF PERJURY, ALL OF THE ABOVE, WAS/HAD JUST BEEN FORWARDED TO THE LAW GROUP IN QUESTION, FOR ALL OF THE ABOVE STATED/DOCUMENTED CLAIMS. I HAD 'OFFERED' TO HIRE HIM! AS A 'FULL-TIME EMPLOYED 'GLOBAL RETAINER', TO REPRESENT OUR WEBSITES 'GLOBALLY' WITHIN THE NEXT 24 MONTHS..... S.C.V.

Patiently Waiting?!!!!!

AUTHOR: Steve - ()

My mother and myself, had discussed just how 'long' it has/had been, since our first contact, with Mr. Mitch Abdallah. I also discussed with my Mom: "If Mitch does NOT 'back off/Debit' her Card? Agreeing to charge the $99.00 Rate (Standard); Instead of his 'Inflated $150.00 fee? We would then call, and leave the message (that I did), on his voicemail; 'do not read, nor even waste your time' IF? You do NOT want to charge what Ask.com does!

I first called, and left the Voicemail. The following morning, I attempted/called 'several times' to be 'cut off' each and every time! (Wondering THEN! IF? This possibly were a SCAM! Rather than a Legitmate Law Firm, because of the continuous 'cut offs'! Finally? On around the 5-7th Call? Mitch answered his phone! As relieved as I felt? I did go over the FACT, that I'd left a Voicemail (which his mother had had issues with the Answering System! I did speak to another Gentleman, who had asked : "Have you contacted him before"?

 

"Yes!, it has to do with an Agreement Purchase, as he transferred me over to Mitche's line. Again? I covered, that entire 'Agreement'! And the 'very stale (draw out fact) that my Mother, still after since Thursday/Friday of last week? Has NOT received her payment. Nor a call or email (letting/re-assuring us) It has/had been sent. However long it takes? To me? It was PROMISED' the NEXT DAY..... And it has been six, if we count the first day (I believe) that I chose Ask.com, to seek a Professional, for his/her Advice.! To take nearly a week? To send what had been PROMISED? The NEXT DAY? Seems negligent, laxidasical, and honestly? Uncaring.

 

We somehow 'associate' payment? With 'professionalism. A verbal agreement, and REFUSAL to pay, nor allow him to read and or 'interpret' any Document, without the first addressing of an 'Inflated Amount' of $150.00? When Ask.com OFFERS!! The same answers for $99.00? Is really a 'Rip-Off', honestly! Some do it! Others do not!

 

I gave him that same choice! I left a voicemail. Then called him as early as possible, to address the fact that he did NOT need to even read it!! IF? He was NOT WILLING to charge what they advertised. It basically was 'unfair', when we could have stopped, chosen another, and 'avoided' some 'long drawn out' Rip OFF Report, As well as 'Multiple Emails'. He 'stated' : "I don't know how to 'credit you back"! So? I'll make sure it is 'in the mail tomorrow"...... I even 'presented a potential offer to him! IF? He refunded my mom in a timely manner?

I was seeking an 'Ongoing Real Estate Retainer', in the very near Future! For the Books/Screenplays/Websites I have been running (working with the FBI now since 3 years ago), On one , of the main two Books/Movies, we will have coming out, within the next year, possibly less! Now? Unfortunately? I would not trust this person?As far as I could spit!... Let alone TRUST HIM? To 'charge me correctly', for an International Enterprise!!

 

When $50-$60.00 is really 'hard' for him to KEEP HIS OWN WORD..... Money was/has NEVER been the 'biggest issue' to/for me in Life! People are!! I would NOT be in the Pastorate! IF? I placed 'THINGS' above anything other than GOD, and His Creation.  Even If? I had over a million IN THE BANK? A Man's WORD? He is NO BETTER Than it.. If he cannot 'keep it'? How in the WORLD? Could he EVER be TRUSTED? With any other thing?

 

A Ripoff? A Delay? A Scam? Just because it was NOT WRITTEN? Does NOT negate the FACT... I have phone records (As well as multiple emails) For Mom to 'dispute the overcharge'.... With the multiple emails attempting to address the same.

 

I did NOT lose a lawyer who was 'trustworthy'!! I found one, who is having difficulty 'KEEPING HIS OWN WORD'.... IF? He will do that? What ELSE would he do/NOT DO? In 'Billing/Possibly 'Overbilling' (Which is what he attempted to do'. At first... I will post DAILY... On here. Until she advises me, having finally received  Payment....At least others NOW? Will be 'forewarned'. We cannot see the HEART of the man nor woman.. IT? Comes OUT.... Through 'Reflection', like this. The name/title of my Websites!

 

tagged.com/ofthelight  (You can join for free!) then request friendship! And the Profile will then be opened! Two very infamous murderers, we are in the process of Founding. To help Victims of Violent Crimes, Fatherless (Orphans); Disabled & disadvantaged: "A Chance To Succeed' (Non Profit); in this life....;)))

Waiting Patiently

AUTHOR: Steve - ()

I did write Mitch last night. Expressing that I was in fact reading what I had posted. I had found the 'Submit Button', but wanted to read and insure what had been written was what I may want to file, possibly later, if he were to keep his word. While reading, because of DDD/Cervical Degenerative Disc Disease and several spinal surgeries, while reading, my forefinger and others twitch and did so, initiating the post. While I was reading the post. I did re-assure him that once it was paid in full (plus accrued interest); I would see to it, it was then posted on here he had paid his bill up.

As I was emailing him? I wondered if there were possibly others within that particular Group, who may or may not have done anything similar to others within their clientele, and I hope no future clientele will ever have any similar issues to have to result in posts on this Forum, to attempt to get what is owed them as well.

When a man give his word? It should be like GOLD! Unfortunately? This day and time we seem to be living in? It is NOT that way, at all. I also wondered: "If this guy has had to have 'RipOffReport' thrown at him, now posted (albeit accidentally)? Would they possibly be this way in what we DID finally receieve? On the phone? He quoted $5,000.00 to 'shoot for a $50,000.00 figure.
 
When we got the 'Retainer Agreement? It had down to the .1 for a phone call! To paying his ENTIRE STAFF! $750.00 apprx per hour, between himself, his legal secretary, etc. Also within it? ALL other $2,500.00 'advances' in 'increments' to be ADDED.. along with 30cents per mile, all food, lodging, for him and I would guess whoever 'came along for the ride'....
 
Why people seem to believe others have SO MUCH cash?!!! Is beyond my understanding! I also told him: "I don't care IF? I did have a Million Dollars or OVER?.. your WORD IS YOUR BOND.... My Dad always said: "If a man does NOT keep his own word? How good is that man"? He is NO BETTER THAN HIS WORD.... It is sickening, to now have this on here? While we wait for him to get my Mom's money to her... When he does? I will post that he finally 'Made Good On His Own Word.... Not UNTIL THEN... There may be many others out there, with similar 'scams', 'frauds', 'mis-understandings' who may have never received their payments. Not knowing of this site, and the negativity it pops up all over the internet.
 
So? While waiting? Daily? I will continue to post, until he finally pays. Or? We will eventually USE the emails to dispute the charge (He offered 2 ways to pay) Yet when mom got on the phone? He just took  her card number! Which also made me curious! But? I had called his offices several times that very day! BEFORE He had had ANY CHANCE (so he said) To be able to read the Sales Agreement! He finally called asking IF? We wouldn't mind waiting until 5-5:30pm to go over it".. I responded: "That's fine Mitch", "as long as we get what we agreed on BACK"... He then 're-assured me he would! I also had left a voicemail on his phone/voicemail..... Which he blamed on his elderly mother not understanding the phones, etc. He had 'plenty' of dicussions with me PRIOR.... To insure the PRICE negotiated was originally the ASK.com $99.00 fee. I have requested an interest payment to be sent because of this 'extended wait'. (On his Retainer Agreement, we would have to  pay a 10% fee for late payments. I expect NO LESS.. For ours. It should have never gone this far to begin with.
