This company has not paid over 70% of their process servers. When employees have been paid, most of their paychecks bounce. They handout paychecks when their bank accounts are knowingly in the negative.

The IRS seized their bank accounts, when they switched banks they allowed their employees to continue writing checks to vendors on the closed account for weeks.

They rent office spaces all over California never intending on paying any rent. They have liens from the Internal Revenue Service, the California Board of Equalization, the California State Franchise tax board and the California Employment Development Department. Their process servers are getting audited as this company never reported monies paid to them via a 1099 form.

They intentionally run their client's credit cards multiple times and never reverse the charges when requested. They deposit checks from client's intended for the corporation into their personal accounts.

Because they are not paying their process servers, the process servers are refusing to sign the documentation stating they completed a serve. Therefore, legal documents are being forged and submitted to the courts, hundreds of documents have been forged.

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Of course the owners are responsible. . .

AUTHOR: Concerned consumer - ()

The owners are certainly the responsible parties in the situation.  However Larry jumped ship about a year ago, months prior to the last hold-out employees being left out in the cold.  It's my understanding even he has a judgment against the other two owners and/or the company. 

I believe Dallas is Auston's brother but during the time I worked for ADS I never met him nor did I know of his involvement in the company.

I think we need to focus on the real bad guys.

AUTHOR: Adventures in Process Serving - ()

Michelle and Lani may have known what was going on, but i don't think they made any decisions that hurt the rest of us at ADS. Sure, they may have benefited form being in the inner cirlcle and probably got paid on time, but the culprits here are Doug, Auston and Larry. 

P.s: Who's Dallas? Auston's son or something?

#3 UPDATE EX-employee responds

You make your bed. . .

AUTHOR: Concerned consumer - ()

While employees may not be responsible for the sins of the corporate owners, the employees listed were well aware of the financial situation of the company.  And if you want to talk about feelings (you seem rather emotionally attached to this. .. ),  how would you feel if you took pay cuts, held your pay check for days, sometimes weeks after payday only to still have it bounce when you deposited it, then be fired via email and not receive a final check, not to mention paid time off that was owed to you?  Screw the people who continued to support their own families while they strung employees along knowing that they would never be able to pay them.

The facts I do know

AUTHOR: Illegally Slandered - ()

I do know that Lani Chandler, Michelle Huckaby-Ames and Dallas Cole are not owners, stockholders or own any interest in ADS.  That's where slander comes into play.  This is a website that allows names to be thrown around without any evidence against them.  Would you like it if your name was brought into what's going on with a company that you work for and you had nothing to do with what's being said about you?  And it's been all over the internet?  The person who wrote the initial report knows that those 3 are not involved in whatever is going on with ADS and put their names in out of pure spite... and that is slander.

Limited View. . .

AUTHOR: Concerned consumer - ()

Couldn't see the title of the initial post on my phone screen so I didn't see the names until I saw your post. . .  But. . . if you don't know the entire story, how do you know this is slander?

You state that only the 2 owners were named in the initial post... tell me why there are 6 names showing here.  I am not even arguing about the ligitimacy of the claims against Williams Cole, because I do not know the facts, I'm saying that there are people being named here that have nothing to do with it.

To Illegally Slandered. . .

AUTHOR: Concerned consumer - (United States of America)

The names of the two owners were the only ones named in the initial post.  You were the one who listed the employee names, rather than the owners who were clearly responsible for the illegal activity on this particular post.  You  might want to be careful about that.  And sarcasm comes across as very juvenile in print.  These posts were made by people who were victims of illegal activity by an employer who owes them money.  Your definitions aren't helpful.

AUTHOR: Illegally Slandered - (United States of America)

Well, maybe you should look up "accessory" in the dictionary and post that on here as well.  The "slander" came from the original author, which is where the first response came from.  I, unlike others, do not blame people for things they did not do.

#9 UPDATE EX-employee responds

You're welcome

AUTHOR: also a long-time ex-employee - (United States of America)

That is why I specifically named the two entities, Mr. Cole and Mr. Williams in my first paragraph.  As an ex-employee, I know for a fact that they did those things.  As for the others named, I have no knowledge of their actions.  Only that they were, for the most part, senior employees.  Perhaps they were holding onto certain paychecks for months, being told to not send them out??  Maybe, for instance, certain process servers??  Makes them kind of an accessory, I would think.  Don't know.

Thank you for the Definition

AUTHOR: Illegally Slandered - (United States of America)

I'd like to thank you for the definition of Slander... But naming, Lani Chandler, Michelle Huckaby, Michelle Ames & Dallas Cole as the parties who refuse to pay employees, who authorized checks to be written off of dead accounts, etc., is a malicious and criminal.  As an ex-employee, you should know this.

Truth is stranger than fiction

AUTHOR: also a long-time ex-employee - (United States of America)

Attorneys Diversified, Williams Cole, Inc.,  Auston Cole and Doug Williams are certainly guilty of all of the aforementioned acts.  There are so many abused vendors, current and ex-employees, process servers, State agencies and ex-landlords involved that it could hardly be called slander (a malicious, false or defamatory statement). This is pure, unbelievable fact.  That they could treat their clients and loyal employees this way is despicable.  And to attempt to hide money from the IRS is, I do believe, a crime of itself.

They are attempting to find relief from the numerous Labor Board claims and lawsuits filed against them.  I can only hope that they do not get away with this!  This has been going on for years!!  The loyal employees who stayed were promised compensation when they got on their feet.  All they got was the loss of a job with no reimbursement for previously bounced paychecks and no final paychecks!!!

Some employees have been calling to request replacement checks for previously bounced paychecks, and are being hung up on as soon as they state their name.  The people hanging up on them should also be named, as I know who they are.  But they are mere puppets of those in control, Auston Cole and Doug Williams.

Illegal Slander

AUTHOR: Illegally Slandered - (United States of America)

Whoever wrote this post better have some proof to back up the illegal slander that they've commited.  Yes, we are all entitled to Freedom of Speech, but when you falsly accuse and name individuals fraudulantely, you are commiting a crime.  These posts that are naming individuals who have -0- interest in the company, i.e., Lani Chandler, Michelle Huckaby, Michelle Ames & Dallas Cole, are being monitored and an attorney has been contacted.  It is illegal to slander someone's name.  If you worked for the company, then you know that the afformentioned people are not owners, stock holders, or hold any interest in the company.  They are employees.  They do not sign checks, do not sign rental agreements or even make deposits for the company.
