Mr. Bettencourt was retained by our family for a simple legal matter.
Mr. Bettencourt manipulated specific line items related to the transaction he was retained to represent in our best interest when Mr. Bettencourt noted that his fees were not likely to be covered in the normal course of the transaction due to what appeared to be a shortfall of funds in what could only be described as a challenged transaction.
When questioned specifically about the line items during the execution of the legal documents specific to the transaction Mr. Bettencourt chose to scapegoat the attorney acting for the other party which later proved to be false.
Mr. Bettencourt coerced us to execute our acceptance of the terms, stating that we would likely be sued by the other party if we refused to do so in a timely fashion. [continued below]....
What makes this such a violation of trust and ethics is when questioned about specific details leading up to the closing of the deal, Mr. Bettencourt became cross and stated that he had no time for such minutia, essentially dismissing our concerns as trivial and not deserving of his time or effort.
His petulant behavior persisted when challenged post closing as he became evasively abrupt and terminated the conversation.
Despite several attempts to correct the disparity related to our transaction Mr. Bettencourt has closed our file dismissing us and our losses.
He has hurt our family tremendously and has demonstrated NO REMORSE for his actions despite his informed knowledge of how greatly this has affected our family.
It was shortly after determined that there was indeed no shortfall related to the transaction and that Mr. Bettencourt had miscalculated items already accounted for by the other party, adding incompetence to his character profile.
Mr. Bettencourt has made no effort to correct these matters despite several requests to do so by all parties involved.
He presents as a professional but is anything but. Mr. Bettencourt cannot be trusted and should be
held up for examination by his peers for this gross misconduct and breach of his responsibility to his clients.
Be extremely cautious when dealing with Mr. Bettencourt as he clearly only cares about the color that lines his pockets.
While I am certain that this matter will never be righted, I am hopeful that this post will serve as a warning to others when given the opportunity to chose whether or not to do business with Mr. Christopher J. Bettencourt or his firm as they clearly do not stand for what is just.
