In December of 2011, we contacted David J. Willis at LoneStarLandLaw to assist us with writing up legal documents for an owner finance transaction. He quoted us a fee of $550 excluding county clerk's filing fees. We paid him the full amount up front.
He sent us draft documents to review with our buyers. We had issues with the buyers and a few months elapsed. However, we kept in constant communication with David at which time he never mentioned or notified us of a deadline.
On the week of March 5th we communicated with him that we finally had our buyers information together and asked him to make the change to the draft documents. The only thing that was to change on these documents was the buyer name and address. Everything else was to remain the same.
At that time, Mr. Willis began sending us emails that we needed to start the process over. [continued below]....
..... We did not understand what was going on. In an email he said he could not be responsible for documents that were 4 months old. First of all, the documents were not 4 months old and second of all, he had the original draft documents in his possession. Why would anything be at risk?
So my husband proceeded to contact him and ask him what he meant? He then went into some mumbo jumbo explanation about going to a doctors office one time and then going again and wanting the service for free. Then he hung up on my husband because he said my husband was hostile. I was there during that call and my husband was in no way hostile. Trust me, he would have know if he was hostile! Then we tried calling him back because obviously there was a miscommuncation but he would not return our calls our our emails.
After several email attempts I proceeded to let him know that he did not complete our transaction and that he should refund us our money if he was not wanting to continue. If he did not, I told him I would report him to the BBB. He finally proceeded to respond that he owed us nothing, that he did his job and that we gave final approval. That was a total lie!
If we had completed the transaction he should have filed the paperwork with the county and he did not. Timelines were never discussed and we never gave final approval. I asked him to show proof that I gave final approval and he did not responde.
He just didn't want to do the work anymore because he had already received his money. This guy is rude, obnoxius, discourteous, a theif and does not care one bit about his clients. No wonder he does all his business online because he cannot deal with people. Do not use his services. He will find a way to scam you out of your money!
