Eccleston Law firm and James Eccleston in particular use the lowest kind of tactics to get clients. They use the internet to post lies and innuendo about good companies so their customers will call him to see what's wrong. When you call them they try to pry personal and confidential information out of you for who knows what purpose, then they want you to pay a fee of $1,500 plus any future travel costs. I've watched this company operate and I'm amazed he hasn't been shut down by the Illinois Attorney General's office yet. The American Bar Association needs to investigate the legalities of his company's unethical and dishonest methods. If you see one of his "come ons" to get you to call his office over some falsified accusation about a company you know, run as fast as you can the other way. His company treats clients like nothing more than a meal ticket. There are honest lawyers that operate with integrity available to help you, you just won't find them at Eccleston Law Offices.

#2 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Eccleston Law Offices, P.C. Adheres to Highest Ethical Standards

AUTHOR: James Eccleston - (United States of America)

It seems that one of our blog posts has struck a nerve with the author of this post, a Hank V. (with whom we dont recall speaking and strongly suspect has never been a client or prospective client who spoke with us). For the sake of transparency, we request that this anonymous complainant reveal his real name and background.

The accusation that James Eccleston or Eccleston Law Offices, P.C. is engaged in false advertising, fear mongering, and false information is patently false.

There has been no false advertising, fear mongering, or any other false information disseminated by James Eccleston or any of the staff at Eccleston Law Offices, P.C.  To the contrary, the firm takes great care to make sure that any information disseminated by our firm is accurate.  The firm also fully complies with all applicable attorney advertising regulations.

The firm does not post (and has not posted) any lies, half-truths, or innuendo about any of the targets of our investigations or potential defendants (many of whom also have been targeted by securities regulators for violating securities laws or self-regulatory organization rules).  The firm takes pride in the manner in which we interface with our prospective and actual clients. 

Unfortunately, some of the information that the firm shares on its blog and elsewhere does not sit well with the targets of our investigations and the entities whom we have named as defendants in lawsuits.  Often, the truth is unpleasant for these people.  However, to be clear, we never spread false information for the sake of generating clients. 

It is true that we need to ask certain questions to prospective clients to determine whether or not they have a viable case.  We protect and keep confidential all information provided by clients and also by prospective clients.  Although the terms and scope of our representation varies from case-to-case (and always is memorialized in a written engagement letter), we do in some cases ask the investor to bear certain costs and expense, such as filing fees.  This practice is common among law firms, and is not unreasonable or unusual. 

Our attorneys adhere to nothing but the highest ethical standards, including honesty and integrity.  In fact, numerous independent attorney rating agencies have evaluated the firm and its attorneys and have given them their highest ratings.  For example, the prestigious Martindale-Hubble has bestowed upon James Eccleston the coveted AV Peer Review Rating (which is the highest possible rating for both integrity and ethics). James Eccleston has been named an Illinois Super Lawyer every year since its inception in 2005. Therefore, any suggestion the firm or its attorneys engage in dishonest or unethical practices is an unfortunate attempt to (unfairly) tarnish the firms reputation.
