Edward de Valle, the chief executive of AMGW Agency is being sued by five female former employees in a lurid lawsuit alleging abusive behavior and financial misconduct.

Ben Alvarez of Alvarez Almazan & Rodriguez in Coral Gables, Fl., filed the first suit in Miami-Dade Circuit Court in November on behalf of Adriana Salazar, Yanery De Leon, Monica Jordan, Janina Goenaga and Elizabeth Angueira.

The complaint also alleges intentional infliction of emotional distress, invasion of privacy and false imprisonment.

De Valle refused to pay overtime to Goenaga, Angueira and Jordan, who regularly worked at least 50 hours a week as assistants in the office, the women's suit claims.

The suit also contends De Valle owes more than $200,000 in commissions to
former account executives De Leon and Salazar
, who worked for De Valle from
2004 through early 2006. [continued below]....

.....

The complaint claims De Valle created a hostile work environment by insulting and threatening employees and with temper tantrums.

Edward De Valle screamed at Salazar and De Leon during an argument over commissions, the complaint said. In fits of anger:

Edward started to throwing the phones, staplers, scissors and other office supplies across the room while screaming

-You b*ches are making too much of my money!!!

The employees also say De Valle's tight-fisted expense policy on business trips resulted in bizarrely uncomfortable situations.

De Leon said she was forced to share a one-bed hotel room with De Valle. In one instance on a trip to Los Angeles, according to the suit:

"De Leon slept on the floor while Edward De Valle engaged in a bizarre and gross intercourse."


Edward de Valle
Will you put your precious business in hands of promiscuous people with no moral principles?

Jordan said she was forced to share a hotel room with a male co-worker when De Valle refused to pay for an extra room, according to court papers.
Damian filed a motion asking U.S. District Judge Marcia Cooke to dismiss the claim of intentional infliction of emotional distress.

She challenged the other counts as well, saying the women who claimed they were forced to share hotel rooms with men were free to leave at any time.

"This man's behavior was incorrigible and inexcusable," Alvarez said in an interview.

Salazar and De Leon met with De Valle more than once to talk about the way he treated his staff, but their concerns were met with anger or indifference, Alvarez said.

AMG's Web site describes the company as "a fully integrated media and marketing agency servicing the top developers, hoteliers and luxury brand companies from around the globe."

More than 100 real estate clients were listed but only 3 were real.

Edward De Valle II Great Man

AUTHOR: Silvia Mancini - ()

I dont know Mr. Edward De Valle, but I know a lot about him. He is a business celebrity in Miami and a man who has helped a lot of people. Specially women. I know if him becuase he has attended a women empowerment summit to help create a better work place for women. What CEO does this? He is awesome! When I heard him speak I was like "wish my law firm partners cared about Women the way he does".

I personally took the time to check into this as I was concerned when I read this. I am a laywer working in the Brickell Area, so pulling some strings I can check these things out. Its all all lie!

 

Mr De Valle was actually PAID money from these girls who lied and were bascially almost arrested for stealing corporate information from his former company. The amount Edward was paid has remained is un-disclosed, but I can tell you that Mr. De Valle won this case back in 2007 fair and sqaure. The ladies who have recently been engaged in other illegal acitvities have been the subject of continued conterversy in the city of Miami. Stay away from these ladies and do not hire them. Its been a long time since I have read such junk like what these ladies tried to pull off. 

Miami wants people like Edward and needs none of what these ladies bring the city.

Edward de Valle / An Amazing Man - This Report is a Lie

AUTHOR: Cynthia Gomez - ()

Lies, Lies, Lies!

Whomever wrote this report has no idea what they are speaking about. Its sad to see that people attack people like Mr. de Valle II who from what most people know is the most generous person to be around. 

 

Only becuase I have the proof and I am Ok if you contact me, I can tell you how much BULL this is. Mr. de Valle II sued these ladies for stealing information back in 2006. The case was settled in Mr. de Valle II FAVOR in early 2007. In response to this lawsuit filed by Mr. de Valle II the ladies joined forces to FABRICATE a story which would later prove to be financially beneficial for Mr. de Valle II. 

 

The point. The ladies were forced to pay Mr. de Valle II an undisclosed amount of money for the defamation for which they FABRICATED. The judge was so angry that the ladies not only waisted US tax payers money,but also by the fact that it was so easy for their lawyer to pull something off like this. The lawyer also got hit with some fines for not following all of the proper court regulations. 

 

At the end what I can say is that I hope you ladies (remember I am a lady too) that you have moved on and gone your merry way. Mr. de Valle II has never published anywhere that he WON this case and that you all paid him money. Its a fact! Its a public record! Anyone can find out you lost! Please have some respect for the people in Miami who actually do soemthing to make our business world expand with positive influences like Mr. de Valle II.

 

Finally if you would have donated just 1% of the money Mr. de Valle II has to help promote the education of underprivalged women you would have thought long and hard before making this up. 

 

Peace, love and happiness ladies... Karma is a bitch!

#3 UPDATE EX-employee responds

UNTRUTHFUL ARTICLE

AUTHOR: f - ()

As an X employee of the company, non of these allegations were true. The girls lied and was proven in court as demonstrated from court transcripts and Mr. De Valle won the suit.  The girls were charged. Mr. De Valle was always very respectful and never did such a thing. The girls stoled files fromn the office as was proven by a forensic computer examiner and made stories not tobe charged wit the crime.

WELL....

AUTHOR: krystal meth - (United States of America)

Well, technically they put themselves in the awkward hotel situation...they could have left at any time.

If there were commissions being withheld, then that is something that needs to disputed in a courtroom, not on a website where ANYONE can post. Nothing can really be done by posting here.

You should be a little bit more proactive.
