Henry C. Paine PC Shyster, Liar, Lazy, Disingenuous, Circumvents the law Denton Texas
Hank Paine charged a fee up front ($5500) to represent a first time credit card abuse case for a 20 year old and then failed to deliver any representation at all. His wife worked in the bail bondsman's office, which is probably illegal, and through that front he got our case. We are not minorities or indigent, but he bilked us. He never filed for the evidence but did threaten to have our son sent to jail. Once we knew he had not done anything (we got a stock letter about a hearing that was not actually scheduled and he was quick to blame his legal assistant for the 'mishap' and after we hired another attorney we were told Hank Paine never even filed to review the evidence)
yet we knew he already decided our son was guilty and planned no defense, we told him we planned to seek other legal representation. He told us there would be no refund and then threatened us that he would get any deal with the DA withdrawn. His threats that without him our son would do hard time for his first offense scared us. It was our first experience with legal issues and we only found out later that his promises were worse than the standard outcome so he had nothing to lose to promise the worst and threaten we would do worse that the standard outcome if we sought other council. This man is dishonest and lazy. How could someone take $5500 and not even file for the evidence after more than 4 months?
How could someone threaten a mother than her son, who had no criminal record, would go to jail for 5 to 10 years for a non violent use of a credit card that was <$55 when the video was of a friend using the credit card? How could a lawyer get clients via his wife working in a bail bondsman's office? Even asking repeatedly to get some refund, he refused. Basically he did absolutely NOTHING but lie and still got the money. He is absolutely a SHYSTER! Now he is in bankruptsy because his character flaws include gambling. I think he should be disbarred and charged with offenses that relate to bilking the vulnerable public, using a bailbondsan's office to solicit clients, and threatening families. He is not fit to be an attorney.
If you need an attorney - an online resource would be 100% better than Henry C. Paine. He is not deserving of the title of attorney.
