Can you trust Herzfeld & Rubin?
Herzfeld & Rubin, P.C. sells themselves as "a full service international law firm, headquartered in New York, focusing on products liability, tort and commercial litigation as well as transactional work."
My father, before he died, retained Herzfeld & Rubin to write up and create a Trust for my children and myself. The purpose of the Trust, as written by Herzfeld & Rubin, was to provide for my "well being", "protection" and to be there in the event of any "emergencies".
Today, I have been separated from my children for over a year and a half as a result of Herzfeld & Rubin fighting against my and my children's best interest and welfare in New York Courts.
Today, I have been evicted from the only home I have as a result of Herzfeld & Rubin fighting against my welfare in New York Courts. My home was totally destroyed.
Today, all of my requests for life saving heart medicine - Plavix - are being ignored by Herzfeld & Rubin.
As I type this complaint my blood is clotting. This clotting will result in heart attack and death.
Today, Herzfeld & Rubin has taken over $80,000 in legal fees from my Trust in preventing me from being with my children, allowing an eviction from my home to take place (my home was totally destroyed), taking the position that I could go to prison for child support payments that I could not make due to underemployment and allowing a heart patient to go without medicine. As for life threatening stress for which three cardiologists have documented, Herzfeld & Rubin is not concerned.
How does Herzfeld & Rubin address these issues?
Rather than provide counsel to my brother who acts as Trustee to find healthy solutions and compromises, they march off to Court where they know they can find blank checks from my Trust to support their lavish meals and vacations.
Rather than negotiate settlements out of court with my attorneys - their method of operation is to intimidate my legal counsel by threatening them with sanctions!
If my father knew that over $80,000 of his hard earned money went to Herzfeld & Rubin to hurt me, separate me from my children, his grandchildren, to have me evicted from my home, ignore requests for heart medicine and rather than protect me and care for my well being as the Trust calls for, he would be writing this consumer complaint.
Herzfeld & Rubin can always try to blame my brother for the decisions that they make. But that holds no water as they could have resigned from representing my brother and my Trust. But then again, if they had resigned, they would not be in a position today to take over $80,000 in legal fees as I and my children suffer.
Ripoff Report is truly not the answer. The solution here is filing complaints against Herzfeld & Rubin with the New York State Bar Association and getting this tragic story out to the New York Times, Daily News, New York Post, AP and Reuters.
Don't allow Herzfeld & Rubin to steal your Trust money and intimidate you and your legal counsel.
