I went to Mr Lerner with hopes of him working on my case. I spoke to him briefly via the internet and asked him to take my case on after asking him his fees. I paid the total amount and was then sent a contract which had many hidden fees that he failed to mention to me.
I then proceeded to email him my concerns and told him I do not feel comfortable and will like for him to call me before signing his contract.
I never received a call so 2 days later I called and ask to be refunded. I was told by his assistant that I will have to wait until monday so I called back on monday only to get the same response "Mr Lerner is not available and you will have to call back later".
I called back that day and she was not available so I called back on Tues. Again the same response so I decided that I would keep calling until I got on to someone.
It was not until I explained that I was not hanging up that I finally heard from someone who asked me to send an email stating that I wish to have a full refund which i did.
Later that day Mr Lerner emailed me stating that he did alot of work on my case and will not be refunding me the full amount but will be taking $3000 for the work he did.
I took this to my bank as it is illegal to have any work started until a contract was read and signed and therefore my bank ruled in my favor so I was refunded in full
My Lerner out of spite took me to a collecting agency for the full $4275 when he said i owed him $3000 to begin with. This man is a theif
This is just proof that he will do anything to get a buck. First he claimed I owed him $3000 now its the Full amount I initially paid him.
After I told him I was contacting my bank about his dishonesty he threatened me with the little facts he knew about my case.
