re: Attoney Rahul Manchanda of Manchanda Law Offices in NY on 80 Wall Street.  

AN ATTORNEY IN NY ON WALL STREET NAMED RAHUL MANCHANDA TOOK $5000.00 FROM ME UNDER FALSE PRETENSES. HE TOLD ME THAT HE CAN HELP ME, BUT LATER HIS FIRM SENT AN INTER-OFFICE MEMO AND CIRCULATED IT TO HIS STAFF STATING THAT THEY COULD NOT HELP ME WITH MY LEGAL PROBLEMS. AFTER I CONSULTED WITH THEM, I TOLD THEM TO WAIT UNTIL I TRANSFER MY MONEY TO ANOTHER ACCOUNT, RATHER THAN WAIT, THEY QUICKLY CASHED MY CHECK JUST IN CASE I CHANGED MY MIND AND THIS CAUSED ME TO INCUR A BANK FEE FOR NON SUFFICIENT FUNDS.

I TOOK RAHUL MANCHANDA TO COURT AND TWO OF HIS LAWYERS LEFT HIM IN THE PROCESS. HE THEN HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO HIRE HIS OWN STAFF TO DEFEND HIM. HE HAD ME SIGN A RETAINER AGREEMENT UNDER FALSE PRETENSES, SINCE THE LAWYERS THAT I INITIALLY CONSULTED WITH PROVIDED ME WITH MISLEADING LEGAL ADVICE TO INDUCE ME TO SIGN A RETAINER AGREEMENT. I SIGNED THE RETAINER AGREEMENT UNDER DURESS AND WITHOUT INFORMED CONSENT. THE LAWYERS THAT I RECEIVED ADVIcE FROM AT MANCHANDA LAW FIRM, WERE NOT EVEN LICENSED BY NJ BAR, FOR THE NJ MATTER THAT I HIRED THEM FOR. I HAVE BEEN FIGHTING MANCHANDA BY MYSELF IN NY CIVIL COURT WITHOUT SUCCESS, BECAUSE HE KEEPS FILING FRIVOLOUS PLEADINGS TO DELAY TRIAL, FOR THE LAST TWO YEARS.

If HE ISSUES ME A  FULL REFUND, I WILL REMOVE AND AMEND THIS AD.


IF ANYONE KNOWS OF A PRO BONO ATTORNEY in NY THAT CAN REPRESENT ME IN NY CIVIL COURT against Rahul Manchanda and the Manchanda Law firm to help me get my $5000.00 back, FEEL FREE TO EMAIL ME AT (((email redacted)))

BEST ATTORNEY MUST BE EARNED

AUTHOR: Fairtreatment - (U.S.A.)

HEY DAN,

I did file a complaint with the First Department Disciplinary Committee.

It is amazing how NY Bar Association has not caught on to Rahul Manchanda's pattern of unethical law practices and it is even more amazing that this attorney is still in active practice and not in jail. This guy is giving a bad name to the Ivy league schools that he allegedly attended, in my opinion.

Always the Same Story with Manchanda!

AUTHOR: Dan fl - (U.S.A.)

 

It is always disheartening to click on Rip off Report.com and see more of the same filings about how Rahul Manchanda has stolen more innocent peoples hard earned money.  It is always the same old story, they give him a $5000 retainer and he does nothing for them.  He makes false bills not and steals their money.  Those are his real credentials, MASTER THEIF AND LIAR!

  I believe that if someone actually subpoenaed his records they could easily prove that he falsified the same hours on the same days to many poor people.

The rebuttals on this site are always the same, as if written by the Czar himself, Manchanda is the Best!   Yes he is the Best!

  He is the best scumbag rip off lawyer in New York, maybe country wide.

The exact same thing happened to me, he stole my money!  He falsified bills just so he could keep the entire retainer.

 I took him to the Joint Committee on Fee Disputes and Conciliation, who after arbitration ruled in my favor.  Their address is: 14 Vesey Street, NY, NY 10007 Phone 212-267-6646 ext 207 Fax is 212-406-9252.

Of course after the ruling Manchanda decided that they were wrong and that he was not going to follow their orders or return the money that he stole from me. The moron actually hired a collection attorney to try and collect the money that the court awarded to me! 

But dont let that stop you, file complaints!     They have to look into them and they will help!

  If your retainer agreement was signed under false pretenses you could have an ethics claim with the Dept. Disciplinary Committee, Supreme Court, Appellate Division, First Judicial Dept, 61 Broadway, NY, NY 10006 . Phone 212-401-0800 fax 212-401-0810.

 

Please people, file your complaints.  You dont need a lawyer to file them!

 I think we should get together and start a website where all of the Manchanda Victims can unite.  Power is in the numbers. Then we can each put some money in, hire a real attorney and finally get rid of this guy.  He must have malpractice insurance that we could collect on!

GIVE ME MY FULL REFUND RAHUL MANCHANDA

AUTHOR: Fairtreatment - (U.S.A.)

I personally found in my opinion, the Manchanda law firm as a law firm that preys on unsuspecting clients, such as myself at the time in March 2008. I am not impressed by his credentials. Credentials do not conceal the truth about how he really treats his clients. If he was so good, he would not have more unfavorable complaints lodged against him on ripoffreport.com than favorable complaints. He tried to sue Ripoffreport.com in District Court before a Federal judge because ripoffreport provided a medium for his consumers to file complaints against the Manchanda firm, for uncovering the truth of their experiences with the Manchanda law firm, but he lost. This should serve as a message to proceed with caution and at your own risk with this firm, based on my own unfavorable experience with this firm. He took $5200.00 from me under false pretenses.
 Rahul Manchanda had a duty to send me a $2800.00 refund, but instead he created a second fraudulent billing invoice statement and created some additional charges and billed me for them, rather than return to me the refund that I was due from the original billing invoice. Rather than one copy of a billing invoice, I was sent two billing invoices, which his third attorney try to say it was a continuation of the original billing invoice, I have evidence to prove that this was not the case. None of his two other attorneys raised this explanation prior to the third Attorney. It was not believable or credible for the third attorney that works at the Manchanda law firm, to make this wild contention. He has not explained why I have two different retainer agreements, one that I signed and dated under duress and with lack of informed consent without an attorneys signature and the retainer agreement that he sent me a year later that was signed and dated after the fact, by an Attorney that they fail to disclose???
