Manchanda has many postings against him on this site; most of them have the same complaint, people have been overcharged, incorrectly or fraudently billed, misrepresented, and lied to. It is attorneys like this that give others a bad name. Everyone that has filed here has done so for one reason, to stop the same thing from happening to someone else. You feel that it is your duty to make a statement that can help protect others from predators like this.
It is your duty to do that. You can do that and more. You may even be able to get some of your hard earned money back, or better yet to put this guy where he belongs; out of business, behind bars, or back working at a burger joint making french frys and wondering how he is going to pay his mortgage without stealing like the rest of us are.
I filed a complaint against Manchanda with the Joint Comittee on Fee Disputes, and I won my case. I did not hire a lawyer, it was quite easy to do. They are nice people that are there to help you, they want to rid the system of operators like this that give all lawyers a bad name.
In my case Manchanda was directed to return over 1/3 of my retainer, plus drop the legal fees of $2700 that he charged for his defense of my complaint. Manchanda's lawyer said before we started that the defense charges were billed in error, even though they were billed for 8 months with Manchanda attempting to put them in my credit report.The court procedure was completed in 2 hours with my participation on the telephone from my house.
Please for all of us, file a complaint where it matters. File a complaint with the: Joint Committee On Fee Disputes and Reconciliation, 14 Vesey Street, NY, NY 10007 Ph. 212-267-6646, ext 207, Fax 212-406-9252
As well as: NYS Bar Deptartment Disciplinary Committee, Supreme Court, Appellate Division, First Judicial Department, 61 Broadway, NY, NY 10006. Phone 212-401-0800, fax 212-401-0810
They will help you. They will also get very tired of hearing the name "Rahul Manchanda" and company.
I also plan to set up a website in the near future so everyone can get together and go after this guy as one. Keep checking this site for more information.
