Anyone who says Rahul Manchanda is an ethical Lawyer is either paid by him or it is himself, writing that post.

This lawyer will promise you the moon when he doesn't know how that it takes a rocket to reach there. And why not, you have earned money all your life so you can transfer all your money into his account! It doesnt matter what your problem is, he will have a solution for you. Divorce, Immigration, Cancer, Aids -- Manchanda Law Offices has a solution for all.

It doesnt matter if he has never done one divorce case in life. He will use you as a guinea pig to learn as you go! In my divorce case, the one time he was supposed to show up in court, he missed! He wouldn't pick up his cell phone, neither his land line... If you are late in paying his HUGE bills (which will be in thousands every month), you will get 100 calls a day. My ex's attorney ate him (and me) for lunch during the divorce process. I got nothing; she got everything! He had claimed he will get her deported, that he will get her behind bars for illegaly marrying me for green card.. but he soon forgot that all those promises were before I signed the retainer. No one in his staff had handled a divorce case before.

After spending 20k on this lawyer (not counting the money I had to give to my ex to get rid of her), I was left with a sour taste in my mouth for the whole litigation industry. I hope there are better attorneys around and that people GOOGLE before going to his office.

My advice to anyone in distress -- STAY AWAY from this man and his incompetent staff.

Long Island, New York

#1 Consumer Comment

Mr Benjamin, aka Mr Manchanda

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

This last post is not by Mr Benjamin. I know the language that Mr Manchanda uses. This is obviously him marketing himself as an immigration "specialist". Its a good joke, but only he can laugh at such a pathetic attempt to repair the damage he has done by mistreating his clients.

Mr Manchanda is the biggest scumbag I have met in my entire life as an adult, period. It would be hard for any lawyer to beat what this guy has done to us.

Recently, I served as a jury on an immigration-related jury-duty (federal). I saw some very competent lawyers from both sides - the government and the client. It opened the wounds again and reminded me how pathetic/clueless/incompetent Mr Manchanda was in the way he went about my case.

Fine, he can do H1-B visas, but those even a layman can do. Those cases do not require the finest brains and definitely not at the pricetag that he puts on such cases.

#3 Consumer Suggestion

Look into fee arbitration

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

Your state's bar associaton likely has a fee arbitration program. I would recommend loking into it and taking advantage of it if there is one. Lawyers are bound by an ethical duty that their fees be reasonable.

There are a number of factors that go into determining whether a given fee is reasonable and, from your report, it looks like a few of them are in your favor (i.e. the attorney's level of experience in the given field, the amount of work involved, the fee customarily charged for similar services, etc.).

Another option would be to hire another lawyer and go for a legal malpractice suit.

Best regards!
