 Gerald James Owens, once owner of Owens Paralegal Group in Arizona, a failed business man several times over, has fled the state to avoid creditors once again. Returning to New York to hide amongst the masses in Long Island, NY with his wife Ramona and their two children. I employed Mr. Owens to perform legal services in Arizona. He cheated, scammed, and skimmed his way through my company. What I didn't know was that behind closed doors Mr. Owens was secretly doing work for another entity and being paid by my company at the same time.

He gladly took his hefty salary, did a pathetic job, resigned his position, and then before he was discovered fled Arizona and arrived in New York. He promptly filed a false unemployment claim stating that he was fired. He was not, he voluntarily left employment. Cheated his employer and cheated Arizona Unemployment. Stand up guy!!! He is a Catholic and clearly lives by the tenets of Catholicism. It's okay to still and lie... just say a few hail Mary's and it's all good, right? By the way, he isn't even a citizen of the U.S.  He's a closet homosexual from England.

Completely Untrue

AUTHOR: GJO - ()

 Let me begin by stating that the posting this man wrote is a a complete and absolute lie from beginning to end.  This posting was filed by my old employer. This man was terminated from the company we had both worked at. I approached him, gave him money and my services to start a new company. I also helped him bring on a partner on board who invested a substantial amount of money.

My experience with the company deterioated as the Owner was absent for a vast majority of the time. Due to divorce, re-marriage and another divorce he was in Ohio, Arizona and Utah weekly and never at the Firm. It was left to the remaining staff to keep the practice afloat. He had originally agreed to reinvest in the company but ended taking a huge salary for himself that reached $12-14k per month while we did not pay our bills. With my help he took on a partner who he constantly lied to and diverted funds from over the year that I was associated with the Firm. By the end payroll was not being met or late and he spoke often about terminating staff for cheaper people and ensuring that his partner was not paid so that he would go away and find another job. Even the small rent that we recieived from another attorney he pocketed and did not share with his partner. It was clear that he intended to bring his sister and brother on board to replace us all. For him to accuse me of scamming and ripping him off is outrageous. I have never worked so hard in working at a law firm where the senior attorney did not work. An individual who when at the office spent most of his time either trolling the internet for his next wife, dating to find his next wife or working on getting rid of the last wife. An example of this man is as follows: he met a lady from Utah on the internet; he spent most of his time travelling there to see her. Within a month he proposed to her. She had a house, home business and 3 sons. He convinced her to leave and move to Arizona, (she lost her maintenance support due to remarriage) within months of the move he confided in me that he had become disenchanted with her and especially her children who he despised. He informed me that he needed to get rid of her back to Utah and divorce. He moved her back to Utah where she believed that they were having a trial separation. He moved to divorce her immediately. She ended up back in Utah without a house, maintenance from her previous husband and all the inventory from her previous business gone. He was so relieved that it was such a short term marriage that he would have to pay nothing.

While he was an absentee owner it was the staff left behind during that year who provided services to clients and ensured that cases were filed. The failure of the Firm was his responsibility, and then behind his partners back he closed the Firm and opened another one in the same location under another name. He then filed bankruptcy and attempted to remove himself from his debts and his financial obligation to his partner.

For this man to refer to my wife and children, to attack my character and my work ethic is truly sickening. There is not enough space in this response to list the acts of selfishness, deceit, and unkindness that I witnessed this man execute on others, and it is in character that he would malign those who for so long had supported and protected him. I will not even speak to his personal attacks on my religious beliefs, sexuality or my immigration status. I am hiding from no-one and running from nothing. I left Arizona in July 2012, why has it taken him so long to attack me with this nonsense? I assume he has actually found out that I support and have done everything in my power to support his ex-business partner in his bid to hold him accountable in bankruptcy court for his debt to his partner. I am sure that has made him angry, but I would do it again. Does he contact me man to man to discuss this? no. This is a man who I had counted a friend for 7 years, he goes behind my back and posts "modern graffiti" on the internet. Coward.
