I made one of the biggest mistakes of my life, by hiring Palmer and Associates (bill palmer) to handle 2 of my personal injury cases.
First, he did nothing in way of a settlement without my help. I had to resort to emails, because he would not answer my phone calls.
Second, his staff i.e, paralegals? were incompetent. They did not even know how to contact the us bankruptcy court (defendants both filed chapter 7) They told me I was going to trial, and the had already motion the court for a stay (to continue) then, they stopped taking my calls.
Third, Palmer did not know how to negotiate a medical lien with rawlings. I had to help him. Just liked I helped his office staff with the BK discharges of the defendants.
Fourth, He will take all of your settlement, if he could.
Fifth, We settled one, with my help and he billed me for all the costs. In other words, he commingled the costs of the first and second accidents and charged me. Then he said, he would continue to do so.
I fired him. HE would not withdraw as council. I had to file a motion with the court to have him removed.
He then files a lien of 40% and costs, against the remaining case and my insurance.
I settled with my insurance and the arbitrator award palmer $6,000. He never spoke with my insurance or did any work. SO, how to he manage to rob me of $6,000. The arbitrator is his friend, Mr James Jackson, that is how...Where in america can you get paid without doing any work? If your a lawyer in Las Vegas and have friends that are arbitrator's.
The arbitrator should have recused himself. THe first words he said, " Bill and I have been friends for over 26 years, but I will be fair" Fair to who?
Let me ask, what other profession and rob you, and get away with it?
All I can say, "IS BUYER BEWARE" The old boy system is still alive and kicking in las vegas.
Quoted by someone who wants to remain annonymous "THEY ARE THIEVES WITH PENCILS AND A SMILE" BUY THERE NO DIFFERENT THAN SOMEONE STICKING YOU UP WITH A GUN. THEY JUST DO IT LEGALLY.
YOU CAN VIEW MY RECORDS ON THE DISTRICT COURT PAGE..JUST TYPE IN PALMERS NAME AND YOU WILL SEE ALL THE LAWSUITS AGAINST HIM...ALSO, THE PROBLEMS HE IS HAVING WITH HIS OFFICE BLDG.
Oh, by the way...he was a referral from church! lol
