Roni Lynn Deutch claims to settle back tax liabilities for "Pennies on the dollar" utilizing the I.R.S. program Offer in Compromise.
Roni Lynn Deutch advertises nationally on television urging desperate taxpayers to call for a free no obligation consultation. When the scared taxpayer calls, they reach a call center where their name, phone number and amount owed to the I.R.S. is recorded. Then the "Leads" are filtered through and placed on a 3x5 card and passed out to hungry sales representatives affectionately known as "Tax Directors" AKA. SALESPEOPLE!
These salespeople are under constant pressure from Roni Deutchs' little brother Russell Deutch to hit their individual sales goals. The pressure is so heavy that we have actually seen salespeople fudge the numbers of the callers to "qualify the potential client" then use proven sales techniques to have them pay sometimes as much as $15,000.00 to take the case. Typically the fee is between $1900.00 and $4300.00 to hire the firm to protect them from the I.R.S.
The sales people paint a picture for the potential clients, telling them the typical time frame to settle the tax debt is from ten to twelve months, giving the clients a ray of hope. The new clients are not told that the law firm has so many active clients (well over 4,000) that it could be seven or eight months before they even compile the Offer in compromise. Meanwhile, the clients are literally struggling to make payments to the law firm ranging from $250.00 to $1,000.00 for six to ten months.
The average enrollment in the Law firm is 450 new clients each month. In our years of working there we have not seen a fraction of these clients receiving the help that was implied. Remember, attorneys structure sentences that imply one thing to the average person and something completely different in legal terminology and the salespeople are taught to use this verbiage with clients to imply a guarantee.
We know of several other people who will be adding information to this site. Many of our co-workers have been terminated for looking into the practices of the Law firm and questioning why we were taking new clients when we could not even provide the service to the existing clients.
Roni Lynn Deutch is taking the hard earned money hand over fist from people who are desperate for help, and really only delivering help to a very small portion of her clients.
Here are some examples:
A client was getting his wages garnished. He had been faithfully paying the firm $475.00 monthly to cover his legal fees for seven months, the law firm never even attempted to get his garnishment lifted (he was lost in the shuffle). The man could not make his last payment on time (eight months later and before the garnishment was even lifted) and the law firm fired him for breaching the law firm's so called " FEE AGREEMENT".
The legal staff regularly loses files, misses I.R.S. deadlines, mails the wrong documents to clients, disclosing confidential information. The list goes on.......thousands of mislead people.
Roni Deutch owns at least nine homes throughout the country, drives a $100,000.00 BMW and a $100,000.00 Porsche. Travels and plays constantly and is rarely in the office. She has approximately 100 people running her show. Believe me, it is a show. She runs the epitome of a processing plant. Clients accuse us all the time of being a sweatshop. People need to know this before they pay a woman to save them when she is literally taking their money. They have several thousand unhappy clients that will gladly tell their story.
All employess are forced to sign a clause that I would not discuss the practice of the Law firm or they can sue me for damages caused to the law firm.
The contact person who runs the show for Roni Deutch is:
Greg Flahive Ask him what percentages of clients actually get the service they hired Roni Deutch to do for them.
I urge you to call in as a potential client and go through the process; you will be amazed at how their system works.
