Scott Wellman was a horrible disappointment for our company, and we want to warn other businesses and consumers about Scott and how he practices law.
Scott Wellman took on several litigation and transactional matters for our small business. It is a business that had taken off in the recent 2 years despite poor economy, after my business partners and I poured most of our savings into a project we believed in. Scott Wellman failed us after putting himself in a position of trust as our lawyer. It looks like we were not his first victims. Wellman & Warren lawyers failed to:
1. communicate about the legal work they were performing;
2. communicate settlement offer;
3. explain their billing practices;
4. provide us with options or any type of strategy.
Having Scott Wellman serve as our lawyer was the worst experience we have ever had in business. [continued below]....
..... In fact, Wellman & Warren LLP almost destroyed our business and our lives. We know that the Internet is not the most reliable source for references, but we urge potential clients to think carefully and do their own due diligence before they let Scott Wellman sweet-talk them into hiring his firm. This could be a decision that you could regret forthe rest of your life. Associates that work for Scott, such as Bimali Walgampaya, Cathy Zotti, and Anabella Bonfa are "nice", and generally polite, but are utterly incompetent. They have no business or litigation experience, and act as glorified secretaries for Scott. I believe that they are paid accordingly - less than contract lawyers.
If you read this, you are trying to do some diligence on Scott Wellman, and his firm. All we can do is warn you, and share our horrible experience with a person we consider to be an unethical lawyer, and a disgraceful person - Scott W. Wellman
