Ballstaedt Law Firm Seth Ballstaedt BALLSTAEDT LAW FIRM CONDUCTING UNETHICAL PRACTICES IN ARIZONA Phoenix, AZ and Las Vegas, NV Nevada
Perhaps you have seen the advertisements for Ballsteadt Law Firm offering to file bankruptcy cases for $693.00. This writer found this to be quite curious and subsequently phoned the firm; a woman named Laurie explained the procedure necessary to file bankruptcy and informed me of an additional fee of $306.00 required by the Court. Additionally, she explained that Seth Ballstaedt would be my attorney, that he is ONLY available by appointment on Fridays only and that a payment plan is available if the entire amount could not be paid outright. Such a payment plan would cost an additional $350.00, over the course of the payments; further research revealed that such a payment plan is ILLEGAL; continued payments after filing for bankruptcy are prohibited by law in the State of Arizona.
This information further roused my curiosity and caused me to investigate further, the results of which were astonishing. Several more phone calls to regulatory agencies in both Arizona and Nevada divulged and affirmed the following:
1) Seth Ballstaedt is NOT licensed to practice law in the State of Arizona.
2) Each and every attorney with Ballstaedt Law Firm are licensed to practice law ONLY in the State of Nevada, and NOT ONE attorney is licensed for more than two years.
3) Aaron Heigi, an attorney with the firm, is NOT licensed to practice in California or Nevada as claimed on the firm’s website.
4) The only attorney licensed to practice law in the State of Arizona, Victoria Quach, has been licensed for less than one year, rendering her with little, if any, experience or success in her field.
Clearly, the Ballstaedt Law Firm is guilty of unethical behaviors and misrepresentation of their abilities and qualifications. The firm proudly boasts that Seth Ballstaedt is one of the top three attorneys in the State of Nevada; a simple phone call affirms that this is a bold-faced lie. Seth Ballstaedt is clearly unprincipled and lacks integrity; he boldly disregards clear principles of behavior established by the State of Arizona regulating the collection of fees after a bankruptcy case is filed. This firm guilty of prevarication of the facts with regard to experience, services, qualifications, track record, and Victoria Quach is willfully abetting the unauthorized practice of law within the State of Arizona.
It is clear that this Nevada law firm is engaging in predatory practices in Arizona and this problem seems to be becoming more far-reaching and widespread. It is clear that one must do their own due-diligence and research before engaging the services of The Ballstaedt Law firm or any firm to be certain that their claims are true and that they are operating in a forthright and integrous manner.
Anyone who has been wronged by this firm or needs or wants to make a complaint can call the Arizona State Bar Association at 602.252.4804.
