Gregory V. Redlitz Greg Redlitz of Gregory V. Redlitz PLC is associated with The Robert Thorne Company. Gregory V. Redlitz PLC and Robert Thorne are shyster attorneys and con artists. Beware of what they say, they are deceptive and not honest. Beverly Hills California
Gregory V. Redlitz PLC and Robert Thorne are shysters and con artists who roped me into loosing well over one year of my life to work for them without payment! They promised me 40K in the first year and residual income that would allow me a comfortable retirement in licensing Melissa McCarthy, Wendy Williams, Snooki, and many other celebrities who in fact they did not actually represent. They knowingly and maliciously with an unethical moral obligation coerced me into believing I would earn a living using my 30 years as a world class sales and marketing executive to bring them a whole new cast of characters that they can use as they have done over and over for the past 30 years burning every bridge they cross. From September 2012 till November 2013 of what I believed was an amazing opportunity in which I delivered to Robert Thorne and Greg Redlitz a wig deal for Wendy Williams, an apparel deal for Snooki and Melissa McCarthy, The entire cast for them to manage and license from a hit TV Show, a licensing deal for Mercedes Javid form Shas of Sunset, I find my, depressed and disillusioned at 59 years old not knowing what I will know do with my life as I search to reinvent myself and find work after spending a year and a half on an emotional passionate ride believing I would earn an amazing income licensing famous celebrities. Gregory V. Redlitz and Robert Thorne are intent on not paying me one dime of the signed contract I have with them. They know I can not retain an attorney to sue them which would cost between 20 and 30 thousand dollars as these two attorney’s laugh when someone sues them and have warned me that if I do sue them I will not win.
The Robert Thorne Company and Gregory V. Redlitz, both attorneys, practicing in California use deceptive, business practices. As an insider who worked countless hours meeting unreasonable demands by Robert Thorne, not only did I believe and trust and love the celebrities I was seeking licensing deals for, I was scripted with what I later found out were untrue statements that in fact: scammed manufacturers and resulted in large sums of money exchanging hands, (6 figure advances) offering “celebrity” licensing deals.
It is a con and it goes like this:
I was scripted by Robert Thorne and Gregory Von Redlitz to convince potential licensees for there celebrity clients into believing that they would make millions of dollars with state of the art licensing techniques from the creators of The Mary Kate and Ashley billion dollar a year is sales at Wal-Mart licensing Empire. Robert Thorne and Gregory V. Redlitz willingly and knowingly asked me to lie to potential licensees that they currently represent The Vatican (not true) and re-churning over and over how they were the architects for The Olsen Twins Billion Dollar Empire, “that’s a billion with a B Robert would always interject” at Wal-Mart (not true Beanstalk were the licensing agents) to suck in other licensees, celebrities, manufacturers and retailers by promising state of the art licensing, promising that they will drive retail foot traffic to retail programs, and using fast talking, slick, legal language that intimidates potential licensees, and clients on promises that they do not and can not deliver upon. In Fact, it would always be a wait on conference calls for Robert Thorne who instructed me on how it is important to make my clients wait for him creating the illusion that he was a miracle worker who would guide expand their business, creating millions of dollars in revenue with state of the art licensing. I can not count the times that Robert Thorne belittled every opportunity I brought. One example with a Texas manufacturer I introduced, “Why are you introducing me to these hillbillies, wasting my time”, the he ended up becoming best friends with them and tried really hard to rope them into becoming the apparel manufacturer licensee for a client that nobody wants.
In fact: on top of the multiple six figure advances from licensees, they ad on exuberant fees for travel,(they make numerous meeting with other business on that clients expense account) marketing, public relations, faxes, phone calls, office help, and not dispersing the funds that were commissioned and contractually entitled to independent contactors signed to The Robert Thorne Company as Senior Consultant who "found the deals".
Robert Thorne and Gregory V. Redlitz do not follow through on commitments and promises made to there workers, clients, retailers, manufacturers, celebrity clients, and licensees. One deal I brought to them netted hundreds of thousands in advance money and when it came time to really work the deal to retail and to deliver on promised celebrities for a trade show, they bailed. They left everyone holding the bag. They disappeared and subsequently, the brand owner and the licensee (manufacturer) as well as I were devastated with no direction. Not one promise fulfilled by the fast talking Thorne and Redlitz.
As an insider for the company, the celebrities that they sign who are not high profile must know the truth, that everyday that goes buy with the Robert Thorne Company, is a day wasted for their career. The Robert Thorne Company does nothing for most of their clients, and does not have the contacts nor the knowledge on what to do, nor do they deliver on what they promise. They depend 100% on the advice of others, in my case Robert Thorne spent countless hours on the phone to get me to help him find the answers for many business decisions he did not have an answer for. I worked countless hours without any compensation. Robert Thorne and Gregory V. Redlitz use others to get business while pocketing all the advance monies that they receive as a 25% commission and charge on top for fees that are not relevant to the clients without paying others who did the work in finding the deals and helping them close. They have not paid this Senior Consultant who brought to The Robert Thorne Company while under contract, licensing deals for Snooki, Wendy Williams, Melissa McCarthy, Marlen Esparza, Taylor Armstrong, and Mercedes MJ Javid. This Senior Consultant also introduced to The Robert Thorne Company to the entire cast of Welcome to Myrtle Manor who the cast signed on as "manager". The Senior Consultant is entitled to his percentage of whatever The Robert Thorne Company receives and has not been paid to date one penny.
The Robert Thorne Company was served by an attorney retained by The Senior Consultant and Robert Thorne chose to ignore the request to pay what is owed currently and commit to pay what will be owed in the future for the life of the licensing agreements. They scammed, lied, and deceived abused, belittled, conned The Senior Consultant into believing he would earn a living. They blatantly stole money owed. The contact states, “When its earned its earned, for the life of the agreements entered into by the introductions leading to licensing deals and endorsements. Thorne and Von Redlitz purposely and with malaise intent stopped communicating and did not pay The Senior Consultant when they received advance monies, marketing monies and royalty payments for the licensing and or endorsement deals made by the Senior Consultant contacts.
Robert Thorne is verbally abusive to employees and his clients. Greg Redlitz, advised this senior consultant to think about taking drugs to deal with Roberts tirades and abuse. Greg explained how the drugs he takes daily keeps him level and nothing bothers him. Greg speaks in this drone tone as he appears emotionless and Robert Thorne is a disheveled, eccentric, rude, egotistical, tyrant who daily and through the evening, way past business hours, verbally abuses his staff and prays on innocent hard working people and young talent by hiring interns so as to not pay them for there hard work and who must succumb to an abusive work environment. Robert Thorne well into his 60’s recently married a 28 year old girl from Medellin-Colombia and spent weeks ignoring business while he worked his pre-nuptial agreement! This is all the truth. There is no slander in truth! The truth must be known as these two attorneys have been hiding behind walls for decades. Gregory V. Redlitz does not even have his own office or land line for business. The Robert Thorne Company address front is a rented cubicle in Beverly Hills and Robert takes meeting in his dark home. Gregory is miserable with the 17% of The Robert Thorne Companies income. He was miserable and hated the 20% deal they signed with the senior consultant. Did not make a difference anyway as when all the players were in place such as Macy’s for Melissa McCarthy plus, a wig deal for Wendy Williams, an apparel deal for Snooki (which no one was able to do for years until the Senior Consultant came along) assuring Robert Thorne and Gregory V. Redlitz certainty to receive income for the rest of there lives knowingly and maliciously cut the Senior Consultant out of his share of the entitlements which over the next ten years will add up into the hundreds of thousands of dollars in Royalties.
To the celebrity and to the licensee who see's Robert Thorne and Gregory V. Redlitz, as they self proclaim "attorney's who abide by the law with an immaculate record in the industry", both in fact, have a despicable reputation in the industry. I was warned as they are unworthy, difficult and untruthful people. These two shysters are con artists who certainly conned me into conning others with lies and deceit! This is the truth and there is no slander in the truth.
To the hundreds of people who have been lied to, cheated out of money, lost careers, lost business, had there pride and integrity diminished by Robert Thorne and Gregory Von Redlitz, may you find solace in this report to say Amen, someone is finally stepping up.
In the attempt to collect the debt, since I do not have the funds for an attorney, I decided to call them and sometimes I would express anger as I am still in disbelief that these two shysters can do something so awful to another human being. Their accounts and business managers Eti Kiss and Shaul Mizrahi are just as guilty. They all received my money and the knowingly did not disperse the funds after my many requests, phone class and emails.
As Robert Thorne and Gregory Redlitz have done in the past, their intention is to discredit me and slander my reputation for what was an outstanding job well one that brought them every deal they are working on today!
I have been contacted by the Beverly Hills Police and The FBI. They are playing the victim know and with there fast talk and Beverly Hills Attorney status are using the authorities free of charge to intimidate me and make me stop calling them and emailing them. They are telling my clients who I introduced them to in an email they sent out to “Ignore this individual; he is harassing us as he is you and he has no merit”. How easy would it be for the manufacturers to pay me direct? How easy would it be for the Police and the FBI to request that they pay the Senior Consultant according to the contract they signed? Instead, The Police and The FBI state, it’s a civil matter and the manufacturers, and managers of the celebrities will not get involved because my contract is with The Robert Thorne Company.
Gregory Von Redlitz and Robert Loeb Thorne are unethical in their moral obligation to me, to clients and licensee’s. They should be disbarred. There will always be another sucker like me to believe that these guys will help them earn millions of dollars in state of the art licensing when they do not even have a website or a real office. They work out of there homes and rent a cubicle with a Beverly Hills address.
My intention is to let it be known that these two attorneys are shysters and arrogant to where they will use the Police and The FBI to intimidate anyone that takes a stand for what is right.
I swear on my dogs this is the truth and nothing but the truth. There is no slander in the truth.
To Robert Thorne and Greg Redlitz, you will meet your maker one day and the world will be a better place to be rid of you!
