Joe Young, Attorney Deceptive and Unethical Law Practice Whittier California
DO NOT hire this law firm, you will lose your retainer. Attorney Joe Young has treated me and my case unethically and it's sad that an attorney, who has the ability to make money honestly in the second largest city in the US, has resorted to ripping off clients to fatten up his bank account. READ THE ONLINE REVIEWS! Joe Young has numerous negative online reviews that elaborate on his unethical and immoral behavior reuslting in the loss of his cleints retainer with absolutely no progress in their cases. I did not read his reviews before opening my checkbook to Mr. Young and I'm sorry I didn't. That falls entirely on my own shoulders and have no one to blame except myself!
I hired Joe young 12 months ago to handle a simple Wage and Penalties claim with my former employer. I found Joe Young through Bill Handel's "Handel on the Law" website advertised on radio station KFI in Los Angeles. I mistakenly believed that Bill Handel's team would have vetted this attorney before allowing him to advertise on his site, however I was very wrong.
In my personal opinion Joe Young is nothing more than a shark on the prowl constantly looking for unsuspecting prey to chew up and spit out. I was treated with the utmost disrespect and was cursed at and told to shut up on the phone by this joker. I was actually hung up on twice by Young when I confronted him about the lies he was perpetuating with regards to my case . Since my case required action on the part of the Labor Commissioner's Office in Los Angeles, I finally contacted the Commissioner's office myself to get an update on my case. I could never get a straight answer from Young and was always told by his minions that they were waiting for a response from the Commissioner's office. When I finally got a hold of the Labor Commissioner I was told that a response to my case had been submitted to my attorney over two months ago. Yet neither Joe Young or any of his staff ever called to provide me that information. They skirted the issue constantly and continuously lied to me telling me that they were still waiting for a rsponse from the Commissioner's office. The reason he never informed me was obvious. The Labor Commissioner had no jurisdiction over my case and the letter clearly illustrated that. Because Young DID NOT KNOW THE LAW, he had no recdourse but to lie his way through it constantly telling me that they were waiting for a response from the Labor Commissioner's office. The Commissioner actually told me the following; "And you said your lawyer practiced labor law? Wow, you would have thought he would have known the law and explained that to you before he filed the claim"!
At best his ignorance on cases his firm is handling is a travesty of justice, at worst he his a liar and his staff has been trained to follow in his footsteps. I must reiterate the fact that this review is based on my personal opinion and experince with Young, I don't know if there are others who have experienced the same. Here I am a year later with absolutely no progress or resolution on my "slam dunk" Wage and Penalties claim, as Young put it. I have never heard of an attorney that tells his clents in an email that "things are moving slowly at his law firm because he's going through a divorce which is occupying much of his time". Seriously Mr. Young, are you frikken kidding me? Who gives a rats a*s about your divorce? I went through a divorce too but never used that as an excuse for poor service or unethical behavior toward my clients.
Like I told Mr. Young, I am now on a mission. I asked that he return my unused portion of my retainer but he just laughed that off. That's fine Mr. Young, no problem. I will use every legal resource avaialble to me to make sre not one more person falls prey to your ploys. I am a honest, hard working individual that doesn't have an enemy in the world! I didn't deserve this.
