I hired Mr. Bebereia to represent me in my divorce case.  The hearing was set for January 5, 2010.
We had a conference with the other party for 3 hours to negotiate all the financial terms.  At the end Mr Bebereia chose NOT to do a written stipulation but an oral one.  I have to stress out that the other party is DEAF.
After the hearing Mr. Bebereia was supposed to prepare the order for me and the other party to sign and be divorced.  After 3 months the order was not ready.  By then I had already paid him over $ 6,000,00.
I called him and wrote him emails asking the reason for this delay.  NO ANSWER.  I had to hire another attorney to prepare the order and be done.
On top of this, after so many months and NO WRITTEN STIPULATION the other party (who has a serious hearing impairment) claimed he did not understand the terms and now he doesn't agree with the terms.  The other party filed a set aside of the judgment, I had to hire another attorney to fight it, more money, more time.  I asked Mr. Bebereia to refund me the money for the poor unprofessional job he did in Court on 1/4/10.  He refused.  I sued him.  I won the case in Small Claims Court.  He appealed but I am sure I will win the appeal as well.
DO NOT HIRE HIM.  HE ONLY LOOKS FOR MONEY.  UNPROFESSIONAL, UNCARING.  A TOTAL RIP OFF.

#1 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Gabriella is wrong. Here is the truth.

AUTHOR: Donald Bebereia - (United States of America)

Here is the truth. Gabriella fired her first attorney and hired me to finish her divorce case. On the day of trial, we met and conferred with her now ex husband and agreed on a complete settlement of the case. He is hearing impaired, not deaf. We reached a full settlement of all issues at about 4:00 p.m. that day. There was no way to write up the settlement that day as the court closes at 4:30 p.m. Both parties were given a choice: (1) go into court that afternoon and announce the terms of settlement on the record or (2) come back the following morning with a written document. Neither wanted to spend additional time or money coming back. We announced the terms on the record and the husband was questioned and announced his agreement line by line. Several months later, Husband brought a motion to set the judgment aside saying he didn't understand it when he agreed to it because he is hearing impaired. That motion was denied and the judgment that I negotiated, a judgment favorable to Gabriella, remains in place today. Gabriella thought that I should pay the costs of the set aside hearing. I disagreed as "my" judgment was upheld and because she made the decision to announce the settlement that day and to not go back the following day with a written document. Further, I, the attorney, have no control over what "goofy" motions an opposing party might file. When I refused to

pay for the motion, Gabriella retaliated by posting this negative review. - Don Bebereia
