Jim DeRosa, Event Galleria, Entertainment Concepts Music And Event Services Wedding Couples Beware. Jim DeRosa will take your Money and you will Never See Your Wedding Photos or Album! East Hanover New Jersey
*Author of original report: Some Justice Served
My Wife and my second year wedding anniversary was July 28th, 2009 and we still have no wedding album, which was paid for in full. Jim DeRosa has avoided my calls and emails, giving me false information and/or promised me things and never delivered. At this point I don't feel confident that I will ever see our album through Jim DeRosa. So, now I have two options. I have all of the proper documentation to take him to small claims court and get back our money and photos so another photographer can create our album. But that is not going to stop this man from continuing to hurt other young married couples.
Jim has changed locations at least three times that I know of. He has operated under multiple business names. He has an F Rating for the Better business bureau with 32 complaints http://www.bbb.org/new-jersey/business-reviews/photography-and-video-services/event-galleria-in-florham-park-nj-90010011 He has been put on shame on you http://www.myfoxny.com/dpp/news/Shame_Shame_Shame_Event_Galleria
We need to collectively stand up to this person and ensure he doesn't continue to conduct business in this manner. I have reached out to a few class action lawyers who can help us all and the many others out there that are in the same situation. The last conversation I had with one of Jim's Subcontractors, Noel, I was told there are up to 50+ Albums that still have yet to be created. Jim is currently being sued by Noel's company, Noel Marie Photography, and no Albums are going to be made in the near future. The sad thing is Photography is only one aspect of Jim's businesses.
If you want to move forward and stand up to Jim DeRosa please e-mail me back with a detailed outline of your situation and we will work with an Attorney at no charge to fight to get our money, photos/albums, videos/dvd's and memories back. I have also sent emails to a few newspapers about our situation. I hope to create awareness about what a thief Jim De Rosa is so no one has the same experiences that we did. I also think that Fox 5 is going to do a follow up on his story after my conversation with them the other day.
Jim DeRosa (If you look up Event Galleria on the Internet he has bad reviews from many dissatisfied customers)

The lawyers recommendation was to do the following:
File a complaint with the better business bureau. https://odr.bbb.org/odrweb/public/getstarted.aspx?siteID=89
File a Complaint with the Office of Consumer Complaints (Division of Consumer Affairs) http://www.state.nj.us/lps/ca/ocp/ocpform2.htm
Take Jim DeRosa to Small Claims Court to get your money back. You can have another wedding photographer finish your Album, Video or whatever he has not completed. Get a proposal from another wedding vendor to finish what Jim has not completed and bring a copy of all of your paperwork, contract, mails ect. with you to court. http://www.judiciary.state.nj.us/civil/civ-02.htm (There have been so many people that have taken Jim DeRosa to Small Claims Court so your case should be easy to win.)
My recommendation is the Following: [My goal is to have enough past customers of event galleria comment on these pages so when someone searches for his company on any search engine (google) our blog or reviews will come up next to his website.]

If each one of you can do half of these things than Jim DeRosa won't be able to take advantage of future wedding couples. This guy looked me right in the eye and lied to my face on several locations. He took my money and never delivered my wedding photos. My wife still cries that we don't have our wedding album. I need your help to make sure this doesn't happen to anyone else.
