They charged me a $5,000 fee (retainer) paid at to different dates. I first paid $3,000 on and later before I was supposed to pay the $2,000 remaining, I asked them a several times about providing me with an invoice. They never presented me with an invoice, instead the law firm asked me for the second payment.
The Manchanda Law Offices basically asked me to come see them and talk with them a few times (maybe 3 times), and nothing important regarding my mom's case was not resolved on mentioned. They just had a lawyer that showed up in the Court at that appointment, but other than that the Manchanda Law filled AR 11, a cover letter, and that's all.
When I called to speak with the lawyers , they put me on hold, and I could never get in touch with them, but they charged me even for the time I left a message on their answer machine.
The firm asked me a few days ago to provide them with another retainer of $5,000 because the $5,000 I already gave them was wasted. I could not believe my eyes, and I kept asking them for an invoice, which after a few good days, they emailed to me.
I did not hire me to email me, or talking to me on the phone, I hired them to file simple application (which I could have done it myself). They have on their walls big awards, but all they do is to scam, rip off people, and they are more concerned with the billing instead of doing something (law involved work) for the clients.
I live in New York for 10 years, and this kind of scam never happened to me. It makes me realize that I should not trust any company which is not true. I hope you solve my case.
The Manchanda Law Offices is a scam, rip off company that scams ordinary people. They make huge bills by billing us for emails, talking on the phone and talking with the secretary- which is $350/ per a few minutes.
This is ridiculous how these lawyers are cheating and fraud the good moral people. My lawyers were Justin Parson who is just incompetent- and I was charged for his incompetence- more that $1,000 for having an affidavit done (I could have done that myself), and Rachel Rosenberg, who kept charging me for talking on the phone only.
I called again asking for some original documents I sent them and they said that They are going to bill me for the time I was on hold, and of course they are not going to return back my original documents.
