I am accusing the Law Firm of Thomas J. Sherwood (aka Debt Solutions) of failing to negiotiate a settlement with Discover Card:

June 17, 2011 - Initial contact with The Law Firm of Thomas J. Sherwood (aka 'Debt Solutions') regarding collection calls from representatives for Discover Card

July 13, 2011 - Signed retainer agreement from Roxanne Rodriquez (for the The Law Firm of Thomas Sherwood).

July 30, 2011 - Received 'Success' Letter from Elizabeth Peron. See Exhibit I

September 19, 2011 - Sent email to Elizabeth Peron complaining about constant harassing phone call from legal representatives of Discover Card. See Exhibit II.

November 30, 2011- Received 'notice of lawsuit' from Weltman, Weinburg and Reis that was forwarded to Elizabeth Peron. See Exhibit III

March 31, 2012 - Received judgment notice from Weltman, Weinburg and Reis saying that our bank account was frozen. See Exhibit IV

All messages and documents were forwarded to Tracy Sutherland, Elizabeth Peron, or Brenda Gonzalez

I am seeking $3105.64 + $150.00 (Garnishment fee) + $1200 (fees paid to Thomas J, Sherwood) = $4455.64 for failure to provide contracted legal services.

The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth

AUTHOR: keepingit100 - (United States of America)

In response to your story, I'm sorry you had the complete misfortune of working with this group of people (The Law Office of Thomas J. Sherwood) Being a former employee, I as well had to deal with these monsters. I can tell you that in response to your entire statement, Elizabeth Peron is the person in "charge" of the debt solutions and lending section of the law office, she is never there and almost never on time, as she is William "Bill" Stevens daughter. She manages the company backwards and is as crooked as it comes, far worse than William "Bill" ever could of thought to be. Not only is she horrible at her job, but she is just as horrible with the way she treats people. I worked personally with Elizabeth on a day to day basis (when she was in) and her main concern was getting her divorce papers ready for court and if she had an appointment to go tanning. I never actually saw her do any work that had to do with debt solutions. On several occasions she had me go in client files and make copies of their signatures, cut the signature out and paste it on the new document.. then make another copy and either place it in the client file, so as the client could never say they didn't sign the new contract or that the article wasn't missing in general. She also had me on several occasions contact a clients creditor and pretend to be the client for our benefit, as to gain notices we needed to file whatever paperwork we needed. As for Mr. Sherwood.. that is a completely insane story in itself, he is an old drunk with no common decency left what so ever. He is never in the office, only once week to sign documents and if he never showed up to do so, another employee Roxanna Rodriguez or Elizabeth Peron would forge his signature on those documents, this happened on several occasions.  My last week of work, there was some talk of them firing Mr.Sherwood and hiring a new attorney because he was getting bad ratings on here and BBB. Also, the day that I went in to get my last check, the Account Manager Brenda told me "do not wait to cash this, all the accounts are fixing to be frozen and all assets as well." Bill as well as several of the other employees there have criminal records that go back extensively and just about everyone there is a fraud and phony. The only way I can tell you to get your money back is to contact a Lawyer and have them investigated, take it to the streets, call Bay news 9 and tell them your story and you will be amazed how many others have had similar situations as yourself. I'm sorry that you had to go through this and if you need anything please feel free to ask away. I probably even dealt with your file myself. Good luck and don't let them get away with what they have done to you.

Thomas Sherwood & William Stevens

AUTHOR: Xemployee - (United States of America)

I'm an ex employee. Mr. Sherwood has nothing to do with this office. His name was used by William Stevens. Bill Stevens paid Mr. Sherwood weekly to use his name. The only person that you can get a refund from is Bill Stevens. File a bar complaint which the bar knows about William Stevens contact the BBB and file a complaint or sue Bill Stevens. This is the only way. This company is debt solutions and lending, Saje, law office of Thomas j Sherwood and more. These are all operated by Bill Stevens.

Can this be real??

AUTHOR: The Outlaw Josey Wales - (United States of America)

 Someone has the nerve not to answer to Team Rebutt. It can't be, Team Rebutt needs to know. If more people would do this, perhaps Team Rebutt would disappear.

You didn't answer the question.

How much is Discover "out" due to your failure to honor your commitment to repay? The correct answer would be a monetary amount such as dollars.

Response to a question

AUTHOR: Archangel0628 - (USA)

In answer to your question, the Law Firm of Thomas J. Sherwood was hired to negotiate a fair settlement with Discover Card. If you read my report carefully that because of their incompetence and sloppiness that Discover Card created a lot of unnecessary inconvience on themselves and my significant other. That if Mr. Sherwood's law firm had done what they were supposed to do that Discover Card could have gotten more than what they ended up getting without causing all that pain and inconvienence to us.
