Complaint Review: Eskridge Law, - Torrance California
Eskridge Law, Gayle Eskridge, Esq. | ESKRIDGE LAW is a litigation and trial firm dedicated to employment, real estate, and business litigation matters. Torrance California
This is a disingenuous law firm founded by a non-ABA accredited correspondence law school graduate. I retained Gayle Eskridge's services (founder of Eskridge Law) in what would end up being a career ending wrongful termination case. She and her associates proceeded to slow-walk my case for well over a year. During this time, Gayle produced what I would consider to be some of the worst legal writing I've ever encountered.
How she allowed this work product to be seen by me, not to mention potential defendants/opposing counsel, continues to elude me. To this day, I occasionally review my case documents; discovery did, by the way, cost me well over $200,000. I remain astounded by her ineptness, indecisiveness, and vacuous understanding of my case’s fact pattern. In this instance, as both an attorney and advocate, she was patently out of her depth. Unfortunately for me, she was also acutely aware of my financial standing. After bilking me, she promptly let my case die on the vine.
I was compelled to contact several attorneys specializing in legal malpractice. Without divulging the outcome, the unanimous consensus was that, “…she used you like an ATM.”
In her defense, I did suspect early on that she was a long shot. I failed to heed the many instances that betrayed her true intention of indefinitely delaying my case while billing for every conceivable incidental expense. The timeliness and painstakingly detailed nature of her invoices belied her inadequate attention, and outright inaction, for anything truly advancing my case. After repeated attempts at imploring her to file on my behalf failed, and after she began to realize that monthly invoices for $18,000. were no longer tenable, her work was complete. She had one of her associates hastily pass me off to another firm. In the end, I would lose my career. I would file for bankruptcy. And, I would have no one to blame except for myself. Obviously, I cannot recommend Gayle Eskridge for anything except the most rudimentary of labor/employment law matters. After reading her firm’s other planted “reviews” on Yelp, etc., I felt it irresponsible not to provide a more balanced and forthright appraisal.
