Complaint Review: Joshua Kohanim - Los Angeles CA
Joshua Kohanim Kohanim Law Group, Fair Cases Dishonest and unethical Los Angeles CA
At the outset, I'd like to note that I am not a competitor, nor am I a disgruntled former employee. This review is based entirely upon my direct dealings with Josh Kohanim, and the law firm of "Kohanim Law Group," aka "Fair Cases."
I've been a lawyer for 31 years and have never written a bad review of someone I have worked with in all of these many years. However, my experience with Josh Kohanim was so negative that I feel compelled to warn people who are thinking about hiring him.
To put a fine point on it, I believe him to be the most dishonest, least ethical attorney with whom I have ever crossed paths in my decades as a lawyer.
Here's a completely factual (and supportable) account of our dealings:
In November 2019, he hired my legal marketing company to build a Google advertising account so that he could market his new law practice (Josh has only been a lawyer for about 3 months so "Kohanim Law Group" aka "Fair Cases" is starting at ground-zero).
On January 9, 2020, I delivered the completed project and invoiced him for the $1,000 balance owing on the services. On that same day, he acknowledged receipt of the services and soon after paid the $1,000 (I found out later that his initial payment of $500 to begin the project was declined by his credit card company, but my attempts to collect on that is a completely different story).
He couldn't start the advertising yet because, based on phone conversations I had with him (and maybe an email or two), it seemed like he had to work out with his Dad how much he would be allowed to spend.
The plan was for me to manage his Google advertising after completion of the account development services, but due to a fateful exchange of words one particular morning a few weeks later, I chose to withdraw from the future management part of the project. I gave him contact information for a respected competitor who could take over if desired, because I knew at that point, that my life would be better without him in it.
Now, in childish retaliation, he's trying to reverse the charges on what he had paid me over a month ago for my completed services. It appears to be based on some falsehood that I didn't deliver the services.
But the money isn't the point. At this stage of my business development, $1,000 is very little and I give away more in a typical month to one cause or another.
I believe that lawyers are held to a higher standard than this and in my opinion, his behavior is a disgraceful discredit to the legal profession and in my opinion, he makes a mockery of the California Rules of Professional Conduct.
So, to reiterate, based on my experience, in my opinion, I believe that he is dishonest and unethical and I strongly advise against hiring him.
On a side note, in personal injury law, experience matters. Even if Josh is the most gifted lawyer in the world (unlikely, but maybe), a competent lawyer with many years of personal injury experience may get you a better result than someone who passed the bar exam 3 months ago and is learning the ropes as your case progresses.
