This man is an extremely dangerous individual.He posts on Los Angeles Craigslist a hundred times a day advertising himself as a "legal ghostwriter".His business card claims he is certified by the "Los Angels County Bar Association" however......I called them & they googled his name & declared him a conartist.They suggested I report him to the Dept of Consumer Affairs & the police.STEVEN GREYSON is NOT a legal document assistant (the proper term in California).
He may change his CL ads after this report but the substance of his con is below:
IF YOU CAN'T AFFORD AN ATTORNEY, I CAN HELP YOU!!! FIRST, I AM NOT A LAWYER, BUT I'VE BEEN DRAFTING LEGAL DOCUMENTS FOR OVER 30 YEARS. I WAS TAUGHT HOW TO DO THIS BY A FORMER FEDERAL PROSECUTOR WHO TRAINED ME FOR OVER 3 YEARS. AFTER MY TRAINING, I FILED A FEDERAL LAWSUIT AGAINST FEDERAL EMPLOYEES AND I PROSECUTED MY CASE IN FEDERAL DISTRICT COURT IN ARIZONA. I PREPARED ALL OF THE DOCUMENTS MYSELF AND GAVE MY ORAL ARGUMENT BEFORE THE CHIEF FEDERAL JUDGE. I WON THE CASE, BUT THE GOVERNMENT APPEALED THE CASE TO THE 9TH CIRCUIT COURT OF APPEALS IN SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA. I PREPARED MY LEGAL DOCUMENTS MYSELF, AND I GAVE MY ORAL ARGUMENT WITHOUT THE ASSISTANCE OF AN ATTORNEY, IN FRONT OF THE CHIEF JUDGE OF THE 9TH CIRCUIT COURT OF APPEALS, ALEX KOZINSKI, WHO SAID "I WAS BETTER THAN MOST ATTORNEYS WHO CAME BEFORE HIM". OBVIOUSLY, A HUGE COMPLIMENT FROM A FEDERAL JUDGE! I WON THE APPEAL IN SPITE OF 2 ASSISTANT ATTORNEYS WHO REPRESENTED THE DEFENDANT WITH MUCH MORE EXPERIENCE THAN I HAD. The growth of pro se litigants can be attributed to the high cost of litigation, anti-lawyer sentiment, and the advent of do-it-yourself law services. However, self-represented litigants may still need legal representation in order to navigate the litigation process. Legal ghostwriting is one way in which clients can receive legal counsel while maintaining control of their case and avoiding higher legal costs. Attorneys offering legal ghostwriting services often charge a flat fee rather than billing by the hour as is typical for full-service attorneys, but they charge much more than I do.
I'M A PROFESSIONAL LEGAL GHOSTWRITER AND HAVE OVER 30 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE WITH PREPARING LEGAL DOCUMENTS IN CIVIL AND CRIMINAL CASES, AND I'M VASTLY LESS EXPENSIVE THAN ATTORNEYS! One must recognize the extent to which Pro Se litigants receive special lenience in the courts. It is well-established that Pro Se pleadings are held to less stringent standards than formal pleadings drafted by lawyers. The generous manner in which courts construe Pro Se pleadings is not limited to giving the pleaded facts their maximum effect. Some courts also recognize possible legal causes of action suggested by the facts alleged in the pleading, even if the pleading itself makes no mention of such causes of action. Further, courts must also give Pro Se litigants wide leeway to amend deficient complaints and must explain to the litigant why such complaints are legally deficient and how they might be amended. In other words, the court must do more than simply advise the Pro Se plaintiff that his complaint needs to be shorter and more concise. Also, the lenient reading of Pro Se pleadings applies not only to motions for dismissal on the pleadings, but also extends to Pro Se responses to motions for summary judgment against them. Finally, courts will tolerate substantial procedural errors by Pro Se litigants that would not otherwise be permitted. I CHARGE A FLAT RATE FEE FOR PREPARING YOUR LEGAL DOCUMENTS. THE FEE IS BASED ON WHAT COURT DOCUMENTS NEED TO BE FILED. THERE IS NO GUARANTEE OF THE OUTCOME OF YOUR CASE! YOU CAN CALL ME ANYTIME FOR A FREE CONSULTATION. I'M AVAILABLE 7 DAYS A WEEK AND IF YOU LEAVE ME A MESSAGE, I WILL CALL YOU BACK THE SAME DAY."
I met him in person & he seemed like a nice caring individual.I paid him $750.00 for legal document preparation services nearly two months ago & as of today (12/17/17) he has produced NOTHING! Every other week he has been in the "hospital" asking for personal details or just not responded.I believe this behavior was to keep me from suspecting I have been conned.Only now am I just realizing that this man isn't working on any legal documents for me at all & I have been scammed out of $750.I am currently attending college & that $750 was the last of my financial aid money for the fall semester.When I emailed the day before Thanksgiving he was "sick all week & couldn't work on my legal complaint documents".
He ignored my phone calls & emails for the most part.In my very last contact with him.....yet again....he is "in the hospital until next Friday & your funds are NON refundable". As of 12/17/17 STEVEN GREYSON has not produced a SINGLE PHYSICAL LEGAL COMPLAINT DOCUMENT that I paid him to do.He is a con artist & I hope this prevents anyone else from becoming victimized by this man.I have filed a police report in the area where he maintains a private P.O.Box.I have also filed complaints with the California Attorney General's office,the LA County Dept of Consumer Affairs & the FTC. He spends a great deal of his times drinking away the money he cons from people on Craigslist at a restaurant in West Los Angeles.On the night we met the bartender recognized him & even said "Hey Steven" because he drinks there so much.
This man is a very sofisticated con artist & unlike many of his previous victims I will make sure this behavior stops immediately. STEVEN GREYSON is behind all of the responses on this website to any complaints against him via fake accounts he has created.People have better things to do then waste their time on Ripoff Report.If someone takes the time to file a report here,its because its the truth.
I will have justice not just for me but for everyone he has conned in the past.This behavior will end.
