Took my money after not representing me There was a payment mix up that occurred and my bank did a chargeback because they red flagged the transaction. After he called to notify me, I immediately called my bank and told them it was an approved transaction. However, between PayPal and my bank, it took a long period of time to reverse the charge. A couple weeks later, the law firm dropped my case and I had to get a public defender within 2 days of the court date just because I was under the impression the bank was taking care of the matter but they assumed I was “playing games.” I hired them to avoid going to jail for something I didn’t do, but ended up going to jail for 30 days. After I got released, the bank finally released the payment of $2000 to them and the law firm took all of it. They said it took that long to go my discovery documents. I even offered to give them up to $800 for their time. And then he has the nerve to get nippy with me on the phone when I was trying to explain exactly what happened. Zack is only looking out for his pocket. Do not hire. They don’t have your back.
