Date Posted: April 29, 2009  Action Line Complaint:   Anna L. Brown  Category: Lawyers

Address

P.O. Box 1504
Naples
Florida, 
County: Collier
  Phone Number Unavailble
Overview
Suspended for 90 days, effective 30 days from a Jan. 17 court order. (Admitted to practice: 1995) Two cousins charged with felonies visited Brown\'s office together and signed retainer agreements presented to them by Brown\'s paralegal. One of the men paid $700 and agreed to pay $250 a month until the $3,500 fee for his representation was paid. Brown actively represented one client but failed to diligently represent him or communicate with him. Brown accepted money from the other client, appeared in court and filed pleadings for him, but she never personally told him that another lawyer was representing him. Because the cousins\' interests were directly adverse, Brown\'s representing both of them was improper. (Case No. SC04-2119)

Address Unavailable County: unavailable
  1800-922-0204
Overview
This summer my family traveled to Canada for one month. Before leaving we contacted Verizon to change our plans to the North America plan so that we could use our services in Canada. We were told TWICE (in separate calls) that this was taken care of for both our cell phones and our USB modem. Once in Canada the phones worked fine, but the modem stopped working. We were told they would fix it right away. When we returned home in August we received a bill for nearly $4000. After calling about it the representatives claimed that we were informed early in July that those services were not available for the USB modem. After three months of trying to resolve this with them we are now fed up and wanting to take action. We have filed with the BBB and are sending out as many complaints as possible. We have excellent credit and do not want it destroyed for something that is not our fault!

Date Posted: September 26, 2008  Public Complaint:   Edwardo Malconaldo, DSLI & Hotwire  Category: Business Complaint
Address Unavailable County: unavailable
  305-779-5752
Overview
When my mother tried to change her phone service from Hotwire to AT&T after having difficulties for several years, she was originally told she could keep her phone number which she has had for 30 years but when AT&T tried to set up her service they were told that Hotwire would not release the phone number. After trying to resolve this for 3 weeks we just learned that DSLI who was the phone company providing Hotwire with the phone lines is having a billing dispute with Hotwire and is holding her number along with many other numbers mainly seniors, until Hotwire pays them the money they claim they owe. My mother is now caught in the middle of a billing dispute and can not set up her new phone service unless she wants to change her number which she does not because she depends on it.

This customer was very hard to deal with so our attorneys handle it. Also as for the deposit we did leg work such as pulling permits so we had to come to agreement about the fees he owed us. He also went to the courthouse and made a court date and canceled the court date we try to do good by our customers but you can\\\'t please everyone. We have settle this problem but it wasn\\\'t our fault. We also gave him his deposit back less the fees. Also he didnt give us the deposit when he claimed. So please take our name off this web-site.

Address Unavailable County: palm beach
  5616841323
Overview
took the car in installation of spark plugs and wires. Also the car had a horrible clicking sound. He replaced belts that he said it would be and a tensioner. The car was in the same condition and worsened when we got it back. We called to make an appointment to bring it back many times but he would not help us on saturday and we live far. He was aware of that. Yesterday when I had the appointment the car would not start and I phoned them first thing and spoke to Jason he said not to worry bring it when you can. This morning my husband had the car started and drove it over first thing and the owner Bruce said take it to the dealership I can\\\\\\\'t help you. He did not even try to make things right after he replaced things that obviously were not the issue with the car.

Overview
We are home owners in West Boca Raton, that for two long years have been trying to work with a construction company by the name of Alliance Contractors / Sla-tur out of Pompano Beach. We've spent over 200K on a project that was originally set to be 160k and we are not even 20 percent done, the contractor did not even pay their subcontractors and they are now coming after us. We have documented the entire process however, it seems that we can't recover our money. We wanted to know if this is something you get involved or can refer us to someone else. At this time we estimate that we were taken by more than 150K. Would you be interested in helping us? Is there anyone else that can help? We are looking for options at this time that could potentially help us.
