Dissatisfaction W/ Ronald Dinan & Associates

Friday, April 23, 2010

I hired Ronal Dinan & Associates to defend my son on a felony (4th) DUI arrest. First and maybe foremost, there were some significant issues with the evidence in the case starting with the fact that my son barely blew over the limit for DUI. But beyond that there were issues with the Highway Patrols reporting of the arrest and some issues with the cause for the stop in the first place.

From the very beginning I had significant issue with Ronald Dinan & Associates. Issues with communications (not getting timely communications), not getting communications at all, getting erroneous information, even to the point that their firm wasn't even aware that my son was still in jail. By the third week i had alredy lodged no les than two complaints with Dave "Jake" Schwartz who was supposed to manage the attorneys for the firm.

At one point I got a call from Ronald Dinan & Associates to ask me if my son had moved from his current address, while in fact he was still in jail. They indicated that they sent an invoice to him for fees and the invoice was returned and that there would be no additional work done until he paid the invoice. In fact, from day one I was the cosigner and had been paying the bills and had never received an invoice. This, in fact, prompted my third complaint cal to Dave "Jake" Schwartz.

My biggest dissatisfaction, however, comes from not believing that I got fair value for the fees that I paid. Now, let me say here that I am AWARE that in a criminal defense it is very much like gambling that you get what you get. But, I have a signed statement that I am willing to share that is from n individual that was in Mendocino County jail at the very same time as my son for exactly the same charges. HERE IS THE KICKER, MY FRIENDS, THIS INDIVIDUAL HIRED A PUBLIC DEFENDER AND ACTUALLY GOT A BETTER DEAL THAT MY SON RECEIVED. Ronanld Dinan & Associates' attorney got a deal with the courts and was not even capable of getting the courts to adhere to the deal and my son wound up having to accept a worse deal than the courts had agreed to.

Where fees are concerned as all of this was going on the firm of Ronald Dinan & Associates kept on milking me for additional monies. Even after a call to Dave "Jake" Schwartz to ask that no further work be done on this case where he indicated that there were "only some minor administrative fees" left owing, I got yet another invoice for over $1,400.
