My experience with September is negative. September talks confidently but practices "Bait and Switch" and double bills, for her and her appearance lawyer, who in my case appeared without my authorisation, unprepared and had no clue about the underlying law on which the hearing was based. She doesn't practice what she advertises. I found September on "Court Buddy" website where she advertises herself and NOT her "Consumer Litigation Center". The web site on which she advertises offers "unbundled legal services at flat rates based on your budget". I hired "her" to help me with a technical issue, which she did not disclose she had no prior experience with. In time when she should have rejected the case due to lack of experience with the underlying matter and instead of taking care of the matter herself, she sent an unprepared appearance lawyer to Court on a very important matter for me, without seeking my consent. When Jeff appeared, he (i) did not know anything about the case and (ii) have refused to talk about the case or even read what I gave him, and was (iii) rude and disinterested. This is not what i agree to retain her to do or the service I expected. When I objected Jeff said don't talk to me talk to September. Not knowing that Jeff admitted to not knowing anything about the case or underlying legal issue that he had no experience with, September lied to me that "they both worked on the preparation", which was inconsistent with what Jef admitted. Despite that I cancelled the agreement, September refused to provide refund and she claimed she burned through $5,000 retainer in couple of day. Capriciously, and in retaliation for a dispute, she without notice required by law filed a meritless motion to prejudice me. She did not effectuate proper service of it and refused to communicate about what she did, knowing what she did was wrong. Beware.
