I was desperate for fair nondiscriminatory treatment at my workplace. The process with Zac Ruetz was extremely traumatizing- Zac Ruetz made promises that he would reach out to expedite my mediation date but was unresponsive and then the night before the mediation date...

Screwed

Paid 5k upfront, then additional 3k. My 1st lawyer was great, but she left the company because of their conduct. I was not allowed to leave TR and go with her. I was charged for another lawyer to review her work and submit drafts identical to her original. They would not listen to my request to change council. He did not read legal return or my own explanation of what was wrong. He did, however, charge me to get advice from another lawyer. DON'T GIVE THEM A DIME! I left and got matters resolved quickly for a fraction of what I lost to them. Their responses were: none, automated, or only if posted on social media.

Hired the legal firm for my son. He had some issues around driving his car shortly after earning his license. I was quoted one price to retain the attorney. I figured it was a fair price because the one other attorney I'd hired was approximately $500 more. Well, little...

Pricing issue
New Reviewer

Poor communication

Feb 2019 security clearance case. Called and presented my case was told one price and when he left the company the prices change. I paid $2000 above what I was quoted. I expected lawyers to help structure your case to better the defense. Not Tobey Hackett, a military lawyer who’s only defense is “look at the whole person concept”. I could have save myself $7000 to do that. His lies that he only lost one case which turns out that he loses. When instead he loses most of them. Then after the case they charged me another $100 to tell me I lost. STAY AWAY FROM TULLY RICKNEY AND ESPECIALLY TOBEY HACKET. He had the nerve to tell me I was rude because I asked a lot of questions . This review is NOT because I lost but because of the misrepresentation of the company, pricing, and how well the staff treats the customer. They charge you a whole lot of money for something you can do yourself.

Abandoned by my attorney

I am currently involved in a lawsuit with the federal government. The attorney that was appointed to me from the firm was late to our first conference call with the judge. The day our witness list was due to the judge, she called me at 11 PM to try to put it together. I texted her information and she still got it wrong. The first person on the witness list was a person that I had emailed her twice and sent his obituary. She listed a DEAD GUY as our first witness. Then I received questions from the opposing attorney to complete. CRICKETS. I have not heard from her in 2 weeks, but I got an invoice for over $3,000 in attorneys fees. Unbelievable.

You are not alone my friend. How on earth they still maintain their practicing license is beyond me.

This firm NEEDS to be looked into. I believe their practices to be highly unethical if not downright criminal.

Over bill and poor representation

Used this firm for an ROTC issue. Do NOT waste your money. The attorney made the situation worse and they even billed me for a stamp when they dumped us for client! It's a joke. They pull the bait and switch. You talk to an extremely knowledgeable attorney and then are turned over to an attorney from *** F'ed that charges you outrageous amounts of money for travel. $150.00/hr for sitting on an plane. I could have driven to pick the guy up cheaper or hired a cab for what they charged me. Still fighting over bogus charges. If you are looking for a lawyer, keep looking unless you have disposable income.

Would not recommend

Handled my bankruptcy. Went in with requirement that property was taken as a "deed in lieu" as this was the reason for the bankruptcy. Was told it was not a problem. The case was handed off to another lawyer who on the court date, had no idea what I was talking about. I would just have to wait for the foreclosure. That took 4 years. Their mistake has cost me a mortgage, since the bankruptcy was old enough that it would not be held against me, but the 4 year delay in the foreclosure, was held against me. I am still dealing every year with companies purchasing the debt that was written off in the bankruptcy. I had to pay an accountant to straightened that mess out. They did almost nothing right for ma on this. WATCH OUT. They'll get you to sign on the dotted line and pass you off to a less than competent lawyer.

I had a paid consultation with them regarding divorce and was promised that my matter would be dealt with promptly and with an experienced family law attorney. When I called to make payment to start the process, I was redirected to another attorney who had NO idea of my case other than what was written on paper from the previous consultation! They don't care about their client's best interests, just getting money up front!

Promises, promises with no results

Lawyers given toooo many cases to work for clients. Concerned more about being paid. Lawyer MILL. Stay away from this firm if you want satisfaction. Go with a firm that cares about the client and not padding the wallet when you are most vulnerable. Hired Tully Legal to represent me in a custody issue and would have been better off representing myself as the attorney assigned to me entered the courtroom not knowing the case. Thought I was paying the high price for good representation - don't be fooled - more glitter then substance. Interview the attorney brfore you pay and stay away from Tully Legal

BS whitewash. at some point you people will be investigated for what you are doing.

This is whitewash again and this is my second posting about this Law Firm. Oh my Gosh, what happened is something I have seen in the movies.

I received a letter from a woman named JoAnne Perniciaro in the so-called client relationship department about how they wanted to resolve my dissatisfaction with the firm. She promised to call me and make a monetary solution. She never called and had me waiting and waiting for her call. I sent an email to Kaleena Young who also was involved in trying to resolve my dissatisfaction with their law firm.

My email to her is below

Date: Aug 6 at 9:11AM

From Me

To: Kaleena N. Young (kyoung@***.com)

Subject: Tully Rinckey Appointment

Ms. Young, What kind of game are you and Tully Rinckey playing with me? You set up an appointment with a JoAnne Perniciaro on Tuesday August 1, 2017 at 9:00am eastern time.

Someone called me and told me Ms. Perniciaro was in a meeting and that she would call me back at 9:30am. She called me at 9:30am and discussed they would refund me some or all of my money because Greg Zappia and Theresa Levine did NOT do as I paid for them to do and NOT submitting my witness list to the Agency. JoAnne Perniciaro promised to call me back on Friday August 4, 2017 at 7am eastern standard time.

I waited and waited and waited three hours for her phone call and she never called me!! JoAnne Perniciaro and Tully Rinkey wants me to take down my posting and promised to send me a certified check. Well JoAnne Perniciaro has NOT done either of the two promises above. This is another untruthful act and failed promise by the Law Firm of Tully Rinckey.

I have nothing but utmost disdain and disgust for this law firm. I wish i had read all of the complaints about this firm BEFORE I Paid them to do a job for me. My next step is I will contact the media to let them know the entire ordeal so others can learn from this and NOT be scammed as I was and the others who have submitted their complaints here. When I hear or read the words Tully Rinckey I heard, see and feel Filth, Trash and ***.

They make me want to vomit in their face! Angry & Disgusted Whitewash

I agree awful practice they make you realize why attorneys are often called blood suckers. take your money bs you and move on to the next unsuspecting person.

STAY AWAY from them. get a local person who cares about you even if they have no knowledge of your unique case as they like to say....

ie to charge you more money........ RIP OFF
