Resolved: Archer and Greiner are self-serving thieves

Update by user Apr 02, 2017

Quoted our small company $180,000 to defend a infringement claim initiated by a patent troll.We paid them $600,000 and they sued us for $1,115,000. They are forcing us to close down our company as we cannot afford to fight the legal battle.

It's all about them and they could care less about their clients or their existence. Our company wanted to quit the case because it was draining all of our funds but they insisted on continuing for an additional year even though we told them we would never be able to pay them. They did press releases around the country on their victory of the case and now they want to put us, their client out of business.They should be barred from practicing any type of law and I'll do anything I can to expose this nasty giant from hurting future small businesses.

Review about: Patent Litagation. I didn't like: Ripoff, Bad ethics, Dishonesty, Be quoted a fee and being charged 8 times more, Bad business advice.

Legal Thievery Corporation : Arthur Sklar and Bill Thompson

Arthur Sklar and Bill Thompson The law firm Archer & Greiner is very irresponsible.Patch was sued for publishing false statements and endangering witnesses. They put forth a very weak attempt to defend Patch in a case where Patch is not only at fault, but the very contents of their articles regarding the plaintiff are still putting the plaintiff in harm's way. Joel G. MacMull, a lawyer at Archer & Greiner, refused to answer the complaint that Patch was served with. MacMull did not even enter an appearance form in the required time frame and then filed a deceitful filing in Patch's defense. After researching online reviews for Archer & Greiner of Haddonfield, New Jersey, I found several other clients that were ripped off by the law firm. I found several reviews including one that stated “These people care about their profits, not their clients. Go elsewhere. You'd be better off representing yourself.” Suspiciously, I found that Archer & Greiner recently changed the name of their practice to Archer Law. Could this be to confuse members of the public into not associating the bad reviews of Archer & Greiner with Archer Law? What Patch.com is involved in is a major national news story.I find this reporting highly offensive on Patch's behalf and what they put this young man through when they legally had no access to any of the information listed in the complaint. sounds familiar, theives
