Stealing

They took money out of my bank account and got a court order without my knowledge. The only way I found out was when I noticed a large sum of cash missing out of my account. Let me see one of you on the street. Black eye for sure.

These mob lawyers are criminal

IT HAS BEEN 10 YEARS FOR ME SINCE MY DEALINGS WITH THIS LAW FIRM... I RETAINED THIS LAWYER TO DEFEND ME AGAINST A CRIMINAL CASE THAT WAS FABRICATED BY THE CLINTON TWP POLICE & AN X GIRLFRIEND... I PAID LUCIDO IN FULL FOR REPRESENTATION AND FOUND OUT THAT HE AND HIS AFFILIATES ARE WORSE THAN THE B.S. FOR WHICH I HAD HIRED HIM FOR... THE STATES CASE FELL APART WHEN I LEARNED THE TRUTH, A CLINTON TWP POLICE OFFICER WAS DATING MY X-GIRLFRIENDS SISTER AND CAME UP WITH THE PLOT TO HAVE ME CHARGED WITH ABUSING MY GIRLFRIEND.. HE TOOK A PHOTO OF ANOTHER WOMANS BRUISED ARM AND THEN FORWARDED AN ARREST WARRANT TO MT CLEMENS P.D. WHERE I WAS ARRESTED AND CHARGED FOR A CRIME THAT I DIDN'T COMMIT... I HIRED LUCIDO LAW FIRM BECAUSE THEY WERE LOCAL AND FOUND OUT JUST HOW CORRUPT THEY TOO WERE... ON THE DAY OF TRIAL, LUCIDO ASKED ME TO SIGN A PLEA AGREEMENT TO LESSER CHARGE... I WAS TOTALLY AMAZED THAT HE WOULD EVEN CONSIDER SUCH A THING ESPECIALLY AFTER I BROUGHT MY X-GIRLFRIEND IN TO HIS OFFICE WHERE SHE EXPLAINED THE TRUTH AND SIGNED A FULL CONFESSION... LUCIDO ATTEMPTED TO GET ME TO SIGN A PLEA ALMOST A DOZEN TIMES, FINALLY I TOLD HIM THAT HE NEEDS TO MOTION A DISMISSAL OR I WILL DO IT FOR HIM... LUCIDO GOT PISSED AND ARGUED THAT THE JUDGE IS GOING TO BIND MY CASE OVER FOR TRIAL AND IF SO, THAT I WILL OWE HIM ANOTHER $3,000.00 FOR TRIAL FEE... WELL, THE CASE GOT DISMISSED BECAUSE THE PROSECUTOR HAD NO WITNESS... MADE TOTAL SENSE TO ME... AFTER DISMISSAL I WENT INTO THE HALLWAY WITH MY MOM AND HER BOYFRIEND AND WAS WAITING ON THE PAPERWORK WHEN LUCIDO CHARGED ME DEMANDING THAT I WRITE A CHECK FOR 3K... I TOLD HIM NO, I DONOT OWE THAT MONEY SINCE THE CASE NEVER WENT TO TRIAL... HE KEPT RAISING HIS VOICE LOUDER AND LOUDER TO THE POINT WHERE EVERYBODY STOPPED TO LISTEN AS HE THREATENED ME... " I WANT MY F***KN MONEY " " IF YOU DON'T PAY ME MY F***kn MONEY " AND THEN HE STOPPED AS HE STORMED OUT OF THE COURTHOUSE... I WAS IN AWE, THIS GROWN MAN NOT ONLY THREATENED ME, BUT HE ASKED ME TO STEP OUTSIDE AT ONE POINT... WELL I THOUGHT AS TIME ROLLED ON THAT WAS THE END OF THAT GUY... I WAS MISTAKEN, IT WAS EARLY LIKE AROUND 6:30 am AND I GOT AWAKENED BY MY UNCLE, GETUP!!! GETUP!!! THERE IS SOME GUY OUTSIDE WRITING DOWN INFORMATION ON ALL YOUR VEHICLES... I WENT OUTSIDE AND ASKED WTF ARE YOU DOING, THE GUYT RESPONDED THAT HE IS A COURT OFFICER AND THAT HE WAS THERE TO SIEZE MY PROPERTY.. I WAS LIKE, OH *** NO... I MOVED TWO VEHICLES RIGHT THEN WITH THE HELP OF MY UNCLE TO A SECURE LOCATION.. WHEN I RETURNED THERE WERE 5 POLICE CARS SURROUNDING MY HOUSE... MY AUNT PARKED HER VAN BEHIND MY ICECREAM TRUCK... THE COPS TOLD HER THAT IF SHE DIDN'T MOVE HER VAN, THEY WERE NOT ONLY GOING TO TOW MINE, BUT HERS ALSO... IT HAD BEEN A LITTLE OVER A YEAR, I THOUGHT LUCIDO HAD FADED AWAY... THE COPS TOLD ME THAT THEY HAD AN ORDER TO SIEZE MY PROPERTY FOR FAILURE TO PAY ON A COURT DEFAULT JUDGEMENT... I WENT OVER TO THE COURTHOUSE IN CLINTON TWP AND FOUND OUT THAT LUCIDO FILED PAPERWORK WITH HIS DRINKING BUDDY JUDGE USING AN OLD ADDRESS SUPPOSIVELY WHERE I HAD SINCE MOVED FEW YEARS PRIOR TO EVER KNOWING THE LUCIDO LAW FIRM.. THE JUDGE ENTERED A BOGUS JUDGEMENT IN FAVOR OF LUCIDO, AND THEN SIGNED AN ORDER TO SIEZE PROPERTY... ALL THIS WAS DONE MOST LIKELY OFF THE RECORD AND BEHIND CLOSED DOORS.. I PERSONALLY FILED A "MOTION TO SET ASSIDE DEFAULT" AND SUBMITTED ALL MY PROOF'S TO THE COURT.. THE SAME JUDGE SET A COURTDATE, ON THE COURTDATE THE SAME JUDGE TOLD ME THAT I SHOULD HAVE FILED MY PAPERWORK PROPERLY.. I TOLD HIM THAT I DID, AND HIS EXACT WORDS WERE, " I DON'T SEE ANY PAPERWORK " CASE DISMISSED... THATS WHEN I KNEW THE JUDGE WAS IN ON IT... LUCIDO IS A CRIMINAL... THERE ARE MANY MORE VICTIMS OF HIS THEFT... THEY STEAL FROM THIER CLIENTS... THEY FORCLOSE ON CLIENTS HOMES TO GET MONEY... THEY LIE, CHEAT, AND THINK THAT THEY ARE ABOVE THE LAW.... NOW THIS *** WANTS TO GET ELECTED INTO OFFICE AS STATE REPRESENTATIVE IN 2014 ???? LUCIDO AND HIS CRONIES NEED TO BE INCARCERATED!!!! STAY CLEAR FROM THIS FOOL

Waste of Money

The lawyer we dealt with at this firm, Nicholas J Bachand, was a complete waste of a nearly a thousand dollars. He accomplished nothing but the draining our bank account. We were referred to him by the Macomb County Bar association, big mistake. Seems that they only give the name of somebody near you, not a recommendation. We could have easily made a better choice by picking somebody at random out of the phone book. When I first met with him during the initial free consult I thought he seemed like a real ***. My wife said that is what we need. The problem is we thought he would be an *** to person we were in a legal dispute with, not to us. Wrong again Bob. First thing he did was print up a Power of Attorney form letter, and charged us a $500 retainer for doing that. He claimed he had trouble getting in touch with the party we had a dispute with, again another load of baloney. I say this because once I decided to take matters into my own hands I had ZERO trouble getting in touch with them. He charged us for what he said was an attempt to negotiate a lower settlement. His negotiation amounted to "my client is willing pay this". That isn't a negotiation, that's being a messenger boy, an extremely expensive *** one. He called after we cut contact with him because we decided to take matters in our own hands due to his terrible attitude and laziness. I told him he was fired, and lo and behold he charged us to fire him. Unless you like squandering money and not getting any tangible results that you could have gotten for the price of a Legal Zoom Legal Form Letter, I would hardily not recommend him, EVER. This is my opinion, I suggest you heed it.
