Law firm that makes you pay for their mistakes!

When you hire a law firm to represent you in any capacity, you expect them to have your best interest at heart; you are, afterall, paying them to take care of you. Meneo & Goldfield was hired to represent me, but it turns out that their first, foremost and only concern is about every single dollar in their own pocket. They (not I) incorrectly filed a legal document in regard to my case. A "typo" was made in the spelling of my last name, therefore my last name is spelled incorrectly on this legal document. (Keep in mind that my last name is a simple and very short last name.) When I noticed this, I brought this to their attention, only to be told that I would have to pay to have the legal document refiled with the correct spelling of my last name. I gave them the correct spelling of my last name from the very beginning, so they had the correct spelling of my last name all along. I did not type up the paperwork, nor did I submit the paperwork for filing; Meneo & Goldfield did this. Meneo & Goldfield incorrectly spelled my last name and Meneo & Goldfield filed the paperwork with my last name spelled incorrectly. Meneo & Goldfield, however, absolutely refuses to correct their mistake unless I pay for it. They have told me that they will only fix the mistake that THEY made if I pay to have the document refiled. Keep in mind that the fee to refile this document is less than $50. Could you imagine if this was a costly error?! Not only that, but they even have the nerve to tell me that I have to have the document notorized and then brought to them. They have a notary right there in the office, but they want me to pay to have a document notarized that has to be refiled becase of the their own mistake! They will not even fix their mistakes on legally filed documents that will cost them next to nothing to fix, and they are making me go out of my way to have it notarized and incur yet another expense due to their error, when that is not even necessary. Also, other than showing up, my attorney (Atty. Goldfield) made no effort to ensure that I was not being taken advantage of by the other party. He just sat there.. when asked for his opinion or advice, he gave none, absolutely none! Isn't this his job? When things seemed fishy, he offered nothing and made no attempt to secure any kind of deposit (which he should have done and any other lawyer would have done) to ensure that I was covered in the event that the other party did not hold up their end, which, by the way, they did not. So, basically, what you can expect from Meneo & Goldfield is less that what you could do yourself. They will make no effort beyond breathing. They will not take care of you or have your best interest at heart. You will have to pay (literally) for their mistakes. You can be assured, however, that they will make every penny they can off of you!

Thank you, I search their name because they were one of the firms I was researching to hire for a upcoming product liability case......As I see like a lot of lawyers, you can't trust them
