Preston Rezaee Lawyer Stole my Savings and Ruined my Divorce
Preston Rezaee is a lawyer in Las Vegas who owns a place called THE FIRM at 200 E Charleston Blvd in Las Vegas. He took all of my savings because my ex filed a motion to try and get custody of my daughter and make me pay support. I was a stay at home mom forever and make $11/hour. Preston Rezaee extorted $1500 from me in order to respond to a motion that his secretary said it was VERY IMPORTANT to respond to. I paid and waited for them to call me in to draft the response. I called and called and every time I was told they would call me. The 10 days to file came and went. They told me the day before the hearing that they filed a response "denying everything" -- I have no idea what they would have filed since they didn't even ask me about the allegations my ex was making against me! The day of the hearing Preston Rezaee showed up an hour late and proceeded to make a mockery of the court, my case and everything about my divorce. I felt publicly humiliated and he didn't defend me against the other lawyers slanderous remarks at all. Since Preston Rezaee FAILED to file the proper financial disclosure paperwork he ASKED the court against my wishes and without my consent to defer any financial ruling. I had told his secretary repeatedly that i was in desperate need of spousal support since I was thisclose to becoming HOMELESS. After my huge embarrassing court appearance I emailed Preston Rezaee's secretary and asked her to send me a copy of the response to the motion that I paid A THOUSAND DOLLARS for Preston Rezaee to file. I also asked for an invoice. After three weeks I had still gotten no response. I consulted another attorney who told me that Preston Rezaee had not filed ANY response to the motion and that he had irreparably prejudiced my case with his irresponsible behavior. The other lawyer recommended that I file a bar complaint. I don't think that is a standard thing for an attorney to do to another attorney! I sent another letter via mail to The Firm and Preston Rezaee asking him to give me my money back and i wouldn't go to the bar about his misconduct. No response. When I hired a new attorney to clean up his huge mess and try to get my daughter back at least, I asked him to withdraw from my case via email. Although no one responded to the email I was notified by the court 2 days later that he filed a motion to withdraw from my case because I WASN'T PAYING MY BILL. Of course I wasn't paying, he wasn't doing anything and couldn't even respond to an email! Not to mention the fact that he had collected $1500 and lied to me about filing paperwork and prejudiced my case. He may have lost me my CHILD. Preston Rezaee is a terrible divorce lawyer. He is irresponsible and unprepared and he doesn't deserve to have a license to practice law. I am filing an ethics complaint with the Nevada State bar about Preston Rezaee and disputing the charges with my bank and credit card companies. Due to his gross negligence I believe I will get my money back. But it would have been easier if he had been decent and just given me the money back instead of making my life harder. It's not like divorce isn't hard enough without sharks like Preston Rezaee around trying to take advantage of people who can't defend themselves. Preston Rezaee needs to learn a very important lesson though: you shouldn't mess around with custody issues. If you can't get 50/50 custody for your client then you are just a terrible attorney and a failure to anyone who invests their trust in you.
