I initially went with pew law in order to file bankruptcy only to discover that this attorney had been disbarred about 2 months ago. I decided that I did not need to file bankruptcy and was requesting my money back. The new law firm that took over my account refunded the money I paid to them. However, pew law still owes me 1,360 dollars that they have stolen from me. Not good business practices.
User's recommendation: Do not go with them.
- Having to pay and not getting a refund
He lied to our face and took our money
We went to them with a problem, got handed a big fat bag of promises. Only to realize later that it was all lies. The man says whatever he needs to get that money and then denies it ... they have not only FAILED to solve the problem, which he said was EASY ... we are worse shape now, and it has cost us over $10,000 for making the mistake of trusting this fraud. Worst attorney on the planet.
After leaving a $1 deposit and my credit card in case I hired this firm I did some research that eve and found that the avg cost for a bankruptcy chapter 7 is $1500 total in AZ. Pew charges over $3000! After calling the next day (3 days to cancel a contract) I cancelled my agreement with them. Several weeks later they billed my credit card $366!!! I called my credit card to dispute it and at the advice from my new attorney (which charges $1500) I called the local bar association and wrote the BBB regarding the unethical practices of this law firm....and I find it amusing that this firm is suing an anonymous person...what an EGO!!!!!

MESA ATTORNEY SELLS CONFIDENTIAL CLIENT INFORMATION
A former employee Lawrence Pew (Pew Law Center) recently reported to the State Bar of Arizona that Mr. Pew is engaging in unethical predatory activities bringing inevitable harm to his clients. The employee, who wishes to remain anonymous, attests to witnessing, on many occasions, Mr. Pew selling personal client information regarding their bankruptcy filings, to Tucson bankruptcy attorney Matt Foley. Homeowners filing for bankruptcy and struggling financially are the preferred prey of Mr. Pew and Mr. Foley; a client’s information is purchased by Mr. Foley and often results in the client’s home being purchased by Mr. Foley or one of his personal acquaintances. The former employee has witnessed several of these transactions as they occur and states that this information commands a minimum selling price $500.00 !! Selling and otherwise transferring a client’s personal bankruptcy information is not only unethical, it is a willful violation of attorney-client trust. The State Bar of Arizona needs to stop this unscrupulous behavior and make the offending attorneys accountable for their immoral, disgraceful acts perpetrated against the clients who trust them. The Arizona state Bar clearly states that (a) A lawyer shall not reveal information relating to representation of a client unless the client consents after consultation, except for disclosures that are impliedly authorized in order to carry out the representation, and (b) A lawyer may reveal such information to the extent the lawyer reasonably believes necessary to establish a claim or defense on behalf of the lawyer in a controversy between the lawyer and the client, to establish a defense to a criminal charge or civil claim against the lawyer based upon conduct in which the client was involved, or to respond to allegations in any proceedings concerning the lawyer’s representation of the client and (c) A lawyer shall not accept compensation for representing a client from one other than the client unless: (1) the client consents after consultation; (2) there is no interference with the lawyer’s independence of professional judgment or with the client-lawyer relationship. Clearly, Mr. Pew has no regard for th
