Do your homework before you hire this Attorney

Please be careful before you hire this attorney. She will tell you she will file motions for you and then on the day of the hearing you will find out she has only done half the paperwork, and the motion is not even heard. This happened to me twice, and the Judge didn't hear the requests, but I still had to pay her. After the last hearing she told me they were unreasonable requests anyway so the Judge wouldn't have granted them anyway. I don't understand why you would suggest to file a motion that you knew would be rejected. Did she just need the money??? What was really odd to me is my soon to be ex spouse is in Pro Per and is showing up to court with better paperwork than this so called Attorney produced. Be careful before pay her money. I had to go hire another Attorney to finish up my case, after she did nothing for a year until she filed a incomplete motion. I hope this information will help someone, and not making the same mistake I did.

Ronda middleton family law dishonest, rip off

After paying Ronda Middleton Family Law over five thousand dollars to handle my custody case and child support matter I ended not only losing custody of my daughter but also i am now on the hook for garnishments, driver's license suspension and probably i will never be able to get a passport. all due to the greed, incompetance and arrogance of ronda middleton who is mostly interested in lining her own pockets with her clients trust fund money to pay for her own mistakes. middleton will not return my phone calls and she will not return the trust money I gave her to work on my case. no billings were received and no accounting for time spent. Ms middleton: is that cause you did not do anything on my case? or are you too lazy to produce any time records showing what you did? Most likely you did nothing except take my money. Did you charge me for the time you were sleeping on the bench outside room 61 and the opposing attorney had to wake you up for the hearing? Did you charge me for the forms that were filled out wrong and the court rejected them? Why don't you reimburse me for my time and fuel to go to your office eight times and you were not there? Just give me my money back. You are such mess I seriously doubt you will ever be at peace with your personal life but to take me for a ride is not acceptable. I could file a state bar complaint but if they yank your license you will be even more broke and will never pay me back. Just to let you know the judge and my new attorney will get me a new trial but i lose all my months in arrears.

My business partners required CA State Bar Attorney Complaint Form a few weeks ago and discovered an online service that hosts a searchable forms database . If you need CA State Bar Attorney Complaint Form too , here's http://pdf.ac/7xGICa

Interesting that the slander/libel lawsuit that was filed by Ronda Middleton had yet to be heard. You would think that she could prove he case in a court of law.

She claims to be a competent attorney, and then at the same time cannot seem to complete her own simple case of slander.

Or is it that she just gave up on it?

The case is still open, and only a jury can decide if she really is as bad as her prior clients/colleages say. Unrebutted, I will have to take them at face value.

Not a good idea to get a referral from that network. Better to talk to someone who has personal knowledge of the individual. Hope you have solved your problem and hope your boyfriend can get his money back.

She did the same thing to us. I met her at Team Referral Network.

Gave her a referral of my boyfriend who was going through a divorce. She literally took his money and did nothing. Never returned phone calls, we couldn't get a hold of her. They had a set court date and a week prior she tries to get more money from him and change the terms of their contract.

He obviously didn't give her any money because we gave her $2600 and she didn't do anything. To add insult to injury, she hit on my man.

Tried to get him to take her out for drinks. She has no ethics and is completely unprofessional.

I was cleaning out the portables in back of the courthouse where there was repair work being done--- sure enough it was Ronda Middleton puking her guts out from a night of binge drinking. What a mess--- had to get my crew to clean up that one!!

MS MIDDLETON

your lawsuit threats don't scare me, due to your selfish arrogance and incompetence I HAVE LOST EVERYTHING. Your lawsuit will not stop me until you are DISBARRED and out of business. Then you will not be able to hurt others!!!

I will see it through that you get what is coming to you. JUST WATCH!

I will never stop at filing lawsuits against you and you WILL regret you posted these lies against me.
