DAVID C. STONE IS THE WORST ATTORNEY FOR FAMILY LAW, WASTE OF MONEY, NO RESULTS, ALL HE WANTED WAS MORE $$$! DO NOT RETAIN!!!
This shameless known as Attorney David Stone was hired to do a relocation trial between my ex-wife and I. He from the GET GO was demanding a $5k retainer. Long story short, he kept demanding more and more money ( In the end, I spent over $38k!!!) and he ended up LOSING my relocation trial and my ex got to move with my kid. He tried to put a different attorney on the case towards the end, and I felt that it was a very lazy move on his part, because he didn't know the case AT ALL!!! OH! To top it all off, I gave David a referral for my friends divorce and relocation and she forked over $35k!!!! She wasn't happy with the results either!!! The best part is, after the trial was over, he had some aggressive, threatening guy called me telling me "when are you going to pay your balance of $32k off??????? " DAVID STONE DIDN'T EVEN SEND ME A BILL, AND HE HAD SOME GUY THREATENING ME, TELLING ME THAT HE HAS CHECKED MY CREDIT AND HE WILL GET EVERY DIME THAT IS OWED TO DAVID???? DISGUSTING!!!! Attorneys like Mike David Stone should get their license taken away. He is very greedy, and doesn't care about your situation, he just wants money. One time, I emailed him, and in his bill, he charged me $397.00 to REPLY TO MY EMAIL????????? NO thanks! Save your hard earned money and get an attorney that can be fair and passionate about your case. I am going to the BBB and the California State Bar about his behavior and professionalism. After MY $38+k, and my friends $35K, he still tried to charge me another $32k??? SAVE YOUR MONEY AND TIME, GET A LAWYER THAT WILL CARE AND NOT RIP YOU OFF!!!
