Dvorak & Associates, LLC Reviews

  • Feb 2, 2015

I was looking for an honest attorney to represent me regarding consumer fraud. I was a victim of consumer fraud. The company/person refused to return my property to me, and they sued me for $7,500. I initially hired two attorneys, both of whom took my retainer and did nothing. Both times I found out from the court I was represented pro se. The second attorney did not even show up for a hearing, and a judgment was entered against me for the $7,500. I hired a firm to vacate the judgment, and to counterclaim for the value of my property. I had a witness who was deposed for 9 hours. The firm switched lawyers on me 3 times, and in the transition lost important evidence, both from my witness, and also important prices realized related to the valuation of my property. I had not heard from Dvorak for over 3 months. When I called her office I was told she was no longer employed at the firm. In February, 2013 that Lori Dvorak indicated to her Ethics Committee that she did not abandon me, but she was locked out and could not represent me. Her firm told me she had my files when she left the firm, and could have chosen to not only contact me, but to continue to represent me. Dvorak did not even have the decency or ethics to refer me to another lawyer.

I was not given my legal right to have Lori continue her representation should I have chosen to do so. Dvorak abandoned me without even the courtesy of contacting me.

The day of trial I was refused a jury trial as promised. The day of trial I was told they would not use my witness that Dvorak deposed "because you know your witness and the judge will look unfavorable on it." I could not win my case without any witness. The judge said I should have had a witness. He said the Court could not award damages since my claim did not include bailment. His counterclaim was worthless. I lost over $100,000 in property and I was charged $57,000 to get a $7,500 judgment vacated. Dvorak could have prevented this action from taking place.

Dvorak was supposed to counterclaim at treble damages. According to the Judge, the Court could not award any damages since my counterclaim neglected to include bailment, and I should

have presented a witness. Please note that I have hard copies of all files, including all motions, and some sample catalogs and their auction results which were supposed to be have been used at trial.

I believe Lori Dvorak is guilty of unjust enrichment, as well as breach of contract. Her negligence and more importantly her abandonment caused the loss of my property valued in excess of $125,000.
