Make sure you do thorough research before hiring an attorney. I made the mistake of working with Thomas Michaelides, part of TCM Law Group. The practice has been sued multiple times for unauthorized practices of law.
I was unaware of this before I discovered that my papers were being forged, and my case was never filed. Thomas Michaelides took thousands of dollars for me for a case that was never resolved. Once I discovered this he would not answer my phone calls or get back to me. If you have been in contact with this man inform the authorities immediately. He owes me $15,000.
