I worked with Thomassen Law Group in 2011-2013. This is a disreputable firm. In my dismissal letter to them, I cited language from California Law regarding deceptive trade practices. Thomassen accepted my retainer and ostensibly agreed to perform service. My principal creditor was and is Chase Bank. But over a year before my contract with Thomassen, Chase established a policy that they would not negotiate with third parties. So Thomassen accepted my retainer under false pretense, knowing that could not perform an agreed service.
Consumer Action Taken:
When I became aware of the scab, I contact Thomassen by mail. I speculate that Thomassen saw that I researched the issue, understood California statute, and could see that I knew their actions were illegal. I received a full refund of all amounts remitted, which included their retainer (which their sign up contract said was never refundable).
My unresolved issue related to something that dollar-wise is only worth pennies.
Their contract said they were establishing an escrow account for my payments. That was a lie. All my payments landed in their general account. The account they use to operate the company. They are vulnerable if anyone is intent on disrupting their business. They illegally comingled company assets with client payments that were legally required to be segregated into dedicated bank accounts on the behalf of the client.
