I was in a very bad auto accident 9/2014. A woman ran a stop sign doing 35 and hit me. After meeting with John Bertoldo of Benson, Bertoldo, Baker & Carter, he assured me “it was a high value case” and would hire an accident reconstructionist to prove it. Months and months went by & I didn’t hear from Mr. Bertoldo so I figured he was working on my case. I began calling leaving message after message to get an update and got no response. Finally I was able to make an appointment and at the appointment he gave me a sob story about how overwhelmed he was because his partner was on medical leave and that after holding onto my case for a year already with doing absolutely nothing on it would have to withdraw. This meeting was in September 2015. | Months later I received a disk with all of my case info/correspondence with multiple letters from my auto insurance stating that they have made numerous attempts to reach Mr. Bertoldo to get all my medical bills and were going to settle my case in favor of the ‘at fault’ driver since they received no statements from me and my lawyer failed to respond to every phone call/letter they sent him to get my statement of the accident. | OMG!! I was initially given 10% of the fault & because he failed to do the job in which he was hired, I got 100% at fault!! The settlement was paid out in June 2015, months before I had the meeting with Mr. Bertoldo and he said NOTHING about any of this!! How can a lawyer do this to their client and get away with it? I walked away with nothing but a stack of unpaid medical bills. To add insult to injury, when I discovered this, I tried contacting my insurance company and they wouldn’t talk to me because they never received a withdrawal letter from him. I left Mr. Bertoldo several messages to send the withdrawal letter and once again…was met with silence!! MR. BERTOLDO AND HIS CRAPPY LAW FIRM ARE THE WORST EVER AND SHOULD BE DISBARRED!! If I didn’t know any better I would think that it was all a conspiracy with the at fault driver to screw me over!! | I could’ve negotiated a settlement for myself and came out with something instead of absolutely nothing and now I have a wreck on my record. You’ll be sorry if you ever hire them!! They should be shut down for malpractice!!
