Criminal, Lawsuit & Dispute, Accident & Injury, Immigration Law firm


"The Baez Law Firm (BLF)'s negligence, incompetence, appalling lack of due diligence, and total disregard for client's interest and fee agreement terms got me a first degree murder conviction and sentenced to life without parole.nnBLF represented me as lead attorney by pro hac vice in a 1st degree murder case from Feb 2017 to Feb 6, 2018. It was by far the worst pretense of a legal representation I ever had.nnINACCESSIBILITY: Despite costing me $295,000, Jose Baez spent no more than 2.5 hours total discussing my case with me throughout the entire case. All combined calls and visits totalled under 2.5 hours.nnREFUSAL TO RETURN DISCOVERY IN BREACH OF CONTRACT: BLF refused to return any of my discovery, esp. some hard drives I repeatedly requested be returned to my family after trial. It is intentionally and maliciously depriving me of my own discovery because it knows the drives contain my life's work for 20 years in them and are important to me, and 2) it wants more money and is using the drives as leverage.nnVIOLATION OF ATTORNEY-CLIENT PRIVILEGE: On 10/12/17, the firm disclosed to me in a private meeting details of murder confession from famous high-profile client & others from the past in an attempt to pressure me to confess. He said everyone confessed, and told details of past clients' confessions. Given this practice and my complaint, it's likely BLF will violate my attorney-client privilege too.nnBLF'S NEGLIGENCE RESULTED IN KEY EVIDENCE THAT SHOULD'VE BEEN KEPT OUT BEING ADMITTED: Per Rule 16, all discovery must be provided at least 35 days before trial. As of 12/20/17, my trial date was 1/16/18. 35 days before trial was 12/12/17. On 12/13/17 (34 days before trial hence too late), the DA sent new discovery that was key to my conviction. Also, since the last time I waived time for speedy trial purpose was 7/14/17, 186 days before trial, the DA and judge would not have been able to postpone the trial for purpose of admitting this new evidence if I refused to waive time (at least not without providing good appeal grounds).nnOn 12/20/17, I called Michelle Medina because I knew I'd be asked to waive time on 12/22 and wanted to know what was in the 12/13 discovery. Michelle told me it had nothing harmful, and to waive time on 12/22, so I did. In Jan, I learned there was DNA evidence in that 12/13 batch, whereas there had been none previously. When Michelle told me there was nothing harmful in the 12/13 discovery on 12/20, she had not even looked at that discovery. She simply lied. This key evidence could have been kept out had my attorneys not been so negligent.nnCONFLICT OF INTEREST: When Jose asked how much I had for the case, I said $300k including expenses. He was happy to take the case for $300k with expenses included. When I asked to separate attorney fees from expenses in the contract to avoid a conflict of interest, his solution was to specify attorney fees of $300k, with the last $25k due at end of trial and the verbal understanding (in a recorded phone call dated 1/4/17 available in my discovery) it would be waived if we lost. He capped expenses at 20k, after which the firm would be responsible. Once I paid the 20k in expenses, of course, the BLF did not want to incur any expense for my case and continued to pressure me for tens of thousands despite the contract clearly stating they were responsible. They used my 20k in reckless travel expenses, staying at the Broadmoor at $1289.93 per night for weekend getaways without even visiting me at the jail. Jose wanted to pocket the rest of my money. This conflict of interest was unethical and greatly impacted my case. Defending a murder case without calling a single expert witness at the trial out of greed is preposterous. When Jose found out about a check for the sale of my car during trial, he tried to have me sign it over and even got the judge involved as damage control when I refused and kept his letter as evidence.nnBLF is extremely dishonest, greedy, shady, unethical. They did the bare minimum work, represented me very incompetently, and got me a life sentence."
