I will be filing a BBB claim, and hope others who had similar experiences will as well. I closed on my house in August 2016 without issue, and January of 2017 I was contacted by Nicholas Sargent who said they "lost" my check for closing costs, and would like me to send a replacement check ASAP. When I questioned why they were contacting me 5 months later, he turned the blame on me and said I never sent a check. I spoke with the paralegal without giving my name, and she said that they would not have closed without the check in hand. I told Mr. Sargent that I had to check my records, but I was out of the area and would get back to him the following week, and he called my phone SEVERAL times a day, for weeks. I called M&T bank and complained, and he then stopped calling my personal phone and called previous places where I have worked trying to get information about me. I am upset that I am being harassed over something that I didn't even know occurred
I was mislead and taken for all my savings by Charles Messina. I left few bad reviews for him on Avvo and they keep removing them. I guess he paying Avvo to remove bad reviews.Charles Messina is unethical and will take advantage of you in your weakest moments.All I can to everyone do not hire Charles Messina and if you do you watch your purse and your wallet.
I hired Chuck Messina for a divorce. It was a nightmare. He dragged my case forever by creating false problems and giving me false hope. Charles Messina ended up making thousands of dollars of off me. No concrete results for me. DO NOT HIRE - Charles Messina will rip you off.What a mistake by having Charles Messina represent me in my divorce. Charles Messina did a horrible job and took me for thousands of Dollars of my hard earned money. Do not HIRE!!! and Run, don't walk from Charles Messina.

OVERALL....AVOID THIS PLACE!!!.... DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME , OR MONEY DOING BUSINESS WITH THEM, STAFF MEMBERS ARE INCOMPETENT & USELESS, & DONT EVEN THINK ABOUT EVER TRYING TO CONTACT THEM BY PHONE BECAUSE YOU WOULD BE WASTING YOUR ENERGY TRYING TO CONTACT THEM MON-FRI & THEY WILL NOT RESPOND TO YOUR CALLS. DO YOURSELVES A FAVOR & LOOK ELSEWHERE.
Extremely knowledgeable thorough and compassionate. Plus timely communications. I Very Highly recommend both Tim and Susan.
You would have to be a fool to retain this firm for anything except a Kangaroo court. Mr. Sargeant and his employees made.multiple mistakes with our sale, done by proxy and long distance. Ultimately, his firm's oversight was directly responsible for the omission of $1100/of fees payable to us. When contacted about his firms errors, his solution was to deny, blame others, and become pugnacious. The review above about yelling is completely realistic. I have never in my 50 years and dealings with dozens of attorneys, met anyone and unprofessional as Mr. Sargent and his employees. They represent the worst of his chosen profession and the term ambulance chaser is appropriate. We are sorry we hired this firm and suggest, in the strongest possible manner, that you find alternative, more professional, and better representation for your needs. Caveat Emptor. You get what you pay for and this man and his firm are best placed in the discount rack.
I used Godwin Gilmour & Hurley for a DWI arrest. The arrest was illegal according the law firm but was unable to prove the illegal arrest. They couldn't even find out if the conviction would transfer to the state I lived in which I found out with one phone call. They put little to no effort into my case. DO NOT USE THIS LAW FIRM!
Choosing the right vet for your pet can be tough. After all, your furry friend can't tell you how he or she feels about the doctor. Even though you're not the one treated by the vet, whoever your animal sees is obviously your decision. Since many veterinary diseases and injuries can turn into emergencies very quickly, it's important to have a go-to vet. This way, you can ensure you'll know whom to see when your animal needs care.
Speak to your friends and family about vets who've treated their pets. You can even talk to your groomer or an animal shelter worker for referrals. When you visit the clinics you've been referred to, check that the facility is clean, animals are separated and the staff is calm and courteous. Not all clinics are American Animal Hospital Association accredited. This accreditation isn't a legal necessity, though a clinic that's AAHA-accredited is guaranteed to offer high-quality medical care. To receive accreditation, the clinic has to meet the AAHA's standards in the areas of facility, equipment and quality care.
If you're looking for a specialist, you want to make sure he or she is board-certified to practice in that specific area of animal medicine. You'll want to make sure your vet is also convenient to visit, so there are factors to take into account.
The type of animal you own should play a part in which vet you choose as well. While your options are vast if you have a dog or cat, you may have to visit an avian clinic for your bird or an exotics clinic for your snake.
Just as there are many types of doctors, there are many types of vets. Some focus on livestock or house pets, while others may specialize in dentistry or surgery. They may work in a veterinary clinic or zoo, working specifically with the animals housed there, or travel to farms to work with livestock. Since horse racing and other equestrian activities are so popular, some vets are trained to work just with horses.
Diseases, like malaria and yellow fever are also transmitted through animals. Some vets have insight to diseases that affect both humans and animals. Vets have contributed to the treatment and cure of many diseases that plagued both humans and their furry friends.
Government agencies employ veterinarians as well. When an animal comes from a foreign land, these vets quarantine them and check for any diseases that may be present in an effort to control new diseases that can be brought into the country. Other Specific types of vets include:
A vet assistant works alongside the veterinarian and helps out around the clinic. In some cases, they may assist vets in surgery or restrain struggling animals during tests or lab work. The everyday duties of a veterinary assistant include; monitoring and caring for animals after surgery, keeping medical records, cleaning animals' teeth, feeding and bathing them, cleaning cages, sterilizing surgical equipment, giving animals medication, collecting samples for testing and performing laboratory tests, and offering grief counseling to pet owners.
It's a good idea to bring your pet to the vet regularly. This way, he or she becomes familiar and comfortable with the care providers, and you can stay on top of your pet's preventative care. If the animal is small enough, bring it to the office in a carrier. Just as you visit the doctor for a yearly check up, you should bring in your pet for regular check ups as well. During a routine veterinary visit, the vet will probably begin by asking you if there have been any changes in your pet's behavior or habits.
The vet will then take your pet's vitals, like weight, temperature, pulse and respiration rate, and perform a physical examination of the pet. During a physical exam, the vet checks the abdomen for swollen organs, and the legs, feet and joints for any potential problems. Depending on the age, breed or condition of your pet, your veterinarian may also check the eyes, ears and mouth.
When your vet conducts a full body examination, he or she will check out your pet's coat and skin, noting any hair loss, itchy spots or lumps. Keep note of your animal's shedding habits so you can let the vet know if anything seems abnormal. The vet will check for parasites, fleas, ticks, mites and heartworms as well.
Vaccinations are also important to your pet, especially if you have a cat or a dog, and your vet will suggest that you make sure they're current. Keeping up to date with vaccinations can prevent your furry friend from getting distemper, rabies, hepatitis and lyme disease. Some vaccinations last longer than others, so speak to your doctor about staying caught up with your animal's shots.
Just like your own health insurance, you want to make sure your animal is covered before he or she needs veterinary services. Some common animal surgeries can cost thousands of dollars, and you don't want to end up having to foot a surprise bill that costs more than your paycheck.
There's no set price for pet health insurance. Costs can depend on factors such as where you live, the age and breed of your pet, and how much coverage you want. Before you take out a pet insurance policy, you'll want to meet with your vet to go over what he or she thinks your animal should be covered for. Many vets believe that you should make sure cancer, chronic disease, hereditary and congenital disease, and common breed-related medical conditions are all addressed in your policy.
Some pet owners can't afford insurance for their pet, so there are other options to make paying for surprise pet visits as easy as possible. Some pet stores have wellness plans - which tend to be much cheaper than an insurance policy - that offer shots, check ups, screenings and discounts on various procedures your pet may need. A lot of veterinary offices offer payment plans for pricey procedures as well, as long as you have decent credit history. For a last-ditch option, there are even privately funded organizations that offer pet owners financial aid for their pet's treatments.
