This law firm represents tenants. If you are a landlord you are screwed. They use stall tactics to allow the squatter/tenants to remain in your property without paying rent for months. Each time I have gone to court, there is a different attorney. There is such a display of incompetence when an attorney comes to court but has no information regarding settling the case. They have to speak with their client. The whole point of coming to court is to be ready with information regarding getting their client out of your property. The attorney indicated that I was representing myself and he was representing the tenant/squatter; what difference does that make, either come to court with your client or be ready to discuss when the client can leave the property. It will never be the tenant's property and eventually they will have to leave. They always request a jury (another stall tactic). This is their client's second eviction; seems like a pattern. Landlords should have rights also. I rated them low because of their lack of readiness when appearing in court and stalling for time for the tenant. I am sure tenants love them.

Schiller Ducanto and Fleck is easily the most despicable law firm I have ever encountered. Of course they would want to drag cases out as long as possible to maximize their billable hours, but they do this so shamelessly it is amazing they haven't been disbarred. Attorneys like these are the reason why people hate attorneys!! Not one ounce of ethics or conscience in this law firm as far as I can tell. Schiller Ducanto & Fleck, though claiming to be a family law firm, apparently has no qualms with their talentless attorneys pretending to be qualified experts in trusts and estates law. Just another example of their willingness to exploit clients(even after the divorce is over) - although their deception and manipulation is almost impressive when you consider the total incompetency of the attorneys of Schiller Ducanto & Fleck in essentially every other aspect. It seems they have found their calling in taking advantage of their own divorce clients and their children. Run as fast as you can to literally any other law firm.
She's the most unprofessional lawyer ever. I wonder how she became a lawyer and continued her career this long. She uses inappropriate words quiet often, so I was very shocked. She doesn't have a right morality to help others. All she wants is money...... I really discourage people to go there. You’ll be wasting your time.
I am re-writing my review (which he asked me to do before trial, see below) to rectify a wrong. Avoid this man at all cost. He lies to clients, he's a raging alcoholic, the man is highly inappropriate and he just won't go away! I've asked him to stay away from me and my family multiple times through the last couple years (first ask was about two years ago) and yet he still finds a way to stop by and ruin my day. I wouldn't trust him if he were the last lawyer on earth that could defend me or a loved one - I'd rather go to jail. Read more about this shady character below, on google reviews (mine is the only one star) and on Avvo. Note that most of Sals reviews here and else where are all copy and paste by clients - he asks his clients to do this even before the case is over. Look him up and I'm sure you'll be able to match up the cookie cutter reviews. Sal took care of my legal issues ( half assed ) but managed to get entangled with my life in ways one should avoid at all costs. He's also a habitual liar and alcoholic. Even if you got a contract he will try and change it on you - ie you work out a payment plan that is clearly stated, but before the court dates he suddenly needs more money or the rest of what you agreed to make payments on. Seek better, morally sound legal aide elsewhere because it's not here.
Mr Bruneau has represented me on multiple cases over the last 20 years . He is a great asset to my business. I run a contracting business and unfortunately in the course of business these days you run into those who are not so honest and try to not pay you. Mr. Bruneau’s knowledge creative approach patience and creativity have been a big help in me remaining successful. He works tirelessly for his clients and treats every case as tho he personally has a large stake in it. No matter the case he has always gone the extra mile to ensure I get paid what I am owed .

Hired Joel for a divorce, he was not my first attorney. My ex is abusive as they come and he and his attorney refused to present any documents. Was they typical run up my fees to bully me. So when I spoke with Joel and read his profile I felt I needed a strong litigator. His profile was impressive - that is it. He is terrible, no follow through which is so important. I lost everything in my divorce due to him being unprepared. His fees are outrageous, he charges you every time he reviews a document if he actually reviews them. It was clear he didn't as he was unprepared, late to court and did not litigate anything. If you question him, he gets upset yells at you and blames everyone else. How was it my fault he was unprepared? Please do research on him prior to even talking with him...he talks a good game and he will say "Game Plan". He has sued well over a 100 clients as he will not even discuss his invoicing which is vague and in instances unethical by standards. Don't be his next victim. Learn from my mistake.
I paid Sal to handle a very easy eviction case 11 months ago and he has not done anything with my case. He has continued to not communicate, lie, cancel appointments, and steal money for no work. I am very disappointed!
This was one of the worse experiences of my life. I was in a very hard way this attorney agreed to take my case on a contingency basis. I should have run away if i knew what i was in for.If you are thinking about hiring this attorney allow me to give you the bullet points. CHARGES FOR EVERYTHING - Every paper, staple, copy and stamp. There was not a time i went to his office when i was not handed are bill that was demanded to be paid. Every single visit, every single penny. DEMANDING - You show up when he tells you to his office or he will not see you. If you have a job or have to travel it is not his problem. Be there or hes not your attorney. DOES NOT TAKE CALLS - Will not accept calls after his "office hours" for a client unless he needs something. I have a job I can not call during the day in the field. THREATENING - If you do not do everything his way he always threatens to drop the case and tells you to go find another attorney. In the middle of the case with a normal working class person this i scary.. COMPLETE LACK OF COMPASSION - Was told that my personal finances are not his concern. If I wanted to continue the case I would need to come up with the money he demanded. Ask friends or family was how he said to get the money he wanted. REFUSED TO INTERVIEW MAIN WITNESSES - I gave him the key witness in the case and he refused to take a deposition from him. He said this is who I am interviewing, if you want A deposition from someone else you need to pay 500$. REMINDING YOU OF HOW HES DOING YOU A FAVOR - I felt bad going to his office. He always told me how much he makes for 1 hour and that he is taking a loss for my case. He always reminded me of how little i was in his world..To top of everything YEARS later this attorney calls me on the phone because of a review left on a website. After i explained to him I did not even know you can leave reviews on attorneys, he begins to threaten me on the phone. I was very upset.
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.
