From The Author

My passion for writing Dispute It was birthed from my own experience, having labored tirelessly through the process of negotiating attorney refunds and filing a grievance petition with the State Bar of Texas. Along the way, I found that there was a limited amount of information available to help me, and the last thing I could afford to do was hire another attorney. Although I do not know your story, I can only assume that you fall somewhere on the spectrum of feeling frustrated, to downright violated. Trust me; I have walked in your shoes.

Respectfully Yours,

    ‘Dispute It’ is a great, easy to understand, step-by-step instructional on what to do, as well as the order in which to do it, when (not if) your legal experience goes south. What’s more, his game plan works no matter what your area of law or concern.
    Mr. Gilley also adeptly establishes that order really does matter. Think of a Big Mac. If you eat it the way it’s served, with the buns on the outside and the gooey stuff on the inside, it’s a good experience. If, however, it’s served with the mayo, tomato and lettuce on the outside of the buns, it’s going to be a hot mess. Accordingly, Mr. Gilley gives you the benefit of his own missteps, as well as the insights/efforts that reap the greatest benefits. As such, this book is must read/great guide to have BEFORE you go lawyer shopping, as well as invaluable source after you procure one.
    Bottom line, document everything from day one, since it’s virtually guaranteed you’ll be using those records down the road – be it for pursuing a refund, filing a Bar complaint, generating legal strategies and/or procuring replacement lawyer(s). The sad fact is, chances are overwhelming that your legal experience will go south in one way or another, since lawyers exploit our ignorance, whilst they inflate their bank accounts. This book, however, helps give lay people a leg up. And if enough of us have this information, we can collectively change the game.

    I thought the book was excellent and well put. It was just the right amount of information (this will keep the persons attention regarding filing on an attorney). It is step by step the process in order to go after an attorney for getting your money back. I wish I had some of this information when I was going through my deal with the state bar. I also liked how you spaced everything outlining everything and where to go to get the information you needed.

    My advice to people that are upset, frustrated, or feel that they were represented unfairly need to follow this book step by step. I had an issue with an attorney and she represented me poorly and basically stole my money and I almost lost my children as a result. Wouldn’t return phone calls, emails, and missed court dates. I won’t go into detail of the facts but,……I was advised by another attorney about filing with the State Bar to attempt to get reimbursed for money that I spent on a retainer ($8,500.00) and my attorney never did anything Not to mention the fees I had to spend for my new attorney in order to clean the mess that attorney created for me. I filed a formal complaint with the State Bar. Guess what? They opened an investigation. It is a long process but it is worth it. I was able to obtain half of my money back as they found (after their investigation) guilty of misuse of funds and being unethical. I, fortunately, did keep notes, emails, and phone records. I will say one thing…..KEEP A JOURNAL AND ALL DOCUMENTS OF EVERYTHING!!!….This book explains exactly what you need to do in order to be successful in getting a refund and having the attorney disciplined for their actions (or lack thereof). This book provides a step by step plan in order for you to do that successfully.

    I could go on and on about this…GET THE BOOK! I wish I knew half of what I had to find out when I went through my compliant.
