“He quit our job and requested full payment. We went to arbitration which wasn't fair and he was awarded 1/3 of payment due. Stay clear of this patent attorney, its not worth dealing with his unreliable work.”
Freelancer Feedback Comments for Client:
“RUN RUN RUN from this Sociopath, he was liar from first minute all the way through arbitration and he still LOST.
He wanted to market his infringing product which was someone else''s trademark rights to make his own money off their product idea and name. That is called INFRINGEMENT! All my work is on PMB and always in writing, it is all there.
I just hate to see an evil elancer like this intentionally trying to get FREE WORK on elance. I was hired at 11:00pm as RUSH trademark job. I proceeded with clearance search for BOTH registerabiity and infringement. On infringement end of search process it was discovered the same name and product he wanted was used by someone else selling on Amazon. A MAJOR hit.
He was told he could NOT USE the name and why. He still refused to believe this analysis. I told him I could not clear the search at that point and he could not use the name or trademark the name, again he was angry to hear this, but that is exactly what I was hired for DUE DILIGENCE of trademark clearance. He then stated I was "shopping on Amazon" at my pleasure? As is always my refund policy, I stated I had spent $50 worth of time so far, and the rest I would refund $85. He REFUSED the refund and wanted all the work, several hours of rush work, he wanted it for FREE!! Why would I work for free? Once again, he was mad he could not use his trademark. He uploaded fake schematics of his product when I asked for photos, his was exactly the same as the person''s product he was infringing upon! He clearly copied them!
Of course I''d win in arbitration, got exactly what I offered him in beginning $50. He added many more hours of petty emails, so I filed elance dispute and then I filed arbitration, ALL WAS INITIATED BY ME.
It really doesn''t matter as I am sure he will still try and market his infringing product only to get sued in Court by the other company who will find him, he clearly is not an ethical or even nice person. He''ll be banned from elance shortly.”
