Her clients’ reviews are the story of her demise:
“Marilyn Bierer is an abusive alcoholic who charged a fortune and yelled at me constantly,” says former client “J.W.”; “Dishonest, hotheaded, and unethical,” says one San Diego mom who paid her tens of thousands of dollars and got creamed. “Marilyn Bierer and Associates not only got spanked, they got spanked by opposing counsel that doesn’t practice family law at all,” says the boyfriend of a client of Marilyn Bierer.
“This atty is the WORST OF THE WORST!!!”
says former client Dana H. “Marilyn was misleading and confusing at all times. She was manipulative, dishonest and unethical. She was very rude and unprofessional. I don’t recommend anybody to work with her.” says Sunny L.
If there was ever a more unprofessional, disorganized, rude, and basically incompetent atty that has ever existed, you’d have to search far and wide to find that person. . . . Hire this atty if you want to piss off your other half, turn them into a bitter enemy and spend lots of money and time. “
Says “P.T.” “All they care about is money and not helping their clients. Worst experience ever with an attorney. Never again would I use or suggest her services to anyone.” says Chris B. ” I’m not prone to writing complaints and for the most part I give the benefit of the doubt to others. However, my experience with this attorney was terrible at best. Marilyn’s office staff is acceptable, however, Marilyn is as rude, uncaring and impatient as any human being I have ever come across.” says Scott S. “My ex hired Bierer a few years ago and fired her after she spent about a hundred thousand dollars and got ripped on every motion. It all ended
when Bierer had a meltdown in court-screaming at the judge and my attorney. The judge had to order the bailiff to restrain her. He shut down the courtroom–angry at Bierer–and ordered everyone to clear out and “cool off.” Boom-Bierer fired the next week, but still harassed my ex to pay he bills. Shocking she’s still in business.” says Cole S.
It’s hard to imagine that lawyers with reviews as bad as San Diego’s Marilyn Bierer and her firm Bierer and Associates would still be permitted to practice law.
Says “Damon D.”: “Marilyn was terrible in my divorce. I wanted a peaceful and fair resolution–no drama. Marilyn repeatedly went “off the chain” to attack everyone–including the judge! She’s a drunk bull in a china shop. Fired her after she blew up in court, throwing papers at the judge and lost a ton of custody time. This woman is a nut case.
Would you license a hospital with a “fair” overall rating? Pay a dentist $100,000 even though dozens of his former patients rate him “terrible”? Approve a veterinarian who carelessly kills people’s pets regularly?
So why do divorce lawyers get away with defrauding, extorting, and abusing their own clients?
Because we let them. True, folks, you and me. We let them. Now let’s start with their capacity for competence–in most cases, almost nil. Bottom of the barrel. Now add onto that their capacity for ethics–again, nil. If you think politicians lie for a living, wait till you spend a day in family court. Do judges make them behave–as they should? Dream on.
Finally, let’s examine their motives–helping kids? Helping fellow citizens through a difficult personal transition? Adding to respect for the rule of law by behaving by its strict standards?
Guess again, but before you do, go take a look at your divorce lawyers $100,000 luxury car and million dollar bank account. Guess where they got that?
It seems that people ‘expect’ divorce lawyers to be, well, greedy scum. Hire the worst of the worst, and that’s what you’re going to get. Yet instead of beheading them–which is what any sane civilization would insist upon–we shrug and “move on.”
So what can you do? California Coalition has a solution–First, educate yourself. All those terrible stories about what happens in divorce court? Don’t discount them–they’re true. Divorce court is lawless–you have no protections against fraud and extortion. The attorneys orchestrate it, the psychologists amplify it, the “mediators” and “evaluators” feed off of it, and the judges simply look the other way–even worse–participate in your rape.
It’s difficult to explain to someone who hasn’t seen it first hand, and easy to discount as a “one-off” bad experience, or “maybe she deserved it.”
But that’s not the way honest people do business. We obey laws–not lawyers, psychologists, or judges. Yet family courts rarely observe law, constitutions, or help parents achieve a new direction for their life.
If you or anyone you love is enduring such a debacle, share the wisdom of parents who’ve been through it. Much of that is captured at UpToParents.org–they have a YouTube Channel that’s easy to watch and will help parents avoid the many treacherous dangers in family court. And they’re free.
Second–screw ’em. These people are criminals. Outlaws. They disrespect the law and they disrespect our kind communities. “Outlaw” is an ancient term–meant to identify those who violated the faith of the community. By “breaking” the law, they denied it, and the protection it affords the faithful. They have “broken” faith, and they don’t deserve protection that those of us who abide the faith of law are privileged by. In other words, they deserve no recourse to violation of their property. Their liberty. Their lives.
If you know a divorce lawyer, you know an outlaw who deserves to be separated from the protection of the law–life, liberty, and property. Yes, that includes their wallets and heads.
If you know a “forensic psychologist” in family court, same deal–dead men and women walking. Outlaws.
Judges–even worse–charged with upholding law, they desecrate it. “Severance” from protection of the law–in all possible ways–has been the solution our societies have proscribed for eons. “Severance”: Still word today.
Finally, pray. They’ll need it someday. Maybe soon.
Good luck parents–avoid courts, lawyers, and psychologists, and get out as fast as you can!
Blessings to all.
