Las Vegas TCM Law Group, Thomas Michaelides , a true fraud, as he took money and never performed the work, and is at best shady. Thomas Michaelides was suspended for allowing his paralegal doing legal work. The paralegal, Matthew Katz , was arrested for Unauthorized Practice of Law, 205.390 – Obtaining Signature by False Pretense, 205.0832 – Theft by False Pretense Over $3500 by Nye County Sheriff. Photo of Matthew Katz, who has a law degree, is attached to this post since no photo of Thomas Michelides is not available. Thomas Michaelides, and his other paralegal Natasha Smith were made aware of Matthew Katz’ illegal conduct but ignored it.
