Las Vegas attorney Thomas Michaelides was suspended by the state bar again for allowing a paralegal do his legal work. David Ortiz, is an attorney, but appears was ran out of Texas so is now in Las Vegas working with Michaelides to bill people for attorney time while a paralegal does the work. This is simple fraud. I was a victim of this fraud. To no surprise Matthew Katz, Las Vegas who worked for Thomas Michaelides, TCM_Law_Group was convicted of practicing law without a license, see Nye County Press Release, https://www.facebook.com/nyecountysheriff/photos/a.512919192184594.1073741827.512916855518161/718202491656262/?type=3
Here is a quote from the Nevada Supreme Court about Thomas Michaelides and his unlawful conduct,
In re Michaelides (Nev. 2017) 405 P.3d 99,
“The profession was harmed because Michaelides’ breach of his duties regarding non-lawyer assistants, which allowed his paralegal to engage in the unauthorized practice of law, was detrimental to the integrity and standing of the bar. The record supports four aggravating circumstances (prior disciplinary offenses, pattern of misconduct, multiple offenses, and substantial experience in the practice of law) and two mitigating circumstances (cooperative attitude toward proceedings and remorse.”
Thomas Michaelides , TCM Law Group, has a history of scamming people by taking money and not doing the work he was retained to do and/or giving the work to a paralegal to do. He has been suspended by the state bar multiple times and is nothing else than a Las Vegas fraud. Very shady attorney who stole property and money from me.
Thomas Michaelides has been disciplined for stealing before, has a history of ethical issues, and can add theft as well in my case.
