Upright Law

UpRight Law offer a service stating they will find you an attorney for bankruptcy. State that they will help you every step of the way. For a few of 1800.00 and one you pay you never hear from them again!

Upright Law is SCAM! They are overcharging by 1500.00. I found out that I could have done the exact same bankruptcy by hiring a paralegal for 350$.

  1. DO NOT!!!!!!…….I REPEAT DO NOT!!!!!….Do business with upright law, they are liars, when you catch them in a lie and request a refund they hang the phone up on you. The stated that if i paid $210.00 i would be contacted by a Lawyer immediately and the garnishment would also stop immediately, so when the lawyer called me, he stated that, he can’t stop the garnishment until i pay the $2100.00 in full, i explained to him, that Sandra at Upright law told me that , you would stop the garnishment immediately, he went on to say that, they will not release my file to him until all money is received, so i asked him , if it was ok to call Sandra on the three way and he said sure, of course Sandra didn’t answer, left Sandra a couple of voice messages still no response from her, called this morning and she gave me the run around stating she did say that payment needed to be paid in full, so i asked her if they recorded the call and she said yes, so i said ok can you play it back? and then she said, you need to call customer service, the can help you, i will transfer you over their, so after she rushed me off the phone to past the bucket, i am now speaking with some rude guy that didn’t want to give his name and told me that, i would not be receiving a refund and hung the phone up on me. Upright law reps are rude and disrespectful, all i want is my money back because they wasn’t honest with me. I feel like they just took my money and said oh well!!!! They are wrong for misleading people and they need to be out of business!!!!
    I give them a NEGATIVE TRIPLE ZERO…….don’t waste your time and definitely don’t waste your money! with upright law!!!!!!!!! It should be against the law the way they treat customers!!!!

      I apologize for your experience with our firm and feeling misled by your consultant, ma’am. Though it may have been stated that this is the first step of stopping the garnishment, it is also stated in the verbal disclaimer that every customer must agree to that garnishments, evictions, etc. cannot be stopped until the fees are paid in full. That being said, I would be more than happy to help try and put you in a better position. Since I am unable to find your file through the information given, if you would like to talk, please email me at [email protected]. Again, I would love to find a solution for the issue at hand. Thank you. -Customer Service Manager

      I agree with you Mary. They told me my refund will take 30 to 45 business days. They are a rip off and should not be in business. The BBB should step in but no one will help me.

    3. Ryan P Byrd

      Been waiting for my refund since August 13 because I got tired of the attorney that they found for me would not communicate with me after leaving 3 emails and 2 voicemails in a 5 day period. I spoke with an agent named Jonah on October 16 who told me that he would expedite it and I should have it either Friday October 19 or Monday October 22. Saw no transactions on my bank statement on October 22 so I called to check it out. Jasmine was very professional and knowledgeable with how to handle the situation but informed me that i did not qualify for the expedited refund and that she would submit another one on my behalf. Originally I was told that this process would take 30 to 45 business days to complete. I have now been waiting for 51 business days (71 calendar days) now and just got told that it could take up to another week.

      I just docusigned to allow them to debit from my account $264 and am now wishing I hadn’t. How can I stop the payment? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.

  3. Better go through with your bankruptcy.

    Just a couple of things to report about Upright Law.

    First, the fees are 1500 to the firm plus the filing fee for the state which you live in,

    Second,

    If you decide at the 11th hour before filing, you will not get a refund. I was charged over 300 an hour for the local attorney and they charge around 280 an hour for services. I was given a breakdown of the services performed by both parties, but was too infuriated to hear clearly. I did hear the part where they claimed that they did over 1,900 dollars of “work” which came to roughly 4-5 hours (again, I was way beyond indignant by then to tabulate the “work” that they did). The local atty bills for every minute of calls to you, time on the bankruptcy paperwork, the whole nine yards.

    This is not explained at the time you begin the plan you agree to.

    They did say that they would return the filing fee of 335 dollars (that was on the 11th of June, 2018) but so far, it has not happened.

    The point is, it is better to avoid bankruptcy and debt management services by contacting the creditors yourself and haggling a settlement than to hire these thieves.

    I for one, will never trust a lawyer again.

  4. Fraud

    I sought to file bankrucpcy in Feb. 2018. I paid 400.00 to get started they wanted 1800.00 after a week of being harassed when i was going to pay the rest I told them I didn’t want them to represent me and asked for my money back. I was told needed to taled to a manager. I called everyday for two weeks asking to speak to a manager, finally someone called me back only to tell me i couldn’t get my money back but they will continue to represent me if i pay the balanced. I took my lost I knew at this point I knew this was a scam.

  5. Stay Away con artists

    Please stay away they got me for 350. Had 1 phone conversation with an attorney 3 hours away. The call lasted 5 minutes. Look into the firm the where sanctioned by a bankruptcy judge for 250 thousand it’s a sceme they got going on. Won’t return calls or money plz stay away don’t be dumb like me.

  6. Scam

    I hired them thanking that they were togoinghelp me turns out they over charged me and took my money.I called them and asked for a refund of my mony since theu didn’t do anything on my behalf .They told me that i could not get my money.I feel that is wrong for any one to do hard working people like that theu didn’t do anything to help me they should not be allowed by Law to keep anyone money if they haven’t done any work.

    1. Dennis

      Scam beware

      Please stay away there a scam. Will get your money and do nothing. They prey on people with financial issues. Please be warned go to a local attorney and do it that way. A FEDERAL JUDGE JUST SANCTIONED THEM FOR BEING A SCAM. FOr a company to take advantage of others when there in a time of hardship is awful. Please stay away read all the reviews they are correct 100%. All of us they took advantage of we need to file a civil action against them. Let’s all stay strong people and give them what they deserve. They think because they are a internet lawyer they can’t be touched let’s do this people we need all get up with each other and get them.

  10. UpRight Law is the best bankruptcy law firm you will find. They truly make it as easy as possible to make payments and then get filed. They are super communicative throughout the process and make it as easy as possible to skip payments if need be. You are even able to access your portfolio online and see how long you have left before you’re finished. It’s so much more of an enjoyable process when you have a team who truly cares about your wellbeing. The home office is great at helping when you need to get in touch with the local attorney, since they’re in and out of court all day long. I’m so happy to have gone with such an amazing team of people. Thank you UpRight Law!

  11. Wonderful Customer Service and Support

    UpRight Law has been an absolute godsend to me and my family. As a single mother, I was too depressed to deal with the fact that I owed tens of thousands of dollars in credit card debt. I called in one night just wanting information and I was met with an amazing energy, one that was inviting and warm and didn’t judge me for my issues. She was able to help me find a way to make a plan to pay off the bankruptcy, since obviously wiping away thousands in debt isn’t free. She explained to me thoroughly that though the bankruptcy wouldn’t be filed until the fees are paid in full, they would help me with the harassing creditor calls until then and start getting the petition prepared, which they did!
    The communication was amazing on every level. Whenever i had an issue or concern, they were able to address it right away. My partner attorney was also amazing and was able to help me get it filed in a timely manner once I was paid in full, which i ended up doing faster than I expected. Thank you so much UpRight! I got the fresh start I needed!

  12. refun

    go too a differnt company have vascualr problems had surgery and get more surgery I payed 1800.00 too you and seeing was not up too date getting stuff going you closed my case have creditor sueing me want a refund unless you open the case agin this month is bad cant pay anything this month

  13. Refunds

    Aweful. They do not want to refund your money in a reasonable time frame. They say it takes 30 to 45 business days. I’ve never heard of this in my whole 55 years on this earth. I’m really glad I cancelled my service with them. I think they are scamming people. DO NOT USE THEM.

  14. Upright law is horrible

    Do not use upright they are garbage. I was gonna use them but decided to go another route they told me it would be a week to refund my money Well now I’m going on two months and I can not get them on the phone poor poor service

  15. Suspicious the one good review is on the same day as reponses

    And the review is from “Maria R” which is funny since the person responding from UPright law says to email them at “mrahman”

    Such a terrible business that only their employee can leave a good review.

  16. I would not recommend upright law to ANYONE!

    Been waiting for my refund since August 13 because I got tired of the attorney that they found for me would not communicate with me after leaving 3 emails and 2 voicemails in a 5 day period. I spoke with an agent named Jonah on October 16 who told me that he would expedite it and I should have it either Friday October 19 or Monday October 22. Saw no transactions on my bank statement on October 22 so I called to check it out. Jasmine was very professional and knowledgeable with how to handle the situation but informed me that i did not qualify for the expedited refund and that she would submit another one on my behalf. Originally I was told that this process would take 30 to 45 business days to complete. I have now been waiting for 51 business days (71 calendar days) now and just got told that it could take up to another week.

  17. won't refund money

    I consulted with them and paid $300 down for what was supposed to be a free consultation. the very next morning I canceled my contract and my retainer agreement was voided and through docusign. My agreement was never signed and they never performed any services, I never talked to an attorney. It was not even 24 hours before I changed my mind and they have not refunded me my down payment which they should have never taken from my account once the agreement was voided. They are immoral and I would advise against doing business with them.

  18. can't get money back

    Do not use. After some pressure and promises from what I now understand was a sales person, I paid 2100.00 up front since rates for bankruptcy were going up nationally and upright was among the lowest priced per person on the phone. Nothing but problems since. Waited for name on attorney. Then waited for attorney. Called for a refund told they would only give back 900.00 because of all the work that had been done. What work?! Some customer svc mgr told me she would have my assigned attorney call me. By this time I was served with lawsuit. Called attorney and told don’t worry about it No need to show up in court. Well that didn’t go well. In the mean time this attorney dies. Don’t find out until I call. Again call upright for my money back or wanted an attorney of my choosing since I can been informed that some of the deceased attorney’s clients were being assigned to attorney I wanted. Upright told me they would look into it and call back. Next day receive call with the name of an attorney, not the one requested, who called and sounded great: this is what we are going to do, this is what you need.etc. Given instructions to do online bankruptcy questionnaire which hasn’t gone well. Now waiting to correct this issues. Problems contacting, not getting answers, etc. In the meantime the required class certificate has expired. It has been a nightmare and I feel sick with the thought that I most likely have lost much needed money. If I can help someone not make the same mistake at least I will feel a little better. Good Luck.

  19. SCAM. Help me to shut them down. Email me your story

    They only want your money. They are nice till you give them a retainer and sign the contract. They will not inform you that the case will be filed after full payment is made. Then they email you the contract. After you sign the contract you will not hear from them again. After two weeks I called them to get an update and find out as why my case has not been filed. Then they told me that they must receive full payment first. That would be 8 months from now. I needed help now. So’ I am suing them for misrepresentation and fraud. Please email me and let me know as how they scammed you. Email me your situatio to: [email protected]

  20. RIP OFF (REFUND)

    Well im still waiting for my almost 1900.00 check since September 18th well over the 30-45 days as promised. Im going thru all these terrible reviews about Upright Law Firm, And they are so Right.
    I have fell victim of Upright Law Firm. I been a customer of there’s since August 2017, Have had 3 Lawyers Cancel thru Upright Law Firm. I’ve spoken to Financial Department about a Refund and have yet to receive my monies from my case i set up in August2017. I called Upright Law Firm again today (November 27 2018) requesting more about my almost $1900.00 Check. Upright Law Firm repeated the same conversation we talked about on October 18,2018. I will not stop calling Upright Law Firm nor stop Writing Reviews until I receive my hard working money back. This is not a Threat this is The Truth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  21. Scam artist

    What I have to say is not pretty, upright law is a scam, my wife and I have been trying to get our money back from our bankruptcy fee’s. Upright law told me and my wife that it was mailed out on the 5th of Nov, tomorrow is the first, we still haven’t received our money yet!!!!! Where is our money???? I’m trying to be civil about it, but they keep giving us the run around. Talking about give it more time, I’m done with that !!!! We need our money asap!!!

  23. The worst company I have ever delt with

    My husband went to file through these people, I highly recommend not to! The gentleman that we spoke with told us the amount of money we needed to pay. We made the initial payment and when the lawyer called us proceeds to tell us we have to pay them 150 a hour on top of what we already paid upright law. Really???? That was never said to us at all EVER! So we called back to upright and they gave us the run around and tried to tell us there’s nothing we could do. They basically get to keep our fee when they didn’t do a dam thing for us. Are you kidding me???? They didn’t do shit for us. And now we have been calling for a refund and they wanna tell us they can’t do that. Well I said play the tape of our phone conversation and show me where any of this was said to us. Funny they don’t wanna do that. Such frauds I’m beyond myself.
