Handley Law Firm

As a client, I was extremely disappointed with his performance, service, communication and effort. I give him the lowest possible rating and do not recommend him at all. I filed complaint against him with the Attorney Disciplinary Board and Attorney Fee Arbitration Committee. He caused me much stress, frustration, wasted time and money.

Update: The Arbitration Committee significantly reduced my bill because of Larry Handley's errors and inappropriate charges. He had promised to adjust my bill because of his errors, but he did not.

Attorney Larry Handley of Ankeny, Iowa has been trying to pad his ratings on many review sites by giving himself 5 stars and is obviously soliciting friends and clients to give him positive reviews to offset the bad ones. All of a sudden many positive reviews are popping up within a week or two of each other, when he has never had anyone but me give him a review before. I feel this is unethical, pathetic and phony on his part. I was a client of his and felt he did a very poor job. I do not recommend him.

How unethical, pathetic and phony for Handley to pad his ratings himself and with his friends. All of a sudden Larry Handley has obviously been having his friends write him good reviews on many sites to make up for all the poor reviews. He has even given himself 5 stars on several review sites to pad his ratings. All of my complaints are valid and documented. Handley is making a false statement when he says that all my complaints have been denied by different agencies. The Attorney Fee Arbitration Committee reduced by bill by $1700 because he misled me on whether it was mandatory for him to be present at mediation, he broke his spoken and written promise to reimburse me for a huge error he made in court, and he unjustly charged me interest while the case was continuing and our fee dispute was ongoing. He was "investigated" by his own friends and fellow lawyers, so there was no justice done. I strongly question the validity of all these positive reviews which have suddenly appeared at once. There were zero besides mine until the last few days. Handley was extremely poor in representation, service, communication and effort. He cost me thousands of dollars because of his errors in court. He promised repeatedly to adjust my bill because of his errors, but later refused. He also refused to provide records or proof of a meeting and phone call he charged me for which never occurred. None of the agencies I complained to required him to prove it either.
