Poor job by Ankeny attorney Larry Handley

I had a huge problem with honesty regarding my attorney, Larry Handley of Ankeny, Iowa of the Handley Law Firm. He made serious errors in court (cost me thousands of dollars)for which he promised several times to adjust my bill, but he later went back on his word and refused. I had to file a complaint and finally the Attorney Fee Arbitration Committee forced him to reimburse me a significant amount due to his errors and inappropriate charges. He also misled me on whether it was mandatory for him to be present at a mediation, for which he charged me. I found out it was not mandatory as he had told me. He charged me for a meeting and phone call which never occurred, but he refused to provide a record or proof. I knew there was no meeting because I worked all day that day and have the record. Very poor representation, service, professionalism, communication and effort. Handley is also padding his online reviews himself, which is unethical and deceptive.

Advice to Ankeny residents and surrounding areas: Avoid Larry handley as an attorney. I had a huge problem with dishonesty, competence, effort, communication and service. He botched my case completely and then I had to take him to the Attorney Arbitration Committee to get him to pay me back for his errors and inappropriate charges. He is a perfect example of why attorneys have terrible reputations of being greedy and incompetent.
