    Attorney Andrew Bluestone induced our trust in consultation and by the certifications he boasts and representations he makes through his website. Having been lured by these factors, we found attny. Bluestone to be anything but competent or trustworthy. Once he received our retainer check, he intentionally withheld work on our case, disregarded our communications and left our case to stagnate through deadline. As bad, he falsely billed us and became abusively defiant when asked for an accounting.

    Our experience is that Bluestone is a dishonest disturbingly abusive, malicious individual. He withheld work on a court-ordered deadline, intentionally, to compensate for agreeing to reduce an inflated invoice. When we discharged him, he refused to return the retainer treating it as non-refundable, and fabricated a fraudulent bill to justify misappropriating it. What little work he did do in the beginning was found to be sloppy. Bluestone is a discredit to the profession. He is being reported.
