Mathew Higbee of Higbee & Associates 2017 idiot of the year!
« on: November 16, 2017, 10:57:43 AM »
from the Higbee & Associates yelp profile:

Our speciality is offering low prices and outstanding service and results on a wide-range of legal issues, including bankruptcy, immigration and criminal record expungement.    We have 13 amazing attorneys and 60 dedicated staff members who are all eager to help you.   Our prices are typically 30% below what most Orange County law firms charge.

He doesn't even mention copyright in his services, yet he wants people to think he's this bad ass copyright attorney, when he clearly is not educated in said field..trying to extract money for an image that is not only linked, but one that would most likely be considered fair use.. so the question now becomes, how long before the yelp profile is changed to included copyright infringement...what a money hungry greedy a- hole this guy is..

Anybody want to throw a few bucks into a pool, on a dat the profile gets changed?? I say within a week..
Most questions have already been addressed in the forums, get yourself educated before making decisions.

Any advice is strictly that, and anything I may state is based on my opinions, and observations.

I have a few friends around here..

Well, you just know that some Higbee letter recipients might give him some interesting Yelp reviews.

If someone is going list themselves on Yelp, they better be prepared. Yelp has a reputation of strongly protecting legitimate reviews. If the Higbee operation gets too heavy-handed or vicious in their behavior, they might find themselves with some unhappy 1-star reviews.

However, it does seem he has scored some positive feedback in the non-copyright areas.

It's true that Higbee is not a intellectual property lawyer.  His main business is criminal record exspongement.  And his firm has gotten bad reviews for that business.  As far as my research goes, he's never taken a copyright case to trial.  No way in the world does he want to go there.

To be fair, if defendants choose to settle the case, there is no reason to proceed ahead to trial. 

Having said that, I am fairly sure they are highly motivated to settle with defendants also. There really is not much benefit to "go all the way" if you don't have to.
