Further, I do not need nor desire referrals from you.
After hearing about the work attorney Melissa Huelsman is doing in the foreclosure rescue-rescue business, I thought it appropriate to recommend her to a couple I’d heard about.
Melissa A. Huelsman
They are involved in a foreclosure rescue gone bad and are being evicted, losing all their equity in the process.
A couple months ago, thinking I was helping, I gave them Melissa’s number and suggested she’d be a good one to talk to.
No help whatsoever
They met with her and at least according to them, haven’t heard much of anything since. And although they continue to leave messages, their phone calls go unreturned.
Now, nine weeks later, with little time left and not hearing anything from Melissa, they’ve asked me to help.
I thought I’d start with Melissa.
Here’s my email . . .
To: Huelsman, Melissa
Subject: Weaver matter
Hello, Melissa Huelsman,
As you know, I recommended you and your office to the Weavers, hoping you could assist them in their foreclosure rescue matter.
According to the Weavers, you met with them and now, for whatever reason, refuse to return their phone calls. As you can imagine, they now are about out of time and need to hear from you immediately.
Please contact them to let them know your intentions. They deserve at least that from you.
I feel badly, having recommended you to them and you apparently not caring enough to treat them with even the most minimal respect.
— Joe Kaiser
And her response . . .
I will not speak with you about the Weavers or anyone else who has sought out legal advice from me. That would be a violation of the Rules of Professional Conduct and the attorney-client privilege. I understand that they have retained attorney xxx in Tacoma and you can contact her if you so desire, although she is bound by the same rules as I regarding discussions with third parties.
Further, I do not need nor desire referrals from you. You should absolutely recommend some other attorney to those with whom you speak and work, and never contact me again in any fashion.
— Melissa A. Huelsman

Obviously, she doesn’t care about people like the Weavers.
At least not enough to return their phone calls to let them know whether or not she’ll help. Apparently, in her book at least, it’s okay to leave people hanging, even if they’re on the verge of losing their homes.
And did I ask her to discuss their case with me?
Of course not.
I simply requested she return their phone calls so they can do whatever they need to do to save their home. To make it about me is beyond ridiculous.
Likewise, the venom spewed in her statement “I do not need nor desire referrals from you” is more than a little troubling. Clearly, she’s got issues of her own here.

But, my favorite line from her email, after thinking about it for the last 24 hours, is this . . .
Further, I do not need nor desire referrals from you. — Melissa Huelsman
Is it possible Melissa believes I recommended the Weavers go see her because I was interested in what Melissa needs or desires?
How goofy is that?
I sent the Weavers to her because I believed she could help them save their home, not because I thought she could use more business.
Excuse me for thinking that’s what she does.
Thanks for nothing, Melissa
If you happen to see Melissa at some Foreclosure Rescue Scam conference, Rob, please let her know I will never recommend her to anyone for anything.
And, even though she’s asked me not to, I contacted her again . . .
You are a piece of work, dear.
— Joe Kaiser
Someone’s got to help the Weavers, and that someone sure ain’t Melissa Huelsman.
