Update: The CCSO admits William Routsis worked with them to undermine his client behind the seems to score points with the court . William Routsis threatened me with “criminal libel” for this post and told me to take down this post by midnight and not protest his corrupt ass as I intend on doing – So I created a website dedicated to this asshole.
Be aware of Reno criminal defense lawyer William Routsis. This piece of lazy crap lies, and works bogus deals with the prosecutors and against his clients. I hire Mr. Routsis and needless to say, it was a complete waste of money. Mr. Routsis can’t even use a computer to write simple motions. I had to do all the work because Routsis who claims to be Buddhist is actually a drunk and was strung out on meth. He even had the face picking syndrome going on when I witnessed him on on of his binders. He yells at his clients and tells lie after lie to cover up his incompetence.He tore into a yelling rampage against his secretary for allowing me to enter his “office” (den indie of his home) when he was doing lines of meth and drinking beer with some street person.
He runs his office from his home, but he uses his brothers (John Routsis) mailing address to appear legit. Mr. Routsis sabotaged my case and worked with the DA to arrange a bogus “plea deal” to which fell apart and Routsis later acknowledged he was ineffective counsel.
We need to let every potential client in the Reno and Carson City areas that William Routsis is no good, he will steal your money and yell at you. He even threatened me and I had to call the Reno police about his behavior. We will protest this corrupt lawyer soon and file complaints with the State Bar and sue him for malpractice. A lawyer like William who fucks his clients is as bad as the worst judge and DA… At least we can have a profound affect of this fella by exposing the truth about his poor representation, lies and rip offs.
