Review by in Old Bridge, NJ
Project: Hire an Architect to Design a Project
Gary knew how to respond on the most efficient way to all our design requirements. He was able to produce an impressive look for our project complying with a rather conservative budget. Throughout the entire process he was very honest and accurate regarding the fees for his professional services. Do to his materials wholesale sources, we were able to save a lot for the completion of our construction project.

My husband and I were referred to Mr. Segal to be an expert architect witness in 2016 construction issue involving our home, by our lawyer who has used him before. (The case was not litigated.) We paid Mr. Segal the required $2,500 retainer to secure his services. We never signed a formal contract with Mr. Segal, and he never said that any unused retainer monies would not be returned to us. Upon closure of the issue by our lawyer, we requested unused retainer monies from Mr. Segal. Instead, Mr. Segal sent us a general itemized bill without dates of service, that was fraudulent. The bill equated to $2,625, and he said that because we were referred to him by our lawyer, that he would not collect the $125 over the $2,500 retainer we previously paid him. We explained to Mr. Segal that his bill claims that he spent 3 hours at our house performing work, whereas he only spent 1 hour 20 minutes taking pictures of our home during the construction. The first time he came to our house was to pick up the retainer money. He did not do any work. His fee statement (bill) states that he created a report for us which took him 8 hours. We never received any report, nor did our lawyer (and Mr. Segal charged more than the original quote for an hourly rate.) He claims to have consulted with our attorney and owner (us) for 2 1/2 hours. He did not consult with our attorney and only answered 1 email from us. He charged us $125 for printing, but we do not know what he printed because we never received a report or any printed documents. He provided no service to us or our lawyer other than when he came to our house one time to take pictures because we did not go to court and our lawyer did not need to utilize his service. We asked Mr. Segal for a $2,140 refund since the actual charges were an only 1 hr and 20-minute site visit (rounded to 1 1/2 hours), which should have been billed $360. He refuses to give us our retainer monies refund. We filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and he did not respond to the BBB with either of their attempts (total 4 weeks before our case was closed by the BBB). He is very unprofessional and does not recommend him.

Review by Vida L. in Dumont, NJ
Please stay away from this man. I contacted him for an estimate, he came to my house, proposed a plan, and asked me to hand him a check of $500, which I stupidly did, he measured my whole house, came back with a luxurious design that I could not afford, made me sign the design before disclosing the full cost of the design, I had an attic which I wanted to create a dormer on, this man created an expanded design just to increase the cost, after my repeated query on the total amount, he then had no choice than to disclose the final amount which will cost almost $8000 just for a dormer. Please do not hire this architect. I did not listen to the previous reviews on him, I wouldn't have found myself in such an ordeal.
Response by Gary I. Segal, Architect, LLC: This is an advise to this person: you cannot base your actions and conclusions on lies! Even the JUDGE ordered you to pay EVERY SINGLE DOLLAR you owe me, because all your accusations are completely NOT TRUE!!! Advise to other professionals: stay away from this person ! Even her name is not the real one! Sincerely, Gary Segal, Architect 201 788-4088

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
