Alienation vs criminal


#1

There are ethical rules that prohibit attorney’s from having a relationship with a client. If that is happening she certainly needs to withdraw from representing your Husband. I do not know if she would be disbarred for this conduct, that would be within the discretion of the state bar. You can go to the North Carolina State Bar website to find out how to make a complaint against this attorney.

I do not know if a derogatory comment on a fax constitutes slander, but it is unlikely that it does.

My divorce is still in progress and I have found out that my husband is/was sleeping with his first attorney.He is still sleeping with her but she informed my attorney that she was going to have another attorney represent him.
-I do not know if she ever formally removed herself from this case.
-I would like to know if I have a case against her.
-Sounds unethical, I can I have her disbarred?
-Who do I call with the “bar” to make a complaint against her?
-She wrote a derogatory comment about me on the cover sheet of a fax transmittal, can I sue her for slander?
