Attorny complaint


#1

Have you thought about contacting the NC state bar? I’m in VA, here you can file complaints with the state bar.


#2

Yes, I have and I have spoke with them took thier advice, and attempted to correct the situation or least protect myself, That made me realize I had been played by the system and attornies which they just billed me more for and the more I inquired the more the bill came too (3x). That is why I am asking if anyone has ever dealt with this type of situation before or maybe going through at this time. Maybe you can understand my board name. And what I really want to know does this become a my word against his word deal and then I recieve another bill from the attrony becouse I stood up for what I beleived was right/wrong in what they have done.

Here when you have a compliant about a attorney you go to the supreme courts and file a compliant for the displinary board. They should you some paper to fill out about your compliant and also a phamplet stating the steps of action they take once you file the compliant

Based on my experience, the crooked attorneys seem to outnumber the honest ones.

My new wife’s first attorney did some things that my wife told her not to do. For example, that attorney tried to take out a restraining order on my wife’s ex-husband. My wife told the attorney that she did not feel threatened by her ex-husband. That same attorney kept telling my wife that she was on the verge of “getting him” if just a little more money was provided. My wife eventually ran out of money and did the divorce paperwork herself and left most of the property to her ex.

That same attorney was the mediator in my divorce case. All she did was say that she likes the money from mediation work, gave a brief talk, and then went to her office while my attorney and my ex-wife’s attorney argued.

My ex-wife’s attorney has a political bent in her work. She thinks that men are always guilty, and I’ve been told that she was nearly disbarred due to “unethical behavior.” She was once asked by a preacher how she could tell such bold-faced lies in the courtroom. Her response was, “that’s how this game is played.”

A system that allows such behavior needs reform.

I agree with that last sentence. I wish people could pull together on that and let’s get something done! I would be more than happy to organize it, all I need is for people to contact me with stories like this. Let’s get started!!!

It is amazing that attorneys do this, but it is a fact. We have been lucky enough to find an honest, straight forward attorney. Mind you, the ex’s attorney is ruthless and boarderline unethical all the time. You should read some of his letters to us – first he sounds like he is two with comments like “what’s the deal pickle”? We read that and said “WHAT” are we in 2nd grade or do we all have degrees here. He is also full of threatening letters. I guess when you can’t ethically or legally get what you want, you resort to threats.

I believe it is a two-fold problem – first, a lot of people accept these practices and second, some of the people that that go to law school did have an scruples to loose in the first place. Luckily, law firms like Rosen and the one we use seem to hold ethics above all else, which means we have ended up giving a little bit more than we wanted to for sake of ethics, but when we retire for the evening, we rest well knowing we played fair.

I go to bed every night knowing what I did was right but the sad true fact is it dosen’t really matter when truth is frustrated. I am attempting to not allow acceptance of this practice and bring light to what I see as acceptable in the system, The courts could put a stop to it all but will they doubt it, correct me if I am wrong but judges are lawyers brought up by the system. You get to the point where the attorney wears you down just like the former spouse!

Dear Disbelief:

Greetings. This is a forum for domestic law questions - so I am sorry, but I don’t have an answer for you. I would recommend that you contact the NC State Bar and possibly an attorney that practices malpractice. Thank you.

I asked this earlar and didn’t recieve any response so here it goes again.
What process is their to file a complaint for a lack of repersentation and what circumstance consitute such an allegation. False motions , lack of motions etc faliure to show before the court that sort of thing. Thanks

Also has anyone ever thought about this type of action against an attorny whom did not represent thier client?
(When I say did not represent I really mean did not, my wife really had two attorneys I just paid for one of them )
