My husband and I hired an attorney to handle our handle legal matters for our two businesses. Almost everything that he has handled has went bad. My husband was being sued for a deal that fell apart because of a homeowner and his company was in the right. The homeowner tried to attack my husband and his employee with a knife because he was drunk and in a bad mood. My husband refused to continue work because of this. They were trying to sue for 12,000.00 for a 10,000.00 job that was 3/4 of way done. Their lawyer told our lawyer that they would agree to take 5,000.00 and stay out of court. The man who attacked my husband was crippled up. Our lawyer said that if he came to the court house they would get the whole 12,000.00 becuase of sympathy. Well I found out that they did not think that we had a prayer after our lawyer told us to write the check. Then we had a man vandalize our other business and he served time. Because he violated his home detention he did not have to pay restitution and our lawyer told us to wait for a civil suit. Now everyone has sued this man and we were out 11,000.00 for repairs. We also sued the man who we bought the one business from for back bills that were his that the energy companies were trying to collect from us. We filed it and won and was to go to court for payment arrangements. I ran into our lawyer at the court house and he said that he would take care of the court date for 100.00. Now he is claiming a third. He also would not file anything esle that we could not handle ourselves because he says we owe him money. Right now from two lawsuits that we have won, he is collecting over 4500.00 and interest from these people that we told him to apply to our account. I told my husband that I feel that he has done us a great injustice and that he has misrepresented us in all cases. He also did not file papers for us on a response to a lien that we had for work done and the people filed bankruptcy on us and we lost 12,000.00. Now the only way we will get our money is to wait until they sell their home. Do you think we have a case against this lawyer or do we just have to grin and bear it?



lawyers take the money and run

Are there any honest lawyers out there? I am beginnig to think not. They are in it for the money, they don't care about defending the innocent anymore. Our family is falling apart because we trusted in a so called top lawyer.
If you have money they will try to suck every penny of it, out of you and then leave you out to dry. They say go to the lawyer review board but aren't they lawyers too?
