Listen in. Find out how to deal with difficulties that arise between attorney and client.
Bankruptcy malpractice is a timely topic. There have been a huge number of lawyer complaints made to the State Bar against debt relief lawyers. Many of those
complaints deal with loan modification scams. Also, debt settlement schemes, and sloppy bankruptcy work. Legal consumers see the tragic results all too frequently.
You think you’ve got lawyer trouble?
There is a bankruptcy lawyer in California who has 810 separate client complaints filed with the State Bar.
In one recent case, a lawyer with 810 different client complaints was disbarred. That’s good news! The lawyer admitted he took illegal fees for loan modification services from clients facing foreclosure. He also admits he failed to provide clients with fee accountings. He also aided in the unauthorized practice of law. That happened by allowing non-attorney employees to meet with clients. He also let non lawyers set fees and perform legal services without supervision.
Our program will start off with a discussion of the hot button areas. Those topics will include unearned fees; over billing; failure to communicate with clients; abandoning clients; stealing client money; and trust fund violations. We’ll then throw the phones open to callers who are having lawyer trouble. Also, callers can ask the experts’ their opinion on any past grievance with a lawyer.
