-Could you explain your situation a little more?Did you actually hire this attorney?
Who was the client?
MY NIECE WAS CIVILLY COMMITTED FRAUDELENT WITHOUT CAUSE BY THE PROSECUTOR REVENGE AND THIS ATTORNEY I AM REFERRING TO WAS PUT
IN PLACE TO MISREPRESENT MY NIECE IN ORDER TO DO THIS COLLUSION
AND CONSPIRACY WHICH WE CAN PROVE! THIS ATTORNEY IS CONTRACTED
BY THE COUNTY AND THE COUNTY CONTRACT REQUIRES THEY HAVE
MALPRACTICE INSURANCE BEFORE THEY WILL GIVE THEM THE CONTRACT?
WHY IS THAT? WE FOUND TODAY THAT SHE IS DOES NOT HAVE THE
MALPRACTICE INSURANCE REQUIRED! I THINK THI WOULD BE CALLED BREACH OF CONTRACT?
DearCustomer- Attorneys are not required to carry malpractice insurance but even if this attorney had malpractice insurance you would have no standing to sue for that cause of action since only the person who hires the attorney would have that right. This is more a case of attorney misconduct rather than malpractice and if you want to file a written ethics complaint you may do so with the Bar Association. Malpractice is when an attorney fails to meet a filing date or some other negligence that costs the client money and not when it involves collusion or some other ethical violation.
I have included the website for the Bar Association below and you can file your complaint with them.
WHAT IF SHE DOES NOT REPRESENT YOY PROPERLY THERE SUPPOSE TO
CARE ABOUT YOUR RIGHTS NEVER RECEIVED DUE PROCESS AND WHEN DOCTORS IN THE HOSPITAL TOLD HER THERE WAS NO MEDICAL REASON FOR BEING IN THE HOSPITAL? THIS ATTORNEY NEVER TOOK THIS INFORMATION TO THE JUDGE FOR A RELEASE HEARING AGTER 6 WEEKS MY
NIECE DID BECOME SICK AS THE DOCTORS TOLD HER SHE WOULD GET ILL FROM THE CONFINEMENT. THEY WROTE DAILY ON HER CHART "THIS HOSPITALIZATION IS BORDERING ON INTENTIONAL INFLICTION OF EMOTIONAL
DISTRESS.THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO MEDICAL REASON FOR THIS CONFINEMENT." THIS WAS MORE THEN MISCONDUCT THIS WAS LEGAL
MALPRACTICE BY NOT GETTING HER CLIENT OUT OF THE HOSPITAL. MY
QUESTION WAS THAT THIS ATTORNEY'S CONTRACT REQUIRED MALPRACTICE
INSURANCE IN ORDER FOR THE CONTRACT TO BE LEGAL? SHE HAS NO
MALPRACTICE INSURANCE SO WHAT IS POSITION OF THIS CONTRACT WITH THE COUNTY? I ALREADY HAD DISCUSSED THE LAWSUIT WITH OTHER ATTORNEYS!
FORGET ABOUT MY SITUATION PLEASE
OK LETS GO BACK TO MY QUESTION MY COUNTY REQUIRES THEIR CONTRACTED ATTORNEYS TO CARRY MALPRACTICE INSURANCE IN ORDER FOR THEM TO BE CONTRACTED BY THE COUNTY! THIS IS PART OF THE CONTRACT! SO IF A CONTRACTED ATTORNEY IS NOT CARRYING THE MALPRACTICE INSURANCE REQUIRED AS THE CONTRACT STATES!
WHAT THIS CONTRACT BE NULL AND VOID?
