The lawyer could be guilty of malpractice, if you relied on her advice and it got you into trouble. You would first need to file a bar complaint against your attorney, with the Connecticut Bar Association. After, you would need to file a civil lawsuit against her, to recover damages. If the advice she gave you was 100% wrong and the proper answer could have been obtained and you could have avoided arrest, if your attorney did some simple research, you could have a valid claim.

Know the arrest officer did not show me the arrest warrant. was that wronfully done too?

Expert:  CrimDefense replied 7 years ago.

Failure to show you the arrest warrant, would not be grounds for a dismissal. However, if the warrant was not valid, then you may have a possible claim.
