Question of Crimes:
An attorney whom I fired several months ago, recently colluded with my new divorce attorney, and signed her name to a very damaging (to me) Temp Order - which I had not laid eyes on, no one had read it to me, or even told me that it WAS a "Temp Order." I lost use of my home and a lot of money because of this. It was a long Order that the opposing side excusively drew up. On the last page, on the blank line with my name under it, she signed HER name. Under her name, she printed: "Attorney For John A. Doe" (me).
Of course, I had/have not talked with her for months before she signed it, I had fired her for abysmal "service" - she had made me miss depositions because she hadn't even bothered informing me of them. It angered her when I fired her, so I assume that's why she had no problem signing an Order which damaged me. He (the new atty) may very well have paid her, also. (The reason my NEW lawyer did this to me, was, it turned out, that he and my spouse's atty are very close friends. He turned out to do several other illegal things to me, before I could find out, and fire HIM, also. VERY bad luck with atty's where I am..)
She (the previous atty), made no attempt to contact me on the phone, or via e-mail, etc.. to see if I agreed with it, or had even read it (or MAINLY if she had MY permission to sign it! The new atty was too cowardly to sign it himself, but he briefly called me beforehand and said that he had 'a simple, innocent "no-contact" order' that I needed to sign soon. He said it was "standard in most all divorces, just stating that both parties agree not to 'harass' the other." I told him I would come in a day or so and read it. Come to find out, that very day he put my previous, (fired) atty up to coming to his office and signing it. It was nothing like he said. Like I said, it was a damaging Temporary Order. After the prev., fired atty signed it, my new atty took it to the judge, and had him approve it. 100% FRAUD.
What crimes were committed here? To hell with the "Bar" - I'm going to the Police/Prosecutor. (I'm in MS.)
Would this be Uttering a Forgery? Fraud? Collusion/Conspiracy
? Surely an old attorney with a grudge can't just come sign a CONTRACT "on my behalf," and then pass it off to a judge as having my consent!
Right now, I'm not worried about Bar Complaints
, Civil suits, etc. I'd like to know what crimes were committed - by either/both of them.
