Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
The employer cannot CHANGE a W-2, since the W-2 is filed with the IRS and those original forms can be obtained from the IRS as well as from the copies submitted with your tax returns from those years, which you have a right to request from the IRS.
At this point you need to make the request to the IRS for copies of your tax returns for those years, if you do not have your own with your own copy of the W-2 forms before they were altered. Once you have those copies, then you have grounds to sue the board as a whole and individually/personally (if you know specifically which board member did this) for all of these damages under the theory of fraud
, defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
As far as your attorney's conduct. If his conduct was inappropriate such as having an affair with opposing counsel, this is a violation of the code of professional conduct and needs to be reported to the PA Office of Disciplinary Counsel for the Bar Association and this can get him sanctioned. IN addition to that complaint, you also would be able to pursue him for malpractice if his conduct in your case did not recover the losses that you suffered as a result of the conduct against you. This would require you to use a legal malpractice attorney, but it sounds from what you are saying about his conduct of having an affair with opposing counsel alone you have enough to collect damages from the attorney for malpractice.
Legally, these are your options on this case to pursue your legal redress.
