Dear JACUSTOMER - I believe the attorney has a conflict of interest. Certainly there is an appearance of a conflict since the lawyer would have confidential information about you and whether he uses it or not is not the issue. I would file a written complaint with the Bar Association concerning this issue since you would be the party with the standing to complain. I have included the website below for your convenience.
How do I go about letting the judge know about all this and get the lawyer off the case? Thanks
I have one more question If I may. I will add a $20 bonus as well. My fiance does not have a lawyer. We are but humble working class and cant afford it. How then do we go about showing the judge the conflict of interest on our own. Thanks
