Dear Sir: I have spoken to a few attorneys in this field. A few that do Legal malpractice for attorneys felt I had valid claims that would likely settle.
A few that did this for plaintiffs didn't want my case due to it being "uncertain" that we could prove I would have lost because of his actions. My 18 complaint document shows some real negligence, and the attorneys who read it were horrifed by his actions. [I should add I learned that he had been quite ill with surgeries and a divorce during my representation, but I didn't know that at the time, or would have been kinder in even waiting longer].
Unless you can tell me someone you would suggest I call [and I have looked online, etc, and distance from Erie also seems to be an issue] I seem to have no choice but to place a bar complaint, however, this gives no financial compensation to a million dollar salary loss. Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX(NNN) NNN-NNNN cell
Dear Attorney, Although I have spoken to a few "bar associations" referral lines, this generally has not been given to assist in truly understanding either the competence or whether the atty does Legal Malpractice work for the plaintiff [most of these firms deal with the attorneys or professionals themselves] Can you possibly give me a good name, I would deeply appreciate it. My husband and i are very disheartened by what was done to both from our own attorney, as well as the surgeon. Thanks, Carla M
Hello, sir. I feel a bit apprehensive filling in the "ratings", only because the disclaimer said that each time I fill in, that I am charged. I wasn't sure if that meant another $60 each time I evaluated your answer, so called but they said that wasn't the case. Still, the disclaimer pops up. I did order a form to file this complaint on the attorney.
I have never been so disappointed in my life as with this case with this attorney. I don't know that I can make enough of a certain case for certain to go through so many painful more years.
Thank you for your advice!!! Carla M.McKrell [my husband is an orthopedic Dr. as well, and he is saddened by not only the atty but the surgeon who errored. ]
