As promised, I will provide you a line by line response below:
I don't believe you paid close enough I attention to all of the information that was given to you. First, the lawyer never set up any appointments...he had only given her the times that were available on that tuesday.
That is not really the attorney's position to make appointments--he provides times and ensures that the person complies with that schedule.
Second, the clinic that we found was a reputable one that actually used the same lab as the clinic he set up with...we were trying to get it done sooner. But when he refused, she never argued about going to his clinic choice.
Then so far I am not seeing the issue other than to comply with visit request.
Third, he told her at least two times (that I know of because I was there and heard it myself) that he would let her know when the test was in and she could call the clinic and set up the appointment for when she was available...she even asked him, to make sure , if he was the one who made the appointment, and he said no, that she could make it . So, there was never any avoidance...we were actually trying to get it taken sooner.
So far I understand and am on the same page with you.
And he only told her about the two appointment times on that tues that were available, so She never missed an appointment as there was never any specific set appointments made by the lawyer. she set an appointment time that was convenient for her schedule like he told her to do, at the clinic he chose, and was at her appointment on time and had the test taken. she followed everything he told her to do, never avoiding anything. therefore his actions and threat have no validity and were uncalled for.
My apologies but this is where I politely differ with you. Whether he was rude or not is not at issue but an attorney does not have to be polite to his clients--he has to show respect and deference to the court and opposing counsel, he has to zealously represent the best interests of his clients, but he has no obligation to be 'nice' about it. I agree that it would help but if you file a complaint on the fact that the attorney was rude to her and told her that if she misses the time, he would have to report her, the county bar association would simply dismiss it. That is where you can file, but it is not going to go anywhere because from your facts there is no actual violation of any duty that this attorney would owe to your daughter.
so you never did answer me by considering all of the information because you didn't read it thorough enough to get the right information.
That is your right to believe so, however I am trying to politely show you the contrary--I have taken the facts provided into consideration. My difference is that I am doing it from a position of a neutral observer and not an advocate for one side or another--that is why I am seeing whether something is feasible to pursue or not.
now, as for the other part of this, you never did tell me how to go about reporting the issue.
This is not a violation under the state rules on professional conduct. Misconduct is reported to the county bar association where the attorney practices, but this does not violate the county and state bar rules.
all of this considered is what led me to the rating that was given. the only reason i didn't choose the worst one is because you at least responded, and very timely. but maybe that is the reason you misconstrued the information...by not taking enough time to really "listen" to what you were reading. by the lawyerlawyer aware that
I hope that you see that not only did I respond timely as promised but in detail. Please understand that from perspective it would be extremely easy for me to tell you what you want to hear--that this attorney was terrible and should be reported. That will garner me a positive rating and will provide you with satisfaction. The problem is that the answer would be wrong, you will end up reporting the attorney, the bar will dismiss it, and you will be angry for being led astray. My own professionalism does not allow me to do so--I cannot tell you a law exists when it does not, or a regulation assists you when it does not.
