Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good afternoon. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. You have a few options. The first and easiest, is to contact the Florida Bar and file a complaint against this attorney. His conduct will be investigated and if there is a finding against him, he could have his licenses suspended or even revoked. Moreover, he could be ordered to pay you back. The second option would be to sue and file a malpractice claim. That would be based upon him improperly representing you and you suffering harm/damage, as a result. In addition, he he stole money from you, that would be criminal and you can file a report with the police.
Legal representation is outside the scope of what the side can provide. If you need legal counsel you can use martindale.com or the Florida bar attorney referral service
