Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
I am sorry to hear that. My suggestion would be to file a grievance with the California bar. They can investigate and punish him if they find any unethical conduct on his/her part. Here is the link. It is a free service. http://www.calbar.ca.gov/Attorneys/LawyerRegulation/FilingaComplaint.aspx
Most attorneys do not even an inquiry by their state bar as it hurts their reputation.
If you have no further questions a positive rating would be greatly appreciated.
