Cliffs notes.My business partner in South Dakota hired a lawyer, he has done work for our business and is handling his divorce. We found his lawyer failed to send a request for discovery 90 days after having it done and failed to send 3 out of 4 approved offers to his wife's attorney and lied by blaming it on her counsel which wasn't the case.Basically he is over billing for work he never did, failed to follow the instructions of his client, deceived his client as to what he was doing and in general didn't operate in the best interests of his client.He has been billed for this along without business items. As an example we have noticed he has billed us 3 hours for a 15 minute phone call.It seems the lawyer has opened a new business and no longer put much energy into his legal practice(with one other partner.)http://www.americanbar.org/groups/professional_responsibility/publications/model_rules_of_professional_conduct/model_rules_of_professional_conduct_table_of_contents.htmlIt looks like Our lawyer violated, there is still a $2000 open bill but I don't think anybody should have to pay for offers he failed to send and we should file a complaint against him to the bar.1.11.31.4-1-2-3-5b3.23.4-a-d8.4-*/1-cI know I need to write a letter here but what should I say or not say to make my complaint effective and easy to understand.http://www.statebarofsouthdakota.com/p/cm/ld/fid=45The State Bar of South Dakota222 E.CapitolPierre, SD 57501Thanks,

I am contemplating a loan from a financial group and they

I am contemplating a loan from a financial group and they have a couple of contract sections I'm concerned about.1) What is N.A.C.H.A."2) If they include a 'Survival' section and that section states that the loan terms could extend to my 'heirs.'"This Arbitration Provision continues in full force and effect, even if your obligations have been paid or discharged through bankruptcy. This Arbitration Provision survives any cancellation, termination, amendment, expiration or performance of this Note or any transaction between you and us and continues in full force and effect unless you and we otherwise agree in writing. If any of this Arbitration Provision other than the prohibition against class or representative relief is held invalid, the remainder shall remain in effect. If the prohibition against class or representative relief is held invalid, the entire Arbitration Provision shall be null and void."This makes it sound as though even bankruptcy could not prevent them from collecting the loan amount for the eternity.

I have a gender discrimination and harassment case with my

Hi, I have a gender discrimination and sexual harassment case with my former employer. I've decided to be represented by a lawyer here in New York. I have received his retainer agreement but I feel it's not very detailed. I'd like to scan it, removing all names and information on the agreement, and see if another professional could tell me their opinion. I feel that the agreement should state what he explained to me during the consultation. That for 40% he will take care of all filling fees or any future fees if the case prolongs. Would it be possible to send this retainer agreement or perhaps I'll type it in for someone to read? It's very short. I, of course, won't disclose any personal information from my attorney or my side.Thank you in advance.

I have asked my former spouse to provide me a copy of our

I have asked my former spouse to provide me a copy of our daughter's school report card about 10-15 times over the past 6 weeks. She is refusing to gift it to me. Earlier she had said she was too busy. Today she wanted more money in addition to what is in the MSA. When I said I cannot give more she said I can get the report myself.Attached is the clause in the MSA in this regards. I am trying to avoid a legallstic approach if possible. As per attached would I be in the right to ask for the report from her ? I did try the school also but their office is closed for the summer. I have joint legal custody. If intern to court how would this be dealt with by judge ?
