I have a client (I am a clinical manager) who recently lost

I have a client (I am a clinical manager) who recently lost parental rights. She has no legal assistance at this point. I am wondering if there are any other options for her. The following is a letter she wrote: " My family in Alaska tried to take James. They paid to fly down for 2 weeks to meet James and fill out all the paperwork and the social worker NEVER returned their calls, stonewalled any effort made to contact the CPS office. They ran out of time, got frustrated and had to return home to Alaska.The social worker assigned to my case Ms. Nora Rice is employed at the same office as the adoptive mother Adriana Devine. This is a conflict of interest – correct?When I was interviewed in Stanislaus county jail by a man named Phil, he told me that if my case was transferred to Stanislaus that I would never see my baby again. He is Ms. Rice's supervisor.The lawyer assigned to my case refused to communicate with me, as a result I was completely unprepared for the 326 hearing and as a desperate measure took the stand and improvised. When if she would have communicated with me I could have called witnesses in particular my family in Alaska who wanted to adopt James, along with other family members. I kept a log of every time I attempted to contact this court appointed lawyer via phone and letter. I have some photocopies of the actual letters I sent her also."JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: She also provided me with a 14 page OPINION document from the court CAJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Yes, she has lost parental rights, and lost an appeal. I would like to know if there is anything I can do to help her or should I be helping her to move forward.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: That is all I have.

The Dr who did my c-section sowed my stomach muscles into my

The Dr who did my c-section sowed my stomach muscles into my c-section. I told them the very next day there was something wrong they assured me I was wrong this was Feb 25th 2015. The following week at my follow up they began pulling fluid out as there was something obviously wrong. After months of scans and severe pain feeling like I was ripping apart, and numerous fluid extractions I had surgery Sept 30th. Where they found my stomach muscles sowed into my csection. I'm having surgery again January 9th with a plastic surgeon to go back in and make sure everything is done right. As I am still in pain. We asked the Dr if he had done a c-section with a woman who had a belt lipectomy before and he assured us he was capable. We would have gotten a plastic surgeon in the room if he wasn't capable. Now I've been off work for 8 months, and in constant pain for almost 2 years.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Is he liable?JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: South Dakota NoJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I'm not sure. I think that is the main points.
