Believe it or not, I, a physician, am suing an attorney . He

Believe it or not, I, a physician, am suing an attorney for malpractice. He actually tried to sabotage my case. I have many examples, but one is this: After my demurrer was overruled, he told me that we were not supposed to answer the complaint. I told him that made no sense, but he ignored me. I did my own research to find out that this was not true. Second, he taunted me by text throughout the time I had a contract with him. He would not answer any questions, but he would say things like, "oh no! You should see what Mr. Baker is saying now! Then when I would ask, he would ignore me. He seemed to be enjoying frightening me. I wish I was kidding.I am an expert witness, and he also slandered me. He accused me of quitting a case when he was not prepared, and lied to an attorney friend of mine about me (and probably others.) I have reason to believe he has written items and forged my signature on Court documents as well.My question is this: do I have any cause of action other than malpractice and libel/slander? He has gone way beyond that.I do not expect to make much money off of this very legitimate case, but I need the Judge to know how badly I have been represented adn allow me to amend my Cross complaint in the case that he sabotaged. Thanks for your help.

I believe my dog was harmed by treatment by an emergency vet

I believe my dog was harmed by treatment by an emergency vet hospital that resulted in his being on seizure medications. I have asked the hospital to pay for the expenses I incurred as a result of their actions. They did an unnecessary procedure without obtaining my consent. They have had their liability company contact me and they are sending forms for me to fill out and they will "review" them and make a determination. I worry this will be a run around. I'm wondering if I shouldn't just go ahead and file in small claims court rather than try to work with them since they will do everything to protect their clients.

I was wondering if a defamation lawyer can help me

Hello,I was wondering if a defamation lawyer can help me since I'm so depressed from this case.In past summer, I got a letter from a lawyer about someone accusing me of selling him a car that had defects...etc and they need a refund of his money or else it will go to court. I called the lawyer and said I have never even owned a car in my life anddon'tknow that person and wrote them an email of so. They said "sorry for bothering you" and left it at that. At that time, the buyer who is accusing me had called my work place to get the correct spelling of my last name as well and told them I stole a car and greatly harmed my reputation between my co workers. I have been depressed ever since then. But I thought it ended at summer and went back to my normal life thinking its just a mistaken identity.Later I found out that actually my brother is the one who sold him a car (his father in law's car) and not me and the transaction was clear and no issues but any way even if there was issues, it is NOT me it's my brother.Few weeks ago, I got a letter from sheriff that I'm served some papers. I went to pick it and apparently that same person has filed a lawsuit against me and I need to appear at court. I'm 100 % clear of it. I have NEVER even seen the person in real life and don't know him.What is depressing me is not that he filed at court a lawsuit, but that he harmed my reputation greatly. In the court papers, he stated that he called another CVS store that I never even worked in and told the manager of my "criminal activity" and he also went to speak to my nearest chase bank whom I know people in personally and told them of my "criminal activity"...I can't even step in that bank anymore properly. Ever since I read all that he did against my reputation, I'm seriously depressed. I just graduated from pharmacy school and have a CLEAR name, no criminal record and have NEVER been at any court..I no longer work at work place due to various reasons including this one. I feel so ashamed in front of my co workers, whether they believe it or not. And it's no longer my local co workers but everyone across the city. Even my local bank knows.He went ahead to destroy my reputation without even verifying my identity. How is it even possible that he makes a car deal with someone without verifying their identity?My brother's father in law who is also named in this case hired a lawyer to deal with it and the lawyer told the buyer that he believes it's a case of mistaken identity but the buyer still insisted that it is ME who met him, bought from him...etc.I have been depressed ever since that court paper when I read what he did by calling various people and telling them and I quote as per court papers "my criminal activities". I'm seriously considering taking anti depressants but don't want my parents or sibilings to worry about me since I'm generally a happy person.I wanted to look for new employment but now I'm just staying home depressed and afraid if this news spread.I need to sue this person for defamation. I'm emotionally distressed and super mad that he didn't even verify the identity before suing that person.P.S My co worker who picked up the phone call back in the summer can be a witness to what he said about me.P.S everything I said about my defamation, he admitted that in the court papers and signed them.What do I do? Do I have a case?
