Customer Question
Hello. My ex left...
Hello. My ex left me a specified sum in his Trust, according to our Divorce Decree. But his estate attorney knew I needed the money to replace his Alimony, so she stalled and tried to intimidate me into bad deals. Ultimately, I sued, and my lawyer and theirs ran up fees to get to settlement so that I have less than half of what I was entitled to get. My question is, after the fact, can I bring both firms up on ethical violations? And if so, how? Who can counsel me on this. There ought to be a "Better Business Bureau" for attorneys as there is for businesses.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
