I need to sue a lawyer. Is there anyone with what it takes to do that? He hurt my case, took my money, over $28,000 in 8 months then withdrew, did not deend me properly from lies and accusations from my own son. Will anyone help me?

Good afternoon. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. You have a few options. The first and easiest, is to contact the Florida Bar and file a complaint against this attorney. His conduct will be investigated and if there is a finding against him, he could have his licenses suspended or even revoked. Moreover, he could be ordered to pay you back. The second option would be to sue and file a malpractice claim. That would be based upon him improperly representing you and you suffering harm/damage, as a result. In addition, he he stole money from you, that would be criminal and you can file a report with the police.

In my experience the florida Bar is ineffectual. I have done that with another attorney who did same with this case just not to the same degree. They did nothing!
Second, I need to find a lawyer to sue him. Will you do that?

Legal representation is outside the scope of what the side can provide. If you need legal counsel you can use martindale.com or the Florida bar attorney referral service

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.
