There is no specific or established protection from an incompetent or negligent attorney in a civil case. He established method for countering what occurred to you in the zoning action is to replace your attorney with one who can prevail upon the hearing officer to reopen your petition., and permit the introduction of new evidence. Other than that, you will have to restart petition from scratch with your new lawyer. There is also the possibility of bringing a legal malpractice and other disciplinary actions against the attorney, but that is not the subject matter of your question.

I hope that I have provided excellent service and, if so, would love a 5 star rating. If not, please let me know how I can further assist you. There is no additional charge to you for rating me. A bonus is not required, but is always appreciated.

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.
