I hired a lawyer...

I hired a lawyer to help me do a job he charge me $1000 I told him I did not have money upfront he told me we could work it off by a naked pic and also he wants to meet me what can I do about it

Lawyer's Assistant: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

ALABAM

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

We’re not yet I did not know if I can actually file something against him for doing that I did agree at first but I was scared and I ended up firing him I do have text messages from him saying exactly what he wanted for me

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Hi,

I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear that this happened.

Yes, you can report it. Rule 1.8 specifically prohibits a lawyer from making sexual advances toward an existing or prospective client, or from demanding sexual relations in exchange for representing someone. Asking for nude pictures as payment is likely going to be considered a violation of that rule, especially if his request for meeting suggested he wanted sexual favors from you.

There are also rules about what sort of fees can be charged, and nude pictures are not an acceptable way of asking a client to pay for legal services.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

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.

TonyApopka, FL

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.
