I want to know about Title 09 in Maryland and if that prohibits a person from filing a complaint against an attorney for non payment of a note
Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 6 months ago

if I can understand your situation correctly, you're the holder of this note and the attorney has not paid. Is the attorney representing themselves or someone else?

I am the attorney and I have been paying the note to the person who has filed a complaint against me saying that I did not pay the note on time etc. I responded to him saying that title 9 said the complainant could not file claim against me for not paying the note. That is the story. Let me hear from you.
Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 6 months ago

Hi, let me opt out of this discussion so someone with more experience with Title 9 exceptions may be able to help you.

Ray here a new expert.Anyone can file a complaint but it would be dismissed as you state.Only the failure to pay taxes or some other illegal activity would be grounds for sanction.This is just a debt, he can sue but thats it.The grievance would be dismissed here as you state.You could file Chapter 7 for that matter.Lots of lawyers have debts and bankruptcies, I have lawyer friend thats done it three times and he is still practicing.Title 09 in Maryland here cannot be used to enforce a regular debt.

It is not a problem here any grievance will be dismissed or a finding that no violation is present here.

Thanks and thanks for rating 5 stars.

thank you For your analysis and thought. I feel you made a good summary of the facts in showing the attorney is restricted by title 9. To Me it seemed odd that the complainant could use the attorney greivance commitence to collect his money. I thought Title 9 was the answer. Thanks again. *****
Lawyer: Ray, Lawyer replied 6 months ago

Dick I don't think this is going anywhere its a civil debt thats it.I used to do grievance work a few years back.
