I reported my attorney to the ethics bar and he was disciplined about an issue regarding my case. Can I now subpoena him, for records as the F bar suggested?

Hi,

I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.

Yes, you can subpoena records about the bar discipline case if you are suing your attorney for malpractice. The findings of the ethics board are likely relevant, and you have a right to review them. If you do not have a new attorney for the malpractice case, you can get blank subpoenas from the clerk of the court once the malpractice suit is filed.

Have I answered your question? If any part of my response is unclear, please reply WITHOUT rating so I can clarify. My goal is to provide excellent service, so if I've done that, please give me a 5-star rating before signing out. Thank you for using JustAnswer.

Thanks. The Bar has disciplined him regarding non-action pertaining to my case. But I am not filing a suit again him. I would like some records pertaining to my ever on going case that I filed years ago. Thanks

To subpoena records, you need to have a pending court case or a reasonable expectation of filing one.

Did you say you're in Florida? You can submit a Public Records Request to the bar and get some information. But they may not send exactly what you're looking for.

Ok. Thanks very much. Lawyer was my former. Reported him to bar, and he was disciplined. Can I use the disciplined case or my original case to subpoena some important records. The records related to work he did earlier with my case. Thanks

Yes, you can.
