Post: legal malpractice
Posted by danielle on 3/22/13
My mother recently lost custody of my little sister because
her lawyer failed to notify her of a second court date, she
recieved no notification of the second courtdate whatsoever
and found out today March 22, that the child custody had
been finalized back in february because neither she nor her
lawyer showed up in court. she had paid her lawyer $1500
dollars in legal fees for his services. During the first
court date they postponed the hearing, she has been waiting
all this time to hear from her lawyer about the next court
date. come to find out it was finalized in february and she
had heard NOTHING from anyone. She wants to know if she can
sue her lawyer for malpractice. He is ignoring all of her
attempts to contact his still to this day.
