This firm handled/mis-handled a very serious case involving custody of my child who had been abused by my soon-to-be-ex-spouse. (The abuse was investigated and substantiated by CPS, a local police department, and another organization.) This is a horribly painful review to write, because I feel re-traumatized all over again. Please suffice it to say that I now believe the entirety of everything I’ve seen in the documentary ”Divorce Corp.” and read in many publications, etc. The lawyers who ”represented” me as I sought to protect my child, didn’t represent me or the best interests of my child, who is now, due to outright lies I was told by counsel I paid, approx. $400/hour–my child is more in the abusive spouse’s custody than in mine, and my child is miserable and feels betrayed by everyone. I understand the feeling and, if it were not for the fact my child needs me, I would likely give up on life. (I’m sorry for the drama. Please understand that I’ve lost the person who needs me most and whom I love most.)
I gave almost my last dollar to those lawyers.
Then, after speaking with another, better lawyer, I learned my Constitutional due process rights have been violated, and I am a victim of legal malpractice due to one or two BKK lawyers making unethical plans behind my back with opposing counsel–and other acts. (When I first got wind of one such conversation, I questioned one of my counsel and was told, ”Your case is far from our only or biggest case. We have to keep good relations with other lawyers because it helps to settle cases–maybe even yours.” )
My case did settle, but it settled on the basis of complete misinformation I was given by these lawyers. Everything spun out of control with the case. Certain matters were promised me for the sake of my child that never occurred. My signature was forged on two documents about which I know. I was coerced into foregoing my day in court to help my child.
I have no more money now to hire a legal-malpractice lawyer. And, truly, I rather have no faith in the legal system at all. The only people who truly protected my child besides me, were compassionate officers at the Police Department. Of course, they cannot save my child now. They cannot save me from very deep despair.
My only hope now is to try saving enough money to retain a malpractice lawyer for that matter, and then trying to have the fraudulent ”settlement” nullified. This will take years for me, but I hope it will not take so many that I pass the statute of limitations for these kinds of cases. I hope it will not take so long that my child develops even more severe mental illness, or worse.
There were a total of three lawyers involved on my side in the case. Though I am certain that the things to which I allude occurred, I’m not entirely certain which of the three did each of the truly atrocious acts, so I am not stating their individual names. (I’m afraid that if it’s somehow construed that I committed libel here, by accusing the wrong people, this will make it difficult for me in my hoped-for, future cases.) All three are from the firm’s family law practice.
Please, if anyone has any suggestion for me about a tactic I have not thought of, please provide it in the comment section. I worry constantly about, and I miss, my young child more than most anyone can probably imagine. My heart is completely broken.
Please be careful with these, or any, supposedly ”great” family lawyers. Please be extremely cautious when it comes to trusting any family lawyer with any aspect of your child’s fate. I hope no one who reads this will have to go through any such situation.
