Chance Gordon, then licensed as a Calif Attorney was supposedly the litigation attorney for defendant, my family, and worked with our supposed primary attorney, Christopher Hamner. Mr. Hamner and Mr. Gordon were law school classmates and personal friends. Mr. Hamner took the case on a contingency fee. He was referred to my family by a mutual acquaintance. Mr. Gordon and Mr. Hamner never examined documentation pertaining to the file. Mr. Hamner, after the case was well along, changed our fee agreement. We had no choice but to agree. We were desparate. Mr. Gordon, before the case was concluded, left the country to meet his ex-wife in Europe. Mr. Hamner was unfamiliar with any of the case facts and they sent a young inexperienced attorney to finish the case. Of course we lost. Mr. Gordon has since been declared ineligible to practice law by the Calif State Bar for reasons primarily related to ethics. Mr. Hamner, after we lost the case. sued my family for fees based on the revised fee agreement. My family was completely broke and could not defend themselves and Mr. Hamner knew that would be the case. The Plaintiffs attorney, N. Thomas McCartney, was my former attorney in another similar case. Mr. McCartney withdrew in the middle of that case, I hired another Attorney and won. I believed that to be a slam dunk conflict of interest. Mr. Hamner and Mr. Gordon ignored the conflict of interest issue. Mr. Hamner and Mr. McCartney had a private meeting and Mr. Hamner quickly bailed on his clients, my family, taking his lawschool classmate and friend with him. I assume Mr. Hamner was preparing for his next case which was a lawsuit against hus clients, my family. I am not an attorney. I do know that Mr. Hamner’s lawschool classmate and good friend, Mr. Gordon, is ineligible to practice law. Mr Gordon was involved in the actives that made him ineligible to practice law at the same time he was supposedly representing my family with Attorney Hamner.
