I hired an Attorney to represent me reqarding a claim we had
regarding a forged signature on a deed
deed. The Attorney in question has made several mistakes
He failed to submit a witness list in time and so
we had throw out the case and start all over.
Secondly one of our witnesses would have been evidence
that the person in question had a history of Forgery
however . The Attorney who represented me in that was aware
of this and repeatedly assured me that this person and evidence was going to be called. I believe that this person was never reached by
Also the Attorney vastly overstated to me the damages that he was seeking . This made it difficult to make
evaluate the settlement offer
I have since found out that the Attorney was reprimanded by the bar association
Finally he failed to submit proper documentation to support our claims .
So my questions are these
What damages can I sue for.
Since the Attorney repeatedly lied to me there is an element of fraud in this because of his fraud can we seek
Since he has been reprimanded by the bar association in the past can that be used against him . And if I do file a
complaint against will it end up in him losing his license.
