I am the owner of a small corp. I am considering filing a complaint against an attorney with the PA Disciplinary Board - Do I need an attorney or can I file as the owner?
1 Answer from Attorneys
You can file as the owner without an attorney. The website is very helpful.
Just be aware that once you file a complaint with the Disciplinary Board, you lose control. The Disciplinary Board makes the decision as to whether to proceed or not. You have no control over that one way or another. You are unable to get any recovery from the Disciplinary Board for any damages that the attorney may have caused...although if the attorney took money that was yours(not fees), you maybe able to get back a limited amount. I usually advise filing with the Disciplinary Board as a last resort as the only thing you can get is some satisfaction that the attorney has been punished for his wrong doing or to deter the attorney from future conduct.
