Here in PA there is a disciplinary board attached to the state supreme court but they do absolutely nothing.
I know a few people who have tried to file complains with this organization but none have ever gotten any satisfaction.
The board exists only as a figurehead so the lawyers can say “see, we police ourselves”. More dishonor in the courts.
I would like to present a question to our community.
What would/can a client do when an Attorney fails to return calls, e-mails and all other types of correspondence?
My bill is very small and I have even tried to speak with him re: full payment and he still will not return calls, etc.
His lack of communication is causing me (a divorced father of two boys with temporary sole custody) to lose, what I feel is, precious legal ground.
Any help, comments would be greatly appreciated! I am also available for comments off line
Thank you very much for your time.
