He got the lawsuit reopened after the client approached the prosecutor. It was not until the opposing counsel withdrew from the case, however, that the lawyer acted to bring his client’s interests forward. Meanwhile, with the bulk of the marital properties, the lawyer allowed the woman’s husband to abscond, escaping the court’s jurisdiction. The prosecutor got a spousal support order, but did not do anything useful in collecting or implementing the spousal support order against the defendant who did not pay.Learn more at Scottsdale Family Law Lawyer
The lawyer actually allowed the accumulation of tens of thousands of dollars in arrears. The lawyer, meanwhile, asked for and received a court award of $10,000 from the absconded husband for attorney’s fees. When the lawyer learned that the husband had invested the money and it would not be easy to obtain the attorney fee reward, he started to demand money from the consumer. She was unable to pay the counsel, having been disabled and not having received a penny of the welfare grant, and he withdrew from her case at the final hearing. Needless to say, when it comes to lawyers, all this left the woman with a bad taste in her mouth. The woman learned about me and, in spite of having had a bad experience, came to me because she needed support. We were able to complete the divorce and property division, which had been begun 9-10 years ago, and by attaching social security and retirement income due to her husband, we began implementation of the support award.
The accumulation started through our efforts and an income stream began to flow to the consumer. We were also able to protect the woman successfully against an effort by her husband to stop payments of support and at the same time recover some of the personal property items granted to her by the court. The woman also had to defend herself against a complaint brought by the lawyer who requested more than $10,000 and did not credit the retainer at the beginning of the representation that the woman paid.
