Today, I got a bill from my former attorney for the call he made to me begging me not to turn him in for stealing all my money and almost causing me lose my home. FML

As you're no longer his client, the bill is null. So I wouldn't worry about it. Sorry to hear about him duping you though. Hopefully he gets his just desserts.

Report him to your local Bar Association. If it's bad enough they might disbar him. Also, if he caused you harm or cost you money, sue him. If it's a small amount, take him to small claims court. That way you avoid using another lawyer altogether.

I hope he got what he deserved for doing that.

The attorney can take that bill, turn that sumbitch sideways, and stick it straight up his candy ass. People that wrong others and and beg the people they wronged not to talk are some of the most morally degenerate people out there.

You ought to go to his office and kick him right in the briefs.

Shouldn't he know a better way than to beg his client not to turn him in, being an attourney and all? Wait, that does explain things

Why don't you turn him in? Have his license to practice law revoked.

Well, he almost lost his house over it, so I doubt it was a small amount

I didn't want to assume. He may have nearly cost them their house by not filing paperwork and not involved a lot of money at all. This nearly happened to a friend of mine where it was the bank that caught it and fixed it. Theft of money is another matter altogether and Will cause a disbarment.

Contact the state bar and file a complaint. There is no excuse for stealing client funds and I'm pretty sure begging to not be turned in isn't working on your case, even if he begged for over 6 minutes.

I hope that you turned him in the first place. And also don't pay the bill. Absolutely ridiculous.

Former attorney as in OP is no longer his client, not that he's no longer an attorney.
