That attorney needs to be on the end of another attorney. Sue his ass and get that money back.

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.

Show it anyway

Uh, no. If someone causes me to lose my entire livelihood, that's kind of exactly what courts are for.

I agree that many times people sue over dumbest reasons, but this is not one of them.

#26, if you don't want to sue, what do you suggest? Break in and steal everything they own? Kill them?

So #26, what would people from other countries do in this situation? Perhaps OP should invite the attorney who stole all their money over for Sunday dinner? OP almost lost their family home, dick.

I'm Canadian, I say sue.

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.

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.

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.

If you didn't turn him in, then YDI.

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.
