Why would you exclude details of prior representation? It is critical to the review and people need to know the name of the previous firm.
Because it's the point of attorney client confidentiality that you should keep certain things private. You run the risk of unnecessarily embarrassing both your attorney, and yourself.
I'm trying to embarrass my attorney. Isn't only he not allowed to mention my name to others?
that's up to you. You asked for feedback. And my feedback to you is that to purposely embarrass a professional is childish.
so is scamming me and other innocent people.
That's why we have a grievance committee. To fairly protect the public and lawyers that might have done nothing wrong. That is an adult activity-- presenting your facts to that body, so they can make the fairest decision possible. Trying to harm someone on the internet is childish.
not everyone has the time, money or expertise to do something like that. I'm sure you're aware plenty of guilty parties countersue and win just because they know how. My job is to warn others of what happened to me and there is no replacement for that kind of knowledge. Not all the money in the world.
"not everyone has the time, money or expertise to do something like that."
All you have to do is write a letter. Again, that is the solution to the problem, because they have the ability to stop him from practicing law at all if he is actually hurting the public. Isn't that what you want?
is there a statute of limitations?
and honestly I'm not sure it would be enough to stop him, and I don't have evidence supporting each and every one of my claims. unfortunately, that is also part of the reason so much corruption occurs -- they know how to not get caught.
Just write the Grievence Committee (First Department if he is located in Manhattan or the Bronx) and write them a detailed letter describing your concerns about this attorney. That's all. In the time it takes you to comment on Avvo, you could be finished. They are the ones with authority to take action. You can easily find their address on Google.

can he sue me for filing this?
No. Just do it.
