what can the public do to help resolve the problems of LEGAL MALPRACTICE.. Charging $450 per hour and make mistake after mistake.. Bar assoc in every state is a social club.. not there to help the USA citizens.. We need attys to put the garbage out of the profession. Lawyers seem to think clients are wrong.. the PUBLIC HAS GOTTEN TO THE POINT THEY DON"T TRUST ANY ATTY.. That is to bad...I sure there are wonderful attys but the bad destroy all

I share your frustration about public distrust of lawyers, and it is true that there are some bad apples in the bunch, as there are in all professions, but your general statements that lawyers are not here to help and bad lawyers destroy all is simply not true. I admit that I do not know much about lawyers charging $450 by the hour because I work on a contingency fee basis only - meaning I only get paid if I am successful for the individual or family I represent. I can tell you that the vast majority of lawyers who do what I do - representing injured people - care deeply for the clients a form close bonds that last well beyond the case's conclusion. If you think you have a legal malpractice case, you should talk to a lawyer who handles those kinds of cases and see what your options are (those consultations are almost always free). Some may say I'm being naive in that I've always thought and believed that the legal profession is a noble one and that our fundamental purpose is to help those in need - but that's how I feel and most of the lawyers know feel the same way. I'm sorry to hear about your sentiments towards the legal profession. I hope one day they change.

I have has mitchell winn a ins lawyer lie through all appeals, Zero prep for depositions or trial. PAPER CLIPS was my prep..Never told the judge in Brooklyn I had a concussion less than a month before. The adjuster told a NON white jury I hated blacks, as you might know I lost. My atty said nothing and objected to nothing. Said when I lost I a Bigit. I am not, but does that matter once said.
He had another ins case of mine and never put in the 60 day notice, and I'm going to lose that case because off. I have until Dec 10th to file a lawsuit or loss my time. One atty said I might be able to put it as contract law and save my time.
I have another atty Joel Ziegler that stole $81,400. My RN lein on a personal injury suit. He's a legal malpractice atty in Smithtown NY.
I purchased a home and paid him to put in the papers with the Suffolk County Clerk, paid cash. He never did and I may lose my condo because of.
Scott Mishkin employment lawyer, that missed filling date, forgot to put DOH on the case, 3/4 of case thrown out and then walked... You can't find a atty after these mistakes.
How do you think you can say there are good attys.. Maybe attys should take legal malpractice case contingency then they would work for there monies.. When your paying $450 per hour why should you do the right things... There is a difference between ETHICS and Malpractice. In the medical profession if it is unethical it is malpractice, and reversed. Legal malpractice is a death penality case. You have to prove 100% you would have won your case if he had not errored...death cases are always hard.
Maybe all attys shold have to help pro bono on a certain amount of cases to clean up your profession. I do free nurseing many times, and I can't even take it off on my income taxes...But I'm a christian and moral
