Because of the incompetence of Frederick McClelland to represent my son fairly, my son now sits in jail since Thanksgiving. McClelland never brought up the pertinent information that if the Judge knew at the time I believe his decision to find my son guilty would have had a different outcome. As a matter of fact half way through the whole trial he finally looked at my son and said "so you really are innocent"! It was as if he didn't care, the whole time he just wanted him to plead guilty and basically just be done. When we kept telling him it would be a lie to say you did something when you had not. And then on top of it he told us we should let the Judge decide the case and not have a jury of his peers. I am pretty sure that was because it would have had him do a little work. He is just plain lazy and does not look out for the best interest of the person he represents. He kept reminding us that he was not getting paid for representing my son and I actually had to buy him lunch one day. He is uncaring and if you see him coming to represent you run quickly the other way. He is a horrible lawyer!
FRAUD COMPLAINT FILED AGAINST McCLELLAND IN SEPTEMBER 2012, AND HE'S HIDING FROM THE PROCESSOR SERVER
I have brought a malpractice action against Attorney McClelland and NOW HE IS HIDING from the processor server. The action against McClelland for legal malpractice was filed in September 2012. The agency, The Offfice of Assigned Counsel, who assigned McClelland, is also trying to cover this up. I have written to the Director of the OAC to no avail. One thing is for sure is that if you don't have money for a real attorney, and are appointed a 'PUBLIC PRETENDER" you can forget about justice.
