Miss Sinclair made a suggestion and I diligently tried to find someone to take the case where to find the right avenue where to file and forms to file her secretary became very hostile when I called and asked if they would consider taking the case even though they were out of the area I knew it would cost extra for that but was very rudely told go away Miss Sinclair text herself saying I was abusing a bow and attorneys that were volunteering their time needless to say I have not been able to remedy my problem yet... I don't recommend her office or her ... I don't know how to answer this next question because it says consultation or hired attorney I didn't get either but I have to pick one to submit this so consultation I guess a week one at that they took no responsibility...
Response from Paula Sinclair January 4, 2019
Most respectfully, this person is not and has never been a client, and apparently does have unreasonable expectations of the Avvo Q&A forum. I did provide very accurate general information about foreclosing a possessory lien (for which there is no "form" but rather requires a particular kind of legal action) and this person responded by calling my office and demanding a free detailed phone consultation to teach him how to foreclose his lien. I responded by reiterating that nothing short of retaining local counsel would meet his needs and also suggested contacting the Lawyer Referral Service of the Idaho State Bar to locate such an attorney. Then he called again yesterday to report that he has been accused of "grand larceny" and demanded that I undertake representation in his case. He seems to believe I have some obligation to do so. In fact I do not accept cases outside the Twin Falls area, and he is 120 miles away. I did reiterate that he needs local counsel including experienced criminal defense counsel if contacted by law enforcement or charged with a crime. I do understand he is frustrated about accessing legal services and regret that he finds my direct approach "rude," but I am confident that there are attorneys in his area who know how to foreclose a lien and are available to do so.
