This attorney spoke to myself and my husband in a very rude and condescending way. We hired him to represent us...not to be condescending to us. Besides giving him a bad review is there anything else that you can think we could do to move forward?
Also there were empty promises made. I have requested a copy of our file and have yet to get it. What would you advise us to do!
If rudeness was a legal claim for recovery, the courthouses would be so busy you couldn't get in the door. Neither rudeness nor condescension are legal claims.
The above is general legal and business analysis. It is not "legal advice" but analysis, and different lawyers may analyse this matter differently, especially if there are additional facts...
No, there is no cause of action for being talked down to.
Accepting cases in Dallas, Denton, Collin and Tarrant Counties. THIS IS GENERAL ADVICE AND DOES NOT REPLACE A PERSONAL CONSULTATION WITH AN ATTORNEY AND DOES NOT ESTABLISH AN ATTORNEY/CLIENT RELATIONSHIP
I agree with other counsel but if a reasonable time has elapsed since you made a written request for your file, call him and follow up and if necessary, make a complaint against him for that to the state bar of Texas. If false factual promises (not opinions) were made that caused you damages, you may have a DTPA claim.
