The attorney used a fake cell to text flirtatious messages posing as a physician at a medical institution with which I have academic ties with. Not being sure, I implied I would meet for dinner and printed all communications to provide both my boss as well as the medical college, to then have said attorney then completely both admit to having impersonated this physician as a "test of my character" and despite my not my not meeting for false dinner plans has used social media to declare he has shared this with physicians as well as others whom I share industry ties with. What is the appropriate way to proceed. Had it not been potentially affecting my livelihood and career - impersonating a physician alone is as I'm familiar - somewhere between a misdemeanor and felony. I have all documentation, just not sure what to do and how.
This is a bizarre situation. If this was your lawyer then something is very wrong here. You should have a face to face consultation with another lawyer to have this matter fully investigated.
I agree, bizarre situation. Sit down with a local attorney and discuss your options.
