How can I handle this and what should I do about this? An attorney promised to be an ally to me and assist me in multiple ways and when he got my very personal story and information out of me stopped responding to e-mails and phone calls and left me stranded, what should i have done about this/? He lied to me by doign this and left me in jeapordy and lost. Why did he do this? Whgy do so many attorneys do this? Why do they feel hey have the right to do this and plat with peoples lives regardless of the reprecutions that may come their way as a result of this.
