California, Justin Stan, Bill discussed on The Kim Komando Show


There are a couple of rules that i want to tell you about lawyers and that has to do with disciplinary hearings one of the things i tell you constantly on not happy with my lawyer my lawyer screwed me my lawyer hasn't called me in months one of the things that particularly here in california but i think across the country that lawyer should be most concerned with is the concept of abandonment of client because what ends up happening is they have bought themselves a good healthy investigation which you know almost any complaint will buy an investigation now usually disputes as to money not so much but disputes as to violating the canons of ethics stealing money misrepresenting clients not showing up at hearings that sort of thing by the name of justin stan who was actually at a hearing a disciplinary hearing when you are in front of the board in front of the judicial board determining what kind of penalty you are looking at suspension a reprimand public reprimand private reprimand you have to be a little careful now usually if you have any brains you're gonna hire a lawyer to come in and represent you a lawyer who has experience dealing with a bar a lawyer who has a lot of experience dealing with any disciplinary actions that's what you do matter of fact i've had a couple of complaints about giving bad legal advice on the air there have been a complete a couple of complaints to the state bar saying bill purports to give legal advice and it's horrible and all we do twice is sent a copy of the show where i say this is marginal legal advice where i tell you have no case disclaimer i go beyond that you're crazy to listen to me you're out of your mind this is free advice and you're overpaying but there was they opened up a file they contacted me a letter went out so this lawyer justin hall halston in front of the kansas supreme court shows up at his hearing because you can appeal and go right up the supreme court and there is a hearing the problem was he showed up to the hearing falling down drunk you can't do.

Coming up next
