ARDC alleges that lawyer lied to a client to cover up negligence

BEFORE THE HEARING BOARD:

This is an all-too-frequent occurrence, if the allegations in the complaint are true. A lawyer was retained to do an eviction. He failed to attend a court appearance and the case was dismissed for want of prosecution. The lawyer then lied to client concerning the status of the matter apparently claiming that a default judgment had been entered against the tenant and that the default judgment had been “reversed.”

Obviously, as a client you need to ask for copies of all court orders and other papers so as to monitor the work of your lawyer. Don’t take in on faith that the lawyer is doing her job.
