How to File a Complaint Against an Attorney
The professional conduct of every lawyer practicing law in the State of Maine is
governed by the Maine Rules of Professional Conduct and the Maine Bar Rules as
promulgated by the Maine Supreme Judicial Court. The Board of Overseers of the
Bar was created by the Court in 1978. The Board consists of six lawyers and three
lay members (non-lawyer members of the public). The Board appoints members
to three commissions established by the Bar Rules: the Fee Arbitration
Commission, the Grievance Commission, and the Professional Ethics Commission.
All members of the Board and its commissions serve as volunteers.
When attorneys enter the practice of law,
they obligate themselves to uphold the law and to abide by the Maine Bar Rules and the Maine Bar Rules of Professional Conduct adopted by the Maine Supreme Judicial Court. Those who violate the rules of professional conduct are subject to discipline, ranging from a public reprimand to disbarment. Because disciplining a lawyer is a serious matter, it makes there ethical violations on there permanent record. takes evidence — proof of unethical conduct — to justify disciplinary action. Just as it takes proof before any member of society may be penalized for wrongdoing, the action of the lawyer must constitute unethical conduct before the lawyer is disciplined. An honest disagreement about how a case should be handled — or should have been handled — does not constitute unethical conduct, even if the outcome of the case is disappointing.
A mistake does not necessarily constitute unethical conduct either.
If a mistake causes a loss, the client may be able to recover the loss in a civil suit against the lawyer for money damages. But a simple mistake or error in judgment by itself is not unethical conduct. There are situations that a client may find most annoying, but that do not constitute unethical conduct. An example would be the lawyer’s failure to consult with the client prior to writing every letter or prior to filing every document in the client’s case, or perhaps the lawyer’s failure to respond to all of the client’s telephone calls inquiring about the progress of the case. If you have a problem that may be the result of inadequate communications or some misunderstanding, it may be that the problem can best be resolved by a frank talk with your lawyer. Tell your lawyer of your dissatisfaction, and ask for a full explanation of the matter involved. Such a discussion will often either eliminate the problem or lead to its solution.
Finally, the disciplinary process cannot correct a lawyer’s personality problems.
Allegations that a lawyer was rude, used bad language, or failed to pay a bill cannot generally be investigated by the disciplinary system. While it is impossible to list all of the acts or omissions which may constitute unethical conduct, here are a few examples of prohibited conduct which, if proven, may be cause for discipline.
A lawyer cannot or will not give you money that he or she is holding on
your behalf and to which you are entitled, or will not provide you a complete
written accounting for that money.
A lawyer continually fails to respond at all to inquiries about your case, to
tell you about court dates, or to appear in court. Where the problem is
simply a lack of communication, first try your best to resolve the problem
A lawyer advises you or anyone else to lie, or lies himself or herself in the
course of a case. Lawyers pride themselves on their honesty. The profession
does not need those who feel they must resort to deception to conduct their
A lawyer represents one party to a transaction while also the attorney for
the other side. This is a conflict of interest and is generally prohibited unless
both parties are fully aware of the situation and consent to it.
If you have no money you are forced to sign the papers requesting a court appointed attorney. Once signed, you are now considered ripe for profiling by the District Attorney’s Office. The reality is your “Court Appointed Attorney’s” job is to help the District Attorney convict you. There is money to be made here from you, so get ready. Your “New Attorney” will get valuable experience using “You” to wipe there feet on as they climb the ladder of corruption and a better paying job. Your “Court Appointed Attorney” will be working hand in hand with the District Attorney to use you as a stepping stone, nothing more. You are not a member of the club so ruining your life in the process is of no concern to them.
If you are in Maine be prepared for the District Attorney and your “Court Appointed Attorney” to do any of the following;
Engage in conduct unworthy of an attorney.
Engage in conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice.
Fail to employ any reasonable skill and care what-so-ever.
Fail to make timely disclosure of the existence of evidence that tends to negate the guilt of
the accused, mitigate the degree of the offense or reduce the punishment.
Suppress evidence that the lawyer had a legal obligation to produce.
Assist the State of Maine to violate the Maine Rules of Criminal Procedure and the court’s
Employ means that are inconsistent with truth and seek to mislead the jury’s or judges.
Attorney’s, (e.g. Charles “Control Freak” Helfrich) May false claim that you have no right to file motions with the court yourself, only lawyers are supposed to. They may then file a motion so “You” have to get another “court appointed” but district attorney controlled attorney.
A “public defenders” job is to defend the public from YOU.
Hancock County court appointed attorney’s like Jeffrey Toothaker are masters at manipulation. Jeff is a real smooth talker and a total master at getting you convicted and not helping you in any way. As your lawyer Jeff will lie and backstab you by default. He is the first fake puppet lawyer the court picks if you are profiled as poor, disabled or weak. Jeff is not alone in Hancock County, Robert Van Horn, Mary Kellett, Charles Helfrich and William Blaisdell IV will screw you over just as quickly. It’s fair to say your chances of getting a court appointed lawyer that is not in the pocket of the district attorney in Maine is close to zero. With that said, you want to be careful what you say to any court appointed lawyer, since their job is to help convict you. It is recommended you document everything in case you decide to file a “valid” bar complaint down the road on your puppet lawyer. Document every ethical violation they try to pull and file a complaint.
If you have a court appointed lawyer you have a “Valid” complaint for “Inadequate Counsel”
Make there ethical violations against you on there permanent record.
