Shantal Lucille Becher Defended the Plaintiff Instead of Me, Whom She Was Hired to Defend Causing My Home to Be Auction Forclosed Palm Beach Florida
Ms. Chantal Becher is as Bad as they come when it comes to being a lawyer. A Young, Inexperienced Woman, who was hired to defend me and actually ended up defending the Plaintiff Suing Me - Which Resulted in the Judge issuing a Forclosure Auction Sale Date on my Family Home that I've Been Fighting for 5 Years to Keep.
My home Forclosure Defense is being handled by a Fort Lauderdale Law Firm and We had a Case Managemement Hearing Scheduled for Monday May 13, 2013 in West Palm Beach, Florida. Since my Retained Attorney is approximately 60 Miles from the Courthouse, he "Outsourced" the Attendace to the hearing to an Inexperienced, Young, Rookie Attorney Named Shantal Lucille Becher.
On the Thursday (May 9) prior to the May 13 hearing, the Paralegal at my Regular Lawyer's Office gave me Ms. Becher's Telephone # so that I could arrange meeting her 30 minutes prior to Monday's Hearing and Go over the case on the phone in advance.
I left a voicemail message for Ms. Becher on Thursday and Friday monring, May 9th and 10th. Neither Call was Returned. I Again Called Her Saturday May 11th at 4:00pm and left a More Assertive Message informing her that I'd Notify my Regular Counsel of her Ignoring My Calls and Also Take Other Appropriate Measures Regarding Her Lack of Attention to My Case.
She Immediately Returned my call at 4:05pm Saturday 5/11 and Rudely asked "Why I was Calling Her Home Telephone #". I explained that was the number the Paralegal Gave me, and that's the # that Avvo and Other Public Records Show. She then Gave me an aleternate number telling me she "Never Checks Her Home Phone and Just Happen to See There Was a Message this time".
We Made Arrangements to meet at 8:15 Monday at the courthouse 30 Minutes Prior to the Hearing. Mrs. Becher phoned me at 8:30 letting me know she was stuck in traffic and would be later but alerted me that she would have a hard time defending me because my regular lawyer didn't file the propert paperwork in advance - which was not true.
She showed up 15 minutes late for court. Was Rude and Cold to me when I tried to get advice from her. Worse than that, when my Case Was Called Before the Judge, the Plaintiff (who had 2 Lawyers there) lashed out a tirade of False Accusations against Me as Well as My Regular Lawyer.
To My Shock and Amazement, Ms. Becher kept her mouth shut except when the Judge asked her if these Accusations were True - she replied "Yes Your Honor they are true, and Glenn's Attorney totally dropped the ball here and there's nothing we can argue or defend".
At that Point the Judge Ordered that my Home Be Sold at Auction 1 Month Later and Said Thank You. Ms. Becher then, to my Astonishment, Walked off gigglind with the Opposing Counsel and Turned Her back on me. When I finally approached her at the table she was sitting at, she replied "I am Not Your Lawyer...You Need To Speak To Your Lawyer.
This Was an Absolute Nightmare and I've Reported Ms. Becher to the BBB, The Florida Bar and Other Reporting Bodies.
