I filed a complaint against an attorney, Russell Martin, who waived my right to a jury trial behind my back and then lied about it. He did this to get the trial over with quickly, and so that he would not have to pay jury fees. He also was supposed to use the almost $10K I paid him for costs, but he had virtually no costs - he did not take any depositions, not even the doctor I was suing for medical malpractice.
I had proof of Martin's deception which I sent to the State Bar. I also sent them the judge's ruling in the case in which he said I had "freely and intelligently waived her right to a jury trial". I had done no such thing.
The genius that "investigated" my claim concluded that my lawyer had not done anything wrong because I "didn't have a right to take the case to trial". I have never taken a legal class, but even I knew that I had a right to take the matter to trial. Not only that, but I had the judge's ruling for the trial I ALREADY HAD!
So I appealed this ridiculous ruling, and the second genius investigator also said the attorney didn't do anything wrong, this time because I "didn't have a right to a jury trial". Again, I had sent them the judge's ruling saying that I waived my right to a jury trial.
I finally gave up, and this crooked lawyer got away with it. The State Bar must either be full of people with an IQ somewhere around that of a turnip, or they are corrupt, and never intended to do anything about this lawyer. Before I filed this claim, an attorney friend told me that if I wanted them to act against this lawyer, I should tell them that he had sexually assaulted me in some way.
This lawyer said that was the only charge they would actually do something about. I didn't want to lie, so I didn't do that. But obviously lawyers know that the State Bar really doesn't do anything to protect the public from bad lawyers.
