Daryl R. Halencak, Attorney Attorney Malpractice - Unresponsive & Incompetent Attorney Seymour Texas
This attorney delayed mailing me a settlement check after court released the funds several months prior to my request. To compound the matter, attorney authorized the incorrectly spelled name on cashier's check. The bank manager stated that she even questioned attorney about the spelling but was informed to process it according to his instructions.
When advised that an out-of-state bank would not honor the cashier's check due to his error, attorney "sat" on the matter - did not return emails, faxes and telephone calls for over 7 weeks.
The bank would not re-issue the check until the voided check had been returned. The voided check was in attorney's possession during the previously noted 7-week time period. The bank was located 7 blocks from this attorney's office.
To finally resolve this matter I contacted the local Chief of Police to file a police report. Upon advising the attorney's office of my police action, the voided check was turned over to the bank within several hours. The bank issued a replacement cashier's check and mailed it to me in a self-addressed, stamped envelope which I had provided to attorney 4 months prior to this incompetence.
It should be noted that the attorney had deducted his attorney's fees immediately which was approximately 20% of settlement amount. I requested a refund due to he/his office's incompetence which was refused by a wall of silence.
