I am considering bringing a case against the attourny that represented me in IL. He didn't call any of the witnesses including the childs babysitter to the stand. He had proof that my ex lied on the stand and didn't use it. basicaly the judge told him his mind was made up and we weren't going to waist his time. rather than fight for me he rolled over, and didn't leave me enough for an appeal.
I'm afraid this might hurt the couse through and discorage attourneys from taking our cases? what do you all think.
oh by the way the attourneys name was Neil Holly from Clemmons and Hood in Carbondale IL.

First, I would probably file a complaint with the ethics board and see where that leads. Should you prevail there, I'd say go for the malpractice case but otherwise you are probably wasting money. This is another flaw in our legal system.

"Political reasons have not the requisite certainty to afford juridical interpretation. They are different in different men. They are different in the same men at different times. And when a strict interpretation of the Constitution, according to the fixed rules which govern the interpretation of laws, is abandoned, and the theoretical opinions of individuals are allowed to control its meaning, we have no longer a Constitution; we are under a government of individual men, who for the time being have the power to declare what the Constitution is, according to their own views of that it ought to mean."
