Oh Misti, I am sorry to hear that.OMG I was discriminated against for the first time since my divorce this week because of my sexual orientation. Sadly, my wife and I almost ended our relationship, long unrelated story there; My point is I called a lawyer from the yellow pages that advertised free legal advice. He does it over the phone and when I explained my relationship to him, before asking the legal question I had, he said "We don't do that". I said "You don't do family law? You advertised family law." and he said "Not that kind." and STRAIGHT UP HUNG UP ON ME! I cried like a baby. It was bad enough to be going through this with my wife and what he did really hurt. Is what he did legal? I'm so mad.
My wife and I are slowly surely working things out to stay together. Thanks in advance for asking and being concerned.
David S. Kohn & Associates, Attorneys at 1414 W. Randol mill Rd. Suite 118 reached at eight one seven eight six one eight four zero zero did that to me.
Unfortunately, I am not sure how the laws for our state work. And while the attorney does have a right to refuse cases, his actions were unprofessional.
As for legal recourse, I would first check with you local city laws. But am not optimistic on how it would be handled on the state level.
At the very least, you could send a letter to the BBB or the Texas Bar Association about his conduct. Maybe ask the bar what their definition of "family law" is and see where it goes from there.
I hope things stay well for you and you wife. Hang in there.
PS... be careful with putting personal names and info on Topix, I know they frown on that.
