I saw your newscast on Dr. Brard and was horrified as to how he was presented. Dr. Brard and I have worked together for 5 years, and he is an outstanding man, and an outstanding doctor. He made a mistake, and we are all humans and make mistakes. He had the courage to admit it and he is paying the consequenses. You presented him in a sensationalized way to sell your newscast and you owe him an apology. His children had to see that, did you think about that? I not only look forward to working with him in the future, but I would trust him with my life and the lives of any of my family members. He is a compassionate and caring doctor who was brave enough to come forward and admit he made a bad choice. You have lost me as a viewer of Channel 12. If I wanted to watch sensationalized TV or gossip, I know where to find it. When I want news reported fairly and accurately, I obviously have to turn to a different station.

Leslie Rosa, How would you feel if you were the victim?
I don't think you would be talking so highly about him. It is obvious he admit his mistake" as you called it" because he got caught. Other then that he would never had admitt from his wrong doing.

What victim? The article didn't say there was a complaint filed against him, nor did the reporter interview the patient, it stated he reported the relationship, nothing about being caught. don't take it as I condone a Dr. patient romantic/sexual relationship just commenting that the reporter left out a whole lot of information.

My dentist rapes me every visit, like 99 percent of dentists who overcharge cherished patients.

Dentists (and Lawyers) are lowlife scammers.

My uncle recently received a treatment plan for $3,300 from some slanty eye quack (endodonist) who claimed she could not perform a root canal on a bicuspid that was co-anchoring a front tooth (eye teeth) bridge. This MORON proposed replacing the entire bridge, after performing a root canal on the failing bicuspid, using that same tooth as a SINGLE anchor !!!

Any GD 3rd grader with an erector set would have realized that proposed bridge would have failed within 3 months !!!!

I took my uncle to a competent endodonist (rare individuals) who performed a root canal on the same tooth (while leaving the current bridge in place) and it has lasted several years so far.

Of course THAT root canal cost him $700 for a 90 minute office visit !!!!

Well Leslie Rosa, you are an ignorant fool aren't you? What if it had been YOUR daughter that the good doctor was having sex with? Or maybe that would make you proud, seeing as he's such a fine upstanding citizen. The truth of the matter is that he was doing the dirty with a child. Anyone who is under 18 is legally considered a child. This man was a trusted professional. He's damn lucky it wasn't my daughter. I would have his balls.

LAWYERS !!!

Fork tongued crooks who have nothing to fear from the equally corrupt and amoral agencies that are supposed to
sanction bad acts.

I devoted 4 months to developing two consumer class action cases before presenting them to gang of thieves from Chicago.

These SOBs immediately accept case "A" (magazine subscription fraud) while telling me they would research the merits of "B". Customary contract/agreement signed for me to serve as class plaintiff for A.

4 weeks later I receive a 14 page complaint draft for A and and return it with 5 pages of comments and suggestions. Final draft promised within 2 weeks.

At that point these white collar criminals fell off the radar screen, about the same time they promised to conduct a tele-conference to present a case strategy for B. WHY?

After 3 months of silence I contacted them and questioned their diligence, and promptly received a "Dear Client" letter which terminated our relationship.

It wasn't long before I learned these bastards proceeded to file B in another state, the case which involved one of the most prominent retailers in the US. It just so happens the state where the case was eventually filed was also the state where the Chicago office was conferring with a peer from that office.

It came as NO surprise the state agency that received my 100 page (lawyer misconduct) complaint failed to open a investigatin. These mofos didn't even OPEN it !! The first page (standard complaint form) clearly stated I wanted the file returned (a point I clarified before submitting the materials) but they failed to do so. When contacted they were oblivious to my request to have the file returned, confirming they failed to even scrutinize the first page (much less the 100 pages of documentation) which had the return request boldly highlighted in yellow.

Lawyers are human bacteria who have resisted every attempt to alter the manner which clients complaints are reviewed. Less than 3 percent of complaints are acted upon, and the "sanctions" are frequently secretive wrist slaps. It is understandable these CROOKS are content with the fox guarding the chicken coop arrangement.

Did I miss something in the article about a minor being involved. If not where do you get your information

I have to agree with comment regarding the victim. People often tend to focus on the act itself and forget someone was exploited. A "good" doctor would never put his own needs and desires before that of his patient. Unfortunately I can relate to this patient as I too was exploited sexually by my doctor, Words cannot express the many feelings and extreme hurt I now deal with in trying to sort through this. It has changed me forever and I no longer trust myself let alone any one else. He took advantage of a person who clearly was in a very vunerable state and used this for his own personal gratification.

I'm surprised someone so intelligent would overlook the recommendation of class action status approval from a judge, jurisdictional issues, and the definition of the term "client". A client is someone who pays for someones services.. How much of a retainer did you provide?. It sounds to me that they reviewed your information and determined you would be what we like to call a "problem client". With a story like yours, I surprised you haven't gone straight to the media.

Spoken like a tried and true apologist for the amoral legal community.

Is there a particular reason you failed to comment on the manner in which lawyers benefit from the failure of those "watchdog agencies" to prevent misconduct?

I am quite familiar with all of the elements mentioned, although you appear unaware of the the increasing scarcity of investigative reporters.

http://adage.com/video/article...
http://www.azcentral.com/specials/special01/0...

The last time I searched my computer for CLASS ACTION files/folders resulted in a total count exceeding 2,000, dating back to 1998.

Problem client? Is that defined as someone who is capable of identifying (and developing) a class action issue but could object to quick sell out lawyers who are anxious to drop trou at the fist settlement offer? Lawyers never want a client who is their equal in this type of mega buck class action.

Are you implying it was necessary to front a retainer in order to obtain client status? What was the purpose of our lawyer-client agreement if not to establish a bona fide relationship.

In light of the fact I devoted over 100 hours developing the cases presented, and proved capable of contributing FIVE pages of "refinements" to the initial complaint draft regarding the magazine case, I would value my contribution in excess of $5,000 for the case which these amoral SOBs stole. 50 hours @$100/hr ..........or $7,500 at $150 hr.

What information might they have reviewed, other than my voluminous case files, to determine I was a potential problem? Why didn't they make this determination BEFORE accepting the first case and researching the merits of the second case? Was it just a coincidence that the BIG BUCK case was eventually filed in the state where they were conferring with a peer, who they relied on for guidance and categorized as more capable? Was it just a coincidence the email corresondence I received from the bastard who was assigned this case, promising to conduct a tele conference within 10 days, was dispatched from CA?

Was it just a coincidence the new-and-improved lead class plaintiff had a claim which was 20x the amount of my claim, despite the fact my claim represented the typical damage amount.

EVERYONE realizes 90 percent of lawyers are greed driven, sanctimonious scumbags lacking integrity.

Case in point; I was acquainted with a law student who was the epitome of honesty and integrity before becoming involved in this dishonorable profession. A few years after becoming a lawyer he was sanctioned.

You will note (below) it WAS a contingency case, although not a class action matter. Perhaps these clients were not entitled to be heard since they did not provide a retainer either !!

.......... has been charged by the XXXXXXXXXXXX with lawyer misconduct arising out of a fee dispute with a client in a contingent fee case. We now find that the discipline agreed to by the parties, a public reprimand, is appropriate, and herein set forth the facts and circumstances of this case.

It has been a few years since my last encounter with one of these disgusting vultures.

I know you'd be interested in hearing about the lawyer who attempted to steal $80,000 cash from a client who was a mutual acquaintance. She (the vulture) got the cash as far as the hall safe in her residence before I authored a 50 page complaint to the Florida BAR.

Of course they failed to act on the matter but she was sufficiently spooked to return the funds.....less $5,000 she stole and conveniently categorized as fees for services rendered from her morbidly obsese client with several life threatening illnesses.

NOW YOU REALIZE WHY SHE SCAMMED HIM INTO RELINQUISHING THE CASH.

She was hoping to benefit to the tune of $80,000 cash free income in the event of his death. Unfortunately, as his accountant I had copies of everything and documented the day and time of the $80,000 cash transfer which I witnessed.

She returned the money due to the fact she wanted to avoid putting her neck on the chopping block, being acutely aware of my former association with the IRS.

This was not her only indiscretion. Upon learning about family heirlooms (jewelry) that her "lifelong friend" inherited she didn't waste any time drafting a codicil which redirected these assets from the rightful heirs to her greedy, sweaty palms. This POS was sufficiently clever to realize she had to create a link/association between the matriarch (original owner) and her worthless carcass so the codicil contained a blatant lie about their relationship.

Do you know what the Florida BAR told me when I asked them why they didn't keep a copy of all complaints on file, since it was their policy to discard every complaint they did not act upon after 1 year??

WE DON'T HAVE ROOM TO STORE THE DOCUMENTS !!!

In other words; they decided it would be prudent to destroy any and all evidence which could establish their failure to act and/or habitual misconduct by a member of the dishonorable profession.

Doctors and lawyers frequently share the same loathsome characteristics but lawyers are shielded from misconduct by the inherently bias manner in which they protect their own.

I have hung doctors/dentists out to dry by utilizing state agencies which have jurisdiction over misdeeds. Conversely, lawyers are protected by the biased disciplinary system which protects their larcenous anal sphincter.
