Q: I am looking for an atty, 1) admitted to federal court, to file a suit against a forensic accountant, I have the proof
I have paid for a forensic accounting by Frazier Deeter in GA, and they have discovered MALPRACTICE, & Gross Negligence on the part of the Forensic accountant. The accounting firm is in Alabama. The trustee and trust atty are in Alabama. I also allege that the trustee, has stolen (actutally, the atty admitted in court Sept 25, 2017 that is what happened to my money)$65,000 out of my trust and paid it to the trust atty for HIS legal fees in violation of a court order, ordering that the funds be returned to my trust account. I live in Atlanta, in Fulton County. I need an atty to go into Federal court that can file suit against the Accounting firm to start with, against the E&O insurance, and then file against the trustee and the trust atty too. Perhaps also file criminal charges against the trustee and trust atty too.
A: I'm sure you can find an attorney who will consider taking your case, if you look hard enough and if your case has merit. An attorney can sue the accounting firm, the trustee and the trust attorney. He or she cannot file criminal charges, or even threaten to file criminal charges, and cannot sue the E&O carrier. If a person or company with E&O insurance is sued, they contact their E&O carrier, who may or may not step in and defend.
WARNING: I am not your lawyer and providing you with the generic information, definition, clarification or explanation you seek about a legal matter on this anonymous forum does not make me your lawyer. By answering your question I am only trying to provide you with general information that will deepen your understanding of the legal concept that appears to be an issue for you, that will hopefully guide you in selecting and communicating with a lawyer of your choosing. The reason for all this is that legal problems are intensely fact-driven, and it is impossible to give anyone correct legal advice without comprehensive inquiry by the lawyer into the specific facts of the situation that concerns you, and the law of the jurisdiction in which you reside, and that is impossible to accomplish through this website. Even though I am not your lawyer, if I should later become your lawyer no representation is made that the quality of the legal services to be performed is greater than the quality of legal services performed by other lawyers.
