It appears from reading your question that seeking advice from an attorney that pracrices criminal law would be more appropriate. It does not seem to be a matter that mainly involves a tenancy problem.

answered on Mar 19, 2021
I dont know what purpose you are looking to have someone viewed as incompetent or incapacitated, but it sounds like it is either an estate issue or a medical malpractice issue and in either setting, you should meet with a certified specialist by the NJ Supreme Court.

It would be worth your while to at least register a bar complaint against any attorney you feel acted in bad faith. As far as a lawsuit, your best bet would be to consult with an attorney regarding the facts in the case to get an idea if that would be effective.

My lawyer NEVER returns voice mail or my written letter(s). What should I do?
answered on Dec 28, 2019
Within a reasonable time. It doesn't necessarily mean an instantaneous response - an attorney could be in court or deposition when a voice-mail arrives. But within the same day is considered reasonable by many to return calls. If someone is very busy or has pressing circumstances, the... Read more »

Im sure there are lawyers that are willing to help you but that depends on if you have a viable claim. And unfortunately you did not provide us with much information to go on. Please advise on what the underlying claim is regarding and why you believe the attorney committed malpractice.
