Can a lawyer be sued for services?

Can a lawyer be sued for services under the consumer protection  act?

Does he come under the purview of services as defined under s.2(o) of the said act ?

If cannot be sued are there any relevant recent case laws of the hon'ble supreme court  or the national or state commission for the same?

Deficient services by a lawyer does attract penal action for it incurs losses to his client.

 

* By the way, amidst some teething problems, I am forced to request for help on something related to this.

* Can a lawyer be sued for disservices to the opponent, law per se. (This lawyer has: 1) Wilfully not observed court rules and has resorted to unethical practices. 2) Has misled court on oath. - These shocking acts are absolute truth and has caused me immense losses.

 

What can I do now?

Yes, Lawyer can be sued before Consumer court for the service deficiency under the Consumer protection act, but at present I am not having any judgment of Supreme court but in tamil nadu district and state consumer forum had order in favour of the consumer and held lawyer liable   for the service deficiency. you can browse in the concern website for the same and same time a proper compliant can be lodged before the Bar council of the state.

thanking you

Lawers are not exempt from being sued. A complaint under The Consumer Protection Act can be filed for "Deficiency in services"

He does  come under the purview of services as defined under s.2(o) of the said act ?

Lawyer can or cannot be sued. 

 

 

It's a tough one sided game. He is a lawyer. Fighting case is his daily routine. He impose a new false case on you daily. No matter if you win all. Who will suffer ??

 

 Also by the time lawyer get convicted ( huh) you feel yourself convicted & punished before.

 

If lawyers can get convicted than maximum false 498a cases are lawyer generated. Didn't any one get punished ?

Sure, there is lot of extortion, cheating. This is what question within answer at Item -2 of this thread pertains. It is hence important aspect. I am victim of haunting by the main cheat, sub-cheats, incidental cheats, unforeseen cheat in this laWYER.

 

How to get this culprit punished for he has cheated very justice in the very portal that should have given justice?

To avail a legal remedy is a matter of personal ability and capability as these are time consuming and expensive too. A practicing lawyer has so many colleagues to defend and support him. It is always safe to complain Bar Council of the State.

Yeah, it is really a difficult one to answer this question for myself being an advocate. 
An advocate can be sued for his deffeicient services.

With due regard to good advocates who have made all the difference in getting justice, it is worth note that of late, advocates have ALSO got accuostomed to being business minded. While winning by rightful means should always be the motive, aim; advocates use their skills, professional knowledge to indulge in tricks, deceit. One illegal trick will cause loss to the other side and do all the difference for justice per se.

On the contrary, if the lawyer X is not competent or has not contested his opponent lawyer Y in some trick, then X would have rendered deficient service to his own client. This one lapse might make all the difference to this client.

Thus, both deficient service AND illegality (depending on where you are placed, what is the illegality, by whom etc) are definitely a matter that attracts penal action by the client or the opposition.
 

Law is law. Law should be law. Law is, should be equal to you, him, it, they, ....... and me. Anything wrong?
