Come out with acquittal from  the  case, mere acquittal would not mean   that the   case  was  false  or  the casec was actuated out of malice. The  action against  the  lawyer should  not be made  except  upon strong and   reasonable grounds and   sufficient material to  support the same , the lawyers  are  officers of the courts and are the  parts  of the judicail system. in order that they may   fearlessly represnt their clients  for redressal  of their grievences  they  need be   protected  from fasle  and vaxatious  allgeations  yet ,you have   remedies agaist the lawyers  also ,  including filing of  complaints  against them  with the bar councial  concerned ,

@ Author

If you have strong evidence leading to proving allegation of 'commission" by way of recoding / writing then only think of taking action otherwise donot burn your youth in such futile exercise during spur of moment thoughts.

2. BCI complaint is again a futile exercise based on presented brief.

3. Compose yourself  / take a pause from current spousal acrimony and contest tooth for tooth allegations that is going to be your biggest payback time to alleged member of the legal system. 


[Always remember the lesser the litigation on floor of FORUM the better predictive outcome one has otherwise welcome to 3,48,94,624 current pending legal cases maze]

These Lawyers take advantage of your misfortune...so if you find you can afford time, energy, money and mind...do not spare him...I have suffered a lot in the hands of lawyers..and after shelling out lacs..i have arrived at one good lawyer...each one has taken advantage...


It is not that lawyers can do whatever they want...there have been numerous cases filed on lawyers...some of them are as below:

  • Name of the advocate is not given in the list of the cases to be heard . notice should have been given to the counsel before marking his absence. Saheed Bhagat Singh Coop[. H.B. Society ltd. v. Improvement Trust Ludhiana, JT 2000 (9) (SC) 54: AIR 2002 SC 3589;

Sharma Advocate v. state of Haryana , 2003 (3) RCR (Cri) 166 (P&H).

If you feel you should take action...go ahead...

 I  have nothing to offer  favorable for those  lawyers    who are  guilty of misconduct , but looking to  the nature of his duties   extra  care is   required  to be taken  when   he is being  prosecuted by  his clients  adversary,  just  as a judge needs protection from  vaxatious allegaltions,  a lawyer should aslo be given due protection so that he  may not be subjected to any sort of fear  while  dischaging  his legal durty ,

agreed with Shonee Kapoor sir.

digression from the main purpose will be time consuming & futile.

Bar council is useless. Clinching evidence of wrongdoing is needed before filing a case in a lawyer. Otherwise it's a waste of time.. Learn and move on otherwise..
