Respected Learned Advocates,
My friend went to a reputed lawyer in a criminal case through a friend.
He did not follow up well with the lawyer thinking reputed lawyer will take care of all things. Later, it wa found that lawyer has not quashed the FIR in High Court. After 6 months when my friend came to know about FIR quashing limitation he approached lawyer who simply said the time has expired and told my friend that the case can be quashed in high court via CRL-P. It has been 2 years lawyer filed CRL-P but still it has not been quashed. It is found that memos are not moved in court for faster closure. Is this ethical ? My friend is taking treatment at NIMHANs due to contant fear, he has also lost job as well.
All of a sudden the lawyer is behaving in a manner that my friend go to another lawyer. But not telling directly, he was bit abusive and arrogant in his last meeting.
Thanks in Advance
