: I would report to the police IMMEDIATELY that the attorney threatened your life and ask for an order of protection. The write the bar association with a copy of the complaint.
: Also file for harrasment in housing court....
: : Where: just after a Housing Court case, right in the hallway just outside the courtroom doors after LL's case was vacated.
: : Is this HOSTILE treatment?
: : What recourse does a tenant have?
: : Question: if this same attorney represents LL in another case, can tenant ask that he be declared hostile and barred from representing LL in a possible future legal proceeding?
: : Question: are there other remedies, e.g., New York Bar Association, to appeal to for "unprofessional conduct" or more serious recriminations?
There are Disciplinary Rules for lawyers: I ran into them on the net. Somehow, I ended up on the NY State Bar Assoc webpage below. Click on Public for consumer info, on Ethics for the actual Code/Law.
Hope this helps.
