Statement of Claim
Claimant says:
"I paid attorney Kassum Dakkalavah to represent my cousin, whom I had Durable Power Of Attorney at the time, to fight against an illegal foreclosure in which my cousin was a victim of identity theft on 09/2010. In Nov. 2010, I was getting notices of a hearing, that were to be sent to this attorney. I contacted the clerk, learned this Attorney never placed himself as Attorney fo record, and the court had my cousin as a pro-se litigant. I gave the information for this attorney, contacted him, and was given a lame excuse which didn't make any sense. learned in July 2011, the evaluation panel had ruled in favor of my cousin to eliminate the mortgage, and pay my cousin, this unethical Attorney never responded to the panels decision, which cause the opposing side to file for dismissal, and sanctions for duplicate work, and deposition summary. This attorney never signed an agreement with me, or my company, in which I paid from my business acct, he did not show up for a hearing that sanctions were wrongfully placed on my cousin for his negligence, I from my business, provided him all of the documentation including handwriting expert opinion that I had done, and gave him the case on a silver platter. Before learning that he was the one that dropped the ball on my cousin's home, I emailed him and told him I would pay to move forward, not knowing what had occurred with the evaluation's decision, and him not answering the decision. Attorney Kassum wanted me to pay him another $4-7k, to move forward with the case that he had already dropped the ball. After I told him I retrieved the documents that explained what had happened, and that I would not pay another dime, and that he would get an invoice from me with all of the work that I paid him to do, that I did ,and forwarded to him via, email, and I then was told, on the speaker phone in the witness of 2 paralegals, and an assistance, little did I know he held over 95% of shares with the bank that was being litigated against. I recently received a notice from attorney that he is trying to sue me for over $9k, indicating work he did,and I did not pay him. I want to counter sue for damages, malpractice, negligence, and conflict of interest, as well as money taken for services that were not provided, and breach of contract, and a full refund of the $3k that was paid to him from my business account, that he did not give me a contract to sign, he only had my cousin to sign a retainers agreement with him. Also, on the invoice he sent, has all the wrong dates. I would like to be compensated for $300k for misrepresentation, and legal malpractice."
