Can my friend get his money back from the immigration lawyer that ripped him off?
My friend got back three years ago. He hired a lawyer that took his $6000. The visa application was rejected. We started over. This time I filled everything out for him. He only signed the documents. It was approved by the USCIS, and is now in the hands of the US Embassy. She will be here in a month or so.
HIs lawyer did not do her job. How can he get his money back? The case is too big for small claims court, and no other lawyer will take the case. One lawyer that he called said, "Incompetence is not a crime". I thought that was kind of a rude comment.
