    Default Peace Officer Bill of Rights (Pobra)- Legal Malpractice--

    My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: CA
    My question involves malpractice in the state of: CA

    Are there any CA plaintiff employment-malpractice attorneys out there?
    I was a sworn peace officer & had a work investigation, as such I was afforded certain rights the average person is not. There were multiple due process violations in my case. My union assigned attorney actually stated, the "judges don't care about due process issues" At arbitration, this attorney DID NOT get into these issues. I was horrified! In POBOR, due process issues negate allegations. So much incompetence; I could write 15 pgs. I filed a Mandamus Writ, which may be dismissed BUT these attorneys have been aghast & agree there was malpractice & possibly intentional negligence. They are supportive of me suing for malpractice. The problem is that malpractice attorneys know nothing of POBOR & are unnecessarily intimidated, thinking it's more than it is. So, i prefer one who has experience in both, but it isn't happening! I have found only ONE attorney (in Sacramento) who has both POBRA & legal malpractice experience, but he won't take the case. I've been thru every atty on the state bar site w/ specialization in malpractice. Aside from being intimidated by lack of POBOR knowledge, they don't believe how ANY DUE PROCESS matter negates allegations as they are skeptical. They can't fathom how they could have changed my outcome. Does anyone know of any attorneys who would take this type of case??? HELP!!!

    I doubt that you are going to get the responses you desire. And please don't open duplicate threads. They will only be deleted.

    You can use the lawyer directory:

    Neither can I.

    What were the allegations?

    What was the outcome of the arbitration?

    And what part(s) of the Police Officers Bill of Rights were violated and how do you think addressing them at arbitration would have changed things? Cite the sections:

    Oh, the poor cop feels like his rights were violated...my heart bleeds.

    All your OP states is that you believe that your rights were violated, as a peace officer, and you want to do something about it. You provide no other info beyond that. What were the alleged violations? Just because your union appointed attorney says that you had your rights violated doesn't mean they were or that judges don't take process seriously. Of course they take process seriously! If they don;t their verdicts may be overturned on appeal and that doesn't look good for them, sort of like punching a handcuffed girl in the face.

    Without details we can't actually tell you anything.

    Oh, and we don't do recommendations/referrals.

    This was totally unnecessary in your response but at least we know from where you come.

    That is not an acceptable post. If we had any moderation I'm sure it would be deleted.

    Ya Mark, did you forget that this is a pro-prosecution, pro-conviction, pro-cop website?

    Wow, it's a good thing I toned down my rhetoric!

    The irony of a cop complaining that his rights have been violated screams out for comment, doesn't it? As for way out of line I would say that the actions of police have been way out of line.

    If we had proper moderation perhaps my comments would be deleted but they weren't. Shoulda, woulda, coulda.

    Two wrongs don't make a right.

    Though I do question the OP's statement, "...as such I was afforded certain rights the average person is not." I'd like to know what right additional rights he thinks he has.
