We represented a Vietnamese woman who was essentially brought over to this country by a man she met on the internet. They married and he turned out to be physically and emotionally abusive and she sought a divorce. She scraped together $3,000 (borrowing from some friends and good Samaritans) to get her divorce and went to a local attorney active in (preying upon might be a better term) the Vietnamese community. The lawyer took her $3,000 retainer and did nothing for her. She tried to get her money back and he concocted some work that he claimed he did and actually claimed she owed him money. After six months of battling with the attorney (expending perhaps $40,000 of our time in the process), we got her the full retainer back plus some money, and she was able to get a new attorney and her divorce.
