So, two lawyers in Ghana have so far confirmed that “Some Lawyers” really exhibit strong signs on very poor professionalism. It is just a total disgrace. Several years ago I engaged the services of one lawyer to assist me in getting my late mothers share certificates transferred to my name. That was a total nightmare. He never was able to perform such a simple task, and I am surprised he is still in business. Just so you are aware, the only reason why I used him was because he was handling a case for my late Mum before she died….hence the connection.
I then went to see another lawyer to perform the same same task I ask the first lawyer to perform. Now this one come recommended from my late Father. Our initial consultation went well and he assured me that he would be able to have everything done for me ASAP. Just as a reminder to him that I was not one to be taken for a ride, I related to him the distasteful business I had with the first lawyer in getting a simple task done. It is almost two years now and I am still waiting for the second lawyer to complete the job I gave him. Is it because I am situated so many miles away from Ghana so he thinks he can. Actually there is another reason. These lawyers have absolutely no sense of obligation towards their clients in performing what they have been paid to do. It is pathetic.
Recent calls to the second lawyer have gone unanswered. On Thursday, I called him three times – not a single pickup. Next week I am going to get my cousin to tack this lawyer down to his office and find out what the dickens his game is. To make matters worse, he is the same lawyer who is supposed to sort out the probate to my late Father and is currently running us round in circles just to sort this out.
