My name was forgered to a Quick Claim Deed wherein 2 pieces of my property was conveyed to a woman I never met except to go into her office with her son-in-law. I had signed an agreement to sell one piece of said property to him for the cash sum of $150,000.00 while I was incarcerated in City. He was suppose to get me out of jail right after signing this agreement and was suppose to pay for bench warrants amounting to around $2000.00 as a down payment on this sale. He did not get me out of jail then. He left me and come back hours later. I believe he took that short agreement to this woman's office and they prepared this quick claim deed and forged my signature from that agreement. It happen in 2007, the Complaint filed in 2010, and evrtytime it comes up for trial, it is delay again and again. That woman sold one piece for $144,000.00, is renting the other property and I have received nothing from them as yet. My attorney charged them with 4 counts of fraud, unfair business practices. So much more was involved. How about exploitation of someone who is unwell, mentally disabled and incapacited from drug addiction, and an older adult widowed, alone, vulnerable? forgery? I know I did not sign that deed, the initials they used as mine is not the way I initial documents. Larceny? When they took over my property, they threw all my belongings in a 6 stall barn where they were stored, and all my belongings in my house where I lived into a large trash container w/o any care of consideration for me. Money Laundering? Theft? The woman said she put the deed in her name to keep the man who first contacted me, since he had a judgement against him, owed taxes and money to the government. So, my attorney is telling me they will settle with me by giving me the house back, and I will have to get a judgement against the man when he sells some of his property, he will pay me then for mine. I don't believe this is correct, the property was in the woman's name when it was sold, so she is responsible to give me the $144,000.00 back, if I win my case. I fired my attorney last week; he was doing nothing for me; more like for the other side and this woman's attorney is my attorney's x-law partner. Don't trust him and he called me stupid and dumb for what I did? That man is saying I gave him that property to get me out of jail. I wasn't obviously well and was conned. Does anyone have any suggestions and could you please give me advice as to my next step as far as is there a number of days I have to hire another attorney and how much time do I have before the trial?
