I'd imagine that behavior like this is likely to get him dis-barred. Lawyers are supposed to act ethically and within the bounds of the law. You have a legal right to be anchored where you are... and he's breaking the law vandalizing your boat and cutting your mooring/anchoring equipment.

BTW, the jack@$$ sounds as bad as the one that was suing a drycleaner for $8,000,000 for losing a pair of pants. Yes, the idiot who did that was not only a lawyer, but at the time a sitting judge. He's been disbarred since IIRC.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Do not be too surprised.
Typically, the ethics committee of the bar assoc is made up of... you guessed it lawyers.

In texas, theres 15 members, 5 perm, 5 ad-hoc, and 5 "members of the community" (read 3 lawyers and 2 that are tied by the groin to lawyers)

The Commission for Lawyer Discipline, is made up of 12 members, six attorneys appointed by the President of the State Bar and six public members appointed by the Supreme Court of Texas, all can be (and currently are) barristers.

It also might be worth talking to the local media... it always amazes me how much power the local TV station has over things like this.... Of course, I'm a bit spoiled, since I know a lot of journalists and can pretty much get camera time if I want it.

I would be willing to make a small wager that nothing good will come of this
many cops don't care about petty crime as long as nobody gets hurt and the bar assoc will have a good laugh at your expense. then you'll get sued for making 'false claims'.

good luck

If he gets photographic or video proof of the problem, I don't see how it could possibly be ignored by police or be considered making "false claims.".

No one told him to go ahead without getting some sort of proof of the misdeeds.

Because too many lawyers are dirt, present company excepted.
Too many cops are lazy or too busy or both.
At least that's the experience in my town. i could fill up a couple of gigs with the crap I've seen here.

Look how much it took to fight that dirtbag nyfong. i have no trust in the legal system to police itself.
Just because you are right does not mean the law is on your side.
