I was talking to a friend about my lousy lawyer who I paid money to write a petition for habeas relief for charges I was innocent of of and who took my cash and never lifted a finger
Well looka here. He finally got his ass in a crack
Niener, niener, niener, bite my fucking wiener
On April 28, 2014, Ronald W. Danforth [#05352970], 50, of McKinney, agreed to a 36-month partially probated suspension effective June 1, 2014, with the first two months actively served and the remainder probated. The 296th District Court of Collin County found that Danforth committed professional misconduct by violating Rules 3.02 [in the course of litigation, a lawyer shall not take a position that unreasonably increases the costs or other burdens of the case or that unreasonably delays resolution of the matter], 7.02(a)(3) [a lawyer shall not make or sponsor a false or misleading communication about the qualifications or the services of any lawyer or firm. A communication is false or misleading if it is likely to create an unjustified expectation about results the lawyer can achieve, or states or implies that the lawyer can achieve results by means that violate these rules or other law], and 8.04(a)(4) [a lawyer shall not engage in conduct constituting obstruction of justice]. Danforth was ordered to pay $3,500 in attorneys’ fees and direct expense
Here is a post from someone else who hired this slob.
My husband went to jail and I contacted this attorney Ronald Danforth for advice he had told me to just let him sit in jail and start paying him as soon as i could. My husband sat in jail for 4 and a half months and Ronald Danforth never went to visit him, I constantly called Ronald to let tell him to go visit my husband in jail and he said he would, but never did, My husbands parents and I gave him almost $4000.00 in those four and a half months and then he said we were not paying him fast enough so he was not gonna be his attorney. I asked for our money back so we could find another attorney and he said no refunds. We never signed a contract saying he would be my husbands attorney for this case and he never went to visit my husband to sign a contract either, so is this even legal to steal our money. Ronald Danforth told me that he would not give me the money back but would work with the attorney he got from jail, that never happened either, Funny thing is my husbands attorney that was given to him in jail for the misdemeanor was Ronald and he didnt help with that either....Disappointed in this attorney! We did find another attorney for him and was charged 10,000 less than what Ronald was charging. just saying look around before you decide because i was screwed badly... I am trying to find someone to help fight this so I can get my money back since he wasn't our attorney. i have all my receipts to show what i paid.
But wait there is even more.
