Attorney Larry Handley Unethical

I had a huge problem with honesty regarding my attorney, Larry Handley of Ankeny, Iowa of the Handley Law Firm. He made serious errors in court (cost me thousands of dollars) for which he promised several times to adjust my bill, but he later went back on his word and refused. I had to file a complaint and finally the Attorney Fee Arbitration Committee forced him to reimburse me a significant amount due to his errors and inappropriate charges. He also misled me on whether it was mandatory for him to be present at a mediation, for which he charged me. I found out it was not mandatory as he had told me. He charged me for a meeting and phone call which never occurred, but he refused to provide a record or proof. I knew there was no meeting because I worked all day that day and have the record. Very poor representation, service, professionalism, communication and effort. Handley is also padding his online reviews, which is unethical and pathetic.

I'm mad because even though I have a long list of heinous offenses I'm giulty of, I deserve another chance.
My relationship with my sister was strictly consensual and we see no harm to society if we had been left alone to pursue it.
