Complaint / review text:
My family had 110 acres of farmland in Saluda, SC which they had proudly and happily owned since 1917. Then, in 2003, a Saluda, SC lawyer along with one of his friends decided to execute a most devious plot to take our family's property from us for little or nothing. Between 2003-2008, this lawyer along with his friend lied, cheated, filed false court documents, and also publicly harassed and embarrassed my family. When this lawyer decided to retire from practice and his friend got sick (and soon thereafter died), Attorney Kathy O. Rushton, serving as Judge/Special Referee (along with the GAL and another attorney who had affiliation with the Saluda, SC lawyer) got heavily involved in carrying out this most devious plot with their continuation of even more lies, misuse of court procedures, falsifying of court documents, and degradation of my family.in December 2013, this trio (the Judge/Special Referee, the GAL, the other lawyer) decided to just finally outright take my family's property. Without my family's knowledge, they sold our property on March 28,2014. Then, in April 2014, they worked together to distribute only a small fraction of the proceeds from this sale to only SOME of my family members (knowingly, they intentionally omitted distributing any funds to some of my family's rightful heirs). For their own self-profit, Rushton, along with these other legal professionals, then kept the majority of the money from their outright taking and then selling of my family's heirs property.
