BELLEVILLE–A St. Clair County man is suing his attorney and the attorney's law firm, alleging misrepresentation in a claim against the plaintiff's father's estate.
Albert J. Davinroy Jr. filed the lawsuit Nov. 6 in St. Clair County Court against Charles Stegmeyer, individually, and Stegmeyer & Stegmeyer, which employs the defendant.
In late 2006, Davinroy retained Stegmeyer to represent him in a claim against his father's estate. According to the complaint, Stegmeyer breached the legal standard of care and his duty to the plaintiff. Specifically, the plaintiff charges the defendant said Davinroy had reached an agreement about the estate, which the plaintiff denies.
Furthermore, Davinroy alleges Stegmeyer waived the plaintiff's right to participate in his mother's estate and if not for the defendant's negligence the plaintiff would never have done that.
Dainvroy seeks a trial by jury and at least $1 million. He is representing himself.
St. Clair County Court case number 15-L-635.
