This previous week, MyrtleBeachSC Information lined The Honorable Choose Timothy H. Pogue’s dismissal of an effort by Lawyer Sandye Hicks to declare an Horry County mom unstable.

We included the statements of a number of victims of Horry County Household Court docket in our article.

A number of members of the Horry County neighborhood reached out to us after the article was revealed. One instance is a textual content we acquired from Carolina Forest resident Jimmy Whelen.

He writes, “For my part Sandye Hicks lied and deceived a S.C. household court docket Choose in a movement to compel listening to the place the opposing counsel, Holly Wall, now Choose Wall was making an attempt to maintain my lawyer from deposing the previous husband. Holly wall made many false allegations about me throughout that listening to that have been off matter and never related to why we have been assembly in court docket that day. We have been assembly for a movement to compel that Ms Wall filed in an try to preserve us from deposing husband #2. She had her personal agenda to take the main target away from why we have been there. Holly Wall lied to the court docket telling the Choose that the FaceBook data that we subpoenaed have been unreasonable and that her consumer couldn’t solely give us the data from the date of marriage. The choose then dominated in her favor based mostly off of that mislead the court docket. We later reached out to Ms Wall countering her declare as false after doing a easy 5 minute google search proving her declare as grossly misrepresenting. I’ve later reported this beahavior in addition to another regarding beahavior of Ms Wall that I discovered to be unprofessional to the SC disciplinary counsel for legal professionals.

Ms. Wall handed out and supplied pharmaceuticals throughout a deposition stating that her husband was a pharmacist and “she will get the great things”. The one person who accepted her supply to take pharmaceuticals was her consumer. In the course of the movement to compel listening to Sandye Hicks was performing as a GAL in my case. She informed the court docket that she researched the matter concerning the former husband and located that it was not of relevance to permit my lawyer to conduct a deposition of the Defendant’s former partner (husband 2 of 4) at age 33, who would have been in a position to corroborate practically equivalent complaints concerning the sample of abandoning marriages abruptly seemingly as a result of psychological instability. My lawyer requested the payment assertion that confirmed the place Sandye Hicks did that analysis. Sandye Hicks refused to reply to the request. The payment statements that we acquired from Sandye Hicks didn’t present any analysis of indicating that was true. Due to this ruling towards us and Sandye Hicks’ affect on the court docket, we have been unable to depose husband 2 of 4 at the moment. That was a extreme set again to my case. I’ve requested Sandye Hicks for an digital copy of her payment statements and she or he refused to supply them stating that she already mailed them to me. As a GAL in my case I felt she was hostile and uncooperative. I felt she wrote experiences leaving out important info that may have favored me and as a male plaintiff and appeared to at all times favor the mom each likelihood she received.

Sandye Hicks informed me the primary time we met that it’s confirmed {that a} youngster is healthier off with it’s mom. It was at that second that I knew my case could be in jeopardy as a father preventing for custody regardless of being sincere and reporting the mom’s regarding psychological and emotional instability. My claims of the mom’s suicidal ideation that I personally witnessed by no means made it into any of Sandye Hicks’ experiences. I attempted reporting Sandye Hicks’ nefarious habits to a random SC household court docket choose however my letter didn’t get a response. I contacted the SC Bar Affiliation for Attorneys and was suggested that there isn’t any mechanism in SC for disciplining legal professionals who’re assigned to circumstances as GALs. They might not assist me to report this habits.

Because the article acknowledged, this mother in our earlier article is at present representing herself.

Nonetheless, on a Fb submit, the area people factors out that she was beforehand represented by legal professional Kenneth Massey of Conway, S.C. Legal professional Kenneth Massey then pushed the Mother off onto one other Conway legal professional, James Marshall Biddle. The submit additionally factors out the entire connections beneath.

Legal professional Biddle has been a frequent customer of the South Carolina Supreme Court docket for ethics violations. He was truly suspended from practising legislation for 3 years. Guess who represented Mr. Biddle in his quest to combat these allegations, none apart from Legal professional Kevin Barth. Wait….it will get worse!💣 Legal professional Kevin Barth, of Florence, defended him towards a number of violations centered round Probate Court docket. Legal professional Kevin Barth stands out for his extremely questionable and suspicious actions associated to the Jo Hanna probate case, as reported by Fitsnews.

▪️One in all Mr. Biddle’s violations concerned Horry County Probate Court docket. On July 2012, The Probate Choose in Horry County discovered Mr. Biddle was in “willful contempt” and he was fined. This was after quite a few requests to supply paperwork involving the closing of an property and the court docket giving him extensions. Sound acquainted?

▪️In one other Probate case, Mr. Biddle failed to reply to a consumer’s repeated pressing requests to assist her defend the belongings of an property. He lied to her stating her case had been scheduled for court docket nevertheless it by no means was. The consumer needed to ultimately get one other legal professional to file a petition to take away the private consultant based mostly on breach of fiduciary obligation. This was roughly 18 months after Mr. Biddle was first contacted. Once more, this all sounds very acquainted.

▪️Mr. Biddle was reinstated to follow legislation in 2022 however with strict circumstances. Nonetheless, we all know that doesn’t imply a lot in South Carolina.

▪️Mr. Barth can be the legal professional on the middle of the Jo Hanna probate case. In the event you bear in mind the attorneys for Craig Hanna (Jo Hanna’s eldest son) have vigorously fought to get the court docket transcripts from a Probate listening to that passed off in October and November of 2022. For over 8 months attorneys have been informed there are not any transcripts to most not too long ago discovering on the market are transcripts and Craig Hanna’s attorneys paid for these transcripts in January of 2023. Probate Choose Marvin Lawson who presided over that case has retained his personal legal professional, Desa Ballard. After a FITSNews article got here out in regards to the whereabouts of lacking transcripts, Ms. Ballard contacted legal professional Tucker Participant to state it was Mr. Barth who was holding up the method. Per an settlement between attorneys, they have been to separate the price of the transcripts however Mr. Barth has by no means made cost. The Hanna case entails a affected person with a terminal sickness who was exploited for tens of millions in belongings, but Mr. Barth has stalled this case for months. Time just isn’t a good friend of Ms. Hanna’s however this doesn’t appear to be a priority of Mr. Barth’s. We additionally surprise if Choose Lawson has reported Kevin Barth to the Workplace of Disciplinary Council for not paying his half.

3️⃣You may surprise, if this the place Mr. Barth’s involvement ends? Nope! As this Mother fought for her youngsters, experiencing harassment, gaslighting, over $100,000 in charges, she additionally came upon Kevin Barth could be the mediator for her case. BUT WAIT!!! Didn’t Kevin Barth characterize legal professional Marshall Biddle in his case relating to ethics violations? Battle of curiosity? One would suppose since Biddle was a consumer of Barth’s, particularly regarding violations that disregard the legislation, Barth and Biddle shouldn’t be conducting any circumstances collectively. Nonetheless, it occurred.

4️⃣The Hanna household has been a sufferer of Kevin Barth’s sarcastic and outrageous remarks in court docket however digging a bit deeper we see they aren’t the one victims. It was famous in a court docket transcript, throughout a household court docket mediation, legal professional and mediator Kevin Barth left the room to take a name from a specialist witness in Texas. Everyone knows cellphone data might be subpoenaed in order that’s a plus, however why would a mediator depart to take a prolonged name throughout a mediation the place the most effective curiosity of minor youngsters are concerned? Did this Mother must pay Mr. Barth for the hour he left the room?

What’s extra fascinating is what’s famous within the court docket transcript overheard by a witness in that mediation. This individual was not a celebration to the case. After being gone for fairly someday, the witness acknowledged after “about an hour”, Mr. Barth got here again into the room. When Guardian Advert Litem Sandye Hicks requested Mr. Barth how his name went, the witness claims with a smile Mr. Barth smugly mentioned “you may get them to say something for those who pay them sufficient”. Do what? If you wish to see the transcript info, please view the feedback beneath. (click on embedded Fb submit to see feedback.)

5️⃣Right here’s the place it will get even crazier. Perhaps if Mr. Barth had been extra centered on that mediation involving what’s in the most effective curiosity of the minor youngsters, the mediated settlement wouldn’t have been withdrawn. The mediation settlement may have by no means been endorsed beneath the legislation. Once more, this was an settlement created by Kevin Barth. 😡

6️⃣ Now this Mother is making an attempt to get the $20.000 again in authorized charges she gave Legal professional Kenneth Massey. Kenneth Massey wished off the case and bear in mind despatched the Mother to Legal professional Marshall Biddle.

There will probably be a dispute decision listening to in Florence involving this matter. Nonetheless, we now have additionally been informed Kenneth Massey serves as “Mentor” for Mr. Biddle because of the SC ethics violations and Mr. Biddle will probably be attending this dispute decision listening to with Massey. You actually can’t make these things up.
