If you aren't the client  - why is any of this your concern, the client is a grown adult and can address any issues as they choose. If you are the client and you don't like the circmstances, as an adult, simply leave a do something different. While the facts are admittedly "odd" if you are a disgruntled "other parent" and the "client" is your ex, you are treading on REALLY thin ice with such an issue.

Legal Malpractice
The vast majority of attorneys act ethically and diligently representing the interests of their clients. But what happens when you hire a lawyer who has a conflict of interest, makes errors in your representation, is negligent or breaches his or her fiduciary duty? In those instances, you may have grounds for a legal malpractice complaint or lawsuit. Law firms that represent the victims of legal malpractice can help you file a complaint with your state's lawyer registration and disciplinary commission, while also filing a civil lawsuit against your former attorney.
