OKLAHOMA CITY - Our In Your Corner team tracks down a former Oklahoma attorney accused of turning his back on his clients.
The Oklahoma Supreme Court disbarred Jay Trenary in January for "neglecting" several of his clients, including Bill Foster.
“I don't think he deserves to be a lawyer, period,” he said.
Foster alleges Trenary still owes him money and nearly cost him his case.
“Our opponents in the lawsuit filed a summary judgment that we didn't know anything about,” he said.
Trenary denies doing sloppy work and claims he didn’t try to defraud anyone.
“I think there's a reasonable dispute as to how much money I earned,” he said.
Trenary’s troubles have been well documented on NewsChannel 4.
The former attorney was a budding-star prosecutor but, in 2011, he went from defender to defendant.
There were more arrests, a conviction and client complaints that ended up costing Trenary his license.
The former attorney told Scott Hines he didn't feel like he was given a fair shake.
He said, “Absolutely does not fit the crime.”
