The State Bar of Arizona’s Law Day Legal Aid Clinics were created in an effort to provide access to justice while joining the rest of the nation in celebrating the legal profession. Each year on May 1, the United States celebrates Law Day. Originally proposed by the American Bar Association (ABA), in 1958, President Dwight D. Eisenhower proclaimed the first Law Day to strengthen our country’s heritage of liberty, justice and equality under the law. It was made part of the U.S. Code as Public Law 87-20 on April 7, 1961. The concept was to recognize the importance of the rule of law and both its effect and structure in our country. Over the years, legal and civic organizations nationwide have used these general ideas to develop educational programs for the public.

The State Bar of Arizona is a non-profit organization that operates under the supervision of the Arizona Supreme Court. The Bar includes approximately 17,000 active attorneys and provides education and development programs for the legal profession and the public. Since 1933 the Bar and its members have been committed to serving the public by making sure the voices of all people in Arizona are heard in our justice system.

    I am a member in a 2 member LLC, Ace Public Adjusters SW.
    My partner and I opened a business account with Chase Bank approximately 7/7/12. The branch location is 1940 S Val Vista Dr. Ste 107 Mesa AZ, 85204.

    Our business account bank managers instructed us how to endorse checks for deposits.
    My business partner and I had a dispute on 7/17/12.
    I returned to Philadelphia on 8/5/12, after attempting to resolve dispute to no avail.
    The account was frozen on 8/31/12 with approximately $ 186,000 in account balance.
    When I inquired about the account, I was told that Chase could no longer discuss any matters with me because I was deleted from the account, this being done without my consent in any matter. I later discovered that my partner had removed me from the account without my consent.

    I received a letter from the Insurance commission shortly thereafter informing me of an investigation into Ace’s business practices focusing on improper check endorsement procedures, although we followed bank protocol.

    After an administrative hearing in 12/2013 my insurance license was revoked for one year. Outside of tarnishing my professional reputation, I have incurred a monumental loss of income due to this situation.

    Any help shall be greatly appreciated. I am looking for an attorney to take case on a contingency fee basis. I have been instructed that the statute of limitations for a breach of contract claim is 6 years.
