Attorney Patrick Bailey, who’s representing embattled real estate attorney, Jennifer Messado, says he’s filed an appeal against the General Legal Council, GLC’s decision to strike her from the roll of practicing attorneys.
The GLC made the decision at a hearing on Saturday. Messado has been facing mounting legal issues in recent months. She’s before the courts answering to about a dozen cases of fraud.
Patrick Bailey is representing her on the civil matters.
Mr. Bailey says, an appeal has already been filed against the GLC’s decision.
In a rare move in August, Messado asked the Supreme Court to bar her from practicing law in Jamaica.
Attorney Christopher Townsend is representing Messado in the criminal cases brought against her.
