I'm not sure what kind of attorney to consult for this.
I was looking at a piece of real estate listed by the seller's agent. I openly revealed the name of my boyfriend, talked about some personal things to the agent. I didn't think anything of it. I joined the realtor to my FB page to share some artwork images of my work.
A few days later, my boyfriend casually asked how I knew her. He could see her joined to my facebook page. I was alerted that he may not like me looking at property and it made me think he knew her somehow. He didn't say anything more. But it alarmed me because I didn't want to share anything about it at that time. So I contacted the realtor via email, explained that she may know him and I didn't want the information shared with him that I had looked at property. I had already said his name to her in person so I included it in the email.
A couple of weeks later, my bf texted me to send him the email I sent her because his job was on the line as a result of it. Apparently this realtor is involved in something as her CPA has forwarded my email to his office and there is a review for disclosure in progress. He could lose his job. This also means he could lose his retirement from his government position. This is all due to my assumption that she knew him- whether in a social setting or worked together to determine property values or whatever. I didn't claim to know how they knew each other. They could have dated for all I knew. I just wanted to get out of the situation quietly without any further association.
As a result of this email being utilized by the CPA to trigger an investigation, I no longer have a place to live. My plans to retire with my BF are now dissolved, my relationship is ended. My plans for retirement just got wrecked and we are sorting out our mutual funds we jointly had toward a retirement home purchase, our join accounts are being separated.
I asked her not to say anything and she instead involved her CPA and now I'm out of a home, missing work to try to find one, potentially caused injury to another person who can sue me, http://local-attorney-lawyer-search.com/murrieta-attorney/ and since I had planned to retire with this person who would be getting a pension, my retirement plans are wrecked.
Is there a certain type of attorney that can help me go after the CPA and the Realtor for these damages? Can I sue her agency - Coldwell Banker Boyd Hassell
Sorry, but you've probably got nowhere to go with this.
The realtor had no obligation to keep your communication private so relaying it to whoever did not do anything wrong to you. And there's certainly nothing private about anything you put on facebook (as many have learned to their detriment).
I can't imagine how all this escalated to where you are now but that has more to say about your relationship with your boyfriend than anything else.
You can talk to a lawyer who specializes in defamation but I seriously doubt that you'll get anywhere.
