    Bar Complaint Against Former Lawyer Picazio Filed By Crystal Sheffiel

    SNIP~The Florida Bar Association has dismissed the complaints against attorney Kim Picazio alleged by Crystal Sheffield.
    In the complaint, Crystal Sheffield alleged that:

    "...Ms. Picazio violated Rule 4-1.6 by disclosing confidential information concerning her representation of Crysal related to the search and investigation of her missing child, Haleigh Cummings. Crystal also contend that Ms. Picazio did not act with diligence in filing a modification of he child support. Ms. Picazio responded to the allegations in the complaint and rebuttal with specific denials of each allegation and a detailed history of her involvement in the case (see the letter)."

    On of Picazio's rebuttals to the complaint was rather harmful to Crystal Sheffield and the perception some may have of her:

    "...Ms. Picazio also contends that your current living situation, health concerns, inability to work, and drug addiction/seizures prevented her from filing a petition for a change in custody. All lawyers, as officers of the court, have an obligation to refrain from filing frivolous pleadings or papers, and may.be subject tocourt-imposed sanctions for having done so, This.is an area that falls within the exercise of professional judgment by the lawyer, and is not appropriate as a reason for discipline to be imposed."


    In this 97.3 The Sky exclusive podcast interview, attorney Kim Picazio blames a blogger for spreading falsehoods over the internet and worming her way into the confidence of Marie Griffis and Crystal Sheffield.

    Picazio tells The Sky she advised Crystal Sheffield and Marie Griffis against the now controversial Sam Watkins Concert and wanted Pay-Pal links and wording on the Haleighbug Center website that asked for donations to be removed.

    AUDIO: KIM PICAZIO 16:53

    Some of the more volatile claims Picazio made in the interview suggested that the blogger-in-question was also involved as a moderator for a Haleigh Cummings forum that was operated by a high risk sex offender.

    Picazio did not refer to the blogger by name.

    Thanks Curvecuti!

    Many things of interest in there.

    One rumor that is dispelled that has been argued over and over is that Crystal was never properly served back for the 2005 original custody hearing. Kim put THAT rumor to rest (even though many of us put up links from custody docs).

    From the bar letter:

    (Top of page 2)

    That proves Crystal WAS served & simply did not go to the first hearing.


    Prayers for beautiful, little Haleigh!

    RIP to all the angels who were taken from us too soon!

    If you listen to the interview with KP she also says she withdrew from the case. MG said she was let go/fired. Someone is telling a mis-truth there. Also KP says it was not her spreading info. on the net, wonder who it was posting here, pretending to be her?

    Well a mod talked to Kim and so did Tricia and that was her posting here. Maybe she wasn't posting elsewhere, but she was here.

    I am very sorry to read the information disclosed in that letter because I have truly wanted to believe that Crystal Sheffield was an honest and supportive mother. Am I reading the letter correctly? Does it say that The reason that Crystal hired Picazio was to assist with getting the child support lowered? Haleigh was missing a month and that is what she wanted KP to do? TIA

    Sad. Horrible.

    Did the bar association investigate the reports that Crystal said she was not notified of the custody hearing, and found that she was notified? Could someone explain that to me?

    I have not read the letter yet,but, I have to ask about who and what forum are was Kim talking about in regards to the sex offender?

    Why should Crystal have to pay support for HaLeigh when she is missing? Better yet, what kind of man accepts money for a child he does not have? Sure hope hes putting it in a trust or account for Haleigh in the future, well, if DCF doesn't take away his remaining child-
