Mary Frances Prevost, who billed herself as “California’s Top Criminal & DUI Attorney,” but was disbarred early this year, ls trying to raise money over gofundme.com so she can take legal action against Motel 6 in Mission Valley and its parent company.
Prevost was staying there with her dog, Valkyrie, on April 28 of this year. She claims she left the dog in the room but came back to find her missing. She states that she searched for hours until Animal Control called to tell her the dog had been killed on Highway 5. She claims Motel 6 won’t show her security tapes and asserts the dog “opened the door and released herself,” according to Prevost’s gofundme.com statement. She says she has contacted an animal rights law firm in Los Angeles but needs funds for “filing fees, subpoena fees, discovery fights, depositions, court reporters and jury fees.”
According to State Bar of California records, Prevost (pronounced PRAY-vo) had been placed on two years of probation in 2015 over ethical violations, and three years probation in 2017 for misconduct. In the disbarment matter, she was charged with six ethical violations and failed to appear at trial.
When I called Motel 6 I was told, “We are not talking about that, not giving out any information, sorry” and the clerk hung up.
