I have a problem with an unethical attorney. See I have an eviction case against me. At the magistrate the landlord (an employee of the corp not an officer) filed the landlord-tentant complaint. He filed no authorization into the court. he didn't show up for the case but their attorney did (he happens to be an officer of that corp). still no authorization was entered. I lost the case and appealed and this time he entered appearance and filed the complaint. i filed an answer and 2 counter-suits (wrongful eviction and defamation) I plan on withdrawaling them and filing a wrongful use of civil proceedings against them. The employee that filed the complain committed perjury and i can offer proof he knew and had reason to know he was making a false statement when he verified under penalty the statement on the complaint. anyway I just found out the law firm that is representing them in the counter-claims is a firm that this attorney used to work at (He has friends there).
i think as an officer he was the one that authorized them to represent them but i feel he is the only officer of the corp that knows they are being sued. My question is can any officer just give authorization to an attorney or do multiple officers have to vote on it first? Is there anything I can do to get an attorney representing them that has legal representation of them?

You raise some valid points. Contact your local bar regulatory association or commission and register a complaint. You will get a response. Good Luck!
