    From the context of the question I will assume you successfully completed an IPN contract during the relevant period. If so, the inherent difficulty with the question is this: IPN involvement is strictly confidential and is not required to be disclosed to any one for any reason. That said, the Nurse Practice Act requires you to truthfully and honestly answer all questions regarding employment applications, credentialing, etc. Therefore, you are faced with the dilemma of disclosing the...

    Yes, attorneys do take business and contractual disputes on contingent fee. Often the attorney fee is 40% of the net recovery. The client is always responsible for payment of all litigation costs as they incur; however, the professional fee may be contingent on the recovery. Many attorneys offer free consultations to review your case and discuss fee arrangements.

Most personal injury attorneys offer a free consultation service and will be able to offer you a more definite answer.

Hiring an attorney will not really help much.

    Under Florida ethical considerations your attorney is not allowed to put his/her financial interests ahead of your interests. On the other hand, the attorney is not required to work for free. If the attorney feels he/she is not being compensated, they can file a motion to withdrawal. Short of this, the attorney cannot prejudice your case because he/she is not being paid. This is not a clear cut case and truly depends on the facts. My advice is to either work it out with your attorney ASAP...
