    Mr. Palumbo is a very honest man. You have to appreciate that, too. Not every attorney will tell you what he did. However, to temper that a bit, I think you should try several other attorneys before concluding that your case is bad. The LAST thing you want to do is to handle this without an attorney. Lawyers do drop clients for a variety of reasons (though Mr. Palumbo's is VERY common). For example, lawyers drop clients because of client-staff conflicts.
