    Andrew’s Answer

    The two questions I suggest you ask your attorney are (1) has he done an asset check and (2) is he absolutely positive the insurance company is being honest about there only being 100,000 in insurance. If you believe he has checked these issues out carefully, then you will want to take his advice. On the other hand, if you decide has has not and is just taking the easy way out, you may want to interview other lawyers.
