After I had spent a large amount of money on legal fees, I rand out of money. I had to inform my financial situation to my attorney. My attorney filed a motion to withdraw from the case, which I held no objection to, but the Judge, after hearing both sides of the story from me and my attorney, deined the motion and ordered my attorney to defend me. The case was settled a day before trial date. Now, the attorney is sending me letters demanding payment and is threatening a lawsuit if payment isn't met, but since the Judge ordered him to defend me, I'm questioning weither or not his threats have any legal standing. Is it legal for him to demand payment from defending me on the Judge's order?
