criminal investigation and although nothing has come of the case, I paid the attorney to keep in touch with the authorities and at least reply when I had a concern about possible exposure and other issues. I get no replies to my questions, no answers to emails, and pretty much feel abandoned. There must be some recourse I have other than standard contractual here? Absolute breach of fiduciary duty to me, at least, and I want to just cancel, but of course if I do that I am sure he will say "oh that's fine just you have used up your entire retainer, and in fact you actually still owe me". I have hired my share of attorneys so I am looking here for some better advice, and then a replacement. The investigation is still ongoing technically so I wanted to keep counsel as a matter of record.
