You should request a face-to-face meeting with the lawyer that handled the case. If you can’t resolve the issue that way, you could consult with a legal malpractice attorney in your area to see if you have a case.

This looks like an awful situation. If I were you, I would ask for copies of all court orders concerning your case and then for a written explanation or a meeting with the responsible lawyer to learn exactly why the case was dismissed.

Our firm does and if you feel you need our help after learning more, feel free to contact me. Bruce Pfaff, Chicago,
