My brother and I were exposed to dangerous chemicals on a Federal Superfund site, I nearly died, my brother died. What can I do?

Asked almost 2 years ago - Chino Hills, CA

An PI Attorney by the name Jeanne herd about my problem and asked if they could represent me, her boss Herb had a conflict of interest and arranged for Jeanne to quit her job, drop my PI case by arranging a good job for her husband Mark that was unemployed. Lucy, the WC attorney that was her associate quit her job and received a job from my employer to represent them, and worked against my WC case allowing Earnest, a Doctor with a congressional metal of honor state that my problem was Lactose deficiency. My Union allowed this to happen after they received Federal funds to provide more work to ARCA contractors. I was retaliated yearly by unemployment since I will not drop my WC lawsuit. I want my life back, my brother and I were a team and now financially ruined so Herb could be a hero.

    Answered . I'm sorry to hear about your brother. Find a lawyer with a low contingency fee, so you are left with the lion's share of the settlement, not your lawyer.
