Last summer i was in a auto accident. I sustained injuries due to the accident and now 9 months later still being treated. I was referred to Mr Cooper from a friend. As far as Mr Cooper he is A honorable man and in no way am i saying anything negative about him his honesty integrity or service to his clients. After months of being rep by Mr Coopers office i had not recieved lost wages from no fault. I would call the office to help me with this issue the assistant would tell me that they dont have anything to do with that part of compensation. They would listen on a 3 way call between me and my no fault provider. During 1 of the 3 way calls the assistant took it upon there selves to interject and state to my adjuster that they had been injuried and after a couple weeks of going thru the process needed to recover lost wages medical bills ect said they gave up on doing so and went back to work i guess suggesting that i do the same. I couldnt believe what i had heard. After maybe or month or two that passed after that incendent i called the office to see what was done about the lost wages and was again being talked down to by the assistant who thought because they were busy that my case didnt matter that much. She was being rude so we engaged in shouting match which then lead to being forwarded to Mr. Cooper. As i tried to explain my issue he shouted and protested the staff has done nothing wrong. I am not an idiot im sure Mr Cooper has a long history with his staff and would easily withdraw from any client who wouldnt cooperate with his staff which is why have nothing to say bad about Mr Cooper. I then sent a letter stating that i will no longer need his assistance on my case and would hire another lawyer. After looking online found another lawyer which sounded like a good choice but i was sadly mistaken. I should've have known as he started to slender Mr Cooper and his practice that he was no to be trusted. After 2 months the 2nd lawyer withdrew for according to him 10k or 20k is not worth his time. Now with a third lawyer on the case there was a lien set by Mr. Cooper. The 2nd lawyer told me that he had to pay Mr. Cooper for the work he had done and that he himself would not put a lien on the case. My question is if they were so busy that they couldnt find time to focus on my case that they would have the time to put a lien on my case? Is this fair and what else can i do about this
