    Mark’s Answer

    Assuming your attorney gets paid when the case is settled, and not before, and they do this for a living, seems hard to believe they would be purposely stalling. Most lawyers want to get paid as much as possible and as soon as possible, just like you. Maybe the reasons are entirely legitimate. Why don't you make an appointment and sit down with them and go over everything to your satisfaction?

    Mark’s Answer

    Unless your policy states there is a specific time in which you will receive payment and they violate that provision, I doubt that is a case. You can file a complaint with the Ohio Department of Insurance.
