I suffered an accident almost 2 yrs ago. After inquiring for 9 months regarding the status of my case and my attorney not being responsive,I showed up at her office and demanded a copy of my file, When she gave me a copy of it I saw a copy of a check from the insurance company for "med pay." When I questioned her abut it, she told me she deposited it in her trust account. She said according to our retainer agreement she had authority to sign my name on it. She then sent me a letter dropping my case. I called the insurance company and settled the case myself but the check is payable to me and the lawyer. I called her to sign and she wants to charge me attorney fees. Is she entitled to charge attorneys fees after she dropped my case? even if it was me that settled the case?
