an attorney has sued an auto repair shop on behalf of my company and won without my knowledge and without a retainer ? I discovered it 2 years later
I can think of several things you might do legally, practically and with the state bar but without specifics and details, it would be nothing more than speculation. You should consult an attorney in a private consultation where all of these details and specifics can be disclosed and options discussed.
I guess I would start with the meaning of "my company." If you own it, in corporate or LL form, any check the lawyer got for recovery, to be cashed or deposited, would require a forgery. The early comment "Context, Details.?" is most apt. You didn't bury the lead. You just didn't write the rest of the story.
