Sorry if the Question title made no sense ; I will try to elaborate. I was "t boned" by a negligent "driver" who failed to stop at an intersection as I went through it. I got the first attorney I spoke with thinking they are all the same and this is an obvious slam dunk case with no defense for the other party or dispute of guilt. This guy has done nothing on the case for 2 years. After I harassed him He finally sent a demand letter and he accepted the first lowball ($2,000- my car was totaled and I was injured and have been out of work since) offer from Mercury without my authorization. He also cashed the check. I have signed nothing... cont. belowHe should be removed for cause but I'm worried he will claim he spent all this time which he has not and then try to put a lien on whatever I get. (he can and presumably will make up bogus hours spent.I say this because he and his paralegal have been repeatedly caught lying to me and the doctors I treated with. Apparently they know and take advantage of the fact that they really have no oversight, so like common thugs devoid of a moral compass, do whatever they want and then laugh at you like " what are you gonna do about it" when confronted,which has actually literally happened in this case) To mitigate his ability to lie I want to lock down a figure on paper now before trying to fire him. Pity I have to come up with such a strategy. :(
