Basic question - have you hired another attorney and/or demanded your papers back in writing? Has the attorney notified you that he's put a lien on the file? I'm not up on the Model Rules of Professional Conduct in PA, but I think as long as you demand the return of your file, he has to return it. Some other AVVO attorneys licensed in PA should be able to assist in the analysis.
The foregoing is not legal advice nor is it in any manner whatsoever meant to create or impute an attorney/client relationship.
How would you participate in a lawsuit in PA if you have been deported?
