Please help- I was arrested about a 1.5 years ago for DUI (I did not blow or give a blood sample). I had another person's prescription for pain pills and was charged with a felony. I hired a lawyer and paid him $2500 to represent me.I went to court three times for the felony and he never showed up. Eventually the charges were dropped due to the evidence (the pills) being "lost" and the cop not showing up. Now I must go to court this Monday to face the DUI charge and my lawyers secretary informed me that my lawyer had more important cases to work on and will not be coming. What was the money spent on and can I sue to get it back? It seems as he, the lawyer, robbed me. Now I must find a new lawyer who is not familiar with the case. Is there any recourse I can take?
