I received a letter from an Insurance company regarding a claim that was filed on my behalf by a former personal injury atty. I was discharged by the atty in the middle of "settlement negotiations." I provided my file to my new atty, who then filed a duplicate claim (based on the fact my 1st atty "did nothing on your (my) case.) My case was settled in July 2012 but, the letter from insurance co (received Nov 2012) raised questions (ie...why my 1st atty would file a claim w/the insurance co, fail to tell me about it, cont. to say they didn't know who the insurance co was, then, discharge me) so I requested my file. Filed complaint w/state bar & investigation is ongoing. 1st atty denies filing complaint, but, insurance co letter says otherwise. Need copy of actual claim ppwrk filed by atty.
