Firm did not file a motion or follow up on the proceedings of my case when one attorney resigned and another took over. I have had 3 attorneys in three years in the same firm and no action. I have paid over $10,000 for this divorce and we are almost at square one. Now they want more money to continue and they offer no promises except to keep asking for more $ to look over the case. This has been 3 years since papers were filed and I am paying $1000 per month for three kids ages 19, 17 and 10 in child support.
You may contact the Florida Bar and get a free pamphlet explaining your rights and the procedure for filing a Bar Complaint against an attorney. Depending upon the particulars, you may also have a case for legal malpractice. There are attorneys who work in that area and you may wish to consult with one.
