My attorney's actions are questionable. I don't trust him at all. He does not communicate with me in a trustworthy manner. He will not give me specific details about the case. He has not been forthcoming about a court date(s). It seems like he has a hidden agenda. I have not addressed my concerns with the attorney. I am in fear of retaliation. The statute of limitations has passed and I don't want to jeopardize my chances of having my case heard. I believe that my attorney is going to misappropriate my funds.
I'm very sorry to hear about your situation.
Your attorney owes you a strict duty to account for your money in his/her trust account. Ask for this in writing - you have no need to fear retaliation. If your attorney is still not forthcoming, then the state bar has a well-staffed department of folks willing to talk to you about your problems with your lawyer. I'm pasting a link to them below.
If nothing comes of this, it may be time to file a bar complaint.
No attorney-client relationship or privilege is formed by this communication. This answer is to be considered as a general discussion of legal principals and is NOT LEGAL ADVICE. If the asker seeks specific legal advice, he should retain an attorney, who will naturally take the time to consider all aspects of the case and perform any necessary legal research.
If your first line is your question, ask the trustee(s) for an accounting of the trust. Put your request in writing.
As to your attorney, when you lose confidence in a lawyer, get another one.
