There isn't enough information in your post to properly answer your question. What were the circumstances in which the lawyer took your money? What is it that you want to change your mind about? If you signed a contract with the lawyer and it involved the payment of money, whether by a direct payment or through a trust account, then you likely can't revoke the contract simply because you regret it. It also depends whether the agreement allowed for refunds. Unfortunately, we need more information.

This is not to be considered legal advice nor does an attorney-client relationship exist.

For legal advice relating to your specific situation, I strongly urge you to consult with an attorney in your area. NO COMMUNICATIONS WITH ME ARE TO BE CONSTRUED AS ARISING FROM AN ATTORNEY-CLIENT RELATIONSHIP AND NO ATTORNEY-CLIENT RELATIONSHIP WILL BE ESTABLISHED WITH ME UNLESS I HAVE EXPRESSLY AGREED TO UNDERTAKE YOUR REPRESENTATION, WHICH INCLUDES THE EXECUTION OF A WRITTEN AGREEMENT OF RETAINER.


More facts are needed to give you a good answer, but if you feel that the attorney has done something unethical, you should contact the state bar association and file a complaint.
