I am going through a bitter divorce, the judge gave my wife full control over all finances and the income generating company I owned and operated for 30 years. I was locked out of all my accounts and awarded minimal spousal support (the company generates very good revenue). My first attorney billed me upwards of 75k then withdrew because he wasn't getting anywhere with the case (I paid him so it wasn't for failure to pay) however, I have now retained a new attorney and am broke unless he gets me my company back or he fights for his fees from the other side. He says he will not proceed (he hasn't done anything of substance yet) unless I pay him another retainer. Am I screwed? Do I hire a pro bono attorney? are there legal loans I can get?
