I hired an attorney for my car accident. He said I had to wait for the insurance company to accept liability before it got my vehicle out of impound. Two days went by and nothing happened. So I got pissed and changed attorneys. Turns out my first attorney did nothing wrong and I was just impatient. When I notified my first attorney that I had a new attorney, my first attorney told me per our retainer he had a lien on my claim for the time his office spent on my case and I owed him $500 when cases settles. How can he try to enforce that lien? Will my new attorney give it to him directly if he shows him the lien or does my old attorney have to sue me to get it? Is he really going to sue me over $500. Is that even worth his time?
