I consulted an attorney firm to review my case for wrongful termination, retaliation, etc.. during in person meeting attorney requested copies of some important documents I have (timeline that clearly explains case, proofs for case, recommendations, claim filed at company about not equal opportunity employment etc..) After wasting months on this process that was a waste of time and money, a month of wait to get feedback, and attorney not responding to my calls, nor giving me the follow up attorney promised during in person consultation (not free and very expensive for what she did). Attorney called me recently and told me that they were not going to take my case which did not make any sense considering that attorney who reviewed my case told me that employment cases were not her expertise!In summary, this lawyer did not want to represent me. Can this lawyer keep copies she made of my confidential files during consultation? Since this lawyer is not longer working with me she should not have the right to keep my confidential documents for my case. I'm going to find another lawyer. I found this online which is one of the main reasons why an attorney should not keep copies of documents. "An attorney may be required to provide the client with a copy of his/her file in order to avoid damaging the client's legal position in the underlying matter for which the attorney was retained."
