Family law case. Court issued sanction of $20k against Respondent husband (who pretends to have no money) but in fact, he somehow has hundreds of thousands to pay his attorney. Is it possible to force the attorney to purge his trust account of the money paid by his client? after all, it is a bank account...
You can levy the attorney for monies the attorney is holding for the client. To the extent work has been done but not yet paid for, the attorney will have a lien or claim to some or all of the money held. It's worth a try.
If you find this answer helpful, please say so. This is a general response to a general question posted openly on-line. Answering this question does not create an attorney-client relationship or any obligation on the part of the attorney to take any action or respond further. There are often deadlines, time limits and procedures which must be followed to enforce legal rights or handle a case. The failure to take appropriate action as provided by law may lead to the loss of rights. If you would like to hire Mr. Bradley you will need to arrange a consultation and enter into a written fee agreement with him.
