It seems my lawyer hasn't done his job to the fullest. He extended my case up to the point that he couldn't handle it so he had to drop it. With lots of tricks he wants to pass the case to another lawyer. I finally could find two lawyers to review my case. However he extending my accident case, harmed my case, and of course stressed me and affected my life. Is there any way that I can get his job checked by special lawyers/or state bar lawyer?
After all these time in the world that he had in this world he did not give the required attention and thanks to him my case is not strong anymore. Other lawyer hesitate to accept my case. I want to know if there is any way that I can check up what he has done or what he has done was a right thing to do or not?
Be mindful of the statute of limitations, and certainly get a new lawyer to investigate and evaluate.
You can certainly talk to the State Bar yourself and make sure you contact and obtain new counsel pronto!!
In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but insted need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice. If you want to be completely sure of your rights, you must sit down with an experienced criminal defense attorney to be fully aware of your rights.
At this point, you have no damages that were caused by your original lawyer. If your new lawyer thinks the ultimate recovery would have been higher if the first lawyer had been more diligent, you should ask the new lawyer what you should do next. Good luck.
