S/he signed off on the order and it was entered before I could even see it and s/he allowed a lot in the order as a result that is potentially damaging to me. Initially, s/he said s/he would have the order amended, but now s/he says s/he doesn't believe the differences are that substantial and has expressed an intent to withdraw from my case. What can I do?
Terminate your legal counsel and substitute new counsel quickly and request they file a Motion for New Trial and/or a Motion to Modify, Correct or Reform Judgment, pointing out in motion verified the particulars of the discrepancies in the order signed by the Court. Time is of the essence. A party has 30 days from date judgment signed to get any post-judgment motions timely filed. Good luck.
