I can't find paid lawyer for claims mainly because there is not much value in claims.
While personal injury settlement was discussed a defense attorney misrepresented and in writing implied to make me believe that he and his insurance company will make reasonable separated offer or loss of consortium claim for separated spouse but after I settled my claim very next day they said oh there is no additional offer to settle loss of consortium claim.
One of the main reason why I did not hire another attorney because he implied that they will make a reasonable offer but now I realize it was his mind game and to stall so time to file motion for continuance will pass away while engaged in settlement negotiation.
Further he threatened my separated spouse.
We feel cheated and misrepresented. Since there is not much money involved I don't think any attorney might be interested so can a attorney gave me links to case law so I can find motions samples so I can learn how to write and which case laws to refer to.
You should start with the Bar Association and their grievance process. If your case has settled the time for motions passes after 10 days if I understand the question.

Go to local courthouse to see if you can find a case where such a motion was made and copy same.
If the loss of consortium claim was not included in the settlement and/or the spouse with the loss of consortium claim did not sign a release, the loss of consortium claim claim may still be viable. You may want to call the Bar Association and look into filing a grievance if the attorney misrepresented things to you.
