I hired an attorney to represent me in a family law matter. After attempting mediation as required by the court, we were able to reach an agreement. Per the agreement reached, my attorney was to draft the final order for entry by the court. After more than seven months and several lies about why the order had been drafted, I was forced to fire this attorney.
I hired a new attorney to draft the order and have it entered by the court only to find out that the case had been removed from the courts calender three months prior and dismissed because a judgement was never entered. Its seem as if my EX had outstanding legal fees with her attorney so the two attorneys involved in the case delayed entry of a judgment until the fees were paid. My legal fees were paid in full. Can these two attorneys get away with this? Should my attorney have allowed this?
