How would I be able to fire a sociopath/liar/lawyer, after I naively signed?
May 20, 2014
I am harmed in so many ways, due to a surgeon & a medical device, both mentally (frontal lobe damage) and physically. First thing I did when I realized something was so Wrong, I called the only lawyer I knew, he did our estate planning, naively thinking he was someone I could trust. He than finds this Character obviously in the back of the courtroom & for a finders fee, they worked out a deal. The lawyer I realized AFTER I signed is a Criminal lawyer & the more he realized he had no clue, the more aggressive he became with me. He would scream at me on the phone machine, leave drunk calls after 10 pm.... He informed me in one week alone he spent 100 hours on my Case & that was is impossible. How could I afford to pay him an amount he Claimed & find a Legit Attorney.
It sure sounds like you ended up with a doozy of a lawyer. Firstly, no med mal or personal injury lawyer worth their salt will ever charge an hourly rate for their work. It's all done on a contingent basis, and they only get paid if they can secure a financial recovery for you. Secondly, it's unclear what you mean by "He then finds this Character obviously in the back of the courtroom & for a finders fee, they worked out a deal". Do you mean he referred the case to another? - didn't you have to sign a consent? Is the case in suit? There are so many questions raised by your post that you definitely should talk to a med mal attorney you trust. You're not stuck with this guy and can change attorney if you're unhappy with him.
