I have paid an attorney a retainer to represent me in a divorce action. Subsequent to my paying his retainer my attorney called me to say that he was approached by my husband’s brother to represent him in a divorce action against his current wife. My husband and I have few assets; my brother-in-law
has a seven figure home, an airplane and he is the CEO of 3-4 companies.
