You need to ask your primary attorney that question. He/she should have all the relevant information to answer that question. It's difficult to even guess at an answer based on what you have provided.

You could sue them but it would cost you a lot of money and you might not win. So if you have a lot of money and want to make a point then you could probably find a lawyer who would charge you a $10,000 retainer and be willing to sue... but I don't think there are very many lawyers that would....

Your lawyer might have a claim to some of the fees. It's really hard to fully understand the situation with what you have said but there is a good chance he/she has earned some percentage of the 33 and possibly the whole amount. Sometimes it's the other side that slows things up.

My soon to be ex left me with the house in California. I cannot afford it and she won’t sell. Cannot afford to get atty involved as there is no gain. Should I just go through foreclosure?

Theodore Allan Greene
Theodore Allan Greene answered on Oct 19, 2020

You should not allow it to go into foreclosure if you can. Of all your options foreclosure does the worst to your credit record. I have helped 100's of people do a short sale in similar situations. You can call me to discuss at 916.442.6400.

Q: Can a person be convicted of mayhem if they threw a flashlight at someone and it made a 1/4 inch split on their ear
Theodore Allan Greene
Theodore Allan Greene answered on Oct 7, 2020

It depends on all the facts. A prosecutor would have to prove a lot of elements to get a conviction and we can't guess at what some of those facts might be... or whether they can be proven beyond a reasonable doubt which is the standard in criminal cases.

You should talk to an attorney. Did you have any cameras going like Ring? Did anyone witness the whole event? Did you get the name of the driver? Sounds like a hard case but you should sit down with a personal injury attorney to explore your options.
