Q: Can I be sued for not paying an attorney who did a very poor quality job on my case?
A: Yes. It may be malpractice or it may breach of contract.
Please take note, there are strict time deadlines where you must file your lawsuit in Court or take other action or you will be forevermore barred from compensation. I have not advised you as to the date within which you must file a lawsuit or take other action. Please also note that even if we discuss your case further, I will not be your attorney until we both sign a fee agreement.
