Q: An attorney working my case was placed on temporary disability. Then reinstated, then permanent disability. 7 years
Have passed, I was in contact with her and she always told me we would finish everything to wait and that court was postponed or rescheduled. I paid in full for my gross misdemeanor criminal case and completed the community service program that allowed it to be off my record. The agreement was she would handle my lawsuit for a percentage of the settlement or damages paid as part of our contract. Due to mental health she was suspended and she lost the abilty to represent clients several times. She was placed on permanent disability in 2013. I was never informed and waited and attempted contact. I was also never told by her or anyone that there was a limited time to file a lawsuit. I appreciate your time and advice.
