Q: Had accident in Tx 08/19. Live in NM hired lawyer in NM it’s been over a year now attorney said I don’t practice in Tx.

NM Attorney said take final offer or find TX attorney cause he’s not licensed in TX. Just found this out after one 1/2 year of waiting for a result. No communication from the attorney. I have done all work on providing him with medical documentation. He’s done nothing. No communication and no help in fighting for what we deserve.

A: A Texas attorney/New Mexico attorney could advise best here, but your post remains open for two weeks. Regardless of whatever it was that caused the lapse in communication here, you should move without further delay to sort this out. Is your attorney under the impression you moved on and retained a Texas attorney after they presented you with the offer? Are they under the impression they are still on the case? A starting point would be to contact your attorney and ask them where the matter stands, and what your options are. Good luck
