A: I’m very sorry to hear that this is the position you are in; especially considering the incredible impact that a divorce has on the outcome of the next phase of your life.

As for your question, I would have to know much more about the “behind-the-scenes” administrative side of the attorney’s professional liability coverage and the pertinent Firm’s compliance and relationship with the attorney. I’m sure that this circumstance is very frustrating and suggest that you seek a consultation with a qualified attorney experienced in professional liability to further assess your circumstances.

I sincerely wish you only the best and hope you find resolution.
