It's not uncommon for attorneys to conduct settlement conferences without the client present. They could include the client if there is still contention about certain facts or testimony. But by the time a settlement conference rolls around, it's largely a discussion of medical findings...View More
All of those points are suspicious for potential lawyer misconduct. While there are portions of settlement conferences where a client may not attend, a case cannot be settled without a client's express consent. The client should be provided with a written breakdown showing the settlement...View More

from paternal cousin who is going thru an alleged agreed mediated divorce with my maternal second cousin [aka “daughter”] - anything you can do about his narcissistic behavior besides ignore it? Yep. Wrap your head around that one. Lol
you would want to consult an Oklahoma attorney, but my read would be 1) this is one divorcing person with another--let their attorneys handle it; if they have decided not to use attorneys, be aware that the person texted is getting free information, ammunition possibly. Why stop the flow. (In...View More

I sustained a serious injury as a result of a rhinoplasty revision (same doctor who did the rhino one year prior). The reconstructive surgeon indicated my nose "had a heart attack", no more blood flow to my nose, and my nostrils were reduced to 1/3 the original size (which was a normal... View More
An Oklahoma attorney could answer best, but your post remains open for four weeks. And by Oklahoma attorney, it would very specifically be your attorney.

Was misdiagnosed was told at birth that my diagnose was muscular dystrophy and found out that the doctor misdiagnosed me found out at the age of 31 and my correct diagnose was cerebral palsy "spastic diplegic"
This is something on which an Oklahoma attorney should advise, as med mal statutes of limitations and their conditions are governed by state law. But your post remains open for three weeks. As a general premise in some jurisdictions, the statute of limitations could be suspended and the clock might...View More

CT scan revealed that 1 screw was accidentally placed in the middle of the transverse foramen of C1 vertebrae causing pinching and possibly more to the verterbral artery. The surgeon seems reluctant to do anything about it, which is unsettling.

Doctor make a reference on his report that he should not have known as I didn't tell him my legal situation - the only one that could was the... View More
