Ronald J. Eisenberg's answer Bad idea on many grounds. First, I doubt the match would be commissioned through the state. Second, you would incur liability risks. Third, it might be unlawful under your city's laws. Fourth, it might violate your HOA declaration or rules and regulations, if applicable.
Ronald J. Eisenberg's answer A hotel may not discriminate against you on account of race, religion, national origin, etc., but may discriminate against you on account of merely not liking you or mistakenly believing you are selling drugs.
You are certainly allowed to retain new counsel, but the judge is not required to put the case on hold to allow time for you to retain new counsel. Most will give a reasonable time period, however. Your prior counsel should have filed a motion to withdraw and a notice of hearing, thereby giving you some time to get new counsel.
Lydia Seifner's answer Lawyers are not supposed to charge for fixing their mistakes. You may want to consult to someone who handles malpractice cases, instead of those who handle family law. But, first talk to your attorney and see if she will negotiate on the bill.
Terrence H Thorgaard's answer It appears that you were informed that he had disclosed the information. Normally, discovery responses are signed by the party (you), as well as the party's attorney. Were you not asked to sign the discovery responses?
Andrew Hahn's answer This is certainly a difficult situation, but any attorney would need to read the pleadings before being able to give an answer about the merits of this case. It sounds like there may be something worth looking into deeper, but you need to speak with a legal malpractice attorney in person.
