Re: Can't get money back from attorney

You can file a motion to compel. It will probably take awhile to get a hearing date.

A motion will start the clock ticking. If your motion annoys your lawyer; he may wait the 6mths it takes to get to the hearing date and then pay you the day before the hearing.

If your attorney believes he is owed some of those funds; you need to resolve those issues. Otherwise when it gets to court; the attorney can/will ask for the money that he is owed PLUS his legal costs in this new action. He will protray you as being unreasonable.

Judges tend to favor their officiers of the court.

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle. --Plato
