My question involves malpractice by a lawyer in the state of: Alabama
I received a letter in the mail today from the attorney who is representing me in an auto accident case and the attorney stated he would be putting the paperwork in to withdraw as my attorney. He suggested I find another attorney and put paperwork in with the court for a substitution, he said it would be easier for him this way. The only problem is the statute of limitations runs out on my case runs out this Friday. What happens if I cannot find another attorney to substitute and the attorney that is representing me now fails to file my case with the courts before the statue of limitations runs out? Thanks.
