My question is about my lawyer being legally allowed to drop me, 2 years into case.
My first visit with my lawyer, he explained what he does, will do and how many years in practice. He made it a point to say that if we dont like their settlement offer, that he is willing to goto bat for me. So I agreed to give him the case.
Now, after about 2 years, he tells me there is an settle offer hearing in 2 weeks and he thinks, we should settle for a certain price. I feel it is way to low and when I expressed this to my lawyer, he said that he knows what is best and if I cant agree to his settlement amount, then I should consider finding a new lawyer!
I could not believe my ears...I'm not asking for a crazy number, I did a verdict search for cases similar to mine and the amount I'm asking is lower, so there should be no issue.
Please tell me if my lawyer can drop me for this and if there are any disciplinary measures or sanctions.
Thanks so much for your time,
