My question involves malpractice by a lawyer in the state of: California
I was raped by a los angeles county official, and I reported it to the police in my town which is not in los angeles county. The police investigated it and even though there was alot of evidence the police dropped the case and did not press charges. I contacted a lawyer who said he would take my case. They filed the claim for damages and it was denied 5 months ago. They keep telling me that they are going to file the lawsuit soon. But I know my statute of limitations is running out and I feel like my lawyer is just holding me off until it runs out and then I can't do anything. Can a lawyer do that?
