    Was your case dismissed or not? Is it still pending?

    If you wish, you can retain a new lawyer then try to recover your payment from the lawyer you no longer find satisfactory.

    I don't know what is the status of the case because he never return my call or replied my email. However I don't think he working on the case at all, because i call the company to check to see if he submit any paper work and they said NO. This is almost 6 months now.

    Thanks for your help
