Hello, thank you for the question.
What kind of case is it? Did you retain the lawyer? If so, did you sign a retainer agreement?
Don't use any details that can identify you or the lawyer, please.
Good question, but one that I don't think I can answer well for you. I'm going to opt out as your expert, and I'm sure that another will pick it up. Please be patient.
I am sorry to hear this.
Can you explain why the damages ended up being significantly less and why the first lawyer caused this to be the case?
But how is this lower amount the fault of the first lawyer? I am trying to figure out how to assess damages.
