Customer Question

A law firm takes a lawsuit against a doctor. They hold the case for almost 2 years and then inform their client that they do not think there is a case. The case was never presented to the board for review. Is this a normal course of action? The statute of limitations is 2 years

Dear yarg608

You have the right to request your file from the law firm. Once you receive your file go through it, and see what exactly they did during the past two years. If you believe that nothing was done, meaning no investigation, exchange of documented information or requests have been completed. Take your file to another lawyer for legal advice. There are also many legal firms or Legal research companies that specialize in reviewing files for accuracy by lawyers. If you feel that you have not been legally represented according to the code of ethics sworn in by lawyers, you have many options to proceed in.

If you need more assistance in this matter we will be happy to assist you.

Regards,
Moe
