hi i hope you know my story by now. if not please let me know i will type it again for you.
i contacted a lawyer today on recommendation of my boss. i left a message for him in the morning.after about an hour i received a call from another person who said that the layer i am looking for is on vacation in italy and that he has asked him to take care of me . he said he is also a lawyer who works from the same office.
i met him at 1:00pm and explained all the story, he was very confident that he will get me the dismissal on my case from the court
he also asked me to keep my cell phone on. and that he will call me if i need to appear in court. he said i don't need to be present on the court day & that he will handle everything all by himself.
i paid him his fee and said thanks and came home relieved.
but suddenly i realized that he didn't ask me to sign any thing . we didn't sign any contract. i thought of calling him but on his card he has only office phone no.
i know i should have thought about it earlier but i was so disturbed that it didnt strike me there.
please advise me is it all normal.
can he represent me without i signing a contract with him?
will it be ok if i don't appear in court as per his advise?
