Resolved Question:

My divorce attorney just collected a judgment against my ex-husband on a refinance. I ask him to send me part of the proceeds but his exact words were "if you want any of the proceeds, you''ll have to sign a contract first." It''s not as if I am not paying him because he has received over $100,000 in the last 6 months. Does he have a legal right to hold my money in trust and not pay me when I request payment?

Probably not. You need to contact the Washington State Bar and discuss exactly what the attorney said to you and the details of your retainer agreement / existing services contract and have them contact him to help you get the funds released.
