Hi, here were no children involved, I was seeking assistance, but a limited divorce. I had asked the attorney to settle with the opposing counsel on the folowing:
1) the defendant (my husband) pay part of my attorney fees
2) forgo my petition
3) my for the law suits that were pending against us since the defendant had left an abandon car on our driveway causing the causing county to sue us.
4) Pay for the suit issued by our home association due to nonpayment (the defendant inform the association that he was going to pay but didn't)
Again the opposing counsel was consistenly protecting her client from all the charges my attorney was causing. I even asked my attorney to be mindful of my budget, yet he never did so upon my request. I pleaded with his office several times that I did not want to have a bill that I couold not pay. I had threaten that I would call the opposing wcounsel after his office continued to harrasse me about giving him money towards my balance three days prior to going to court. When I had given his firm money prior to going to coourt, the money that was given was not deducted from the balance.
What about the attorney's statement that my complete bill after the trial should be no more than $5000.00 after the deductions. Yet he is making me pay $15245.00 before crediting me the $4000.00 he stated he would deduct from the balance.
