Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
This does not help there was no monies owed and the lawyer resigned himself from the case but did not provide a release of lien. I do not think he will give one if asked. Does he even have a legal right to any settlement monies if he quit the case? What court do I need to take him to to get the lien removed? Do I need to find a lawyer for the case if so what kind? Are there papers I can file on my own to start the ball rolling towards getting the lien removed?
I have already filed a complaint with the bar and they are still working on the response and have been for some time about 5 months now. There are many other facets to the wrong doing by the lawyer and that may be why the response is taking so long he has violated at least 5 different aspects of the code. Should I send a certified letter to the attorney asking for the release of the lien and also should I let them know of the filed complaint with the bar?
