It sounds like for some reason, perhaps something said at one of the other depositions (perhaps even the floor mopping person), this attorney no longer thinks you have a strong case and wants to unload you as a client. Perhaps you would indeed be better off with a different attorney. You need to be with an attorney who believes in your case. There is no shortage of personal injury lawyers in California. My advice to you would be to make some appointments for free consulations. Explain to the lawyers that you meet with that you and your existing lawyer are both looking to part ways. Get the exiting lawyer to write something saying he will not put a lien on your settlement/judgment (except maybe for costs he has already advanced). This will help you find new representation.
You know as well as I do that no attorney wants to get involved with a) a difficult case b) a difficult case someone else has all ready been involved with and this has gone on for 2 1/2 years. If he did not want the case then he had every chance not to take it. That is your answer to the fact that the housekeeper purjored himself under oath?
