The only work the lawyer did was a three hour discussion

The only work the lawyer did was a three hour discussion with a 20 year old woman who was afraid because she had damaged and abandonded her boyfriend's car in a no-damage rear-ender. He also did some amount of investigative work to determine that no charges were filed against her or her boyfriend.No papers were presented or signed, and no written report received except a letter stating that she is not allowed a refund because it was a Criminal Case.Is this normal policy?Will the Florida Bar assist in getting a refund?

I am involved in a workers' compensation case. I was

I am involved in a workers' compensation case. I was initially denied benefits because the Qualified Medical Examiner (QME) lied in his reports and made statements about my medical history that is not true. For example. The QME in question said in his report that I had chlamydia when I was seven years old, when in fact my medical records say I had allergic rhinitis. Anyway, that is just one example of the lies this doctor made. He made false statements in regards ***** ***** work related injuries to deny me workers' comp benefits. In November 2015, this doctor was deposed by the defense and lied during the deposition (he deliberately lied to deny me benefits). Since then, he hired an attorney regarding his perjury. A second deposition is pending. The defense knows this and offered to settle and asked me to give them figure to settle all claims. One of the claims I filed a writ of review (Court of appeals first appellate California). I have the proof that this doctor lied during a deposition. The defense attorney for workers comp said perjury is a civil offense and the doctor can be sued in civil court. I was surprised the defense agreed to but in the language that if I settle, I will maintain my rights to take legal action against this doctor. Prior to the deposition, the workers' comp insurance company was standing with the doctors report, knowing he lied. Now, they are asking me for a figure to settleJA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: californiaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: what do you mean?JA: What confuses you?Customer: I filed a complaint with the workers' compensation appeals board, but they said this doctor is credible. I been trying to inform the court this doctor lied but they would not believe me. But now, with the deposition, things has changed and the defense wants to settle. Other than filing a writ of review and informing WCAB medical unit, nothing else has been filed.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Can this doctor be sued in California civil court? The defense counsel said I could because it's a civil matter and workers' comp has nothing to do with it. Or is workers' comp trying to minimize their liability? I was also injured during this QME exam, but learned since his exam is a med-legal exam, nothing can be done. The exam was in December, 2013.

My lawsuit is against the trustees of my family trust and

My lawsuit is against the trustees of my family trust and unfortunately my own mother is one of the trustees. She is not in favor of what the others are doing at all and quite frankly is scared of the other trustees. They have been pulling some pretty egregious stunts lately and that includes making a deal with my own attorney to drop out of the case. So I just went to the first status conference today and showed the judge my evidence and he had no problem giving me another two months for a continuance but here's my problem... Some of the best evidence I've collected over the past year is from my mother, I have a dozen or so emails that could make this case alone and over the last few months months I've sent some pretty mean emails to my mother to try to get her to stand up for us against these guys, but today that backfired. The defense asked for a restraining order to prevent me from talking about this case with my mother. They didn't ask to have me stop talking about her, they just wanted me to stop talking about this case. Now I admit that my "rude" emails were about this case but that seems rediculous. If anything, they could have just asked me to be nice. But anyway, the judge saw a few of the emails and asked me about them and I agreed to stop. After the conference, the other attorney sent me a copy of what had been signed and it prohibits me from talking to her about anything that has to do with this case, and not only me but my wife to (she is also named on the petition). The judge hasn't seen the evidence I've collected yet but there is no question that the defense just wanted to prevent me from gathering any more. What can I do?
