OK this is a difficult question. A case against the federal

OK this is a difficult question. A case against the federal government because of a car accident that was clearly their drivers fault. Lawyer handing the case fails to get documents back according to the Military JAG deadline. Lawyer has admitted his error in writing and knows he is open to being sued. However we have tried four attorneys now and they have declined to take the case for one of the following reasons.1) They don't want to take ON THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT2) They don't want to pick up a case that has a previous attorney involved3) They don't want to sue a fellow attorney.We need an attorney. Where can we get one who doesn't have a problem with 1, 2 or 3.

In 1993 I was employed by the Air Force Reserve as an Air

In 1993 I was employed by the Air Force Reserve as an Air Reserve Tech.. Working in the sheet metal shop. I had my hands crushed and for 18 monthe I was off work. After going through ten more operations and many hours of theraphy I returned to work. Just to find that my commander had hired someone in my slot. So he new he broke the law since I came back that he sent my medical records to Warner Ribbins to have two Dr.'s go over them and disaqualify me from world wide duty. Which meant I would loose my job. Which I did. But when they took me to personnel the ladt up there saved me and called federal workers comp. And that is where I am today. Now this took place in 1993, and it is now 2016 still on workers comp. from my old unit. how is this going to play out??? sorry for the misspelled words.JA: Are you overseas or stateside?Customer: I am retired here in OhioJA: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?Customer: I have tried to find anyone around here to talk too and everyone says I need someone who knows military and civil service law together. I forgot to tell you that this summer that someone in my old unit was going throught my old commanders desk and they had found a letter that he never forwarded on to me from Washington DC. fully disabling me. I left in Aug. of 95 and the letter is Oct. of 95. So what is workers comp. going to say about that?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Just that I have put in a claim in for my hands and have been denied.
