I lawyer handled a criminal case 2-4 years ago, and I am

Hi,My name is***** lawyer handled a criminal case for me 2-4 years ago, and I am still on probation. He has been paid a great deal in full, but does not seem invested in representing me to adjust my sentence now. Requesting and helping me reduce my sentence was what he stated he would do, at this point in time. Again, he seems not to be interested in doing this. I requested a copy of our contract, which he says he cannot provide. I have a copy of the payments he received from me, which again were very substantial ($50,000), though he said he "may not have a contract for me." What can I do to ensure I get the representation I paid for, or if not, see my money refunded?Thank you,Nick

We live in Colorado. My 92 year old mother has dementia. We

We live in Colorado. My 92 year old mother has dementia. We have tried to keep her out of a nursing home but that is becoming very difficult. She has very little money. But she has properties still in her name worth about $700,000. We assume that it is too late to have them transferred to us and that the state will take them if she has to go into a nursing home. Is that correct?Also, if she gifts them to us, would estate or gift tax be prohibitive?Any suggestions or are we pretty much screwed?
