I was forced into a settlement by a lying attorney March

I was forced into a...

I was forced into a settlement by a lying attorney March 2016. Married 33yrs 6 adult children now. Husband hid money. I was abused and had a severe case of PTSD. I was told husband retiring and couldn't get spousal support. He left me little money. Attorneys have taken much of it. Husband will not give me all that was awarded items. Also he clearly lied about money since he has bought a place in Lake Tahoe, and next week moving to a home in Pebble Beach. Much to say, can someone please help me?
JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: WA state, Clark County. I've been told by large Oregon firms that Clark county is very corrupt, attorneys and lawyers club etc. Husband knew many.
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: Yes a CR2A was done, which I wasn't even told was one, only a settlement. I was very ill with PTSD while in court with settlement, didn't hear all that was said till I hear the DVD. The judge didn't like me and would repeat prior to settlement YOU'VE HAD 5 ATTORNEYS. Husband at one point held back the court ordered monthly money so I could not get an attorney during a critical point. My story is shocking, I've been asked to write a book about what happened. I'm 60yrs old and still dealing with the PTSD because...
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Sorry for rabbit trailing, there's just so much to this case. The forensic files which I know my husband altered where only given to him and he shredded them. He supplied most of the bank statements to the forensic. The forensic knew I was very concerned that he'd alter statements, etc.etc. Yes it was a legal separation, x husband is moving next week to CA, I want to get remaining items from settlement. Also I paid 2 appellate attorneys, they said looks like I have a case but again after they took another 50k they told me there were 6 counts against the lower court but suggested I not follow thru because I'd have to pay them another 50K and if once overturned which it only takes 1 count I'd have to spend another 100K. Why didn't they tell me that in the beginning! Apparently they dismissed the case with the appellate courts and it was w/o prejudice. I want to reopen but the secretary of the appellate court said I had only 30days after to do so. There must be a way, if you only knew my whole story you'd be shocked. The only thing that came out of the appellate attorneys going thru all the findings is they found that all 5 attorneys did nothing. There was Hong Kong money involved that were never subpoenaed nor where any one and there where a lot of big players.
