Sounds like you need a new lawyer. You can try to force him to act by filing a Petition for Order to Show Cause or a Petition to Enforce with the court, but I am not sure you want to do that on your own? You should probably see a new lawyer. If you are concerned about the billing and ethics of your existing lawyer, you might call the State bar and file a complaint. Also, if you are going to get a new lawyer, show him what your current lawyer did first and he will tell you if it is reasonable or not. You can also have his IRA split and half put in your name instead of having him withdraw it now. Does that help? Any other questions?
