The lawyer must account for what he received and turn over the copy of the check and any settlement so you can confirm. The lawyer is only entitled to keep whatever fee you agreed to, normally 1/3 of the recovery. If lawyer refuses you may report lawyer to local lawyer disciplinary committee and may first write the lawyer and demand this information with a short deadline to produce before doing so. Such a letter should be met with a detailed explanation with back up.

The next step I went to the court to file a Civil Claim with the whole evidence and he hard copies is on my position, I went to NC bar Association telling me this same thing

If lawyer collected, lawyer has to account for collection and if you threaten to sue and report to the discplinary bar, the latter being free option to clients, lawyer should comply.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
