It’s not your responsibility to know everything. That’s what professionals like dentists, CPAs and — of course — lawyers are for.
Question: My attorney has been representing me for about 6 months, and frankly, he doesn’t seem to know what he is doing. I am in the middle of trying to get divorced. My husband’s attorney is sending us inquiries about my income, bonuses, assets etc.
Question: I hired my attorney over a year ago for my divorce. He filed the papers to begin the case, but has done nothing since that I am aware of. He hasn’t even served my ex with the papers. My ex could care less—he doesn’t have an attorney, is not paying child support and we rarely hear from him. I call my attorney’s office regularly and leave messages but I never hear back.
