Attorney Fees
#1
Cool 
If your attorney drops you, does he still get paid out of future settlement?

probably depends on the situation. generally the fee is split when there are multiple attys. the comp court is usually responsible for determining fees.

My case has been going on for about 8 years
I was rated totally disabled and qualified for Medicare.
being Medicare is involved now it makes a settlement a lot more work
for my attorney so he's trying to get me to replace him. So he can take his cut and let who ever takes over do the work. Problem is that nobody wants the case now because they have to split fees with him.

contact your state bar they may be able to offer a solution.

I was charged with assault and battery and disorderly conduct. The case was dropped before even going to jury trial after the prosecutor advised the plaintiff to drop it. The plaintiff had no witnesses, a lousy case and I had eight witnesses. I was pregnant and due at the time of trial and have no legal experience so I hired an attorney for $750 to defend me on these bogus charges. I am contemplating a small claims case in order to have the plaintiff pay me my attorney fees. Is this a good idea? What are my chances?
