Lawyer is refusing to give me file after settlement and disbursements? What can I do?
More details to this question:
I recently settled a lawsuit and all the settlement papers have been signed including the attorney''s closing statement. I have asked for my file and am being told "we never give the client the file, we can copy it for you and the cost is $1.00 per page but what do you want it, what good is it"? I don''t want to appear rude but I''m entitled to the file-period, what is the best way to get my point across to the attorney? Do I have any recourse if he refuses? I''m told the file is approx 100 pages.
Thank you for your participation your report will be reviewed.
