I retained an attorney's services about 7 months ago for representation in a suit against a company that refused to hire me because of unrelated misdemeanors. I paid a $3,500.00 retainer with a promise of an additional 30% of the judgment if the suit was successful. Our contact has been minimal. I last emailed him mid-April 2012 with no response to date. During our last contact, he claimed to be doing extensive"research" but has yet to file anything.
At what point can I fire him and request a full refund of my $3,500.00?
