how do you work out disagreements with your atty?

Unread postby soccerFan437 » Tue Apr 11, 2017 12:46 pm

Has anyone here had any luck resolving disagreements with their own attorney?

A cs mod, so close to the finish line I thought, is running into difficulty. Any tips? Things to try or to avoid?

Other side refused to answer 80+% of discovery. Like last time.

I get pissed because last time I gave them everything they asked for, they answered almost nothing and showed up to mediation with 2 pay stubs.

So im thinking i should not repeat that mistake, i should answer their discovery with as much detail as they answer ours. My guy to be fair is pretty new to this case and seems really busy but wisely argues against that (i always ask them to play devil's advocate). After a few minutes im not convinced but there's enough there so i ask to table it, regroup next week . Mull it over, he's right for this piece of info they're asking for (but have not provided), so Saturday email him that hes right. Then email him the docs monday.

In the background to all of this is a possible recurrence of colon cancer (im not even 50), my back crapping out on me, my brother in law looting most of my dad's estate and the ex starting to actively prevent me from seeing Jr's extracurriculars...

We are going to need a lot of details, a time line of everything and where you are today.

How many kids and what ages too.

So far all we know is you filed for a CS modification in GA and the other side isn't producing everything you have asked for and im not even sure if that is correct.

The key point of discovery is that it is an exchange. That word explicitly means quid pro quo. You < edited > up by handing over all your docs and getting nothing in return. Your lawyer seems to suck the big one.

I'm sure nobody here will be surprised, but I made this very mistake. In fact there were many times where I should have waited for NJ to make the first move.
