2. Why do you have a "Verbal Agreement" vs. an ironclad written one?
At the end of the day, you need to take some responsibility and realize that emailing your attorney is not a "get out of jail free card." You are in a situation with a HCP, you need to realize that this means this person cannot be trusted and that's when you have an agreement in writing. In your case you did not and that only makes things worse.
With all that being said, I think you are over worried about things, and I think this attorney of yours is a wimp that you are better off without. Kidnapping really? Google that one, it is bad enough that OC actually brings up something so stupid, but far worse that your attorney actually agrees with it.
At the end of the day, I don't see this going anywhere in court, her hands are far from clean and you basically had a misunderstanding. What I am more worried about is your attorney caving to the OC and attempting to sell you on an unjust one-sided agreement that will further serve to get you in trouble when it is inevitably violated. However, once you agree to those terms, you are fecked.
I will never make either of those mistakes again.
Furthermore, I am genuinely unsure how to prevent this language fault but I keep doing it unintentionally. I try to be thorough about explaining my thought process so people can point out where I went wrong, I am fully responsible for messing up.
Somewhere at the root of this mess is I seemingly process information differently.
I am the one who ordered the transcript to resolve the verbal I already sold everything of value, I have no savings, borrowed from everyone I could. I'm tapped out resources wise and constantly fighting a narrative that I am "unstable". I don't see how I could even entertain switching attorneys again. I was so happy, but he is seeming like a paper tiger.

Can you elaborate on this please?
I'd like to add, if anyone has read my post history and thinks I am actually unstable, I am open to hearing I have been approaching this whole situation wrong.
