It sounds to me like you’re in a real pickle, being on lawyer No. 2, and still getting nowhere. I have no legal advice, but if I were you, I would want to see an letters, court papers, whatever BEFORE they were mailed or filed.
My attorney took it upon himself to use a document I possessed to poke some fun at opposing counsel, without my knowledge. I don’t approve of such tactics. Then he promised opposing counsel that I would provide them with certain documents, but failed to inform me of that fact. This “mistake” almost put me in court for “dragging my feet and failing to cooperate”. After that, we had a little sit down “discussion”, and now are on the same page.
Maybe you need to make it clear to your attorney who is paying his bills. Be sure to mention that you aren’t to be billed for time spent correcting his mistakes.
