He is telling me that he has found an attorney that will take his case against me for alimony and ED for free in exchange for working the AA/CC suit against my 3rd party. That the payoff from the AA/CC suit is going to cover the fees for both lawsuits. I doubt this is true because although personal injury lawyers may work this way, I’ve heard that divorce attorneys all want a retainer upfront and that AA/CC retainers can be substantial, like $10k or greater.
What do you think from what you know about attorneys who can practice in NC? We are in Mecklenburg county if that matters.
