Greetings. I am not sure that I have followed the entire post, but if an attorney has a conflict of interest, they cannot represent you. I would tell you to shop around, find an attorney with a flat fee who is board certified, and retain that firm! It is not always bad to have someone with a new perspective. Best of luck.
