The simple answer may be … get a new lawyer. If your lawyer is not doing what you want (filing a lawsuit) and you do not agree with his or her reasoning as to why this isn’t the correct path, perhaps you need new legal counsel. However, that being said, I recommend a cost benefit analysis. Litigation is a costly venture. Is it worth spending money to litigate the outstanding issue?
Best of Luck.
