Greetings. If your husband had already retained the attorney before you contacted them, then the attorney had a conflict of interest. One of the only responses that is allowed when you have a conflict of interest with someone that is calling your office is to inform them that you are not taking any more cases. Under the rules (that attorneys have to live by), we cannot tell the person there is a conflict.
Unfortunately, the attorney representing your husband could not tell you anything else, but the trust issue is understandable. I don’t think that you are supposed to trust his attorney, just your own. Sorry to hear that you were hurt by this, but I hope the explanation gives you more understanding. Thanks
