Hoping for some help on this; it's a long story:
I signed into a class action lawsuit against Unocal for damages. Many people dropped from the class action to seek damages through Unocal mediation and other class actions. My attorney, convincing me to stay on the lawsuit though I tried to ask him to drop me, assured that I would receive monetary conpensation.

To make a long story short, he dropped the second half of the case, and I signed gaining nothing from his services (or lack thereof). Thus, I didn't recoup expenses I encountered due to relocating and damages.

Is there anything that I can do get back my losses due to Unocal or this attorney?

Why did he drop the 'second half of the case'??

If he dropped it due to fraud, breach, malfeasance, etc., then you might have a cause of action against him.

However, if he dropped it due to lack of evidence, case, etc., you are pretty much out of luck.
