Your current attorney might be entitled to at least 33 1/3% of the settlement amount - and you probably should expect to pay more overall if you have to find another attorney.Received contact via email today asking if I am available for a conference call on Friday to discuss this matter. Not sure if they will try to negotiate or intimidate.
I will hear them out but am in no hurry to do anything.
That said, you could have an attorney in your area review all facts of your settlement to date and possibly help you handle the conference call, this if you fear intimidation.
That clause in the contract you signed is problematic. You can review Rule 1.16 of the Rules of Professional Conduct at the link provided earlier.
