When I first came to see him he promised me and made me feel that I had a good case and that he would get me a lot of money for my case. So I signed the paper agreement for him to take half but he said he will take a long time that's why he said he needed half. But once he took my case he changed everything and said my case is no good and that I would probably owe if I lose the case. So I just decided to settle my case for lower amount and he actual got more then me. plus he only worked on my case for 3 months and got $13,000 thousand for just calling the other attorney. I feel like I been played so I was wondering if this right or not. please help
