2014.05.24 05:27 Ineedlegalhelp1 [NYC] Where can I obtain my case file? if my lawyer never gave it to me and refuse to.
Im located in nyc and I'm planning to file a complaint against my current lawyer.
My case is done and a judgement has been reached. My lawyer(free lawyer only gets his cut if case wins)never gave me any of my case files and refuse to give any court documents to me. he Has not shared any details with me and refuse to see me or answer my calls. I attempted several times to visit his office and his assistant keeps saying hes not there. I have my case index number. I was wondering if its possible to request all my case files with that case index number from my county clerk office. Hes also having checks sent to him under my name and cashing it. I found out last week and my lawyers has been calling me to come in to sign a document . He says so i can get the money owed to me if not the money will be gone. Im not sure what to do but .. heres my plan
I plan to contact my ny bar association so they can offer a legal referral for my current situation and i will be filing a complaint against my lawyer with the ny court system.
The thing now is i really want to get my case file i can see the basic info from the ny court system but thats about it. I was wondering whats the procedure to obtain my case file. https://iapps.courts.state.ny.us/webcivil/ecourtsMain
