i just went to mediation last week and during this i come to find out that the attourney for the carrier used to work for the firm i selected, i feel that they should have told me this when they asked me the name of the carriers attourney during the intake process they have. i feel that this is a conflick of interest on there part, and also the mediator was good freinds with the carriers attourney as well as the paraleagle for the firm i retained.please give me all imputs on this so that i know that what i am feeling about this is right. thanks all
I think I would change firms. They should have disclosed this and I dont know why they would hide it. Should you stay with them and lose, I would think you would have a malpractice suit against them for non disclosure. At any rate, whether you would or not is immaterial...the important thing is they were not upfront with you, you are uncomfortable, and it is probably best to seek other representation.
