Told me that if I fired him my H's atty would make a fool of me on the witness stand and tried to scare/threaten me into keeping him... Didn't return calls and when he finally did on Fri told me I was a pain (for asking him questions about what it was he was doing for me) and that I was irritating him... That's all paraphrasing what he said but that's the jist of it.

Totally unprofessional and insane.

Before I ended the conversation and fired him I told him that he was speaking to me much like my H and now that I think about it I'm recalling when I first sat down with him this winter he was VERY adamant about not making H's alcoholism a part of this case -- said I shouldn't "publicize" that and embarrass him.

At the time I thought "of course- he's right".

Maybe I was drunk to think that at the time?!

Re your earlier post about filing for divorce, obviously you don't want to do that until after you've testified. His attourney is a divorce atty, right? He probably sees this coming (you filing), but going after you aggressively may not play well to the judge so likely he will behave.

His atty does divorces but is a criminal defense lawyer and is representing my H for free bc H coached his kid years back and he loved him... Ugh.

Good thought tho on the likelihood of him having incentive to behave... Hadn't thought of that.

Ultimately whatever happens will be what it is and I know all I have to do is tell the truth and if I do that I can deal with whatever gets thrown at me.
