I hired an attorney to represent me in my divorce case. He neglected to check his records and was therefore asked to remove himself from my case due to a conflict of interest since he had seen my husband involving our divorce. I was left without legal council and had to go before the judge myself to ask for a continuance in my case so that I had time to find and pay another attorney. This attorney charged me for the first consult though it was no benefit to me. Do I have a right to ask for this fee back?
