I was wrongfully terminated by a major oil company. All kinds of mis-information, "creative accounting", false documentation, harrassment and discrimination was used to get rid of me. I have a great majority of it and provided it to my lawyer. During that period before I was fired I was on what I guess was FMLA. I tape recorded a few phone calls just to try to figure out what I was supposed to do.
This has been an almost five year fight. I'm told they had sued me for recording them without their prior knowledge and have gone after me. They've offered a "pitifully low" settlement to make all go away. I have rejected it and want to go to court.
Why is my lawyer giving me drama and saying "I really should take this settlement." "There's no more money to be offered." "You're not thinking about all the work we've done in this case." "You're making a big mistake going to court?"???
Isn't it my choice to go to court? His answers to my questions leave me wondering if they are really in my cornor.
