He has never reached out for an intro or update and I have to hound his paralegal for updates. In my last update I found out that he hasn’t even gotten a number from the insurance company that covers all my medical bills from the at faults insurance company because he misstated my total medical bills. He also send the demand letter without notifying me of the demand amount. He has had this case for almost a year. Can I fire him?

For more context, I had $15k of medical bills, paid close to $3k out of pocket (deductible /copays) most of it was due to ambulance charges from the scene, MRIs, and ER charges. Insurance has offered $11k. He keeps hounding me to tap into my own personal injury protection, but I strongly believe that I can’t sign it over when he’ll just skim 1/3 off the top and I probably won’t see a penny of it since most of it would go to paying my insurance company back on what they’ve paid out. His paralegal also told me he wouldn’t negotiate my medical bills lower until I settled, but how can I settle without know how much I would end up with? Smells like BS.

Fire him

I find it a bit odd to post here, but I figure that this is the place to receive the most accurate and inside information. I am a rising super senior (took 2 semesters off to work) graduating in December 2020. I attend a target school on the west coast for undergrad and had an internship at Parthenon last summer for my junior internship. Due to various reasons, I decide that I will no longer want to return there and want to re-recruit for consulting full time this fall. However
