Legal Absurdity

Wondering if I’ve seen the first draft of our contract yet? The answer would be no and I’m less than pleased about it.

Here’s the deal:

8/28 Medical clearance

9/1 Talked to lawyer and agreed to work together

9/9 Was told by agency that lawyer said his absences this month would make for a 3-4 weeks delay so I decided to pick a new lawyer. Talked to new lawyer and decided to work together

9/10 New lawyer then let me and IPs lawyer know that she was going to be at a conference from 9/14-9/20

9/19 contract is emailed to my lawyer

9/22 I email lawyer and ask when I can expect the contract, no response

9/25 email lawyer again (I noticed she used a different email than the one on her website) and she replied saying that she’s been busy since she got back and she’d have it to me by 9/28 or 9/29

9/30 (today) get an email saying that she’s been too busy to get it done and now has to be out of the country all next week. She’s hoping she will have it to my by 10/9 or 10/10 YOU HAVE GOT TO BE FUCKING KIDDING ME!!! By that time she will have had the draft for 3 freaking weeks!

Needless to say I’m livid. At this rate we should have just stuck with the first lawyer. So that’s where we’re at and I officially hate the legal stage and I haven’t even seen the contract yet 😠😠

That’s my vent, enjoy your weekend πŸ˜‰
