Ok, I've never really been involved in a court case and I really don't know much about the technical side of law, I just manage to stay out of trouble with the law . . . I'm hoping someone real knowledge can help me out. Here's my question: My main character is getting sued and is upset with his lawyer/firm, but can't, for many reasons, get rid of them. Would it be allowable and or plausible for him to have a secondary counsel to help with reasearch, etc? Does this ever happen that someone would have multiple firms for representation? If it is totally unallowable and/or not plausible - is there a loophole? -- a way to get other counsel unofficially involved on a technical level to where the secondary counsel would have full knowledge of what went on in and out of court on the case?
