Can I ask my lawyer for a copy of my settlement check?

Your lawyer is your agent and is an employee and accordingly, you certainly can ask that he show you a copy of the settlement check. Your lawyer owes you fiduciary duties to disclose amounts that you have been awarded. http://www.ehlinelaw.com Additionally, the insurance company will usually make the check out to you and your attorney as cosigners, so not only are you allowed to see the check, but your attorney will likely have to get you to sign it before it may be cashed. It would also be a good idea to ask for a copy of EVERY check written by the insurance company to your lawyer to determine if the full amount has been paid. The sum of all of the checks should total the final settlement amount, if not you may have grounds for bringing a claim against your lawyer for malpractice.
