There is [a contract], and I was very rushed to sign EVERYTHING. He never gave me time to read anything. This should have been my first sign.


I am not a lawyer, but:

While you are responsible for reading everything you sign, it can sometimes be argued that certain contracts are the kind of thing nobody bothers to read anyway, especially if the content of the contract is communicated verbally in good faith. While it would be difficult to prove that you were forced to sign anything (ie, don't bother trying to take it to court without a videotape of you being rushed), you might try writing a letter to the state bar association (in your most formal English) describing the situation. You can't prove what was said to you, but enough complaints of unethical counsel can result in investigation or disbarring of a lawyer. With a name like "Law Tigers," the practice may already be recognized as cut-rate sleazeballs by the bar, with members looking for an excuse to investigate them.
