Now my atty is saying he will not submit it because of this statement. I was under the impression that he had to submit it anyway. After all, why would the big company care if I am unhappy with my attys, they are settling for a lot less than if I continued to pursue. Does my attorney have to submit the papers if I want him to submit them with the statement? Please, I am not sure where else to turn. Thanks for your help!
That is really not a good idea as sevral people have noted.

You either sign it or you don't. Anything else just creates confusion.
Also frankly I would think some attorneys on the other side would NOT accept such a document.

Go through the statement once again, be sure at your side before stepping ahead.

After SIX months I don't think the OP cares anymore. Try to be more timely with your comments or just forget about it.
