Since we're on the topic of lawyers, and I think OP definitely needs one..

Denis - Make sure you clarify up front any attorney fees - how much per phone call, email, etc. etc. Bills can run up fast and it can be a shocker when you think it was a "quick phone call" and the attorney charges a few hundred Francs. Document every time and conversation you have at the time you have it, so you can have a sense of how much to expect.
This is a really important point. Spend the time with your lawyer giving the lawyer information that they need to help and you asking the questions that you need to know.

I've heard that many clients spend a lot of time (and a lot of money) explaining how they were wronged and going over their anger and their feelings with the lawyer. Use the lawyer for law and use your friends (or perhaps a counselor or psychologist) for your feelings.
