If he offered advice against his client, he should be fired and possibly be sued by Penske, despite how bad the issue might be. In other words, he will most likely not give advice, unless he is not a good lawyer. If he is not a good lawyer, do you really want his advice?
Good points on asking for advice, but I'd still ask. OP loses nothing by asking. I've seen plenty of lawyers get things done. Unfortunately in this world, sometimes being a nudge is how you get things done. The GM is an obvious asshole, so the OP has another ear, might as well grab hold.
