You're right not to destroy the documents, as a time might come when you might need them again. And I'n not sure that lawyers ever actually testify, or that their statement of what happened before would be accepted by any court in the absence of the documents. And jordan's suggestion that you ask the lawyer whether they might make and attest a document about the case now, makes sense - in years to come, the same lawyer(s) may no longer be around
Is there the lawyer who handled your case able to store them ? Or your bank may offer safe storage, or some such arrangement. I understand your desire no to feel tied to that bitter case, but it's a psyhological tie, to the case and all it represented, and not to the documents as such, so getting rid of the documents won't automatically free you of the bad feelings. OK, having them under your desk to stub your toes on may no help. At a push, maybe at the back of a cupboard, with a handful of mothballs ?
