Q&A: How long is normal for a lawyer to respond to your question?


by taminator

Question by Info Sponge: How long is normal for a lawyer to respond to your question?
I am in a case based on contingency.
My original lawyer was fab and I slept well at night knowing that he was taking care of things.
He left the company and started his own firm.
The office seems overwhelmed since he left. I can go months without any correspondance, and all correspondance is based on me asking.
At first I gave them the benefit of the doubt and assumed the whole time that they were working on my case, but when I beg for an update I pretty much realize that nothing has happened.
I had to remind them five weeks ago that the statute of limitations was coming up. They filed for an extension.
I haven’t spoken to my “offical lawyer” for over a year. The three times I’ve asked for a conferance call, all-of-a-sudden my lawyer has been changed.
It’s too late and expensive to change firms at this point. It’s hard to get out of a contingency agreement (40%). They are actually a good firm but understaffed. They keep telling me that they can’t respond because they will be travelling for court.
Because of the time frame, I’ve had to take the bull by the horns and do my own research, hire my own para-legal, do my own asset search, research medical journals, secure witnesses, and so on.
I’m not interested in harrassing them, I’m only interested in settling my case as fast and as efficiently as possible.

Considering that we have only 9 weeks to file suit: The last email they sent me was three weeks ago. It was to say that they will be in trial on another case.
I’ve sent an email about every ten days asking to arrange a conferance call and asking if they have the lab results to send me. I’ve only been able to speak to them on the phone once in 12 months. It’s been three weeks since an email reply.
I’ve never been in a civil case before (hopefully will never have to again).
Is this normal or am I being too polite slash screwed?

Q&A: Head of Court apointed for 29 years, to a new lawyer?? felony case – First offence?

Question by elguy81: Head of Court apointed for 29 years, to a new lawyer?? felony case – First offence?
1. I am going to court for automobile insurance fraud, now this is a felony if i plea. My lawyer told me that he can try to swing for a mistameanour plea.

2. He can not promise anyhting, but what he can promise is that he will work harder than the ” head of court apointed lawyer” that i have now..

3. All the motions, and evidence has been given to my attorney. Now, my attorney is known and respected in superiour court. HE has been court apointed for 28 years.

4. This new lawyer i am talking to, he knows the DA they went to school or something togethere. Does this help, or can it equal the same relation ship and respect my lawyer has with the DA that is working on the case.

5. The new lawyer is charging me, 10k,, five up front for my case. and he will try to go to trial and make a plea of mistameanor, instead of a felony.

6. Does this mean that, he will try to plea to a mistameanor befor trial. But he stated that he will go to trial with this. Sorry if i contradicted and confused with the begining of this sentance.

Note: I have a clean record, this so called fraud is set to had happen in 2003, march and i have been in College ever since, graduate from Computer Enginering in 2010.
1. New lawyer stated, he can fight for a mistamenour.
2. I was told the same to stick with the court apointed, in superior court.
3. Would a mistamenour affect my employment in the engineering field
4. Or should i just take it to trial and see what happens..
5. Someone plead guilty to our case, because he got a sweeet deal.. I dont want to do that

Best answer:

Answer by Slappy
If your court appointed lawyer is a public defender, stick with him or her. They are usually the best trial lawyers you can find in any county.

He is saying that he will try to get a deal where you can plead guilty to a misdemeanor in exchange to dropping the felony. He is also saying that if this doesnt happen, he is willing to go to trial.

Either way, stick with the public defender.
