A: If your attorney is not responding then one option is to try to contact her supervisor and if that does not work then insist on talking to the judge directly or write a letter to the court. These are not the common approaches but if it's all you have then go for it. Also, keep in mind that it is not common for a judge will give you a new lawyer, though as with anything it will depend on the overall circumstances.
