A: Speaking as a defense attorney, this is frustrating for us. We leave voice messages and send emails hoping to engage with the DA to keep out client's matters moving, but sometimes they don't want to engage. Either they are too busy or avoiding us until they get a handle on the case. Hopefully, your lawyer keeps track of the efforts they made to speak to the DA. The DA will need to account at some point why they have not responded. Be patient and trust that your lawyer is doing their job.
