Q: How to find out if my current lawyer is working on my case?
It's been almost 4 months since I hired him, I was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. I was released on a bond and been under partial house arrest since then. I want to know if my lawyer is working on my case. How do I find out?
A: Call him/her. Good lawyers will freely talk to their clients and show you what they have done. All lawyers must communicate with their client. If the lawyer won't get back with you then you should hire another lawyer and look at remedies with the State Bar.
Mr. Shannon Willis Locke agrees with this answer
A: Give them a call. You need to know the plan and the strategy for your case. When a client hires me for a charge as serious as this I give them my cell phone number and make sure they understand the plan. I also make sure they know they can meet with me over video or cell phone until they feel comfortable. Good luck!
