A: Sorry, but that is broad question. You need to talk to the attorney who handled the case and see what your chances are going to be.

A: MORE INFO NEEDED.

I WOULD TELL MY ATTORNEY, PRIVATE OR APPOINTED, THAT THERE SEEMS TO BE A PROBLEM WITH COMMUNICATION.

EXPLAIN YOU WOULD LIKE TO REQUEST ANOTHER LAWYER AND TO HAVE A JURISDICTIONAL HEARING OR JUDGE IF THERE ARE GROUNDS.

THE COURTS ARE DETERMINED BY THE AREA WHERE THE ALLEGED CRIME TOOK PLACE.

UNLESS YOU HAVE GOOD CAUSE IT WILL BE AN UPHILL BATTLE TO GET ANOTHER JUDGE.........AND THAT MAY BE TRUE FOR A NEW ATTORNEY TOO.

HOWEVER, YOU WANT TO MAKE A RECORD IF YOU ARE GOING TO APPEAL ANYTHING IN THE FUTURE.
