Q: Hi I have a Work Comp case currently the questions I have, what do you do when you haven't talk to your attorney
In months and they haven't responded to you about your case moving forward
A: Call them up and demand a meeting. If they refuse, you have a right to take your file and go to another firm. The claim is yours, not the attorney's.
Glenn Neiman agrees with this answer
A: I completely agree with Mr. Belt. As attorneys, we need to make sure we keep our clients informed about what is happening in their cases. Your attorney needs to do a better job in communicating, but you should be demanding that he or she do a better job! Good luck!
A: I agree with Mr. Belt but instead of demanding a meeting, I'd do it a little less in their face, and say tell them as you seem to not be getting calls back you want an appointment where you can sit down with the attorney, you realize they are busy but offer to meet them some evening or weekend.
