Houston, TX asked in Criminal Law, Civil Rights, Constitutional Law and Construction Law for Texas

Q: Help please

Short question is I had a lawyer that was going to take over my felony I was under the assumption that he had talked to my lawyer and got that paperwork taken care of I had called him regarding a court date he informed me that it had been canceled rescheduled in fact it hadn't been and now I have a warrant I thought that because he was talking to me about my case that he was my lawyer turns out he hadn't got a chance to switch lawyers put in the paperwork when I found out I had a warrant I called him and said hey man I called you and you told me that my court date was canceled now I've got a warrant he told me well I'm not your lawyer you need to contact your lawyer on that. Now I'm thinking why would you inform me that my court had been canceled if you where not my lawyer. Shouldn't he have told me in the beginning that he had not gotten the paperwork in yet. Because me and my mom were literally on the way to court when I was told that it had been canceled by this lawyer
