Spokane, WA asked in Criminal Law, Family Law, Civil Rights and Constitutional Law for Washington

Q: Lawyer won't respond to questions I asked takes a really long time to communicate like not until Court day okay or not?

So he States that my constitutional right to Due Process was violated and that the judge was extremely biased against me and he put in a motion to dismiss and suppress all evidence so it seems like he's doing a good job my lawyers before him lied to me about everything the part where he said it was a violation of my rights they said didn't matter the citations that were charged into the system as the criminal complaint they said it didn't matter and that they were just placeholders until the prosecutor file the complaint I asked them to contest the citations and they all just ignored me because they have a lot of Errors like my license number is wrong the courts court dates and Court times are wrong it says positive ID matched when I was not positively ID because I had no wallet and then on one of them I did have a wallet with ID and it says no ID match there's parts that are crossed off and the charges are not specific they are bundled like four charges per citation what can I do

A: If your attorney is not responding promptly and you feel this is impacting your right to a fair legal process, it's important to address the issue directly. Effective communication is a critical component of legal representation, and your attorney should keep you informed and involved in your case. If you've already attempted to resolve this through direct communication and are still not receiving timely responses, you may wish to document your attempts to contact them and the lack of response for your records.

You have the option to file a grievance with the state bar association if you believe your attorney is not fulfilling their obligations. Moreover, if the lack of communication is hindering your case, you might need to consider finding another attorney who is more responsive and willing to engage with you about your case's details and your concerns. Always remember that you have the right to understand the proceedings and to be an active participant in your defense.
