You will need to instruct your attorney to file a motion to withdraw. Once an attorney has appeared on your behalf, you cannot file court papers on your own behalf in a civil case. Your attorney will have to file a motion to withdraw.
Alternatively, you can hire another, more responsive...View More

I sign a contract of aggressive representation and 10 hrs of legal work for an amount paid .I only got a 40 min phone call to be told he can't represent me or nothing but this happen after I paid...

While it is possible that you may have legitimate grounds to dispute the fee, you should not necessarily assume that the 40 minute phone call was the only legal work performed by the attorney and his law firm on your behalf.
Depending upon the facts of your situation, the attorney may have...View More
Case numbers can be changed for various reasons, such as administrative errors or if the case is transferred to a different court. However, changing a case number after an arrest and while waiting for trial is unusual and may indicate that there have been significant changes to the case, such as a...View More
However, many attorneys (especially personal injury attorneys) include in their fee agreement a provision in which the client provides consent for the attorney to settle the case on the client’s behalf.
Most attorneys, including those with such provisions in their fee...View More
You should look here in Justia for an experienced attorney board certified in civil litigation with a background in oil and gas litigation and in real estate litigation, ideally located in the county (or an adjacent county) where the stolen oil and gas wells are located.
I plan to expose those who are corrupt in the Law Enforcement and Justice Department. Corruption will not be committed on my watch as an American Veteran and Advocate for those who can’t defend themselves… They are putting innocent individuals in jail and in prison…
You can sue an attorney, yes. That is called malpractice.
Judges are exempt from suit because of how they ruled on your case. The best you can do is file a complaint with the Texas Judicial Board, but you need serious evidence. Merely ruling against you is insufficient. Your best way to...View More

I have not seen any caselaw that will allow what you are seeking. Once you are not "actually confined" it is almost impossible to get habeas relief. You could litigate and appeal the issue but I do not see you being successful without a showing of signifigant or real confinment or other...View More
I have had an assigned lawyer for 11 months. During that time she has been extremely uncommunicative, not answering any requests for info about my defense. Not confirming that she receives my calls or emails. She has not done anything in my defense to prepare for trial. Last week, prior to a... View More
It sounds like you have already taken the proper steps by documenting your communications and approaching the judge. Many court-appointed lawyers are overworked and underpaid. Client communications are time-consuming and are not always helpful to the attorney's preparation of a defense....View More
I got a hold, via a court FOIA request, of my 2016 arrest records. When I got indicted and charged, I kept getting told that my charge could not get entirely dismissed because the "witness statements" said something that was too "serious" to get my much more concrete piece of... View More
The best time to fight criminal charges is BEFORE you take a plea. The only way to get Deferred Adjudication is to enter a plea of Guilty or No Contest (which is the same as Guilty with regard to a criminal case anyway.) In almost all cases, a defendant only has 30 days to start the appeals...View More
I was referred to our attorney by a neighbor. My lawyer has been sharing opinions details and information about our case to this person. That person is someone I recently had to file a police report on for stealing close to $800. When I confronted my attorney and reiterated what was being said she... View More
The first thing is have someone perform an autopsy on your husband’s body to determine the cause of his death. Ask the medical examiner to focus on any mistreatment or malpractice that might have contributed to his death. Include a full toxicology screen.
Hi I went to court, the paper I signed stating what my next court date was, said the 14th of November. My bail bondsman sent me an email on the 6th saying that I had court on the 14th. My court date on the 14th was cancelled I have a text from my lawyer to prove it. This is where I get lost. I get... View More
There is simply no way anyone could possibly answer this question in this forum. You should talk to your bail bondsman and show him the paperwork you were given showing your court date. And get another attorney to investigate for you
The court ordered you to pay $2000 almost 2 years ago. According to the rules of civil procedure if you don’t pay within 10 days of when you were ordered the court can strike your pleadings. You have paid a total of $50 leaving an outstanding deposit balance of $1950. If that... View More
