Why do lawyers drop clients?
Lawyers can withdraw based on the fact their client refuses to be truthful, refuses to follow the attorney’s advice, demands to pursue an unethical course of action, demands unrealistic results, desires to mislead the Court, refuses to cooperate with their counsel as well as countless other reasons.
What do you do when your attorney ignores you?
If you think your attorney is ignoring you, send a certified letter to his office questioning the silence and that you are prepared to find a new lawyer if necessary. This will jolt him into action. He will respond either by saying the two of you aren’t a good fit, or he will start being much more communicative.
What to do when your attorney will not call you back?
If Your Attorney Will Not Return Your CallYou Need to Write Letters. I appreciate that phone calls are easier and that you shouldn’t have to write a letter to your own attorney. Ask the Phone Receptionist What is Going On. Request Your File – It Is Your Property. If Nothing Else Works, Threaten to File a State Bar Grievance.
