here is the after math... I was able to talk to him the next day and he said he will take care of it. I called him last wed to see if he has mailed the new filing case and check, he said he did. and it is from plano to plano the same city. I called them Friday to the lady at court and she said no mail.. and again everyday of this week.
the lady said there is no way he mailed bc certified mail only take no more than 2 days to get to if in the same city. and also she said it is mandatary to file eastern court via online filing..
and last time when they did receive his mail filing they called him twice and left messages bc they want to give him a login and passwd so he could upload the scanned info to the now dismissed case.. but he never returned the call.
so I contacted him the next day and he called me bck and said ok he will file online and that was tuesday and he said he will contact betty the court lady to make sure all the detail steps.
so I give him 2 days, and yesterday before 4PM I called betty just to get the latest news from her, she said no mail from him and he never called looking to talk to her,
so this morning my parents went to his office, and there were his secretary and an intern boy.
the boy said my lawyer will be here this morning and they are not that busy, and he has a lot of time on his hand if lawyer does need help. then he called my lawyer and the answer was "I will be in court" my parents knew he was lying bc then he kept calling the intern...
then both her and him went into a conf room and closed the door and when they came back, kevan called and asked to speak to my parents and my parents explained their point and said if u are really busy which we understand, my daughter can come and work for u for free to scan and upload this and get this filed.
my dad said there are family illness so he has to be out of town next week and he really want this to be filed asap and nnot wait for close to oct 31st.
my lawyer said he will either by friday or today and by monday he will have the case # XXXXX us.
my question is: is this normal for a lawyer to do this to his client? what would be a good reason for him to delay if he is not that busy?
will he end up not filing all the informaiton online to get back to us? even though we were begging him and not threaten him in anyway.?
at this late stage it is not like i can really fire him and find another one if the case is accepted and there is a hearing. how much can I really rely on a lawyer's professionalism?
even my parents say is it possible he was bought out by the debitor (this is a case 727 against the guy that owed my parents # XXXXX he filed for chapter 7
but he has money we know he just being a fraud and transfered all the money to his kids....)
