since the 2nd lawyer is basically doing nothng more than postponing court dates and
being all smoke and mirrors . having me sit in the couthouse for 4 hrs lat friday only to put me at an ultimatum of pay at least the fee for him to plea bargain in a month or he'll drop me. basically the associate went in , filed for motion of withdrawl in 30 days unless payment is made , i mean for something they could have called me about and said ,well we are pushing for this and you need to have this paid by, not make me sit in the courthouse for 4 hrs just to have them file that motion and not do anything else.
i may not even have a job in july as i work contract and am struggling , i felt like it been given a raw deal as he has his retainer of 250 plus 700 dollars of mine ,indicating that the retainer fee doesnt come out of the plea or trial fees. so instead of 950 towards it , its 700 and that i owe 1800 more for at least plea bargain.
so my question is ,, im not feeling good about this .
i had a prior arrest 11 yrs ago for DUI but it was dismissed so this would be considered a first offense .. what are my options ,, since i feel this lawyer is screwing with me .. do i simply go to court on that date and they file for withdrawal and ask for a court appointed attorney.. and the money ive alrwady paid for this attorney seems wasted as he's done basically nothing but show up for court dates to postpone them and look at the video .. do i lose that money as well. i just am confused ans dont know what to do . its been going on for over 2 years ,,one good thing is , i did have the alr hearing and won that , so my license was not suspended .
