Thanks for your question. Make sure that your other lawyer has officially withdrawn. Once it is clear that you are on your own here, pro se then he should communicate with you in this matter. He has that obligation , he just has to be careful not to talk to you if it isn't clear that your lawyer is off the case.
Because if you are represented it is unethical here to talk to someone's client. But if ther has been a withdrawal no reason for him not to talk to you here. The court will require him to comply with your requests in the matter. You would file a motion to compel here to force the issue. I wish you good luck here
The lawyer shoudl have filed a motion to dismiss. You can just do a letter here to the court advsing that you now represent yourself pro se and copy the other lawyer. Then he would be free to talk to you here. It's a catch 22 the lawyer isn't ignoring he just can't talk to you unitl you've notified the court you're on your own pro se.
It's an ethics issue to talk to someone's client so this will cure here. I wish you good luck. If you don't get the discovery then it is Petitioner or Respondent's Motion to Compel here. You would just be alleging that the other side hasn't complied with your discovery requests..
Here's a fill in the blank motion to compel here that you might use for form..
