Your attorney can object to the continuance when it is requested the next time and present evidence showing that the continuance is just to seek a delay. That is where your evidence that you believe the medical issues are being trumped up can come into play.
Just as a side note, the fact that your attorney isn't board certified shouldn't necessary be a cause for concern. There are plenty of attorneys that practice in Texas without certification. The requirements for board certification are as follows:Q2. What are the basic requirements to become Board Certified?
To become Board Certified in a specialty area, an attorney must have:
Been licensed to practice law for at least five years;
Devoted a required percentage of practice to a specialty area for at least three years;
Handled a wide variety of matters in the area to demonstrate experience and involvement;
Attended continuing education seminars regularly to keep legal training up to date;
Been evaluated by fellow lawyers and judges;
Passed a 6-hour written examination.
Basically, an attorney can have all of the above experience and just have not taken the exam. The exam is the only that seperates most more "mature" (5+ years of practice) family law
attorneys from a Board Certifed family law attorney.
That said, if you do not think your attorney has the time to properly devote to your case, I certainly do encourage you to consider releasing him from your service and using avvo.com or google to find an attorney who can be more responsive to your needs in Dallas County.
