Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to assist you. I encourage you to ask me for clarification, if you are not clear with my Answer.
Have you sent e-mails to your attorney and/or her paralegal/assistant regarding your concerns?
Did you give them a deadline to respond to you?
I have sent emails to all three. I have not given a deadline for fear they won't respond at all or not represent me professionally if I complain.
Thank you for your quick response.
I understand. However, your lawyer has ethical obligation to communicate with you regarding your case. If you are not getting any response from her, reporting her to the Attorney Discipline is the effective way to get her to respond. If you do not want to do that, then you may want to start looking for another attorney since it appears that you have had trust issues with the attorney from the beginning. The new attorney can ask for continuance to get an opportunity to review your case. You can use the following sites to find California divorce attorneys:
