JP reach first judgment on 26 Jul 2012. I had 10 days to appeal, my lawyer told me that I signed waiver he was on leave in Florida. When he returned he disclosed that he put the waiver to appeal. I am in TX Coryell county. What can I do. i want jury trial, and I do not agree with judgement
Yes, and he refused. Then I went to judge and prosecutor and told them a same thing and try to submit a bond and they refused. What can I do?
Which court I need to file. JP or county court or district court?
The court was on 25Jul, the judgment was on 26 Jul. My lawyer was not present on 26 jul. Next week tuesday I called his office and ask for appeal, he was on leave in Florida, and told his secretary that I signed waiver for appeal. When he came back 14 days later, we met and he disclosed to me that he did submit waiver to appeal. I asked him to go to court and fix it and he refused.
Then I took witness with me and went to JP court to file a bond. The judge and prosecuter were there and told me that I could not file, even I explained that my lawyer did that without my knowledge. The witness was present.
the judge said that was between me and the lawyer. and it will not be in his court.
I did file griviance to state board. But I need to reopen the case. Please...
