This answer was rated:

I hired a lawyer to represent me in an unlawfull termination case. He has apparently decided he no longer wants to be on the case . He refuses to respond to any communication. He has information regarding the case that I need and only he can provide. How can I get him to at least give me the information I need to proceed.
