Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi, I'm Heather, a family law attorney with 15 years experience.
Many attorneys wait until the day before to get ready, so that the case is fresh in their mind on the day of the hearing. Some attorneys don't get ready until just before the hearing. I myself do not wait like that, but alot of attorneys do. You've hired this attorney to represent your mom, and have to trust that he will get ready when he needs to. Leave messages at his office, and I'm sure he'll get back to you this week. Hopefully, he doesn't wait until just before the hearing, but I've seen that happen before. It's not fun for you, but if he was going to start getting ready now, he'd have to charge you more money, because then, he'd have to get ready again later when, closer to the hearing, he has to get the case fresh in his head.
