Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello: This is Attorney Phillips. Welcome to Justanswer! I will be assisting you today with your post. I am sorry to read about your difficulties. However, I need clarification.
Are you saying that the Attorney who supposed to be representing in a legal malpractice case, but withdrew is now representing the opposing party in your eviction case?
I am preparing my response to your post and I will post it very shortly. Thank you for your patience.
Thank you for the clarification.
If he is back on the case without you knowing about it, you need to tell the Court the truth that you are now representing yourself and he should not be speaking for you.
The Court must allow you to file your Motion to Vacate and schedule it for a hearing. It is your case. You have a right to represent yourself if you choose to. So, you should proceeding in preparing and filing the Motion to Vacate.
Let me know if you need further clarification.

I have no idea whether the system automatically added him. The Clerk's office is the place where you should address this question.
You can go in front of the Judge and tell the Judge that you need to represent yourself because you and your Attorney are not communicating anymore. That you do not know why the Attorney put himself back on the case.
The Judge has to allow you represent yourself because it is ultimately your decision whether to be represented by an Attorney or not.
No, you do not.
