I red a lawyer to take over a law suit I had brought to

I hired a lawyer to take over a law suit I had brought to federal court pro se. My lawyer has failed to expose opposing counsel for missing discovery deadlines, and even though they were sanctioned once, the opposing side did something else to misrepresent the defendent they were representing. I have begged my lawyer to expose to judge. He won't...I find out now...that my lawyer was represented in a legal malpractice suit by the opposing counsel .....isn't this a conflict of interest? It certainly has affected the outcome of my case!!!!

I have two commercial businesses sharing the property line

I have two commercial businesses sharing the property line with my primary residence. Local township ordinances require that they maintain their property in a specific manner. Over the last several years, one has failed to meet the basic landscaping requirements in spite of the fact that I have contacted them, the property managers and the township offices regarding the problem. The second business is new to the area and already they are not maintaining their property as they should, leaving me with two identical problems. I have contacted the township code enforcer regarding both businesses and asked that they step in and remedy the situation just as I have done since 2012. Nobody is making any headway nor have they made any in the past enforcing the ordinance in place regarding landscape maintenance for commercially owned properties. The township has many tools at their disposal to effect change but they have not acted on them. This problem has existed for over 4 years where one property owner is concerned and even though the other property owner is new, they are on track to cause the same issues. Not only is this an eyesore for us as property owners but it could affect our property value in the long run. Additionally, it is clear that township ordinance is being violated and the township is not correcting it. What legal action can I take to make these people do what they are supposed to do? Do I have a case against the property owners? Do I have a case against the township? If I do have a case, what type of legal counsel should I seek?
