I'm a small business owner defending myself against

I'm a small business owner defending myself against pregnancy discrimination from ex-employee that was fired on same day she declined to train 5 new employees where she was scheduled, decided to show up at a different location to work and caused major chaos on stated training day. I also have witnesses to testify to plaintiffs bizarre behavior for being fired. My problem is that I'm starting to feel very stuck in legal fees and feel that my attorney is milking me; rather than ending case. I understand there is a legal process, as gone through depositions now, discoveries, motions; etc...as I continue to pay ten of thousands on legal fees now for latest motion to compel, next motion to summary judgement...the opposing counsel has done literally nothing. They have not produced anything, won't return my lawyers calls/emails (other than VERY limited), their witnesses both have not appeared for depositions (and now we're doing subpoenas)...and now the opposing lawyer is dropping out of case and turning over to a junior associate at his same firm. I'm going crazy here; as I realized when opposing attorney just stepped back and my lawyer still playing nice with other side...my lawyer doesn't have my best interest. What would happen if I fired my attorney and told opposing counsel; I'll just show up at court to jury trial? I'm falsely being sued...and I can't afford to just keep paying out legal fees to defend the process of law. Only person winning is my lawyer; by collecting payments from me

I recieved a County Court Subpoena in reference to the

I recieved a County Court Subpoena in reference to the custody a a child after a divorce of a couple over ten years ago. I really don't know why I have been subpoenaed other than the fact that I knew both party's. My wife just had severe back surgery three weeks ago and I still have to help her to the bathroom and even getting up out of bed. I explained it to the Court Judges Secretary and he replied to her that he could not get involved.I called the Attorneys office who sent the subpoena a total of 6 or 7 times in two days explaining my excuse but only answer that the lawyers secretary said the lawyer said was either show up or the Sheriff will come pick you up. Nobody seems concerns about my wife and my situation. Who approves the excuse and why isn't anyone concerned. In other words I can't leave my wife alone. She close to total helplessness. Please respond. They only gave me a two day notification. Thanks!!!

What are the laws in Kansas about photographic evidence and

What are the laws in Kansas about photographic evidence and collection of? I have a situation where a complicated trial is about to start and some of the most important evidence I have is from a few pictures that were taken inside the defendants home. Basically, they are of a cabinet full of "evidence" that the defendant is claiming they didn't have. This photo of the inside of his house with the evidence in it is all the proof u have but I'm worried about it being thrown out. After all, it was taken while I was inside his house.
