I'm toward the end of a lawsuit, where I am the defendant in

I'm toward the end of a lawsuit, where I am the defendant in a probate court case where my uncle/mother filed a lawsuit to force us to decant a trust that they are the co-trustee's to. my brother and I chose inexpensive lawyers due to our financial situation and my mother and uncle chose the most expensive lawyer in town. Since last Fall I have found the plaintiff's attorney and my brother attorney and my attorney very corrupt. My attorney has never acted in my best interest, always as if he was working for the plaintiffs, production, discovery and interrogatories were due last Friday, Feb. 17, both the defense attorneys informed their respective clients, (me and my brother), that our responses to the discovery period were due last Monday, Feb. 20 instead of what the county website said. Myself and the plaintiff's attorney came close to an agreement on Monday, with one or two minor changes in the verbiage of the agreement, but there was no reponse, so yesterday at 3:30 pm I informed my attorney through email to send in my responses to the interrogatories and I never heard a response from him.JA: Since estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Question: In Texas probate court, will the court except my discovery responses two or three days late, even if I have to hand carry them? Can I hire a new attorney with only the pre-trial and trial left next weekJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No, but it was only yesterday at 3:30 PM that I emailed my request to to my attorney. How many don't respond when they have email ont heir phone? Also, during my negotiation with the plaintiff's attorney, I emailed her a file with my signature attached to the agreement document.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: yes, again I sent the plaintiffs attorney a file of a signed agreement notarized, but with one proviso in the body of the email requesting listing of all the trust assets. Can she file the signed agreement even though I stated a proviso
