Thank you for contacting with your question. I will provide legal information related to your question.


If you did receive some sort of communication then the attorney is meeting their burden under the rules of ethics, even if they are only writing you to tell you that they are transferring your case to another attorney. If they failed to give proper representation during the 2 weeks that they did not return calls you can still file a complaint for that 2 week time period if you had damages.
