Thank you for your question. I am happy to assist you.

I am a lawyer with 25 years experience. While I am not your lawyer and do not represent you, I will endeavor to provide you with legal information through this open and nonconfidential forum.

Every case is different however typically a case should be heard within one or 2 years. If you are concerned that your attorney is not adequately representing him, I suggest that you retain a new attorney

Best wishes for a Happy and Healthy New Year!

What if they keep stalling to get a court date and it's over two years?
