Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I type out an answer or reply.

.

Can you restate your question... it doesn't make a lot of sense..

.

My attorney couldn’t reach me for some reason and dried me as a client so I got. Cpias issied can she pick me back up as a client still?

.

Are you saying your attorney withdrew from your case?

.

And something was issued from the court?

.

Is this a civil case or a criminal case?

.

.

thanks

I apologize I was so upset at that moment. Yes she sis she had tried to get in touch with me but I had no cn no text. I got one sting I need to talk but cannot tonight. I had paid half her retainer and told her my bf would call in second part. She said the judge had dropped probation and jail offer just had to pay fines. That’s the last I heard. I tried her cell no answer. No call. I checked website and she had dropped me for not communicating and the judge retreated order and ordered a capias. I am so upset. I just need to know can I pay her more communicate and get this resolved as planned or hire another attorney. I will pay whatever necessary. Thank you for responding.

Also its a criminal case. Btw.
Lawyer: Barrister, Attorney replied 8 months ago

No worries.. I completely understand.

.

Ok, then yes, there is nothing that would prevent the attorney from resuming the representation. When an attorney doesn't hear from a client for a while, especially in a criminal case, and they haven't been paid, they don't want to have to tell the judge that they don't know where the client is, especially if they miss court dates, so they will just withdraw from the case.

.

But there is nothing that would stop them from picking the case again if you pay them what you agreed to..

.

.

thanks

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
