I’m worried my attorney is going to do the same thing she did the last 5 times in court and that is to request to speak to the judge and judges chambers and then all the attorneys go back, confer with the judge, then come out with a written order from the judge. No testimony is heard, and that diminishes any say I have whatsoever on what the attorneys and judge decides in “their” best interest.I’m starting to feel like there is some friend buddy system going on here and do I have any rights or recourse? Can I demand that everything be heard outside of judges chambers.

Please don’t just advise that I get another attorney or A better attorney. I’m Unemployed right now and I can’t afford one.

I would make a verbal request here to be allowed to participate in any conferences. This isn't right to exclude you. You have rights as well. Don't let them exclude you from the process. Speak up don't let them do this without your participation.I would also tell your lawyer that concerns you as well he works for you.

I told her and she has replied as though I don’t get a say in the matter.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
if I make a verbal request then the judge should allow me to also confer?

Follow it up by email to your lawyer, its a paper trial if you have to file grievance and sue for malpractice.And I would also tell the judge this if they go to do one.Cover your bases here.You have rights.I wish you the best.

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.
