What if my lawyer is not communicating with me?

Answer:

Attorneys are required to maintain contact with their clients in order to keep them informed. The biggest complaint to the Bar every year is that a lawyer failed to return a phone call. A failure to return a call is not likely to give rise to a legal malpractice claim, but it is unprofessional and may be considered a warning sign. Your attorney should be prompt about returning phone calls. Keep in mind that if your attorney is in trial or depositions that they might not be in a position to maintain constant contact with you. If you are uncomfortable with your attorney’s lack of effort in communication, you may want to consider hiring a new lawyer.
