I asked question about an ADA who wasn’t returning calls about an agreement offered to my mom in leu of charges for animal neglect. ADA verbally indicated the terms of the agreement would be mom never owns animals again. ADA finally called back to say she'll set up an apptment. Not owning animals is in mom's best interest. It’s not what she wants but is willing to prevent serving jail time. I don't want a lawyer to suggest fighting charges to my mother. She would go for it. The lawyers I emailed want a consultation with her. If I'm paying, I know she'd try to have the lawyer help her get the animals back regardless of cost to me. Living half way across the country, I can't go with her to tell the lawyer the actual facts. How do I get a lawyer to just facilitate and/or review the agreementI also don't want to pay a lawyer's hourly rates just to listen to my mom's sob stories and conspiracy theories. She can go on for hours deflecting questions. Given the facts presented by the DA at the hearing for the bond to reclaim the seized animals, my personal opinion is that the charges are justified, and she would be found guilty. But even if she was found not guilty, my opinion is that she can't afford the animals. She can't even afford a proper place to live because she spends over half of her extremely low income on the animals and refuses to accept the situation change that caused that several years ago. Updated: Is there a way to have her declared mentally incompetent or something in order have the say in what the lawyer does? She does not prioritize basic necessities like food water and shelter above non-necessities like owning the animals .
