The current attorney on record is absolutely non-responsive. The client has requested this attorney repeatedly to file an ex-parte to seek immediate relief from the court but this attorney simply refuses to do so.
The court order during the recently held hearing was clear and specific; even the FAOAH has been filed and signed. Yet, the other side continues to ignore this order and has not complied with this order. So the client wants this attorney to file an ex-parte against the other side but this attorney is not willing to file the ex-parte.
There is still money left in the retainer so immediate substitution is not an option. Can the client contact the presiding Judge directly to seek much needed immediate relief? If so, what is the process involved? Thank you.NOTE: This is not just about a Attorney-Client dispute. This is about the client trying to file an ex-parte against the other side for not following the court order and this attorney not being responsive. Any answer that provides direction on how the client can seek/get the immediate relief, is greatly appreciated. There is a court order already in place. It is just the attorney not wanting to file the exparte that is causing extreme grief to the client. Because the attorney is still on the attorney on record, this prohibits the client from filing the ex-parte on their own. Will writing a letter to the presiding judge is the proper way to address this unique situation?
