I had to file a nursing home abuse case back in 2015 and the case still has not settled or went to court ..My attorney does not explain things well or tell me what's going on from time to time its to late to pull out now due to lean on case .So how could I ask the the judge to speed up the case and make the other side make a move its been way to long ?? Also what are some other thing I can do if my attorney messes up my mother's case.
YOU can't. Welcome to litigation in the real world. Its an arduous process. Best bet is to address this issue with the existing legal counsel.

This is not the place to ask this question. Your mother has an attorney. If she is physically and mentally capable of doing so, she needs to have a face to face discussion with her lawyer. If she has a guardian, power of attorney, etc., that person needs to do it. Unless you are your mother's representative for such matters, you don't have any right to do it.
Just because I answer your question does not mean that I am your lawyer, or that you should take action based on my answer. I am not your lawyer. I can give you my best guess based on the facts as you present them in your question. Any questions that I ask in my response are rhetorical.
That is a question that you should have your attorney address. You are entitled to an answer that you can understand.
Florida nursing home negligence cases can take years. Be patient. If you have specific questions, why not schedule an in-office appointment with your attorney to discuss the timeline of a FL nursing home abuse case?
