My son needs to appeal the finding of a VOP within 45 days of sentence imposed. He questions why he is not given credit for time served. Time is running out and current lawyer continues to say he will file motion but when questioned, he says he forgot, will do it next week, etc. Don't understand such response and time is drawing near.
Not sure what the question here is...but, stay on the lawyer. If he/she doens’t file then you’re most likely out of luck. Maybe ask for your money back and hire a different lawyer?
