The 4 charges are assault with deadly weapon, neglant discharge of firearm, felon possession of firearm, and brandishing. Now I have paid 10k for my lawyer he tells me he thinks he can get me off from prison time since all I had was a drug charge that was a felony back in 2010 but it would take some time to find the right time to try. Now what I know so far was since my 2nd arraignment which was Aug 6 he has pissed off the da and the judge by missing my first court date and sending a stand in but failed to communicate properly what he wanted him to do and the judge actually ordered my lawyer to be at the next court date which was sep 21 that was my first pre trial conference and my lawyer tells me this is the best deal iam going to get??, iam also a combat veteran I wanted to try veterans court but my lawyer told me that that was a dumb move.. please never gone thru this before do I just take the 2 years or??
Sorry to answer this way, but no one on the internet can advise you. You can dismiss your attorney if you wish. Your fee agreement should say how you would be billed for work already completed.

I would suggest that you make an appointment and go in and talk to your lawyer about this. It is not uncommon for lawyers to end up scheduled for two locations at once. When that happens, it is normal for them to arrange for another lawyer to stand in for them. Just make sure that you and your lawyer are on the same page, and then make your decision about how to proceed.
This answer creates no attorney-client relationship. I am not your lawyer. This is NOT legal advice. It is a general discussion of legal principles. You should consult with an attorney.
I agree with my colleague, this is not a question that anyone on this forum can answer. The decision to accept or reject a plea deal should be made after careful consideration of the evidence, possible defenses, possible outcomes, etc. And, ideally, made after conferring with an attorney who has earned your trust. I would mention, in case you are not aware, that assault with a deadly weapon is a strike.
