Is it normal to go a month without hearing from your lawyer after a court hearing?
1 attorney answer
Normal? No. Explainable? Maybe. I can't speak to the lawyer's preparation or knowledge of the case, but we often get to trial and find the judge unwilling to see things our way. As a result, we often choose to change our strategy on the fly. We also occasionally find that some of the witnesses our clients want to put on are not going to be helpful, and given the limited amount of time we have in trial, we choose not to list them. Though they seem to the client to be helpful, sometimes they are just "character" witnesses but can't prove any of the things we actually need. Now, he certainly should be responding to you. But I suggest you continue to try to talk to him. He might feel so badly about losing he is embarrassed to meet.
