I hired my attorney in April 2017 for a DUI case. Moving forward to December 2017 my attorney's staff notified me on a Wednesday to appear in court Monday morning at 9am. (I live out of state) Travel arrangements were made and I appeared in court Monday morning at 9am like told. My attorney did not show for my trail until 11:45 resulting in the judge not taking my case. I was unaware of the process for trail. I had to rush and plead guilty just to stay on schedule of returning home.
I do not understand why you want to blame someone else for a decision you made to plea. Clearly your attorney had a conflict, made the court aware of the conflict and reported as soon as possible.
