I agree with Mr. Millar. In your letter, you may want to state that if you do not hear from the attorney within a certain time period, say 10 days, that you will file a grievance with the North Carolina Bar. Good luck to you.

I agree with the other attorneys, you may need to end up firing this attorney. Non-responsiveness is often a sign of trouble! Don't wait, send a letter return receipt requested and demand they contact you and provide you with a monthly billing ASAP!

Start interviewing new attys. Keep in mind that if you are trying to keep legal costs down, you may not want the attysd to go to court over things that arent critical. Perhaps you should ask if you can take pictures of the posts they left, and then have them removed. Send a letter with a list of the items/things your neighbor has done, and ask atty to advise you what the options are, and the expected cost of each.
It seems to me that the neightbor has not yet fully complied with the Order, but that depends on exactly what was ordered. I think you should take photographs showing the poles in the yard--include enough background context to show clearly that the poles are in your yard or on the adversely possessed land--and then mail or email those photos to your lawyer and ask what he recommends as the next course of action. But you have to give your neighbor a reasonable amount of time to comply with the order. And I suspect that part of the reason you are not hearing back from your lawyer is that he knows you are on a fixed income and he is trying to save you some money, but not having an unneccessary meeting with you. I would discourage you from firing this lawyer and looking for a new one at this time. You need to investigate the reasons for the communication problem first.
