My friend has been sued in a auto-pedestrian accident. We call the attorney assigned by his auto insurance company but do not receive any replies to our voice mail. How can we find out the status of the law suit on our own? It has been 18 months.

My response:

The insurance company has a duty to respond to you. He may be being paid by the insurance company, but for purposes of your defense, he's YOUR attorney. I would write a respectful, but stern, letter requesting a response, IN WRITING, to your inquiries within 14 calendar days. In the letter, state your questions and tactfully state that if you don't get a response, you may have to consider involving the State Bar, which could cause a "conflict of interest", causing the insurance company having to pay for "Cumis (independant) Counsel."
