Hello all! I live in Texas and have been set up on some cases. I had informed my attorney through email I had heard around town that his reputation was terrible and I wanted to help him in any way possible so my cases could be defeated. In turn my family is very active in the community and I told him that upon completion of him doing his absolute best he could to help me, I would do everything I could to help clean up the reputation that he had. His response through email and again in person was a very simple threat but I took to be a physical threat. His response was "You better be careful!" On top of the threat he has only filed one motion, is always late to every court appearance, and almost never gives any of my correspondences a reply since he has become my attorney and is trying to force me into trial now. Are these all cases of attorney misconduct or malpractice? He is now my 2nd court appointed attorney and the judge informed me that he would be my last. I have no money because I cannot work. How can I legally get this guy off of my case and be given another court appointed attorney? I do plan to file a grievance against this man and his practice which I know gets him off of my case and I'm not in the least bit concerned about what he turns over to the D.A. as information he found out while my attorney but, how can I move the judge to appoint one more attorney to my case and make sure that this newly appointed attorney won't jack me around as the first two individuals have done?
