Our office receives many phone calls from people already represented by an attorney, often the public defender, who the caller believes is ignoring them, the client. Sometimes, this may be true.

The caller may even rhetorically ask, “Since I’m the client, the attorney has to do what I say, right? I’m paying him, after all.” Is this correct? Click on the following link to find out.
