Why won't my lawyer return my telephone calls?

 

A: A lawyer should be responsive to his client's needs. Although I can't tell you exactly why your lawyer won't pick up the phone and return your call, you can remind him of his ethical obligation to return your calls in a timely fashion. Naturally we all get busy at times during the day, and if you can't reach your lawyer by phone, try email or even regular mail or fax.
