My attorney is extremely bad at returning my phone calls and she'll tell me she'll call me at a certain time but either calls hours afterwards, or doesn't call and I have to call her at 4:45. I thought maybe that was normal, but after a few other things (below), I'm thinking she might not be a good attorney.
My attorney and I met with my soon to be ex and his attorney. I had filed a protective order after filing for divorce because he is an extremely unstable person and I feared him. He wanted to see our child every day, wanted her around his unstable family members, etc. I told her before we met with him I absolutely didn't want that to happen and she didn't think it would be a problem. Then as soon as we get into the meeting, she acts like what I wanted was unreasonable, convinced me to drop the protective order and agree to let him and his fam see her every day. She acts nice, but afterward, I'm thinking she really didn't want to fight for me and it was easiest for her to agree with the other side (our meeting was going past 5pm and the judge was waiting). I now know I shouldn't have agreed to that, but I felt like it was 3 against one and maybe something was wrong with me?
What are my options? Should i tell her what she did wasn't acceptable then give her another try? Should I get a new attorney and let him/her inform the judge my last one was bad and we need to renegotiate? Should I file a grievance against her with the Bar? I wouldn't want her to do this to someone poor soul needing to get out of a bad marriage.
