    Default What if Your Lawyer Doesn't Show

    I have my court date in the morning 4/10/06 at 9 a.m. I have been calling my lawyer all week but he wont return my calls if I tell the judge I could not get in touch with my lawyer will he say tough luck or will he give me more time. Thanks

    That would all be up to the judge and how the judge is feeling that day...I'm not sure what the law is about this sort of situation.

    If your lawyer flakes out and is a no show, the judge will give you a chance to get proper representation.....it's a guarantee we have under the law.
