How long does it take for a lawyer to get back to you?

Recommended Posts

Just a straight up question. I went to a lawyer i had a great relationship

12 years ago on a similar issue. I walked into her office and she sat down

with me for 10min to BARELY discuss my issue. She said she was pretty

sure i had a legitimate case, but would get back to me in "a couple of

days" - I presumed to schedule an actual consultation with facts and

points...

 

Its been 11 business days now, and 4 messages have not been returned.

I know she was working on a big case when i stopped in, but i CANNOT

go into the coming week without some kind of guidance... do a assume

she isnt interested and find another lawyer, or is it common to go off the

grid for almost a month while on another case?

Depending on the case, she could be busy for  months.  It sounds like she saw you as a courtesy and simply doesn't have the time to deal with your issue now.  You are free to consult another attorney or you can wait.

That's probably what I'd do -- especially if "i [could not] go into the coming week without some kind of guidance."

It's not unheard of, but most lawyers will have an assistant return calls in situations like that.

How can I get a copy of my rental agreement other than the landlord

 

Why did you tag this onto a completely unrelated thread on a board that has nothing to do with landlord-tenant issues?

 

That said, the answer is to look in your file cabinet where you keep your copy of the lease.
