call his office and ask for a set down talk with him now....Geez louise why do lawyers do this ....My lawyer was a good one for me sometimes one will be good for me but not you if that makes any sense...sometimes when I would call I would get his para legal and her answer was always I will ask him and get back to you......I asked for a set down and we set boundries....Its my life you are dealing with and I want to be part of it...I know you are busy but I am paying good money....I get an answer back within 24 hrs and a personal call once a week even if its to say no change He had no problem with that.....

you can switch attys at anytime; there will be a single fee that will be shared. you can file a complaint with the state bar.
You need to find out about your state's work comp laws.

I sure hope your showing up with the attorney for these court times. Don't just rely on him to spoon feed you. Get involved in your own case.
