My Lawyer Has Disappeared?
You feel: my lawyer has disappeared. If your lawyer has disappeared, you want to know what to do next. However, there are very important things to consider if your lawyer has gone missing or is ignoring you.
Generally, my lawyer has disappeared, is a statement that can indicate that your lawyer has gone missing, ignoring the client, or not communicating properly. There are both legal and financial ramifications that can arise from this situation.
Type of Case
The type of case you have can play a big role in what to do next. However, it is always a good idea to get a free second opinion or free consultation with our law firm.

There are many types of cases from divorce, custody, criminal law, personal injury, wrongful death, and more.
Some attorneys might have not been in contact with you for just a few days or weeks. Other attorneys might have not spoken to you for months or years.
Email if lawyer disappeared?
You may have sent the lawyer or law firm an email, but have got a mailer daemon response indicating that it was never sent properly. That can be because the lawyer has changed their email address. Try asking the law firm or looking online for an up to date email address.
The lawyer also might have responded to your email, but it may have gone to your spam folder. Always check your spam folder to see if the lawyer has responded to you.
Make sure that your email was sent to the correct email address. Also, check your email to see if the lawyer might have responded from a separate email or a different email address (from computer).
You may sometimes be having difficulty reaching your lawyer by a phone call. It is important to leave a voicemail and leave your most up to date contact information.
Check your voicemail to see if the lawyer called you back and left a voicemail for you (from iphone) or samsung etc. If the lawyer does not answer, make sure to leave a voicemail message with correct information.
Letter if my lawyer has disappeared?
It may be helpful to send a communication letter to the lawyer or law firm with your concerns. The lawyer may respond back to you in a written communication as well.
Another common form of communication is text message with an attorney. However, it is usually a less formal type of communication than a written letter or email or phone call.
Meeting With Law Firm
