I spoke with an attny re difficult child and PO issues in Sept on the basis of a single consultation. I called back in Oct. to get an appointment again and discuss retaining her. The secretary said she would even have an appointment available until mid- DEc so I scheduled that. Now, she and her sole partner are in there 50-60s and have a very small office working on juvy and small cases, like traffic. The only other person who worked there was the secretary so it seemed odd that she would be that slammed with work. Anyway, I retained her in mid-Dec, she made some phone calls and went to a meeting with PO/super with me. She said she had a call into reentry director and was interested in what he had to say and finding out which GH difficult child would go to and she'd call me back as soon as she knew-- she voluntarily said this without me even asking. I had mentioned earlier that I'd need her on board for a while and she said yes, she could see that. So after we left that day, I went by her office the next day to drop off a copy of the brochure I'd found from reentry program. No one was there so I stuck it thru the mail slot in the door, came home, and called to leave VM about it. I didnt get a return call, so the next week (last week), I called and had to leave anothere VM- no one was answering the phone at all. I also tried to call Tues and a coworker called from her cell phone this morning. Each and every time, we have gotten the answering machine. What could this mean and what should I do? I really hate to try to bring another attny on board because this one heard first-hand how PO and super were avoiding answering wuestions and talking to me like I had no parental rights at all- like telling me "they would let me go to difficult child's IEP mtg". and not giving any answer when asked what PO's requirements were for difficult child getting out of gh, except for super saying "when we feel like it" which is illegal, at least in this state. If it's not out-right illegal, it's certainly against Department of Juvenile Justice policy or regulation.
