Fury with Lawyers

I have a legal aid lawyer for dealing with my landlady. He *doesn't answer his phone* and he doesn't return calls. These are things I consider required for basic competence as a professional *anything*, and should go double for lawyers.

I've been after him to write a letter for me for a month. If that letter doesn't get received within five days I may be out on the street. Short of going down to his office and sitting on his desk until my letter goes out in the mail, I'm not sure what to do about him at this point. Pay cash for a better lawyer isn't really an option.

And if this goes to a judge before I can get a lawyer, the judge, being a lawyer, and being in New Jersey, will defend the interests of lawyers.

Robin Hood, where are you?
