Do your home wok properly instead of complaining later.

Better to handle the matter tactfully by withdrawing the case from him with relevant files.... ..... Lawyer are not exempted and they can be sued before Consumer court for the service deficiency under the Consumer protection act ... regards

Get back the case bundle from the lawyer andget remaining fees for the work done and engage another lawyer of your choice to proceed with.  But this will not apply to all.  under what ground you think the lawyer is not interested? conducting case, or anwereing or not answering  your calls/questions?

in the  case  of Jacob Mathew  vs. State of Punjab – (2005) 6 SCC 1 (para 18) the Apex Court has held that in law of negligence, professionals such as lawyers, doctors, architects and others are included in the category of persons professing some special skill or skilled persons  generally and a professional may  be held  liable  for negligence on one of the two findings: either he was not possessed of the requisite skill which he professed to have possessed, or, he did not exercise, with reasonable competence in the given case, the skill which he did possess.if there is deficiency in service rendered by the Lawyers, complaint under the Consumer Protection Act, 1986 is maintainable.

You can file a complaint before concerned Bar Association of State level,where disciplinary committee has been made who hear the grievances of cllients against the Advocates.Don,t worry about friends of advocates.Believe on precedure and law.

Mr Ganesh 

All discussions mentioned above are correct but would you PLEASE  let me know that have you obtained receipt for the fee paid to the advocate.To my knowledge normally receipts are not issued to the clients.
