Hi Polgara,

I had a 21-day trial and can tell you that it didn't cost anywhere close to what your current lawyer is attempting to charge. I'd find a new lawyer and fast. I'd request an adjournment and advise why. I think you'll find the judge sympathetic to "why" you need to. After going through the trial, I'd agree that it is a definite possibility to have a lawyer just prep all your paperwork/etc and then handle the proceedings yourself. I think you could also have the lawyer come in at points and speak/conduct part of the trial on your behalf as well if you so choose.

Wishing you all the best. You will get through this and come out on the other side.
