first degree assault in NH

PersonA is charged with multiple counts of attempted first degree assault No one was hurt except for PersonA. Person responsible for shooting PersonA was not arrested. PersonA has been incarcerated for 5 months has been indicted and had 1 hearing, pub defender filed motion for discovery and its been almost 30days and it seems like nothing is happening. Lawyers haven’t even fought for bail reduction. 2nd hearing scheduled in two & ½ weeks is there a max amount of time to disclose all discovery? Is there a max amount of time to ask for bail reduction? Is there a law against attorney discussing case with spouse? Is there a law that prohibits wife from testifying against husband? What can I expect at the next hearing? Should I seek private counsel? It seems like the lawyer is expecting to take a plea bargain? What type of jail time can I expect with a deal since he is facing 30 to 60 years? Any chances of probation since first offense? If goes to trial what can I expect? Any advice please. Thanks. God Bless you!
