Re: medical bills
Leave a message with the lawyer's office that you will go to the bar association if you do not hear from him within a reasonable time (you decide the time). At same time, hand deliver a letter to his office stating the same thing, and have someone sign for it. If you do not hear from him, go to the bar association and file a complaint.
