My dad when he got arrested he didn't get an interpreter so i guess when they asked him whether he would like a court appointed lawyer or not he must have said something because now they have sent us a letter saying this is your court appointed lawyers name and everything but the problem is we already hired another lawyer. We don't want the court appointed one we want the one we chose so would we have to pay any fees or something for the court appointed lawyer. Or what should we do????? Please HELP

Have your retained attorney submit an Order of Substitution to the appointed attorney. Call him and tell the attorney you have been retained and entering an appearance. Most have no problem signing an Order of Substitution.
