If you are writing to a lawyer to request information on the status of a court case, you should include the case name and number and your contact information. You may also want to specify what kind of information you are seeking. For example, you might ask for a copy of the most recent court filing or an update on the next scheduled court date.
It is essential to be polite and professional in your letter. Remember that lawyers are busy people and may not be able to respond immediately to your request. Therefore, you should be patient when waiting for a response.
Below are some sample letters to attorneys regarding cases you can modify and use accordingly.

Sub: I need to know about the status of my pending court case.
Dear Mr./Ms. ________________,
Greetings! It’s been a while since we’ve spoken about my case. I’m hoping you’ll be able to give me some information so that the matter can move forward quickly- please answer these questions:
- When is the next hearing?
- What kind of progress has been made on this issue up until now ? And how would YOU proceed in similar circumstances (or not)?
- Letting me know what documents are needed from YOUR side will also help speed things along 😉
Looking forward to receiving your response as soon as possible.
