My lawyer won't return my mother / father / wife / brother / sister / son / daughter / other relative / friend / boss's phone calls concerning my case.

The lawyer's professional and ethical responsibilities are to the client. Our office discourages telephone calls from third parties inquiring about a client's case. We have a duty to protect the attorney/client relationship, and general information about hearing dates can be requested of the Clerk of Court.
