The most common issues that keep cases pending are conflicts with clients such as payment to the attorney, schedule conflicts between the attorney and other pending cases he/she may have in the court, vacation time, sick leave, emergency leave, having a trial take longer than expected and lack of discovery and/or evidence that the court may be waiting on.
