Changing Lawyers

by | Mar 18, 2023 | Firm News |

Did you know that a client always has the right to switch lawyers? That’s right, an attorney can be replaced at any point of a litigation. Switching attorneys may not always be the best thing for your case, but there are certain situations where it should be considered. Here are a few:

  1. When your lawyer fails to communicate responsively.
  2. When you are unable to pay your lawyer’s fees.
  3. When you cannot agree upon a strategy or budget for the case.
  4. When you lose confidence in your lawyer’s advice.

If any of these apply to your relationship with your attorney, it’s time to have a conversation. It the relationship cannot be repaired, then it may be time for a change in counsel.
