In most cases, a client is free to change attorneys at just about any time. However, the problem is if you are already represented, it may be difficult to find another attorney who is willing to discuss your case at all due to ethical concerns that may exist from speaking with a client who already has legal representation.
If you are thinking of firing your current lawyer, the first thing you should do is schedule an appointment to address the concerns you have. If you are still unhappy after meeting with your lawyer, you’ll want to send a letter terminating the services of the law firm and requesting your case files. Keep a copy of this letter, as your new lawyer will likely want to see it as proof you have legally and properly terminated the contract.
