Question: “I have been in a car accident and I have a lawyer representing me; however, I feel like my lawyer is not representing me appropriately. What do I do if I want to change lawyers?”
It is important for clients to know that they have the right, at any time, to change their lawyer. Lawyers provide a professional service. If you are unhappy with the service you are receiving, you have the right to seek it elsewhere. You can terminate your relationship with your current lawyer by simply informing the lawyer that you no longer wish to be represented by him or her. Often, this can be an uncomfortable thing to do and many newly hired lawyers will just send a letter to the former lawyer confirming that the client has now hired him or her and that the former lawyer needs to send the client’s file to the new lawyer. This alleviates the client from having to deal with the uncomfortable situation.
