We are often asked: "I already have a lawyer but I am not happy with them. Can I switch to your office?"
This is one of the most common questions we get. If you are not happy with your lawyer, you can fire that lawyer and retain our office during any stage of the case. You do not even have to provide a reason for the previous attorney's discharge. You should also know you will not have to pay us an additional fee.
All lawyers who work on your case (even the one you fired) may be entitled to a fee. We will share their fee and our fee. This will not come out of the clients share but will be worked out between the attorneys.
Will also realize that firing your lawyer can be an awkward and uncomfortable process. Once you retain our office, we will handle all communication with your old lawyer and arrange for a transfer of the file. If your old lawyer is entitled to reimbursement of expenses, we will reimburse them for you, and recoup those expenses from the recovery once your case is resolved. All communication will be handled by us and you never have to talk to him or her again.
Switching lawyers will also not delay your case. We are very familiar with taking over files from other attorneys. The process is normally seamless and easy. We will receive the file from the former attorney, notify the defendants attorneys, the Court, and any other necessary parties and proceed from where you left off.
Once we have the file, we will proceed to give you case the dedication and devotion it deserves.
